The Harley Medical Group skincare wins in IMAGE Beauty Awards 2012

Leading cosmetic surgery group The Harley Medical Group has won at the IMAGE Beauty Awards, which is often cited as Ireland’s most prestigious beauty awards. The group’s performance eye lift was the winning product, being heralded as the ‘best for eye lifting’ in the 2012 awards.

The Harley Medical Group was founded in 1983 and is a leader in the UK world of cosmetic surgery and non-surgical procedures, offering treatments for both men and women at its many clinics. With so many years of experience under its belt the group is able to provide patients with effective results for a range of cosmetic issues.

Alongside its many treatments available, The Harley Medical Group also has a range of skincare products that patients can use in conjunction with other treatments or as a standalone regime. The now award-winning performance eye lift can come as part of The Harley Medical Group’s Anti-Ageing Package, which includes everything needed to give skin a youthful glow.

The IMAGE Beauty Awards has been running for nine years now and over 500 products in four categories were tested for this year’s awards, meaning The Harley Medical Group’s performance eye lift stood up to some stiff competition. Sixteen independent judges narrowed down the categories to come up with this year’s winning products, and those included on the expert panel included Dr Rosemary Coleman, Nicky Hambleton-Jones from the Channel 4 show ’10 Years Younger’, Laura Bermingham from‘Ireland AM’ and Elaine Butler-Doolin, famous for her appearance on TV3’s ‘Celebrity Salon’.

Lisa Littlehales of The Harley Medical Group said: “We’re so thrilled to have won the IMAGE Beauty Awards for the best eye lifting category. Our performance eye lift is one of our most popular skincare products and it makes us proud to know that it’s been referred to as a ‘Cinderella eye cream’ by the judges on the panel.

“All of our anti-ageing creams and cleansers contain only the best ingredients in order to stimulate collagen growth to give you firmer, younger looking skin without the need for invasive treatments, which is undoubtedly why it won out in the end.”

Every product in the IMAGE Beauty Awards was tested against a number of criteria, such as value for money, performance, packaging, texture, scent and longevity. The full list of award-winners can be seen in the May issue of IMAGE Magazine, while further information about The Harley Medical Group’s excellent cosmetic surgeries and skincare products can be found online at www.harleymedical.co.uk.

Recession Frown Lines Drive Injectables Bookings

One of the UK’s leading cosmetic surgery providers has revealed a rise in bookings of injectable treatments, as patients tackle recession frown and worry lines. The Harley Medical Group, with 31 clinics nationwide, has reported a 9% increase in bookings for Botox® and Dermal Fillers amongst the 35+ age group for women, however the gap is lessening between genders, with more males making bookings. The majority of bookings being made are for treatments on the forehead and around the eyes.

Lisa Littlehales, Leading Nurse Counsellor at The Harley Medical Group, says: “Repetitive facial expressions can lead to deep wrinkles and lines developing on the skin, resulting in a ‘permanent’ expression on the face. Constant frowning, creasing of the brow when thinking, and rubbing the forehead all result in lines and wrinkles appearing. Patients often tell us people have commented that they look angry or upset because of their frown and worry lines, and this has inspired them to book in.

“Frown lines appear vertically between the brows, and are usually between 1.5 – 2 inches long. Depending on how deep the line is, we would usually treat this area with two or three injections of Dermal Filler, plumping out the skin giving an overall smoother look. Worry lines appear horizontally across the forehead and often patients can have multiple lines. Botox® and Fillers injected along the length of the lines will help to rejuvenate the skin, and create a more youthful appearance.”

Sally Taber, who manages the Standards and Training principles for TreatmentsYouCanTrust.co.uk, which is the only scheme to register appropriately qualified and regulated providers of cosmetic injectables, also comments on the ‘recession treatment trend’, saying: “We’ve heard from many providers on the register that Dermal Fillers have been very popular this year, with many consumers looking to tackle their worry lines. It still remains of paramount importance that consumers choose a provider wisely – these popular treatments are safe and deliver excellent results if carried out by providers with a clinical background and in a clinical environment.”

Littlehales continues: “It’s not only injectables that patients are turning to, to help achieve a smooth and youthful appearance. Skin peels are very effective treatments in helping to rejuvenate the skin and help reverse the signs of ageing. The Agera Skin Peel and the Obagi Blue Peel both help to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which helps the skin to bounce back into shape and prevents lines and wrinkles from forming.”

Natasha Boast, a patient who has had fillers at The Harley Medical Group, says: “Looking in the mirror and seeing yourself age radically in a year is not good for morale, especially when your work situation is precarious and you are juggling paying family bills.

“I started to look permanently cross as well, as my frown line between my eyes was so strong and my children started asking why Mummy was angry. I decided to have Fillers and am so pleased I did. I feel happier and more positive and don’t feel miserable when I catch myself in the mirror.”

The Harley Medical Group Busts Cosmetic Surgery Myths

The UK’s leading cosmetic surgery group, The Harley Medical Group, have today revealed research findings which bust some of the industry’s biggest myths and uncover what motivates people across the UK to have cosmetic surgery.

In the first ever survey of its kind, conducted across the Group’s 31 clinics nationwide on over 20,000 patients, the results challenge many of the longstanding myths that surround the cosmetic surgery field revealing over 85% of UK patients opt for surgery due to a confidence issue and that 95% will think about having a procedure for more than two years before they go ahead.

Lisa Littlehales, Lead Nurse Counsellor at The Harley Medical Group, says: “Patients who are looking into surgical options have lots of questions about their procedure and it is important that they are properly informed.

“We decided to do the survey as people often people have assumptions about cosmetic surgery, which in reality are completely untrue. One of the biggest myths is that cosmetic surgery is purely about vanity, when in actual fact it is most often a confidence issue which the patient has not been able to resolve through other means.”

Top Myths Revealed by The Harley Medical Group

All facts are according to The Harley Medical Group

MYTH
Having cosmetic surgery is addictive and most people go on to have multiple procedures after their first.

FACT
95% of patients will only have one procedure that they’ve been thinking about for several years. It’s a confidence thing with many people.

MYTH
Women who have breast enlargement surgery look fake and just want to have big breasts like Jordan.

FACT
Most women only go up by one or two cup sizes and the average size is a C cup. Women are now wanting a more natural look opting for a tear-drop shaped implant rather than the traditional round high contour.

MYTH
Cosmetic surgery is now so commonplace; most people view it as just another beauty treatment.

FACT
Research shows that on average patients think about their surgery for two to three years before going ahead with it.

MYTH
More men are now having cosmetic surgery than women!

FACT
There’s been a huge growth in men having surgery, but they still only make up 17% of patients at The Harley Medical Group.

MYTH
People have cosmetic surgery to stand out.

FACT
Most cosmetic surgery patients don’t have a procedure to stand out; they have treatment to help them fit in.

MYTH
Most people that book in for surgery are young girls who are over critical about their appearance.

FACT
45% of all female patients who enquire and have surgery at The Harley Medical Group are mothers looking for treatments to help combat the effects of pregnancy and regain their confidence. The Harley Medical Group have also seen a 17% increase in patients over 65, across their 31 clinics, in the UK and Ireland, between 2005 and 2010.

MYTH
Plastic surgeons can make you look like your favourite celebrity.

FACT
Each patient is individual and a surgeon will work with a patient’s existing factors in order to produce a desired result – it is not possible to make one person look exactly like another.

MYTH
If you are overweight you can just have liposuction to make you slim

FACT
Liposuction is not a weight loss technique and produces best results on patients that have lost weight and are looking to remove small pockets of stubborn fat. Also, it’s not just women that opt for Liposuction, 25% of Liposuction patients are male.

MYTH
If you’re standing in the supermarket queue, chances are someone in that queue has had cosmetic surgery of some sort.

FACT
Only about 1% of the population have had surgery.

MYTH
Most people go abroad for surgery because it’s cheaper.

FACT
Many people feel uncomfortable about travelling so far away from home when having a major operation and feel it’s more risky.

MYTH
You’ll only meet sales people when you go to a big cosmetic surgery provider.

FACT
Reputable providers only use medically trained staff. Patients should always meet with a medically trained professional nurse counsellor to discuss their procedure and will always meet their surgeon before the operation.

MYTH
Cosmetic Surgery Industry will be one of the first things to be hit by a credit crunch as it’s a vanity led industry and not essential.

FACT
Most patients think about and plan their surgery for many years. They are unlikely to want to put it off and instead consider it an investment. The Harley Medical Group is currently reporting a 29% YOY increase in demand for surgery, defying the credit crunch.

Nutrition Experts Come Together For Roundtable At The Royal Society Of Medicine

Nutrition experts come together for roundtable at the Royal Society of Medicine.

AmeriSciences AS10, the first ever super-league multivitamin and nutritional formula developed from joint research with NASA and the Johnson Space Centre, will be available off the shelf in the UK from today. Key figures from the field of nutrition attended a roundtable at the Royal Society of Medicine, including the Institute for Optimum Nutrition and The Nutrition Society, to discuss how the AmeriSciences AS10 range of products will pave the way for the next generation of breakthrough technology in nutritional supplementation.

Six years of ground breaking research with NASA and the Johnson Space Centre has also indicated the potential of AmeriSciences AS10 formula to provide daily protection from low level radiation exposure. The findings, published in the Radiation Research Journal, reveal the potential of this multi-nutrient cocktail to combat the effects of stressors such as radiation, and prolong life in subjects exposed to those stressors.

Space Act Agreement 2005
In 2005, AmeriSciences and NASA and the Johnson Space Centre entered into a Space Act Agreement to develop nutritional supplements for astronauts to meet the needs of long-duration spaceflight as well as conditioning here on Earth. In 2009, the resulting AmeriSciences and NASA formulas were used and tested aboard the Space Shuttle and International Space Station with positive and exciting results.

Says Carlos Montesinos, AmeriSciences Director of Scientific and Regulatory Affairs,“The AmeriSciences AS10 product line poses a significant challenge to the current supplement market. Indeed, the strength of the antioxidant and multivitamin formulas have been so significant in testing that it will change the way nutritional supplementation is viewed in both the scientific community and general population.”

What is it?
AmeriSciences AS10 is a powerful antioxidant and anti-ageing liquid beverage, comprising a unique formulation of only 100% fruit and vegetable-derived ingredients, including the new ‘superfruits’ acai, cupuaçu and acerola sustainably sourced from the Brazilian rainforest. AmeriSciences AS10 is also part of a wider range of nutritional supplements including AS10 Life multivitamin; derived from the same joint research with NASA and the JSC for achieving optimum nutrition.

AmeriSciences AS10 product line provides a reassuring ‘safety net’ of vitamins and minerals essential for maintaining optimum health and one of the Government recommended ‘five-a-day’ portions of fruit and vegetables. The range includes an oral solution and tablet food supplements and the price reflects six years of research, with the solution retailing at £120 a month and the multivitamin tablets at £27.

Who is AmeriSciences AS10 for and how is it taken?
AmeriSciences AS10 formula, which comes in a wine-bottle shaped container, is designed for anyone feeling run-down, with hectic lifestyles or susceptible to nutritional deficiencies. Recent case report studies conducted at independent sites have demonstrated positive effects on skin health, including significant reduction in wrinkles, age spots and UVA damage. The solution is taken twice daily in 60ml doses, equivalent to four tablespoons. AS10 life is a combination of vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients in a tablet form.

An industry leader in its research and self-imposed quality standards, AmeriSciences requires that its supplements maintain a minimum of 95% dissolution rate compared to a 50% estimated market average and 75% USP requirement. Carlos Montesinos adds,“AmeriSciences’ AS10 line is just another way in which AmeriSciences is pushing the technology of the industry forward for the benefit of the consumer.”

Where is it available?
AmeriSciences products are only sold through independent AmeriSciences distributors. The Harley Medical Group is one of the major UK stockist for AmeriSciences AS10 and the further range of nutritional supplementation products developed from joint research with NASA and the Johnson Space Centre. AmeriSciences AS10 is available through the Harley Medical Group online at www.harleymedical.co.uk and at any of their 31 clinics nationwide.

Industry response
Dr Duncan Gould, GP, Men’s Health Expert and consultant pharmaceutical physician, said: “As a doctor, I am excited by the joint research and results on AmeriSciences AS10 with NASA and the Johnson Space Centre. The outcomes to date are insightful and demonstrate a prevention of the negative effects of radiation in mice by improving mortality rates: I look forward to seeing any similar data that may emerge from studies in man. The translation of such data into the human setting may have the potential to impact upon the way oncology patients are treated in the future and
may have a positive impact upon individuals who have been affected by radiation contamination, and are at high risk in the future.”

Says Bernice Berry, Associate Director of Training and Personnel Development, The Harley Medical Group, major distributor of AmeriSciences AS10 in the UK, “Before patients have cosmetic surgery they need to be in peak physical condition – as with any surgical procedure – and the AmeriSciences AS10 products will be invaluable in supporting our patients’ pre-operative preparation and post-operative recovery. For our non-surgical patients optimum nutrition is paramount as this is reflected in their outward appearance; glowing skin, strong hair and nails and an energy boost are just some of the benefits seen by our patients following use of these products. Many are particularly excited about the anti-ageing properties of range, which compliments our non-surgical treatment options.

The Harley Medical Group Reveals The British Profession Most Likely To Have Cosmetic Treatments

British celebrities with various professions, including chef Gordon Ramsay, TV presenter Kay Burley and fashion designer Victoria Beckham, all openly admit to having cosmetic treatments.

Inspired to reveal the professionals most likely to have treatments, The Harley Medical Group has found that it is actually those in the military who are most likely to have cosmetic treatments.

The Group conducted a survey across its 31 clinics in the UK and Ireland which revealed the military made up over 8% of bookings in the last six months, with patients choosing non-surgical treatments such as Botoxdermal fillers and surgeries such as otoplasty and gynaecomastia.

Top Five Professions Most Likely to Have Cosmetic Surgery
1. Military
2. Teachers
3. Policeman
4. City Workers
5. Hairdressers & Beauticians

Says Lisa Littlehales, Lead Nurse Counsellor at The Harley Medical Group: “Often patients who are in very active professions such as the military, opt for treatments as they feel they begin to look older than they feel, as their faces age more obviously than their bodies. Patients in the military profession also comment that playful banter in the mess encourages them to look into surgical options.

“Active celebrities such as Maria Sharapova, Mike Tindall, Jermain Jenas and Shane Warne, have all had cosmetic treatments. This type of patient is a great candidate for surgery, as they take regular exercise, generally eat healthily, don’t drink to excess or smoke and are in excellent health.”

The Harley Medical Group Patient and Army Corporal Danielle Hagget, 23, comments on her reasons behind having otoplasty: “I always hated my ears but after joining the army I began to notice them more, as I always have to wear my hair up, drawing even more attention to my ears. Being in a male oriented environment, there is often playful banter within my unit, although this is always a bit of fun, it also gave me the push I needed to go ahead with surgery and I decided to take the opportunity to save for my procedure while I was in Afghanistan. My surgery has given me a massive confidence boost, which has really helped my career – it’s the best thing I’ve ever done for myself.”

Mums Look To Non-Surgical Treatments To Achieve School Gate Confidence

With celebrity school mums like Elle McPherson and Claudia Schiffer providing inspiration from their perfectly groomed school gate snaps, The Harley Medical Group has seen a rise in mums booking in for rejuvenating treatments to achieve that same enviable yummy mummy look, in time for the new school term.

The Group reports a huge 26% rise in the past two months, from female patients booking in for treatments such as Botox, dermal fillers, skin peels and medical microdermabrasions, citing competition at the school gates as their reason.

Says Lisa Littlehales, Specialist Nurse Counsellor at The Harley Medical Group: “Lots of mums come in for non-surgical treatments before their children start school again.

“Most of these women have minimal spare time and don’t have time to put on makeup every day, so non-surgical treatments which are quick and with minimal pain mean that with busy term times, they are a great option. Most last up to a minimum of three months, which means that mums will stay looking great and feeling confident at the school gates all term.”

Jenny Powell, 43, UK television presenter, mother and patient at The Harley Medical Group, comments on her reasons for looking to non-surgical options: “I have a busy lifestyle and often find that the challenges and strain of juggling work and family take its toll on my appearance, as I don’t always have the time to pay too much attention to the way I look.

“Once the school term starts again I feel especially conscious about my appearance in front of the other mums at the school gate – especially as so many celebs in the media are seen looking amazing when they drop off their kids. In order to make sure I look and feel my best before the new term I tend to have a medical microdermabrasion treatment. The treatment always rejuvenates my skin and makes it look amazing even if I don’t have time for my makeup, which is perfect for those very busy days.”

Top five school gate treatments
1. Botox
2. Dermal fillers
3. Skin peels
4. Microdermabrasion
5. Non-surgical facelift

The Harley Medical Group reports rise in procedure dubbed ‘The Cameron’

Thinning lips are common problem amongst 40-something successful men, such as PM David Cameron, as aging and stress take their toll by reducing collagen production, which is responsible for keeping lips full and youthful. But British men are not happy with the “thin upper lip” look, and according to the UK’s leading cosmetic injectable company, The Harley Medical Group, are opting for dermal filler procedures to boost top and bottom lips. The Group reports male lip enhancing treatments are up 17% for the first quarter year on year – a procedure which has been dubbed by practioners at the Group’s Harley Street clinic The Cameron.

Says Lisa Littlehales, Specialist Nurse Councellor at The Harley Medical Group:“Whilst there is no doubt that the PM’s lips have thinned, his thinning lips are less noticeable in many ways, as he had incredibly slim line lips with minimal lip arches to begin with, but thinning lips are a common problem for men of his age group. A full lip line is central to presenting a youthful appearance and once ageing sets in, thinning lips can be very aging. We have seen more and more men opt for treatment, booking in for 30 minute sessions to have their upper and bottom lips boosted with non permanent fillers. ”

Dubbed ‘The Cameron’, the lip filler treatment costs from £350 at The Harley Medical Group and requires topping up every 3- 6months to help to restore a youthful plumpness to the lips. The filler is administered in a series of small injections on each side of the lips over a half hour treatment time, giving natural, immediate results. There is no downtime to the treatment, making this the perfect treatment for 40-something busy men.

Liz Dale, Director at The Harley Medical Group adds: “Cosmetic treatments for men, such as lip fillers to help combat the effects of ageing, is a trend which has become increasingly popular across our 31 clinics, with men feeling more comfortable to book in for treatments and the idea of cosmetic injectable treatments for men becoming more acceptable than it was five years ago”.

Many are thinking ahead to the warmer summer months and want to avoid embarrassing sweat patches as they face rising temperatures on commuter-packed public transport.

Harley Medical Group Reports Big Enquiry Increase In The City

The Harley Medical Group’s City clinic, in the heart of the Square Mile, has historically been one of the 26 clinic strong Group’s leading UK clinics but has seen static figures over the last six months. However, September figures for the Group’s City Clinic, released today, show a 24% month on month enquiry increase, which could result in optimism amongst City workers.

Male patients are driving the September growth at The Harley Medical Group’s City Clinic, which is based at Great Street Thomas Apostle, two minutes walking distance from Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank and JP Morgan. Abdominoplasties – tummy tucks – amongst male patients are up 68% year-on-year and male breast reduction – reduction of Moobs, or man boobs – is up 14% year on year for the month of September.

Female execs are opting for Non Surgical Treatments with September bookings up 27% month on month in The Harley Medical Group’s City Clinic.

Both male and female patients opted for Botox last month, which was up 18% last month, year-on-year, as City workers look to stay ahead of the competition in an increasingly competitive climate.

Liz Dale, Director of The Harley Medical Group, said: “There certainly seems to be a renewed sense of optimism amongst City workers, with surgical bookings for the next quarter up by over 20% on last year for our City Clinic.”

The Harley Medical Group, which has 26 UK clinics, last reported a big hike in bookings for its City Clinic three years ago, with the Winter 2005 City Surgery boom then attributed to the City bonus season.

