Cosmetic surgery continues to increase in popularity for both Women who make up 91% of all the procedures and Men, whose numbers have doubled in the past decade. There are many factors causing the continual growth in the industry including, fashion and celebrity culture as well as a rise in non invasive cosmetic procedures which are accessible due to cost and recover times.
