Politicians lead rush for cosmetic surgery

Politicians and businessmen are leading the queue for cosmetic surgery and botox, according to the Harley Medical Group.

The group, which is the UK's largest provider of cosmetic surgery, revealed that there has been an increase in the number of high flying men opting to go under the knife.

Dr Fratti, a cosmetic surgeon at the Harley Medical Group, suggested that stressful careers place a strain on people's physical appearance and that some MPs are planning to undergo cosmetic surgery in August so that they have recovered in time for September.

As for businessmen, Dr Fratti said: "The business world is such a youth-driven environment, particularly in the City where the average age of a trader is late 20s.

"Competition is tough and as you get older you're expected to retire. Our patients feel looking younger gives them an edge in their career, especially during a time when job cuts are now becoming rife."

According to the Harley Medical Group, there has been a 33 per cent rise in the number of men having the skin under their eyes removed (blepharoplasty), and male facelift surgery has increased by 17 per cent.

Blepharoplasty generally costs in the region of £2,600 to £4,325 in a private hospital in the UK.
