Global Beauty: Fast Facts

Global Beauty Lives there a person anywhere in the U.S. who does not know about Botox, the virtually instant wrinkle remover? With almost three million cases in 2004, it is the most popular cosmetic procedure requested and used in the U.S.

But what about other nations? What are Asians, South Americans, Europeans and Arabs doing to enhance their appearances?

According to surveys taken by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the top procedure in many Asian nations is eyelid surgery because many Asians want a more “Westernized look.” Brazilians, however, ask for liposuction most often because they are on the beaches so much with bare bodies on display
