International Study of Aesthetic/Cosmetic Procedures
Performed in 2013

 

Please respond by March 31, 2014

At the request of the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS), this study is being conducted by Industry Insights, Inc.

This study represents the fourth comprehensive collection of worldwide data and scientific analysis related to procedures in aesthetic plastic surgery.

Please provide the total number of each procedure that you performed in 2013. Enter zero (0) if you did not perform the particular procedure.

The following counting method should be used:

  • If multiple procedures were performed in the same operative session (ex.: facelift & nose surgery; breast augmentation & tummy tuck) count each procedure separately.
     
  • Upper and lower eyelid surgery should be counted as 1 procedure.
     
  • For breast surgeries, count both breasts as 1 procedure.
When you complete the survey, you will receive a unique number that will be included in a random drawing of 20 discounts of $200 each toward any ISAPS course or your registration for the 2014 Biennial ISAPS Congress in Rio de Janeiro. Please print the confirmation page and check the winning numbers on the ISAPS website.
