We live in a society now where image matters more and more. The very fact that selfie sticks even exist should highlight the fact that we are increasingly becoming a nation obsessed with our looks.
According to recent figures released by Baaps (the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons) there was a 12.6% increase in the numbers of cosmetic procedures on the previous year with 51,140 procedures in 2015 compared to 45,406 in 2014.
The effects of the faulty breast implant scandal, caused by the French firm Poly Implant Prothese, appears to have subsided and people are returning to cosmetic surgery with gusto.
90% of procedures are still predominantly for women with the most common being breast augmentations followed by eyelid surgery and then face and neck surgery.
Consultant plastic surgeon and Baaps council member Ash Mosahebi commented:
He told the BBC: “I think partly because the economy is improving and people are spending more on luxury items.
“And social media is becoming more popular; people are sending pictures of themselves frequently and want to look good.
