More Americans undergo plastic surgery than people in any other country in the world.

But when countries' populations are taken into account, five other nations have more cosmetic surgeries per capita than the U.S., according to data from Trend Monitor and graphed by The Economist.

The list differs somewhat from one compiled by Cosmetic Surgery Today, which only looks at the total number of people going under the knife.

See which countries made the list below:
