The Harley Medical Group Reveals Many Voters Swayed On Looks Alone

The Harley Medical Group’s latest poll has found that many UK adults confess that a politician’s appearance influences the way they vote, and Brown comes out bottom of the pile for style.

Never before have politicians been under such scrutiny for their outward appearance as this year, with the series of public debates. Now, a new poll out by The Harley Medical Group reveals that over a quarter (26%) of people confessed that a politician’s appearance influences the way they vote, whilst a further 29% said it may sway their vote.

The Harley Medical Group’s survey of 2,000 adults also showed that the party leaders clearly aren’t getting enough sleep with respondents agreeing that all three would benefit from cosmetic surgery to remove their eyebags. However, almost three times more respondents (61%) suggested Gordon Brown should opt for the scalpel on his eye bags, with just 27% and 28% urging David Cameron and Nick Clegg respectively, to do the same.

While David Cameron and Nick Clegg are closely vying for the crown of style king, Gordon Brown’s chances of another term in power are likely to be hindered by his lack of style in the public eye, with just 12% admitting to liking his dress sense.

Liz Dale, director at the Harley Medical Group, commented, “With so little between the candidates, everything counts at this stage and the visual impression they convey is key. We all know experience carries a certain weight but today’s results show people like a youthful face, with 43% of respondents saying this is important to them. Famously when Nixon and Kennedy went head to head in their presidential debate, Kennedy’s tanned, boyish looks helped him win the day and ultimately the election, despite Nixon taking the debate.”

The Harley Medical Group Challenges Traditional Beauty Solutions

The Harley Medical Group is launching a new advertising campaign designed to highlight the more practical solutions offered by cosmetic and non surgical procedures.

The Harley Medical Group Challenges Traditional Beauty Solutions

The UK’s largest cosmetic surgery company hopes to tap into the day-to-day concerns of the ‘ordinary’ person to demonstrate how, contrary to some common perception, cosmetic solutions can give less dramatic and more functional beauty solutions.

The adverts, designed by Medicine Man, include an image of the bottom half of a bikini-clad woman’s body with the tag line “Bad hair day…ever considered laser hair removal.”

Another highlights how on average a woman will shave her legs 11,500 times – suggesting laser hair removal as a safe, permenant and hassle-free alternative.

Liz Dale, Director, The Harley Medical Group commented, “The adverts are now appearing on the back-end of buses across the UK. We deliberately set out create advertising that will make people do a double-take and demonstrate clearly how cosmetic and non surgical treatments can be an effective solution to unwanted hair or the removal of stubborn fat .”

The series of five adverts cover liposuction, breast surgery, lines and wrinkles treatments and laser hair removal.

The Harley Medical Group Opens New Clinic in Glasgow

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 Finds Awards Season Driving Demand For Eyebrow Lifts

The Harley Medical Group reports that high arches are the must-have look for this year, with Megan Fox, Eva Mendes and Beyonce sporting sculptured brows on the red carpet.

The Harley Medical Group, the UK’s largest cosmetic surgery provider, is reporting increased enquiries into non-surgical eyebrow lifts of around 39%, as women across the UK try to emulate the look of the stars.

The Harley Medical Group Finds Awards Season Driving Demand For Eyebrow Lifts

A spokesperson at The Harley Medical Group commented: “The non-surgical side of the business has seen real growth over the past year and our non-surgical specialists are seeing an increase in ‘combination treatments’, which offer affordable and effective solutions for lines and wrinkles. The eyebrow lift is a safe, lunchtime treatment, with the striking effect of reducing lines and opening up the area around the eye.”

According to staff at The Harley Medical Group clinics across the country, the increase in enquiries has been noticeable, with Angelina Jolie as the star possessing the looks which most women want their eyebrows to imitate. This impact on enquiries has been felt most within the London area, where the greatest increase in enquiries has been experienced.

Dr Nick Milojevic, Cosmetic doctor at The Harley Medical Group, commented, “The eyebrow lift is achieved with a combination of Botox and dermal fillers. The resulting effect gives a smooth, wrinkle free brow and helps make eyes appear larger and more open.”

Brows can be non-surgically lifted with a combination of Botox into the brow area, followed by an injection of dermal fillers into the arch of the eyebrow. The treatment is most effective if patients have an injection of Botox initially and then have the fillers treatment two weeks later. The Botox helps even out wrinkles and tighten the skin, while fillers add volume to plump and smooth creases. Results last for six to nine months.

