9. United Kingdom
The UK averages about 30,000 breast augmentation surgeries per year which cost around 7,000-9,000 US dollars a pop, no pun intended. Since most of the augmentations are for purely cosmetic purposes as opposed to actual medical purposes (like reconfiguring the breast after a mastectomy), most of the procedures cost the customer out of pocket. This indicates a real, deep-down psychological need for perfect boobs. And what drives that need? Is it the fact that the UK is one of the world’s foremost fashion centers? Perhaps. But with female icons like Victoria Beckham sporting big ol’ boobies on a body that has about a 2% fat content, it’s really no surprise. Big breasts and twig-like bodies is the quintessential trend in the UK.