A Harley Medical Group patient who works as a sales analyst at one of the UK’s top five investment banks, said: “Although my job makes it hard to stay trim I made a lifestyle decision to lose weight earlier this year, which left me with a flap of loose skin on my stomach and stubborn fat on my chest. I felt terribly self-conscious and uncomfortable in the gym, which was my main motivation for surgery. I’ve booked in for a tummy tuck and male breast reduction in November. With the total surgery bill coming to around £10,000, I’ll be using my bonus money to fund the surgery.”

Another patient who works for a City insurance firm, said: “I have had botox for five years, usually three times a year. I haven’t had the treatment for over a year as I was really tightening my purse strings, but I feel more confident that my job is safe and so I booked in for botox last week. It was long overdue, I look and feel great.”

The Harley Medical Group Has Revealed That The Number Of Nipple Correction Surgical Procedures Carried Out Has Risen 30% Year-On-Year

The Harley Medical Group has revealed that the number of nipple correction surgical procedures carried out has risen 30% year-on-year.

Mr Riccardo Frati, surgeon at The Harley Medical Group, appeared on GMTV to discuss nipple correction surgery with Lorraine Kelly. He said: “There are nipple surgery options out there and a minority of women seek to change the size or shape of their nipples through reconstructive surgery purely for cosmetic reasons. Another option, nipple elevation, involves the nipple being raised above its existing level to enhance its appearance and make the breast look more pert.

“At The Harley Medical Group we can also resolve the retraction of nipples, which can be a problem for women who want to breast feed.

“Patients having Breast Augmentations will often find their nipples will remain erect for a while after surgery though after a time the nipples will return to their normal state.”

As rumours abound that Victoria Beckham has had a breast reduction, The Harley Medical Group has reported that the celebrity trend for smaller, more natural looking breasts, is increasingly popular amongst women coming into the Group’s 26 clinics. 75% of women who have had a Breast Augmentation at The Harley Medical Group in the last six months opted to go up just one or two cup sizes. Reflecting the less-is-more attitude now taken by many celebrities including Jordan and Ulrika Jonsson, women are opting for a more ‘real’ look.

Liz Dale, Director at The Harley Medical Group, said: “Over the last year we have seen a definite move towards smaller, more natural looking breast shapes across both our reduction and augmentation business. Look-at-me, statement décolletage is definitely becoming less popular. This could in part be due to the global trend we have seen in a lot of consumer areas for taking a more subtle approach to personal presentation.”

All patients considering cosmetic surgery should ensure that their surgeon is trained and registered in the GMC Specialist Register as a Plastic Surgeon and ensure that their first consultation is carried out by a medical professional.

Every patient at the Harley Medical Group will meet with a fully trained cosmetic surgerynurse counsellor for an initial consultation when each stage of the procedure, from consultation with the surgeon through to the post-operative, follow-up and recovery period will be explained thoroughly. The clinical aspects of the operation will also be covered in detail, any questions will be answered and concerns addressed. Nurse counsellors can also put potential clients in touch with other patients who have undergone the same treatment.

Only after both patient and nurse are happy to proceed will an appointment be made with a surgeon who will assess the patient for suitability and talk through the procedure in detail.

The Harley Medical Group reveals UK tummy tucks and non-surgical procedures are still booming

Figures released by The Harley Medical Group, the UK’s largest cosmetic surgery provider, reveal the cosmetic surgery market is defying the global economic downturn with a 26% growth year-on-year.

Business has been booming throughout The Harley Medical Group‘s 23 UK cosmetic surgery clinics, as Brits continue to invest in themselves. Abdominoplasty or Tummy Tuck operations as they are commonly known, have seen the biggest rise in popularity, with a 54% increase year-on-year. A growing number of patients are opting for this surgery following significant weight loss, where they’re left with unsightly, excess skin flaps. The Harley Medical Group has conducted over 10,000 post-obesity surgical procedures over the last five years and with a quarter of all adults predicted to be clinically obese by 2010*, the Tummy Tuck boom looks set to continue.