The Harley Medical Group Reports Rise In Laser Hair Removal

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, The Harley Medical Group has seen an increase in bookings for laser hair removal on the bikini line. The Harley Medical Group, has identified an annual spike in enquires around this time of year as women prepare for the romantic night. The treatment usually requires six to eight courses of laser treatments.

Laser hair removal is proven to permanently remove hair so, unlike with waxing, regrowth is not an issue.

Lisa Littlehales, clinic manager for The Harley Medical Group, said: £The real benefit with opting for laser hair removal is that you won’t have to worry about regrowth and unhygienic ingrown hairs, which can easily become infected as a result of shaving. To keep the female area smooth is a really low maintenance look, which is particularly good for time-limited women who don’t have hours to put into an intense grooming regime but who want a long-term solution to staying fuzz free.”

Laser hair removal, which has seen an increase of 15% year on year to date, is the most popular non-surgical procedure at The Harley Medical Group’s 27 UK clinics. The Harley Medical Group uses the Alexandrite (Class 4) laser designed to work on lighter skin, the YAG laser for darker skin and the Isolaz which can be used on all types of skin. All lasers penetrate deep into the dermis and as the heat builds up the hair follicles are disabled in the active growth phase, enabling effective hair removal.

All consultations at The Harley Medical Group are carried out by a fully qualified cosmetic surgery nurse counsellor followed shortly thereafter by a fully qualified and registered Plastic Surgeons. The Harley Medical Group has been established for more than 26 years and has 27 clinics in the UK and the Republic Ireland.

Youth-Boosting Ops Are Booming

The Harley Medical Group, the UK’s largest cosmetic surgery provider has revealed that youth-boosting ops are booming, as older workers look to compete with their younger counterparts.

Sagging skin with lines and wrinkles on the face and neck are sure giveaways of the signs of ageing, as skin looses elasticity. Enquiries show that women are who were thinking about a facelift also considered a combination of a neck lift and facelift together, in order to banish the turkey neck and sagging jowls in one fell swoop.

Liz Dale, Director of The Harley Medical Group, said: “Redundancy and unemployment levels are increasing and people are looking for ways to keep themselves one step ahead of their colleagues. Most patients think about surgery for many years and office competition simply acts as a catalyst.”

Liz Dale added: “This latest ‘age preventing’ trend within the +50 market is noticeable across our 26 clinics. It appears that older workers feel it’s important to invest in their looks, despite cutting back across other areas.”

For many patients it is all about feeling more confident as they get older; there is increased pressure in the work place as it is. The stress takes its toll on health and appearance and this will inevitably affect the way in which people feel about themselves. All these feel good procedures make a significant difference to self esteem and that confidence impacts on other areas in life.

The Harley Medical Group, The UK’s Largest Cosmetic Surgery Provider, Has Released Its Performance Figures Covering The 12 Months Up To The End Of June 2009, Which Shows An Overall Growth Of 4% Over The Previous Year

The period covered by the report has proved to be a busy time for The Harley Medical Group, which achieved increases in both its cosmetic surgery provision and a notable uplift in its non-surgical divisions, with the group’s clinics in Cardiff, Newcastle and Southampton performing particularly well.

The Harley Medical Group

While breast enlargement remained the most requested surgical procedure across The Harley Medical Group’s 26 clinics, abdominoplasty surgery saw the biggest growth across the financial year (up 23%), followed by rhinoplasty which increased by 15% and liposuction (13%).

The non-surgical division has also been rapidly expanding and now accounts for 29% of Group revenue (up from 27% a year ago), with facial peels showing the biggest treatment uplift, up 171% year on year.

To help deal with the increase in the number of requests, The Harley Medical Group opened six new clinics throughout the year, with new branches launched in Maidstone, Cambridge, Reading, Sheffield, Liverpool and Manchester. The next clinic is due to be opened in Glasgow this September, giving the group a total of 27 clinics, although Chairman Mel Braham intends to quickly grow the estate, with the target set at 90 clinics across the UK and Ireland.

Mel Braham commented, “Per capita, people are five times more likely to have cosmetic surgery in the US so there’s a huge market potential still remaining in the UK. Despite the recession we’re seeing increases in surgical and non-surgical procedures at our existing clinics and that’s why we’ve committed to an expansion programme.”

Three new revolutionary treatments are also due to be released exclusively through The Harley Medical Group in 2009, including the first and currently only, FDA approved treatment for successfully reducing and removing stretch marks, a problem that afflicts nearly 90% of all women over the age of 25.
