Over 50 and Fabulous!

At 56 years old Carole Middleton, whose daughter was launched into the media spotlight on 29th April this year, has been quietly making her own mark as an emblem of style, sophistication and beauty for UK women over 50.

Recently pictured arriving at a charity event in London, it was Carole’s legs that were the centre of attention, looking sleek, shapely and picture perfect, Carole Middleton showed women everywhere that over 50 is the new fabulous.

Although she is leading the pack, as the poster woman for over 50’s, Carole Middleton is not the only one showing UK women how it’s done, with Carol Vorderman, 50, winning the 2011 rear of the year award and Helen Mirren, 66, crowned body of the year 2011.

Lisa Littlehales, Lead Nurse Counsellor at The Harley Medical Group, says: “Carole Middleton is emerging as an icon for British women of a similar age – she is definitely leading the trend for women over 50 feeling more attractive and confident than ever before.

“Just like Carole Middleton, lots of women over 50 are inspired to get their legs out and show off their confidence, 15% of non-surgical treatments for legs, across the Group’s 31 clinics are booked by over 50’s. These treatments include Thread Vein RemovalLaser Hair Removal and Aesthera PPX- a leading skin rejuvenation treatment which helps get rid of lines and wrinkles, uneven pigmentation and sun damage.

“Surgical treatments such as a Facelift, Eye-Bag Removal, Tummy Tucks and Breast Uplifts, are also popular among women over 50, who want to rejuvenate their bodies. Many of these women opt for surgical options to help them look as confident as they feel.”

The Harley Medical Group, Has Revealed That The Demand For Boob Jobs Is Booming But Huge Boobs Are Out

The Harley Medical Group has revealed that while breast surgery is proving to be hugely popular, many women are opting for a more natural look than the all-up-front look sported by Page 3 and glamour models

Nurse counsellors across the Harley Medical Group‘s 23 UK clinics questioned women who’d recently undergone breast surgery during, page three model, Nicola McClean’s tenure on celebrity reality TV show, “I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here”. Women were asked what they think of Ms. McClean’s self proclaimed “lovely jugs” with the majority of those questioned giving the glamour model’s chest a firm thumbs down.

Of 121 women questioned, 99 (81%) said that they though her breasts were just too overblown and artificial looking. Instead, the women said they would opt for a more natural look, reflecting the ‘less is more’ attitude now taken by other celebrities including Jordan and Ulrika Jonsson.

This attitude is backed up by figures from The Harley Medical Group, which show 75% of women who have had a breast enlargement in the last six months opted to go up just one or two cup sizes. The figures from the Harley Medical Group also reveal that boob jobs remain the most popular of all cosmetic surgeryprocedures, making up 30% of all procedures across its 23 clinics.

Director of the Harley Medical Group, Liz Dale said: “Breast enlargement has always been top of the ops we perform. It’s a very personal choice and if a ballooning bust is what Nicola wants then good luck to her. However, over the last five years we’ve really noticed that huge breasts are out and instead women come to us looking for a natural result, not a ‘look at me’ statement neckline, which can sometimes cause too much attention.

“In fact, the most popular cup size requested is a C cup and 80% of our patients opt for just a one or two cup size increase. Contrary to popular belief, most cosmetic surgery patients want to fit in – not stand out.”

The new breed of breast enlargement patients, keen to keep things in proportion, are plumping for the “lower profile implant” in preference to two other available breast implant shapes – the “round high profile”, which produces a more rounded appearance to the upper breast and the “contoured” breast implants, which are designed to reflect the slope of the breast.

Sarah McLaughlin, a Harley Medical Group patient from Leeds, had a breast augmentation, increasing her bust size from 32A to a 32C. She said: “I couldn’t stand my flat chest and I’d planned to get a boob job for a while but I was wary of it looking too obvious – particularly as there are lots of men in my line of work. A C cup is perfect for me, giving me a sexy but subtle shape. Now I can dress my boobs up or down, depending on the occasion.”

With three children, a full-time job and Christmas coming up, I simply don’t get the leisure time to sit in the bath and groom myself.

