Cosmetic surgery focus on face and chest area

There was a 14 per cent increase in the number of women opting for a facelift and a 16 per cent rise in the procedure among men, according to data released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (Asps).

Breast enlargement surgery rose by 14 per cent in women, while pectoral implants for men increased in popularity by eight per cent.

Experts suggested that the trends were unsurprising as these are the areas of the body most likely to be noticed by others.

The association's president, Dr Richard D'Amico, said: "It is not surprising that the highly visible focal points of the face and chest would interest both women and men seeking plastic surgery.

"However, while 91 per cent of plastic surgery procedures are performed on women and nine per cent are performed on men, it is interesting to see the rate of increase is comparable in both."
