Record number of Britons have cosmetic surgery

Record number of Britons have cosmetic surgery

The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons has published research today showing that more than 51,000 Britons underwent cosmetic surgery in 2015.

All procedures saw an increase in demand, with surgeons reporting that celebs admitting to procedures could be a driver in increased acceptance of aesthetic procedures. While breast augmentation remains the most popular treatment for women, face/neck lifts have increased by 16% since 2014, and liposuction is up 20%.

The number of men having cosmetic surgery in 2015 has nearly doubled in a decade to 4,614, with face/neck lifts, brow lifts, eyelid surgery and rhinoplasty all showing a big increase over the 12 months measured.

“While it is good news that cosmetic improvements are growing in acceptance, clients need to realise that having surgery is not something to be considered lightly,” says Dr Mike Comins of Hans Place Practice. “At our clinic we offer a variety of temporary and semi-permanent solutions that allow clients to achieve the look they want without having the downtime associated with more invasive techniques. For example, our Vaser Liposuction, a fat-removing treatment performed using state-of-the-art ultrasound, offers a walk in/walk out alternative to the more invasive surgical liposuction.”
