Breast augmentation surgery
is still proving popular despite the recession, with new figures from the Harley Medical Group
revealing that demand has risen by nine per cent year-on-year.
The cosmetic surgery
group revealed that women are desperate to achieve a desirable hourglass figure and that most ask to increase their bust by two cup sizes.
Celebrities such as Kelly Brook and Megan Fox are often cited by patients when asked whose figure they would most like to have.
Liz Dale, director of the Harley Medical Group, noted that their surgeons always counsel patients that they will not be transformed into their heroine through cosmetic surgery.
"However, it can be useful for a patient to come to us with a clear idea of the shape they're looking to achieve," she explained.
"Most of the women we see are proud of their figures and through surgery want to achieve - or often regain - increased feelings of confidence and femininity by correcting a part of themselves they are not 100 per cent happy with."
The Harley Medical Group has been operating for over 25 years and provides a range of cosmetic surgery and non-surgical treatments
for both men and women.
