Cosmetic Surgery Procedures Liverpool – BAAPS Statistics

 

According to the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, the economy may be shrinking but so are waistlines around the UK, in particular male ones. In spite of a climate of financial austerity and a burgeoning breast implant scandal over the last year, Britons have clearly not lost faith in the benefits of cosmetic surgery. Audit figures from the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (www.baaps.org.uk) today reveal that the number of procedures continued to increase steadily by nearly 6% increase on average (similar rise to 2009 and 2010) and rather unusually, not even one individual procedure decreased in popularity.

The number of surgical procedures in 2011 showed a rise of 5.8% from 2010 to a total of43,069 and their order of popularity remained entirely unchanged. The most impressive stats have been recorded specifically in male tummy tucks (abdominoplasty), which showed an increase of 15%.

For the first time, the audit included fat transfer procedures (where fat is taken from one part of the body and injected elsewhere – mainly into the face to restore volume).

Highlights:

 

  • 43,069 surgical procedures were carried out by BAAPS members in 2011, a 5.8%increase from 2010, when 38,274 were performed
  • Women had 38,771 procedures, up from 34,413 (a respectable increase of 5.8%) in line with demand for male surgery remained which increased by 5.6% rise overall (to 4,298 from 4,017 last year)
  • Male surgery continues to account for 10% of all cosmetic surgery procedures
  • Breast augmentation (‘boob jobs’) maintained a slow but constant growth of 6.2%from 9,418 to 10,003 in 2011 – continuing to hold its place as the commonest procedure of all, its numbers nearly twice as high as the next most popular surgery
  • ‘Man boob’ ops or Gynaecomastia kept its place as the 2nd most common procedure for men, rising by 7% from 741 to 790. Male liposuction also went up by8% to 511 from 473 in 2010
  • Tummy tucks (abdominoplasty) proved popular with both sexes, with a rise of 7%from 3,039 to 3,251 in women but a whopping 15% increase in male demand (108 to 124).
  • Fat transfer procedures went up 5% for both sexes, ranking 8th in popularity for women and 6th for men, from 2,430 to 2,551 combined.
