Not Just An American Dream

In case anyone was wondering whether or not the plastic surgery obsession was just an American thing, it was confirmed this week by the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery that the folks across the pond are equally has addicted. The British newspaper, The Telegraph, reported earlier in the week that the BAAPS released their plastic surgery statistics for 2010 with many procedures showing significant increases from 2009.

One of the most dramatic increases was the number of Breast Augmentations done on English soil last year. BAAPS reported 9,430 cases in 2010, up 10% from the previous year. British plastic surgeons are attributing this in large part to Mad Men actress Christina Hendricks curvaceous figure. The Telegraph quotes a sources as saying, "Christina Hendricks is gorgeous, and the hourglass figure is definitely back in fashion. Let's just say that heroin chic isn't the big thing at the moment." Poor Kate Moss. It will be interesting to see if she shows up in the tabloids with double d's in the near future...

  1. Everyone has some wish for their body, whether it is toning up, losing weight, or having a plastic surgeon alter a feature that they don’t like. There are many procedures available today. You do need to choose your surgeon carefully, however, because like all medical procedures it is possible that you will have some complications after the procedure.Perhaps the most important thing that you can do is to look for a physician that is certified as a plastic surgeon.
