The 20 Richest Plastic Surgeons in the World

Plastic surgery can trace its roots to ancient civilizations such as India, Egypt, and Greece, with great advancements evolving over time, especially in the latter half of the 20th century. Today, the field includes a wide range of cosmetic and reconstructive surgical options – with technological innovation creating more effective, safer, and accessible treatment choices all the time.

At a time when physical appearance seems to hold greater significance, plastic surgery, as an industry, has seen great growth. According to Indeed, in 2024, the average base salary for a plastic surgeon in the U.S. was $298,490/year. So, while plastic surgeons have the ability to transform one’s physical appearance, they have a chance to amass great wealth through their expertise – given time and an opportunity to display their creative talents.
