It has been reported that anti-ageing surgeries are taking the spotlight and among them are facelifts. It seems that the crown for top plastic surgery is slowly being stripped away from breast augmentation.
In a study conducted by the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS), it has been noted that even with boob jobs still ranking as the no. 1 plastic surgery procedure, facelifts and eyelid surgeries are showing remarkable popularity. Last year’s statistics showed that breast augmentation went down by 1.6% in 2012 while brow lifts and face lifts went up by 14% and 17% respectively.
Though the report was conducted last year, there have been speculations that breast augmentation’s popularity may suffer this year due to the latest scandal in the world of plastic surgery.
As reference, cheap homemade industrial silicones not suitable for humans were used as breast implant by the French center Poly Implant Prothese (PIP). As of now, founder Jean-Cleaude Mas and his four senior staff members are facing trial for aggravated fraud.
PIP has been reported to be the third largest supplier of breast implants in the world, and it has been assumed that more than 300,000 women from 65 countries may have used the implants for fitting. Although medical experts have stated that the implants didn’t pose any significant risk, the victims were exclaiming that they have been traumatized by PIP’s scam.
In the Philippines, breast augmentation still remains to be the most popular surgery chosen by patients even with various scandals on the rise. It’s just a matter of trust and the knowledge to find the best board-certified plastic surgeon in the Philippines.
With an increasing number of middle-aged patients, facelift is becoming a favorite in the country. This is done to eliminate signs of facial and neck ageing and preventing the skin to become lax.
Do you think breast augmentation will soon step down from its pedestal and be replaced by facelift in the Philippines?
