As with every country in Asian-Pacific, the two most popular cosmetic operations are double eyelid surgery in first place with augmentation rhinoplasty a solid but distant second. Breast augmentation comes in at third.
Facial bone contouring such as cheek and jaw reductions and even facelifts are not as popular as elsewhere, although recent trends suggest an uptick in interest stimulated by relentless promotion of such surgery in nearby countries and a growing interest in pop celebrities undergoing facial slimming procedures.
Taiwan surgeons have responded to this growing demand by seeking advanced education in newer techniques and upgrading to the latest technology.
Increased competition both within the country and between countries has led some younger practitioners to travel abroad to become more familiar with international trends.
Already at a very high level, the breadth and quality of services continues to progress.
