Cadogan Clinic react to BAAPS annual stats

The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons(BAAPS) annual statistics were released this week on Monday 8th January 2016. The statistics revealed that there was a sharp increase in the popularity of cosmetic surgery in the UK. 

Total surgical procedures hit a new high of 51,140 – up from 45,406 in 2014. These statistics overturns a recent decline that was attributed to the recession and the scandal over faulty breast implants. What was also significant about these statistics is that the number of men looking to have things lifted, tucked and augmented has rapidly increased and even doubled in the last 10 years.

Cadogan’s own consultant plastic surgeon Mr. Bryan Mayou commented on these statistics via BBC News, suggesting that the rise in cosmetic surgery over the last year in men in particular is down to changing attitudes – it has become more acceptable and common for men to undergo cosmetic surgery. In Mr. Mayou’s own words, “there is much less of a taboo, they all talk about it and it is not a secret as such anymore.” Mr. Mayou also appeared on Sky News to talk about the rise in these stats.
