London, UK (PRWEB) December 1, 2008
The Harley Medical Group, the UK largest cosmetic surgery provider, has revealed that youth boosting ops are booming as older workers look to compete with their younger counterparts. Figures show that bookings for surgery amongst 45-65 year olds doubled in 2008 and Botox treatments are up 51% year on year.
Clinic staff at the Harley Medical Group's 23 clinics across the UK say they're increasingly seeing patients who want to look as young as they feel, particularly as competition for jobs becomes fiercer during the credit crunch.
Liz Dale, Director of the Harley Medical Group, commented: "People are looking for ways to keep themselves one step ahead of their colleagues. Most patients think about cosmetic surgery (http://www.harleymedical.co.uk/ ) for many years and office competition simply acts as a catalyst."
She added: "It's not just older patients who cite this as a reason, many of our patients at the City clinic, especially men, are using cosmetic treatments such as Botox (http://www.harleymedical.co.uk/non-surgical-solutions/line-and-wrinkle-treatments/ ) to take years off their looks giving them increased confidence and, they feel, an edge to their looks. It appears that, like older workers, they feel it's important to invest in their looks, despite cutting back across other areas."
