Brazil has officially beaten the United States as the world’s capital of cosmetic surgery, Rappler reported on August 4.
According to a report by the O Estado de Sao Paulo paper in Brazil, the country’s surgeons performed 1.49 million cosmetic surgical procedures in 2013, out-stripping the United States’ number by at least 40,000.
The reason for the increase in Brazilian cosmetic enhancements is the country’s credit availability that allows patients to pay for treatments and operations via payment installments over a prolonged period of time. This is a realistic way for many people, not just the wealthy, to undergo surgery.
Liposuction and breast augmentation are the most popular procedures in Brazil, although rhinoplasty procedures continue to grow.
