It also said that more plastic surgery is performed in the U.S. than in any other country, CBS News reported.

In the U.S., liposuction now accounts for 18.8 percent of plastic surgery procedures, said the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

That's followed by breast augmentation (17 percent) and eyelid lifts (13.5 percent. Breast augmentation was the leading type of plastic surgery in the U.S. for a decade, CBS News reported.

Yes it was breast augmentation and eyelid surgery on the top of the list, now it is the liposuction. Both men and women who are significantly overweight are the ones to undergo liposuction. It can be conducted on multiple areas of the body. More about the post-op care can be read here http://www.cosmeticsurgerytoronto.com/procedures/body-contouring/liposuction/