Liz Dale, Director of the Harley Medical Group, commented: “People are looking for ways to keep themselves one step ahead of their colleagues. Most patients think aboutcosmetic surgery for many years and office competition simply acts as a catalyst.”

She added: “It’s not just older patients who cite this as a reason, many of our patients at the City clinic, especially men, are using cosmetic treatments such as Botox to take years off their looks giving them increased confidence and, they feel, an edge to their looks.

The Harley Medical Group Reports Rise In Tummy Tuck Ops For Weight Loss Patients

The Harley Medical Group, the UK’s largest cosmetic surgery provider, has seen a dramatic five year rise in patients undergoing body corrective surgery to cope with the after effects of extreme post obesity weight loss. Dubbed “Post Obesity Surgery” (POS), various surgical procedures such as tummy tucks (abdominoplasty), male breast reduction (gynaecomastia) and breast uplift (mastopexy) are booming as patients book in for body corrective surgery to treat their post obesity bodies.

Data taken over the past five years from The Harley Medical Group, which has conducted more than 10,000 POS procedures over this period, shows that tummy tucksare up 31%, male breast reductions are up 24% and female breast uplifts are up 18%.

Mr Frati, a surgeon at The Harley Medical Group, cites the UK’s obesity epidemic as the cause for this boom. With 21% of men and 22% of women in the UK being classed as clinically obese, which is predicted to rise to a quarter of all adults in 2010*, The Harley Medical Group estimates the abdominoplasty procedure alone will overtake breast augmentation as the clinic’s most popular treatment over the next ten years.

A patient of The Harley Medical Group patient, John Wright from Lincolnshire, who had a tummy tuck operation plus gynaecomastia (male breast reduction) after he lost 22 stone commented: “After the immense effort and hard work of loosing so much weight it was utterly soul destroying to see vast folds of skin hanging from my body. My local GP wouldn’t refer me to have cosmetic surgery on the NHS and so I was forced to go private. I used almost £10,000 of my savings, but I think it was worth every penny.”

Lisa Littlehales, head nurse at The Harley Medical Group, explained: “It’s heartbreaking to see patients who have achieved so much to lose dramatic amounts of weight so embarrassed by their post weight loss bodies. Surgery is able to transform both their bodies which have been so vastly overstretched and in the process restore their confidence.”

She added: “Many patients describe how they wish they had addressed the problem before they became obese, but talk of the creeping nature of obesity – slowly moving from being simply over weight to clinically obese over a ten year period. Many feel let down by healthcare professionals and feel strongly that the government’s focus on educating the public on healthy eating and exercise routines is long overdue and also needs far greater focus and outreach work.”

Bookings For Surgery Amongst 45-65 Year Olds Booms, Second Marriages As Their Main Motivation

According to The Harley Medical Group, the UK’s biggest cosmetic surgery provider, bookings for surgery amongst 45-65 year olds doubled in 2008. When explaining why they’d opted for ‘silver surgery’, patients from The Harley Medical Group’s 23 UK clinics cited second marriages as their main motivation.

Liz Dale, Director of The Harley Medical Group, commented: “Many patients have thought about surgery for a long time and when they come out of a long-term relationship it can be part of their start afresh strategy. Cosmetic surgery helps give our patients renewed confidence as they embark on new relationships and second marriages. We also see many patients using Botox to help keep their appearance fresh when they have a younger partner.”

With second marriages now accounting for one in three marriages in the UK, a desire to look their best walking up the aisle the second-time round is encouraging patients to book in for procedures to dilute the ravages of time. Popular pre-nuptial procedures with middle-aged women include Blepharoplasty, Brow Lift, Breast Uplift, Botox and Face Lift. Top ops for men include Rhinoplasty and Otoplasty, which are often chosen to alter a feature they’ve long been unhappy with.

Liz Dale continued: “It’s not only the demand for cosmetic surgery that’s changing, it’s also the perceptions associated with it. Twenty years ago the majority of our patients wouldn’t tell anyone about their surgery; it would be a complete secret. Now the majority are happy to share the details of surgery with their families and friends.”
