Release Summary: The Harley Medical Group announce postcodes predict
UK surgery preferences
Release Body: Following a data crunch of 400,000 postcodes of
cosmetic surgery patients, The Harley Medical Group,
the UK's largest cosmetic surgery company, has revealed the UK's
cosmetic surgical capital. Newcastle has been officially announced
the top of the ops of the UK - with more cosmetic surgery procedures
and treatments per capita than any other UK city.
London came in second place with looks conscious Essex folk from
Chelmsford coming in third place in the UK's Cosmetic Surgery
Postcode Charts, produced by The Harley Medical Group.
cosmetic surgery hot spots were Bristol, Southampton, Cardiff
and Manchester. Top procedures for each cosmetic surgery postcode
were also identified with Breast
Augmentation popular in Bristol as well as Newcastle, while
London claimed the title of Botox Capital of The UK.
Dale, Director at The Harley Medical Group said: "We
started the data crunch in order to identify the best locations
to open our next five clinics and the data team started to see
very strong cosmetic surgery postcode trends appear - with patients
happily travelling up to three hours to their nearest clinic.
Postcodes can now been seen as a clear indicator as to how likely
someone is to have cosmetic surgery, and even where there is an
increased likelihood towards certain procedures."
results also revealed the further North a patient lives, the bigger
the cup size, as patients in Newcastle, Manchester and Leeds,
as well as Cardiff and Bristol on average 47% more likely to have
a Breast Augmentation than any other region. London is officially
The Botox Capital, with Londoners 71% more likely to opt for the
wrinkle removing jab and the City clinic using 200% more vials
of the Botox toxin than any other clinic. In the south coast town
of Brighton, non surgical Laser
Hair Removal is the order of the day especially amongst the
clinic's male patients, who account for 43% of the treatments.
Birmingham and Bristol more tonnes of fat are removed by Liposuction
than the rest of the country. Brummies are also 60% more likely
to opt for the eyebag removal op - Bletharoplasty. The Irish are
losing inches thanks to tummy
tucks and breast reduction surgeries with residents in Belfast
being 35% and 72% respectively more likely to have these ops than
any other region. Those living in Nottingham are 52% more likely
to go under the knife for the perfect nose.
residents, home to many WAGs, are most likely to opt for top to
toe packages. They're 38% more likely to have a Face Lift. They
also buy two thirds more packages of non surgical treatments including
the Y-lift - a combination of Botox and Fillers - an alternative
to a Face Lift.
Clinic manager, Anne Newby added: "We've seen
patient numbers increase by 27% since last year as the demand
across both surgical and non surgical treatments increases. Whilst
Augmentation is the most popular op, patients, aren't necessarily
increasing cup size dramatically - a C cup is the norm."
