So not many Canadians would be into paying for non-essential cosmetic surgeries and vanity procedures that aren't covered by their health plan, it would be too expensive for most of them.

I have no doubt there's probably some very wealthy Canadians, both men and women, who can afford to pay for it out of their own pockets who will get the odd nip and tuck here and there and they most likely go to specialists out of country to get it done.

Come to Yaletown, the land of duck lips. LOL

Overall though, I believe it is less than the US. Botox is popular though.

Is that what you attract when you are in Vancouver?

Canada, like anywhere if full of beautiful people. A friend from Montreal ALWAYS comments when he is in Vancouver how fit and healthy looking people seem to be.

He might have mixed that up with America.

Thanks but I'll pass on the land of duck lips. I really do prefer being a thin-lipped, green-handed country hick gardening granny in jeans and T's down in the dirt out here in the sticks with the wild critters and bugs.

About the botox thing, and duck lips fillers, etc., it isn't covered in BC by BCMSP insurance. They have to pay for it out of their own pockets or some other private arrangement and I just can't see a lot of average income working single women in Canada wanting to pay on a regular basis for that sort of thing for the sake of vanity and hooking a mate. I don't care if they're night-clubbers or not, I think they have to be more frugal with their money and maybe even a bit more self assured in Canada than what vain women might be in other countries.

Here's a list from Revenue Services Canada of cosmetic medical procedures that are not covered by health insurance in Canada and consequently not eligible as expenses with Revenue Canada:

Which medical expenses are not eligible?

There are some aestheticians around every large city who are doing facial fillers, botox, laser skin treatments, and a few other simple "outpatient" services in their offices. These are pretty minor aesthetic treatments. They aren't necessarily easy to detect, especially if they're done well. These businesses seem to do well, they stay open, so they must have customers.

Just a casual observation, but major procedures like breast implants, nose jobs, etc. are far more common stateside than in Canada. It's still quite unusual to meet someone up here who has had that much major "work" done. I'm also glad that the fake-and-bake look isn't as common here.
