2015’s cosmetic trends revealed: ‘Full abdominoplasty’ the fastest growing surgical procedure, while ‘dermal fillers’ prove to be most popular non-surgical treatment

Cosmetic treatments were big news in 2015, ranging from popular procedures like breast implants and lip plumping à la the Kardashian-Jenner dynasty to more subtle dermal fillers for supermodel Cindy Crawford and tattoo removal for queen of style Victoria Beckham. New data from healthcare search engine WhatClinic.com reveals 2015’s most popular surgical and non-surgical treatments and highlights which cosmetic trends will be big in 2016.
A full abdominoplasty was the fastest growing surgical procedure of 2015, with a 351% increase in enquiries*, despite a hefty price tag of £5,491, on average, in the UK. The procedure involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen in order to tighten the muscle and fascia of the abdominal wall. 
Breast implants topped the list for the second year in a row as the most popular procedure of the year, with the largest number of enquiries to cosmetic clinics in the UK at an increase of 183% since 2014. This procedure shows no sign of slowing down as it featured as number seven on the top ten list of fastest growing surgical trends even though it includes a price tag of £3,817, on average.
Those looking to reduce their breast size showed a much bigger increase as enquiries for breast reduction surgery soared ahead to be the fourth fastest growing trend for 2015, seeing a 212% increase in enquiries over the last 12 months, and an average price of £5,160. Breast reconstruction also proved to be growing quickly in-demand, coming in at number two on the list, with an average cost of £4,638.
Enquiries for arm lift surgery have increased by 252% since last year and this procedure is set to be one of the more popular in 2016 as number three on the top trends list. Those looking to get rid of their ‘bingo wings’ will pay an average of £4,290 for this procedure.
Liposuction, the second most popular surgical procedure for 2015, increased in popularity by 167%. Now at an average price of £2,800, the procedure increased in price by a third (up from £2,107) since 2014. Tummy tucks also saw a massive increase in enquiries at 209%, and came in as the third most popular treatment in 2015 while also featuring as number five on the top trend list of biggest increase in enquiries.
Commenting on the data trends, Emily Ross, Director of WhatClinic.com, said: “The cosmetic surgery and medical aesthetic industries continue to thrive and 2015 saw a massive increase in enquiries for procedures in the UK. On the surgical side of the market, abdominoplasty is the stand out treatment of 2015.”
“This is an industry that moves quickly. Demand is high, but in some cases, so is the risk. That’s why it’s so important for patients to have realistic expectations, and to not be swayed by offers or deals.”

As the most popular procedure two years in a row, dermal fillers experienced a drop in price of 10% compared to 2014, now costing an average price of £252. As eighth on the list for largest increase in enquiries, dermal fillers will continue to be in high-demand for 2016.

Ms. Ross continued: “Regarding non-surgical treatments, injectables are more popular than ever, with record demand for dermal fillers in particular. Botox-type wrinkle treatments and lip augmentation have definitely gone mainstream in comparison to just a few short years ago. 
“Sometimes it’s better to wait for the ’latest’ thing to become tried and tested before you sign on the dotted line. Nothing is risk free, so start by researching the treatment. Reading reviews is a good way to start!”
