Number of cosmetic surgeries on the rise (Germany)

The number of cosmetic operations and aesthetic interventions rose by a good nine percent last year, according to a doctor survey conducted by the Association of German Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (VDÄPC). 
Men: The number of surgical interventions among men doubled. These include things such as upper eyelid lifting, liposuction, nose correction, face lifting, abdominal and thigh lifting.

Woman: Breast operations in women also account for a large proportion of the increase. Often it is not a question of larger breasts, but a different form, it was said. Women also undergo wrinkle treatment more often. Lip corrections are at the top of the list, especially among the younger ones – based on models from the Internet and social media.

Young People: Breast augmentation, lip augmentation and lateral lifting of the eyebrows are the most popular procedures for young people.

A problem is a growing number of corrective interventions becoming necessary in previous operations.
Overall, the number of cosmetic operations reported to the association in Germany grew by nine percent from 2017 to 2018 to 77,485.
