Five most popular cosmetic procedures
New statistics have been unveiled by the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (BAAPS) which reveal the most popular procedures undergone by woman in the United Kingdom last year. There were over 40,000 procedures performed in private surgeries alone last year, but what are the most popular cosmetic surgeries?
Breast Augmentation, or breast enlargement surgery is the process of increasing the size, and adjusting the symmetry of the breasts, with the use of the implants. Our surgeons use two different types of FDA approved implants, and a discussion as to which will be better suited to you will occur pre surgery.
On the opposite end of the spectrum is Breast Reduction surgery, which results in reducing the breast in order to give it a more uplifted appearance. This procedure can help to reduce strain placed on the back and shoulders, and provides immediate results which continue to improve.
The number of face and neck lifts performed last year was at an all-time high, with women looking to a more discreet form of anti-aging surgery. Results are meant to breathe new life into your appearance, helping to give a more youthful look.
Liposuction saw the biggest increase in surgical procedures for woman last year, with a 10 percent increase over the previous year. This was as a response to the non-surgical options for fat removal which were mostly ineffective. The results of liposuction are mainly permanent, which is why it has seen such an increase in popularity.
Eyelid surgery, or Blepharoplasty is used to remove excess skin and fat from the eyes. This is usually teamed with “eye bag” removal surgery, which is known as a quadrilateral blepharoplasty; which is another form of discreet anti-aging surgery. Eyelid surgery has continued to grow in popularity, with the number of surgeries being performed remaining the same over the past two years.
