Plastic surgeons and the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) have raised concerns over the number of young people seeking plastic surgery, and that younger patients can be vulnerable and often have self-esteem issues. The concerns include a warning that procedures such as nose re-shaping and tummy tucks can't always help people overcome problems with their body image.
While there may have been a recent increase in numbers of young people undergoing cosmetic surgery, this is not a new phenomenon. We at BPS have always been aware of the impact of body image on self esteem. This is why we approach our work in the BPS Way. We do not rule out providing the benefits of aesthetic surgery to young patients but we are extremely conscious of our responsibility to care and put our patients first.
Statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons posted on the 31st of March 2014 show the growth of Breast Lifts outpacing Breast Implants 2-to-1.
Breast implants are still overwhelming choice for women, but since 2000 breast lifts are up 70%. According to the new statistics, women between the ages of 30-54 made up nearly 70 percent of the breast lift procedures performed in 2013. According to Anne Taylor, MD, an ASPS-member plastic surgeon in Columbus, Ohio “More women are coming to us who’ve had children, whose breast volume has decreased and who are experiencing considerable sagging,” she said. “For many of them, we are able to get rid of excess skin and lift the breasts back up where they’re supposed to be.” Some patients opt to combine both implants and breast lift particularly if the they have lost volume.
