With the end of one year and beginning of another year, clinic comparison website WhatClinic.com have taken time to have a look at cosmetic surgery trends in 2014 and come up with their own predictions for cosmetic surgery in 2015.
They have identified the top cosmetic surgery trends of last year. And what was the most popular?
Rhinoplasty, better known as nose jobs. This procedure rose by 1,200% in 2014, while nasal tip surgery saw an increase of 763%.
Last year, according to WhatClinic’s research, also saw enquiries for mini facelifts increase as well as eye-lift surgery, which have increased by 578%.
Combating weight issues was popular last year too, with mini abdominoplasty, full abdominoplasty and lipoabdominoplasty being popular choices.
Liposuction is the third most popular surgical treatment in the UK, with fat transfer close behind in fourth and tummy tucks in seventh place, in terms of enquiries. Despite already being constantly popular, enquiries for liposuction have risen by 69% in the past 12 months, while fat transfer enquiries are up 166% and tummy tucks up 68%.
The director of WhatClinic.com said: “Not only is the market huge – it’s growing at a phenomenal rate. With obesity a growing concern, it’s no surprise that bariatric procedures are on the rise. These figures confirm that in the UK, breast augmentation and nose jobs are more popular then ever.
“With demand so high, it’s crucial that patients have access to information about the credentials and qualifications of their chosen practitioner. We advise anyone considering going under the knife, to find a practitioner who is qualified, experienced and totally transparent about the risks involved. Don’t be afraid to ask about qualifications and insurance cover.”
WhatClinic predict 2015 top five procedures:
1. Neck liposuction
2. Lip reduction
4. Gynaecology surgery
5. Chin implant
