America leads the world in plastic surgery procedures.

That's according to a new survey by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons.

It found that there were 6.3 million surgeries and 8.3 million non-surgical procedures, such as chemical peels, laser hair removal and Botox injections, performed by plastic surgeons around the world in 2011.

Just over 31 percent, or 3.1 million procedures, were done in the U.S.

Brazil was a close second to the U.S.

Breast augmentation was the leading type of plastic surgery in the U.S., while liposuction or fat removal was the top plastic surgery procedure worldwide.