Liz Dale, Director at The Harley Medical Group, commented: “What’s working for us is that we’re attracting two different types of customers. Non-surgical procedures are growing faster than ever this year – with skin treatments like Medical Microdermabrasion and Chemical Peels up 86% year-on-year – because consumers are increasingly recognising them as inexpensive, highly-effective beauty solutions.”

She continued: “However, the surgical side of the business, which accounts for 70% of all procedures, is also continuing to grow. In addition to the explosion in Tummy Tucks, Rhinoplasty procedures are up 40% and Liposuction is up 27% year-on-year, so we’re still seeing evidence that people are prepared to spend money on their appearance, despite the economic downturn. Cosmetic surgery is something that our patients will have planned for and thought about for a long time. They see surgery as an investment and are unlikely to postpone; instead they’ll cut back in other non-essential areas like taking foreign holidays.”

Michelle Gudgeon, 43 from Durham, a patient at The Harley Medical Group who’s recently had an Abdominoplasty said: “I’m cutting back in other areas because my bills have increased and I’m concerned about what might happen next year, but there was no way I was going to put off my surgery. This is something I’ve saved up and wanted for ages. Before I had the operation I’d thought about it for years. Having the procedure has given me a huge confidence boost – it’s a long time investment with a lifetime benefit.”

These latest figures also show men now make up significant patient numbers at theHarley Medical Group, accounting for 17.5% of all patients.

Lisa Littllehales, Harley Street Clinic Manager commented: “Non surgical procedures are particularly popular with men, boosting treatments of PPx Aesthera, which is used to treat acne and sun-damage. We’re increasingly offering more male-friendly treatments such as Laser Hair Removal to remove back, chest and facial hair and Botox to treat excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis). We’re definitely seeing ever more male traffic in terms of both patient enquiries and people treated.”

The Harley Medical Grouhas been established for 25 years and has performed over 400,000 treatments.

The Harley Medical Group reveals UK employers are beginning to offer staff botox leave to prep for parties

Most people have heard of ‘duvet days’ and even Christmas shopping leave. Now some businesses are introducing ‘Botox leave’ in a bid to deter employees from taking sick leave for their pre-party beauty treatments.

Cosmetic surgery provider, The Harley Medical Group has reported that enquiries for Botox treatments have increased by 21% over the last six weeks, and has noted that a number of businesses have introduced ‘Botox leave’ to cope with increase demand from their staff looking to take time off for beauty sessions. Businesses have introduced two hours leave to ensure staff can make their annual appointment for the £210 jab with their Botox Doctor without taking unauthorized leave.

Recruitment company, Blue Skies, said; “Companies are right to be inventive with their incentives. Although ‘Botox leave’ is certainly quirky, if people are adopting this incentive there is obviously a call for it. In the current market, giving people time off for endeavours that suit their lifestyles can be a cost effective way of incentivising staff if budgets do not stretch to other more obvious benefits”.

Liz Dale, Director at The Harley Medical Group said; Enquiries for Botox increased rapidly in November and December as people want to look their best for the Christmas parties. We think ‘Botox leave’ is an interesting incentive to offer employees and have seen a number of patients particularly in our Chester, City and London clinics who have been granted time away from the office for their injections.”

Stephen Fox, Managing Director of Fox Kalomaski, the marketing and advertising agency, commented; “We noticed a demand amongst our staff for a day off in the run up to Christmas to not only pick up their Christmas gifts, but also to make appointments for their hairdressing, beauty and particularly Botox treatments. We now offer all staff a day’s leave in December and have unofficially called this day”Botox Leave” because we’ve heard rumours that this is what people do with this day – to make sure they’re looking their best for the Christmas party photos”.

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.”

The Harley Medical Group Reports Laser Hair Removal Peaks As Patients Look To Take The Hassle Out Of Christmas

The Harley Medical Group – the UK’s largest cosmetic surgery provider – is reporting an all-time high in Laser Hair Removal bookings, as patients look to take the hassle out of Christmas. The stress of juggling work, family commitments and Christmas shopping has led to a boom in the procedure with bookings up by 25% throughout November.

