The latest official inspection from the department of British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons showed results that over 28,000 cosmetic surgeries were carried out in the year of 2018, which is a 0.1% increase on the previous year’s percentage.
Even with some procedures having more demand, like liposuction, which has increased by a percent of 9%, there was a drop of 15% in eyebrow lifting surgeries for women & a 4% drop for men. Cosmetic surgeries for males, which have been rising during recent years has also dropped by a percent of 4.7% altogether as treatments that don’t require patients to go under the knife gain ground.
A recent study conducted by LaingBusson shows that there has been a boom in the non-surgical cosmetic market in recent years as the treatment modes slowly become more affordable for the general public while being socially acceptable.
According to the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, breast augmentation surgery has reigned as the top procedure among their employees in the year 2018, but the number 7,745 was a 6% drop from 2017’s figures. Breast reduction surgeries came in second, which had a 6% overall increase. The third most popular treatment, blepharoplasty, which is a surgery done on eyelids dropped by a total of 4%.
