Plastic and reconstructive surgery drives a $6.5 billion global products market

Plastic and reconstructive surgery, whether for reconstructive procedures following traumatic, cancer or other clinically indicated condition or simply for cosmetic purposes, is performed over 6 million times annually worldwide.

The highest volume procedures, despite being limited by their need to be financed out-of-pocket, are cosmetic procedures. However, the demand for cosmetic procedures has stimulated an industry that is increasingly being leveraged for the benefit of clinically-indicated (read: reimbursed) reconstructive procedures.

Below is illustrated the top aesthetic and reconstructive procedures globally.
