ISAPS International Survey on Aesthetic/Cosmetic

Procedures Performed in 2011


Methodology:
Survey participants completed a two-page, English-based questionnaire that focused on the number of
surgical and non-surgical procedures they performed in 2011.
The International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ISAPS) issued an invitation to participate in the
study to approximately 20,000 Plastic Surgeons whose contact information is housed in its proprietary
database.
In addition, a request was made that all National Societies encourage their
members/constituents to take part in the survey.
The American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) and the Brazilian Society provided special
assistance to this years study. Specifically, ASAPS permitted the use of data collected from its annual
survey of U.S. Plastic Surgeons, and the Brazilian Society heavily promoted the ISAPS survey to its
members. Based on these efforts, the results include responses from 431 U.S. plastic surgeons and 172
plastic surgeons from Brazil.
Data from a total of 996 plastic surgeons were compiled for this survey.
Final figures have been projected to reflect international statistics and are exclusively based on the
estimated number of Plastic Surgeons in each country and the respondent sample. This International
Survey is focused entirely on board certified (or national equivalent) Plastic Surgeons.
To aid in tallying the world-wide estimate of plastic surgeons, representatives from National Societies
provided the counts for over 90% of the 32,000 total estimated plastic surgeons. For cases in which the
National Society did not provide its countrys total, a regression equation was used to estimate the
number of plastic surgeons in the country based on its population size and Gross Domestic Product.
Studies such as this must often address outlying responses. Though the outlying values may be
legitimate, their presence can distort the averages, which provide the base of the estimated projections.
A two pass process was followed in which responses that exceeded three standard deviations from
the aggregate mean were set equal to the aggregated mean value.
With the exception of the United States and Brazil, each countrys extrapolation base (its average
procedures per plastic surgeon) includes data from all respondents of the countrys respective
continent. A weighting system was employed that emphasized responses from the particular country.
Caution is urged when observing year-to-year comparisons, because studies such as this can experience
substantial variances within specific procedures. The pool of responding physicians varies from year to
year and the sample sizes for specific countries may significantly fluctuate between years.
The International Survey on Aesthetic/Cosmetic Procedures Performed in 2011was compiled, tabulated,
and analyzed by Industry Insights, Inc. (www.industryinsights.com), an independent research firm based
in Columbus, OH. The survey leader was Scott Hackworth, a CPA and research analyst who along with
his firm has conducted various forms of research on trends in Aesthetic Plastic Surgery for over 15 years.
