OK, take a stab at this question. Which U.S. city has the most plastic surgeons per 100,000 residents? It has to be Dallas, Phoenix, Manhattan, maybe Beverly Hills, right?
Bzzzzzzzzt. Wrong. Survey says…
It seems that RealSelf checked into the density of plastic surgeons and found the number one city to be…
Miami, Florida with 3.90 plastic surgeons for every 100,000 residents. Who knew? Must be all that sunshine coupled with the young focus of places like South Beach that makes it prime turf for the aesthetic industry.
On to second place. You will NEVER get this one! Salt Lake City, Utah. Huh? All of those good Mormons getting nips and tucks? Well, it turns out that living at altitude with lots of UV rays and lots of sunny days every year can beat up on the skin. Also, Utah has the youngest marrying age in the nation, so mothers who are still young want to look young. Hello tummy tuck! Salt Lake has 3.12/100,000.
L.A. comes in third, with 2.98/100,000. Cali has three cities in the top 10. The other California cities are San Jose in fourth and San Francisco in sixth. That probably surprises some people. San Fran? Isn’t all that fog good for your skin?
Surely, Dallas has to be next, right? No, but the next city is in Texas — Austin. Austin has 2.78 plastic surgeons per 100,000 residents and is fifth.
Come on, where’s Manhattan? New York comes in eighth with 2.61/100,000.
Beyond Salt Lake City, are you ready for some more shockers? In seventh? Grand Rapids, Michigan. What? In ninth, Tampa, Florida. And in tenth? How about Baltimore, Maryland to round out the surprises. Baltimore has 2.48 plastic surgeons for every 100,000 people. Must have something to do with the soft shell crabs or else the Orioles make everyone develop frown lines!
