Northenden, United Kingdom (PressExposure) June 01, 2009 -- SurgiCare has revealed that enquiry figures for tummy tuck procedures have risen by over 70 per cent during the first quarter of 2009. This increase is great news for Surgicare who this year received 355 enquiries during the usually relatively slow period between January and March, compared with 207 enquiries over the first three months last year.
This latest data from the cosmetic surgery provider indicates that as the summer approaches many people are starting to become more bikini conscious, and are looking for the quickest solution to get them to their ideal figure and ready for the beach.
Abdominoplasty, which is often commonly referred to as a tummy tuck, is usually performed to help remove excess skin on the tummy which has been gained due to pregnancy or as a result of losing a large amount of weight. The procedure is designed to help smooth and add firmness to a person's abdomen, giving the patient a slimmer and trimmer profile.
These figures follow on the back of a survey carried out by Surgicare on post-op weight loss surgery patients which found that the average reduction in waist size following surgery was 13.2 inches. 80% of patients also expressed experiencing a significant improvement in their overall quality of life since their procedure and 77% stated that they would consider cosmetic surgery again in the future.
Based on these figures and trends from previous years' SurgiCare is preparing for a record year, as Brits shun the economic crisis and instead seek a confidence boost by preparing to look their best for the beach.
