Plastic Surgeons Bemoan Boob Jobs' Droop in Popularity

By Gary Cutlack on at

Stats from the UK cosmetic surgery scene seem to suggest we're becoming less keen on boob and nose jobs, with operations to correct the too-small and too-big bits of our bodies falling in popularity.

The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, which operates under the endlessly amusing acronym of Baaps, has reported a nine per cent drop in cosmetic surgery operations in 2014, with the number of procedures carried out falling from 50,122 in 2013 to 45,406 in 2014.

That's a nine per cent reduction overall, with Baaps reporting that nose and boob jobs collapsed in popularity the most -- with cases of both dropping by nearly a quarter. Here's the data in a nice chart, courtesy of MyBreast:


There's good news for Liposuctionists, though, with incidences of vanity man-boob vacuuming and thigh gap-creating increasing by seven per cent year on year. [BBC]
