Celebrities and social media influencers are constantly changing the way we perceive beauty and people are paying the price to look like their idols. From the famous ‘Jenner lips’, to the iconic ‘Kardashian tush’, these are just some of the most popular procedures chosen by famous faces to create the most ‘desirable’ look.
Recent figures from BAAPS (British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons), indicates that there has been over 25,000 surgical procedures undertaken by women in 2017 in the UK.
As a result, cosmetic advice experts at Flawless.org sought to find out what type of surgical procedures women in the UK would choose if they had the opportunity to do so.
The data was gathered by asking 1,668 women across the UK the following question:
‘What surgical procedures would you consider getting done if you could?’.
The women were provided 10 of the most popular surgical procedures from 2017 featured on BAAPS, from which they could choose multiple answers. Flawless.org then picked the top 3 most desired procedures chosen by women in each region of the UK.
Breast augmentation surgeries and face/neck lifts are some of the UK’s most desired procedures for women. Breast augmentation procedures seem to be the most favourable in the North East, North West, Wales and London. Face/neck lifts seem to be most popular with women in the East Midlands, West Midlands, South East and South West.
While 9 out of the 10 most popular procedures featured on BAAPS could be found among the top 3 choices by women per region, otoplasty (ear correction), was the only procedure which did not feature in the top 3 for any region of the UK.
