What Canadians Research When It Comes to Beauty

While the United States may have a reputation as plastic surgery central, RealSelf data shows we’re not alone. More than 1 million Canadians have visited RealSelf since March 2015, up 21% compared to the previous quarter. About 75% of them are women and they’re researching a variety of topics, the top three relating to breasts, tummies, and noses.

Canadians have a lot in common with Americans when it comes to beauty procedures. They’re slightly more interested in breast augmentation and implants; 15% of Canadian traffic to RealSelf focuses on the chest, compared to 10% of American traffic to the same topics. Noses are getting a lot of attention; they’re the third most popular topic searched by Canadians, three percentage points higher than for American searches.

Saskatchewan, a Midwestern province with a population of roughly 1.1 million, shows a special interest in breast surgeries, with 121 pages of breast-related content viewed for every 1,000 people. Breast-related topics make up 26% of all traffic from Saskatchewan.
