The new year offers everyone the chance to start over and become a better version of themselves. Many people take that opportunity to get the cosmetic surgery procedure that they've always wanted.
One London-based practitioner told the Edinburgh News that more men and women visit cosmetic surgery centers to receive consultations concerning facelifts, blepharoplasty, rhinoplasty and browlifts. The new year's trend is particularly significant this year, because the 'selfie' has become such a popular cultural staple and individuals are wanting to look their best on social media networks.
Last year, for instance, browlifts at the London practice were up 84 percent, blepharoplasty 41 percent, rhinoplasty by 40 percent and facelifts by 37 percent. In addition to the rise of the selfie, plastic surgery has also gained wider acceptance because of the number of celebrities who have been open about their procedures. Additionally, procedure results are only growing better.
As the public becomes more educated about the benefits of plastic surgery, they also are more careful about consulting with an expert surgeon.
"Patients are now far more discerning and do far more research in to treatments and the individual surgeon," Liz Dale, a hospital spokesperson, told the Edinburgh News. "We have seen such a marked rise in business and referrals."
