Here at The Avoca Clinic we always look around the world for new trends in plastic surgery and were keen to find out what the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery review showed for plastic surgery trends in Britain.
Interestingly, it was very similar to the figures we found here in The Avoca Clinic with Breast Augmentation continuing to be our most popular procedure in 2012. We are delighted to announce we will be keeping our €3,500 Breast Augmentations for a limited time in celebration of another great year for The Avoca Clinic team.
According to Rajiv Grover, consultant plastic surgeon and President of the BAAPS;
“Every week there are reports of new ‘lunchtime’ or ‘Hollywood craze’ treatments that are here today, gone tomorrow. The growth rates for surgical facelifting and other anti-ageing procedures showed a double digit rise, despite a double dip recession. Perhaps because of turbulent financial times, patients are looking for tried-and-tested procedures that deliver a reliable, long-lasting result and which have a proven safety record. Whilst there is an undeniable rise in demand for non-surgical treatments of the face; for example Botox and fillers; once there is actual loose skin in the neck or jowling, only surgery is likely to make a significant improvement and the public seem to be increasingly aware of this.
The Nobel prize for medicine in 2012 being awarded to research in the field of stem cell physiology suggests this may be an area of continued growth in the future.”
The figures in full:
Whilst Breast Augmentation is always one of the most popular procedures, The Neck and facelift has increased dramatically in 2012. We at The Avoca Clinic have certainly seen an increase this year as we carry out this procedure under Local anaesthetic with wonderful results.
