Surgicare, one of the leading cosmetic surgery providers in the UK, has revealed a growing interest by Brits in its Marcolane procedures.
March 2009 saw the highest number of enquiries and consultations about Marcolane since Surgicare began offering the service in April the previous year.
Macrolane is a non-surgical procedure that can help with breast reshaping or breast enlargement. The procedure consists of an injection and generally takes less than two hours to complete, with no need for an overnight stay. The results of Macrolane are instantaneous and can last for up to 18 months.
number of enquiries in March rose by 111% on the previous month's figure and
78% on the previous record - held jointly by January this year and September
2008. Consultations were also at an all time high - 60% up on February's figures
- and in keeping with the year's average of a consultation for slightly more
than every six enquiries.
Online searches for the procedure have also seen a huge boost since they were introduced in early 2007, peaking around March this year.
Mark Bury, chief executive officer of SurgiCare, said: "This recent rise in interest of cosmetic treatments, particularly the non-surgical procedures such as Marcolane, shows that despite the harsh economic times the public are still keen to look their best.
"Using Marcolane gives a quick boost to a woman's appearance and is ideal to help boost someone's confidence. It can be particularly useful for someone after childbirth, or after significant weight loss, who is looking to restore lost volume from their breasts or for someone who just wants to enhance their natural shape."
Macrolane uses a smooth, non-animal based hyaluronic gel to help enhance breasts and leaves no visible scarring. Men can also benefit from Macrolane's body shaping treatments by enhancing and refining body shape giving natural looking contours to the chest, as well as other areas including the buttocks and calves.
