New data from the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) found that 51,140 procedures were carried out in 2015, up 13 per cent on the previous year.

Breast enlargement remains the most popular operation, with 9,652 procedures carried out in 2015 (up by 12 per cent on 2014).

Eyelid surgery is also popular among both sexes, with 8,689 operations (up 12 per cent), followed by face or neck lifts (7,419, up 16 per cent) and breast reduction (6,246, up by 13 per cent).

Liposuction saw the biggest jump of any procedure - up by 20 per cent - with 5,551 operations performed in 2015.

Nose jobs, fat transfers from one part of the body to another, tummy tucks and brow lifts were also featured on the list.

Among men, 260 procedures were for fat transfer while 117 were for tummy tucks.