Jennifer O’Callaghan, a Laser Hair Removal patient, said: “I’ve just had Laser Hair Removal for the first time after a colleague recommended I give it a try. 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. Since having the treatment I’ve been able to throw out my razors, epilator and hair removal creams – it’s fantastic”

Laser Hair Removal can treat almost all parts of the body including the face, bikini-line, under arms, legs, nipples and tummy-line. It’s quick and gentle but can remove all unwanted hair permanently.

Liz Dale, Director of The Harley Medical Group, commented: “Laser Hair Removal is our most popular non-surgical procedure amongst women. Every year, in the run up to Christmas, we have a rush of people into our clinics wanting
to look their absolute best. Non-surgical treatments offer affordable and accessible solutions to take the stress out of your beauty regime and giving you one less thing to worry about this festive season.”

The Harley Medical Group, the UK largest cosmetic surgery provider, has revealed that youth boosting ops are booming as older workers look to compete with their younger counterparts. Figures show that bookings for surgery amongst 45-65 year olds doubled in 2008 and Botox treatments are up 51% year on year.

Clinic staff at the Harley Medical Group‘s 23 clinics across the UK say they’re increasingly seeing patients who want to look as young as they feel, particularly as competition for jobs becomes fiercer during the credit crunch.

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. It appears that, like older workers, they feel it’s important to invest in their looks, despite cutting back across other areas.”

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.”

The Harley Medical Group Announce Postcodes Predict UK Surgery Preferences

Following a data crunch of 400,000 postcodes of cosmetic surgery patients, The Harley Medical Group, the UK’s largest cosmetic surgery company, has revealed the UK’s cosmetic surgical capital. Newcastle has been officially announced the top of the ops of the UK – with more cosmetic surgery procedures and treatments per capita than any other UK city.

Unsurprisingly, London came in second place with looks conscious Essex folk from Chelmsford coming in third place in the UK’s Cosmetic Surgery Postcode Charts, produced by The Harley Medical Group.

Other cosmetic surgery hot spots were Bristol, Southampton, Cardiff and Manchester. Top procedures for each cosmetic surgery postcode were also identified with Breast Augmentation popular in Bristol as well as Newcastle, while London claimed the title of Botox Capital of The UK.

Liz Dale, Director at The Harley Medical Group said: “We started the data crunch in order to identify the best locations to open our next five clinics and the data team started to see very strong cosmetic surgery postcode trends appear – with patients happily travelling up to three hours to their nearest clinic. Postcodes can now been seen as a clear indicator as to how likely someone is to have cosmetic surgery, and even where there is an increased likelihood towards certain procedures.”

The results also revealed the further North a patient lives, the bigger the cup size, as patients in Newcastle, Manchester and Leeds, as well as Cardiff and Bristol on average 47% more likely to have a Breast Augmentation than any other region. London is officially The Botox Capital, with Londoners 71% more likely to opt for the wrinkle removing jab and the City clinic using 200% more vials of the Botox toxin than any other clinic. In the south coast town of Brighton, non surgical Laser Hair Removal is the order of the day especially amongst the clinic’s male patients, who account for 43% of the treatments.

In Birmingham and Bristol more tonnes of fat are removed by Liposuction than the rest of the country. Brummies are also 60% more likely to opt for the eyebag removal op – Bletharoplasty. The Irish are losing inches thanks to tummy tucks and breast reduction surgeries with residents in Belfast being 35% and 72% respectively more likely to have these ops than any other region. Those living in Nottingham are 52% more likely to go under the knife for the perfect nose.

Chester residents, home to many WAGs, are most likely to opt for top to toe packages. They’re 38% more likely to have a Face Lift. They also buy two thirds more packages of non surgical treatments including the Y-lift – a combination of Botox and Fillers – an alternative to a Face Lift.

Newcastle Clinic manager, Anne Newby added: “We’ve seen patient numbers increase by 27% since last year as the demand across both surgical and non surgical treatments increases. Whilst

Breast Augmentation is the most popular op, patients, aren’t necessarily increasing cup size dramatically – a C cup is the norm.”
