BAAPS Reports Double Digit Rise in Cosmetic Surgery
A recent report from the BAAPS (British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons) showed there is a huge boost in the number of women and men that opted for cosmetic surgery during 2013, in UK. According to the report there is a 17% rise on the number of cosmetic operations that took place during 2013 (comparing to 2012). BAAPS claims that liposuction, neck and facelift as well as breast implants had the highest increase in popularity.
The procedure with the highest increase was Liposuction which had a 43% rise comparing to 2012 (among women). Breast implants, followed by eyelid surgery, facelift, neck lift and breat reduction were the most popular procedures during 2013.
It is also important to notice that 91% of those who opted for cosmetic surgery were women. But we should underline that the number of men who had cosmetic operation had a 16% rise!
The President of BAAPS, Rajiv Grover commented: “Both the UK economy and the British public seem to be well on the way to regaining their shape with the most impressive rise in demand for cosmetic surgery we have seen since the onset of the recession in 2008” and added “Patient confidence and also consumer confidence has returned, with Britons choosing to spend on procedures with proven track records such as liposuction, which remains the gold standard for body contouring”.
