        Executive Summary

        The UK cosmetic surgery industry is dynamic and growth levels are at a record high: the number of
       procedures, both surgical and non-surgical, soared by 42.4% in 2005 and Key Note estimates that, in 2006,
       this increased by a further 53%. In 2006, the total UK cosmetic surgery was worth an estimated £528.9m, a
       rise of 47.4% on 2005.

        For the purposes of this Key Note Market Report, cosmetic surgery is divided into five sectors: procedures
       on the face/neck area; those on the breast area; procedures on the lower-abdomen area; other surgical
       procedures; and non-surgical procedures. In terms of value, face/neck area procedures accounted for the
       largest share of the market in 2006, although it is estimated that non-surgical procedures experienced the
       largest growth, closely followed by those on the breast area. In volume terms, non-surgical procedures were
       dominant.

        Socio-economic factors are driving demand for cosmetic surgery. Low unemployment and increasing
       disposable incomes have led to a widening in the consumer base for procedures. In addition, easier access
       to borrowing has meant that consumers from social grades other than the AB group can see cosmetic
       surgery as a realisable investment. Demand is also coming from younger groups and breast augmentation,
       in particular, is increasingly an option for women in their 20s and 30s. In addition, more men are shifting
       their attitudes towards surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures: in 2005, 11% of all procedures were
       performed on men.

        The cosmetic surgery market is also being driven by the astonishing speed of technological advancements,
       particularly in non-surgical procedures. Increased sophistication in laser technology is a strong trend and
       combined treatments involving the use of a number of different types of non-surgical treatment —
       injectables and peels, as well as the use of cosmeceuticals — is an increasing feature of the market. In terms
       of surgical procedures, demand in facial surgery, in particular, is being boosted by advancements in
       minimally invasive techniques, which are encouraging more women to opt for the so-called `lunch-time
       lifts'. Recovery times are shorter and consumers can often be back at work shortly after fairly major
       procedures.

        The future looks strong for the cosmetic surgery industry. Major players have plans to expand, particularly
       in the area of non-surgical procedures, and, with the backing of strong regulation, the industry looks set to
       continue strong levels of growth. Although the market is not in the league of the US cosmetic surgery
       industry, attitudes towards self-improvement from across the Atlantic look set to pervade the culture in the
       UK for years to come
