Plastic surgeries are no longer the taboo they used to be, as more and more people undergo cosmetic surgeries which are both invasive and non-invasive.

The latest cosmetic surgery statistics from the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons further supports this growth. In 2018, more than 28,000 procedures took place in the UK; while breast enlargement, breast reduction, and eyelid surgery were identified as the top three procedures performed countrywide.

The official statistics, of course, represent only those who have had surgery and those in the UK, yet, there are many more individuals in the UK and around the world who are interested in the various surgeries available to them and therefore embark on a mission of information.

It is the initial interest that encouraged cosmetic surgery specialists Flawless.org to investigate the growing trends.

Flawless.org identified the top 9 cosmetic surgeries around the world, and then looked at the countries that Google these surgeries the most – revealing the top searched per country. Flawless utilised data from SEMrush, and the countries included: UK, Germany, France, Italy, and Spain.
