America’s Most Vainest Cities 2012

Men’s Health Announces Tampa, FL residents go the greatest lengths to look good and Des Moines, IA is the least image-conscious city.

One might assume that Southern California must be the capital of vanity. Think again.

Beverly Hills and Newport Beach are among the top cities with more plastic surgeons per capita than anywhere else in the country, but apparently it takes more than that to snag the title of  the most vain spot in America.

The Men’s Health says, “We added up each city’s rates for cosmetic procedures (American Society of Plastic Surgeons), Botox users, folks who go for dye jobs, and people who will spend anything to look younger (Experian Marketing Services). We also tallied sales of at-home hair dyes, teeth whiteners and shapewear (SimplyMap), as well as per-capita rates of cosmetic dentists, plastic surgeons and tanning salons (American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, AMA, and SimplyMap). Finally, Foursquare told us where people check into those salons most often.”

Here’s their Top 20 list:

1.  Tampa, FL
