UK Smoking Ban Fuels Rise In Surgery

With the two year anniversary of the smoking ban upon us (1st July 2009), SurgiCare, a leading UK cosmetic surgery provider, has seen a 70 percent increase in women booking themselves in for botox and fillers and spending the cash they have saved from kicking the habit.

(PRWEB) July 11, 2009 -- With the two year anniversary of the smoking ban upon us (1st July 2009), SurgiCare, a leading UK cosmetic surgery provider, has seen a 70 percent increase in women booking themselves in for botox and fillers and spending the cash they have saved from kicking the habit.

As more women than ever are giving up smoking, it seems that they are swapping their cigs for surgery and want a new, fresher look to go with their improved health.

More than two billion fewer cigarettes were smoked last year and 400,000 people quit the habit since the ban was introduced in 2007, which researchers say will prevent 40,000 deaths over the next 10 years. Based on a 20-a-day habit, the average smoker will consume 7,300 cigarettes a year and giving up will free up an extra £2,000 per year.

Mark Bury, CEO of SurgiCare comments: "When smokers give up, it's no surprise that many realise that their looks could be improved - and having stopped smoking - can now afford to correct the damage.

"The effects of smoking in terms of aging are significant. Wrinkles, sagging and lines are all as a result of the free radicals present in cigarette smoke, which damages the skin's collagen and in turn reduce its elasticity and smoothness. The classic signs of a smoker are lines and wrinkles on the face, particularly present around the upper and lower lips and corners of the eyes. Thinning of the lips is another telltale sign and can cause woman to look much older than they actually are.

"Smoking can take up to 10 years off a person's life, while adding at least 10 years to their looks. Giving up is the biggest thing a smoker can do to prevent premature aging and help turn back the years.
"With a treatment of Botox costing £145 and fillers costing £152 - there will still be plenty of change left over from £2,000 a year saving."
