The Harley Medical Group, Ireland's leading cosmetic surgery
provider, has revealed breast surgery is top of the ops for the 23rd
year running and the fastest growing sector of cosmetic surgery. The
Harley Medical Group has seen a positive increase on last year’s
enquiries. While breast reductions are becoming more popular with an
increasing number of Irish women reducing their breast size in order to
achieve a more slender figure, breast augmentation continues to be the
most popular procedure performed at THMG’s Dublin clinic.
Pauline Hughes, Dublin Clinic Manager for The Harley Medical Group commented: "There is a noticeable upward trend for post-breast feeding breast augmentation
procedures. 31 % of breast implant procedures performed at the THMG clinic over the
past 12 months have been for women that come into this bracket. In the previous 12
months, this figure was in the region of 24%.
"The age profile of women presenting for post-breast feeding breast augmentation is
late 20s to mid 30s years. This suggests that women are waiting until their final
child (typically after 2 or 3 children) before choosing to 'replace what they once
had', rather than opting for unnatural looking enhancements with larger breast
Typically, 7 years ago, 46% of Breast Augmentation patients went up three cup sizes
whereas over the last 12 months THMG’s most popular size increase was 2 cup sizes.
Breast Surgery remains the most popular of all cosmetic surgery procedures, and it
accounted for 48% of all procedures undertaken by The Harley Medical Group in the
last 12 months. Irish attitudes have changed dramatically from 7 years ago, as women
are now happy to show-off their surgery. Over 65% of Breast Augmentation patients
are between 25-35 years old with the balance mostly post breast feeding.
