    Plastic Surgery in the UK

    The main aim of plastic surgery is to restore the function of tissues and skin to as close to normal as possible. Improving the appearance of body parts is an important. Approximately 50,000 cosmetic surgery procedures are performed per year in the UK according to the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons.

    Visiting the doctor’s is now become a form of leisure as well as a place to turn to you when you’re not well. Although the development of plastic surgery has only been accepted and believed to have taken place over the last 20 years, the concept is a very old one. The nose received the most attention from early plastic surgeons. However, plastic surgery is not only used for cosmetic and personal reasons but also for people who may encounter serious accidents that cause them to have a destruction to their physical appearance. Other examples of plastic surgery in the UK include breast augmentation, face and neck lifts, liposuction, brow lifts and many more.

    In the UK, the NHS funds those aesthetic surgeries which are undergone due to a person being involved in a fatal accident and this is rather known as ‘reconstruction’ rather than ‘Plastic Surgery’. Recreational plastic surgery is generally not funded under the NHS. People argue that the surge in plastic surgery for recreational purposes in the UK is causing a bad example to younger generations who are starting to rely on surgery to change their physical appearance. They believe it’s starting to create a community where the size of breasts and the shape of our noses are more important than the risks of actual surgery. This is not often spoken about, however there are many risks that are involved with plastic surgery, for example; the actual surgery itself may go wrong and the physical appearance may appear to be worse than the original state, people will be bed bound for a while after surgery and will unable to attend work/school or be active for a period of time and also, altering normal body processes generally can be quite harmful and lead to a domino effect causing difficulties elsewhere.

    Plastic surgery in the UK is more popular in women than in men and although it is unknown why this is the case, the percentage of men undergoing surgery has largely increased in recent years. This shows that image in women and men is becoming equal. The increase in plastic surgery is due to may factors;
    • Economic factors: The average person is now earning more per year and also, more medical facilities are available in hospitals for the surgery to be able to take place.
    • Advanced Technology: There is now much more knowledge and access to medical facilities due to a higher level of technological advances.
    • Media: Celebrities, models and social media are a major reason for people now seeking to plastic surgery. Appearance is now become an extremely important aspect in our everyday lives to our profile picture on Facebook to looking like our favorite celebrity.

    To conclude, there is a massive increase in plastic surgery in the UK over the years and more people are looking to alter their physical appearance. Even though it can be argued that physical appearance isn’t the most important thing about a person and there are risks during the surgical procedure, I personally am for plastic surgery, as I believe if you look good, you generally feel good and therefore you are happier and you should decide what you do with your own body.
