Cosmetic Surgeries in UK Increase to 13% in 2015

The number of cosmetic surgeries done in 2015 increased by 13 percent, revealed the latest data released by the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS).

The most popular procedures that women underwent were breast enlargement, eyelid surgery, face and neck operations, and breast reductions, totaling to 46,526.

Men chose eyelid surgery, followed by nose jobs, breast reduction, and liposuction and pinning back ears. And while men make up 9 percent of operations in the UK, the figure has almost doubled in the past decade from 2,440 in 2005 to 4,614 in 2015. Eyelid surgery was the next most popular operation in the UK, rising by 12 percent and there was a 16% climb in face or neck lifts.

Some 6,246 breast reduction operations were performed, up by 13 percent. However, liposuction operations saw the biggest jump in popularity, climbing by a fifth since 2014 to 5,551.

Consultant plastic surgeon and former BAAPS president, Rajiv Grover, said, "The audit has shown that demand for cosmetic surgery continues to increase following the quieter period in 2014 which mirrored the British economy. There is a danger however that this presents the image of cosmetic surgery as a commodity, so the public must always be warned that an operation is not something that can simply be returned to the shop if you don't like it."

Consultant plastic surgeon and Baaps council member Ash Mosahebi told that the rise may be down to people spending more on luxury items and the pressures of social media. "And I would say the Botox generation who got older using Botox and fillers, those things are not working any more for those age groups so they're taking the next step up and that is surgical options."
