The Harley Medical Group has revealed that Scottish people are
five times more likely to have cosmetic surgery than the average
person. 5% of Scottish men and women say they would have, or have
already had cosmetic surgery, while one in ten would opt for
non-surgical solutions, such as Botox. The findings come as The Harley
Medical Group adds a new Glasgow clinic – the fifth new clinic opening
over the past year – to its UK and Ireland portfolio, bringing the
total estate to 28 clinics, with Edinburgh and many other in the
pipeline for 2010.
Following the announcement last year that craggy Scot, Gordon Ramsey, has fillers in
his chin to soften deep lines, it's perhaps less of a surprise that over 4% of
Scottish men would have cosmetic surgical or non-surgical treatments. Scottish
women are also looks conscious with 7% of them admitting they would have cosmetic
procedures, and 17% would look to battle aging with non-surgical solutions.
Scottish men cite native sex symbol Gerard Butler as the person whose looks and
physique they most covet. Meanwhile, women admire the way Helen Mirren has held
back the years, despite being in her 60s. The actress, who says she would certainly
consider having cosmetic surgery, was named by
15% of Scottish women, as the person they most aspire to look like.
The Harley Medical Groups Glasgow Clinic Manager Donna Ward stated, "We've had
really positive feedback from prospective patients anticipating the clinic opening.
Scottish patients, who have been travelling to Newcastle, Liverpool and Manchester
clinics now have a brand new facility on their doorstep.
"We're already booked out to the middle of next month. Treatments for rosacea,
which is redness of the skin, and laser treatments for sun damage have been proving
very popular. The most enquired about surgical procedures to date has been breast
reduction by men and for women it is breast augmentation and uplift, with
Liposuction a close 2nd for both males and females
The Harley Medical Group's Glasgow clinic is situated in Somerset Place in the city
centre and clinic its staff there are hoping they'll overtake London's City clinic
as the capital of non-surgical injectibles. Botox is one of the most in demand
procedure in Scotland, with over 150 enquiries already to date at the new clinic.
The number of female and male patients investing in non-surgical procedures is
expected to be galvanised by visitors from the 'square kilometre financial district
in Glasgow's city centre.
Mel Braham, Chairman, The Harley Medical Group commented, "With its central
position in the city, the Glasgow clinic is going to be a focus for new treatments
and product launches, with some major new and exciting surgical and non-surgical
launches planned later this year. A vibrant and thriving city, and the third most
populous in the UK, Glasgow is a prime location for our new clinic opening."
