You would assume some places are crawling with plastic surgeons — Manhattan, Beverly Hills, Dallas, L.A., Phoenix, to name a few. Surely, not little old Danville!
OK, so what cities would you guess have the most plastic surgeons? But let’s do this per capita, meaning not the sheer number of plastic surgeons in a city, but the number per 100,000 residents. Now what would you say?
In statistics compiled by RealSelf, the number one city is…wait for it…Miami, Florida. Yes, Miami has 3.90 plastic surgeons for every 100,000 residents. It seems the glamour of South Beach, coupled with the unending sunshine of Florida make it prime for plastic surgery.
OK, so Miami’s not all that surprising, but you will never, never ever, guess the city in second place. Salt Lake City, Utah. What? 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. And another thing — 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 plastic surgeons per 100,000 peeps.
L.A. comes in third, bringing some semblance of order to the statistics! L.A. has 2.98/100,000. It is one of three California cities in the top 10 (Danville didn’t make the list! Bogus.). The other California cities are San Jose in fourth and San Francisco in sixth. That probably surprises some people.
Come on now, it has to be Dallas next, right? No, but the next city is in Texas — Austin. Austin has 2.78 plastic surgeons per 100,000 residents and is fifth.
And how about those denizens of Park Avenue? Where’s Manhattan, right? New York comes in eighth with 2.61/100,000.
Now for the 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. Maybe the perennial ineptitude of the Orioles makes Baltimore people develop more frown lines.
