You Might Be Surprised at the Most Common Plastic Surgery Procedures in Your State

Most popular plastic surgeries by state LocateADocBeauty is, for certain, in the eye of the beholder, but how does the background change that view? Plastic surgery is becoming more and more prevalent across the United States. The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery recently put out some stats about the popularity of procedures by state. Lets take a look at a few different procedures and see where they are most popular.

Buttock Augmentation

Maybe it stems from all of the time they spend sitting on the subway or the long stretches of the year that jeans are needed to stay warm, but New Yorkers definitely like big butts. The Brazilian Butt Lift become more popular than ever in New York State last year. Makes you think twice about what they mean by "The Big Apple".

Tummy Tucks

Georgia is known for it's delicious peaches and distinct southern accents. It turns out that Georgians love six packs more than ever these days. The most common plastic surgery procedure last year was the tummy tuck. The South may rise again, but hopefully their waist measurements don't.

Breast Augmentation

Utah is known for its beautiful landscapes and large Mormon population. Surprising or not, the plastic surgery picked by more Utah residents than any other is breast augmentation. The enterprising undergarment maker might want to reconsider moving to Salt Lake City.


We all know and love this state for its vast cultural and economic value to our nation. Thousands of young people head West every year hoping to strike it rich in one of the many major metropolitan areas. If you guessed that rhinoplasty was the most common plastic surgery procedure performed in Cali then you hit it right on the nose! OUCH!

Well, our country might not be perfect, but at least we are trying to get there.
