One in five Brits interested in seeking liposuction procedure
Whilst the nation’s widening waistlines are increasingly under the spotlight, new research from Mintel has found that Brits are surprisingly open to going under the knife to achieve weight-loss results. Indeed, today as many as one in five Brits say they would consider undergoing excess skin removal or liposuction.
This new research revealed that almost a quarter (22%) of Brits say they would consider having excess skin removed – including 18% who have not yet undergone excess skin removal and 4% who have experienced it in the past and would do so again in the future. Meanwhile, as many as a fifth (19%) of Brits said they would consider having liposuction in the future, including 2% who have already undergone this procedure and 17% who have not yet had it but would consider doing so in the future.
Nearly three in ten (27%) Brits who have experienced or would be interested in having cosmetic surgery admitted that they had or would consider having cosmetic surgery as a “quick fix” to an area of their appearance that they weren’t happy with.
As well as weight-loss related procedures, the research looked at consumers interest in other cosmetic procedures and found the most popular potential procedures of interest include – teeth whitening (40%), permanent hair removal (27%) and skin treatments (21%). Other areas of future interest include tattoo and mole removal (20%), breast reduction/enlargement and lift (16%) and eyebrow/eyelid and lift (16%).
