There were about 14.7 million plastic surgery procedures performed worldwide in 2011. Noninvasive surgeries accounted for nearly half of all plastic surgery procedures, and more than 20% of those were for injections of the botulinum toxin, or Botox®, to temporarily smooth wrinkles and lines. This procedure is most popular in the United States, China and Japan. Lipoplasty, more commonly referred to as liposuction, removes excess body fat and is the most consistently popular invasive surgical procedure. In 2011, more than 2.1 million lipoplasty surgeries were performed, many of those in the US, Brazil and China.
