Statistics are showing that Scotland is catching up with the rest of the UK when it comes to plastic surgery in Scotland. Figures from recent years have shown that there has been a sharp incline in the number of Brits going under the knife. The Scottish public is also following the lip fillers trend which has gained popularity over 2016/2017. The figures are not lying and The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (Baaps) have calculated that in 2015 there were 51,140 surgical procedures underwent. The Herald Scotland have also revealed that “The figures from industry body the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) show that one in ten procedures are now carried out on men.” So why are we investing in plastic surgery in Scotland more now than ever before?

These statistics may be surprising to some, however, it has been revealed that the cosmetic trend has risen in both genders. Just now women are still dominating the cosmetic industry market with 9/10 patients being female. Could this change in years to come. Potentially as there is a steady rise in the number of patients from both genders, with new treatments such as hair transplants appealing to UK males.

Dr. Darren McKeown, a cosmetic surgery Glasgow surgeon, has an increase in the number of enquires he has had from both genders and he has worked in cosmetics for a number of years. His focus is to help his patients understand the cosmetic process as well as the ageing process. The secret to his success in the cosmetics industry is honesty. Darren believes that you need to do more than just “sell treatments” to patients, he always gives his patients honest opinions that will help them make the right decision for them.
This may be a treatment which is commonly associated with the Hollywood Hills, however, the facelift process has changed over the years and Facelift Scotland Surgeon, Dr. Darren McKeown says that procedures now look incredibly natural: “the scars are hidden in the natural crease in front of the ear and within the ear itself, as well as behind the ear and into the hairline. Over time the scars should be virtually undetectable.” Could the untraceable signs of plastic surgery in Scotland be enough to convince you to go under the knife?
Plastic Surgery In Scotland
So why has the number of plastic surgery treatments in Scotland risen? BAAPS council member, Ash Mosahebi, has that there are a number of factors which have contributed to the rise of cosmetic surgery. The Instagram generation is addicted to spending and this could be one of the reasons why we are seeing more younger patients. Ash says that because the economy is improving, people are spending more on luxury items The selfie generation may also have something to do with the rise of cosmetic procedures.
