Cosmetic Interventions - Survey of Scottish Population

This report presents the key findings from an online survey of Scottish adults. It is based on research about private cosmetic procedures in Scotland and focuses on topics including public awareness and perceptions, procedures the public have undergone, expectations and understanding of procedures, resulting health problems, consideration for future procedures, and seeking advice through resources.


1. In the survey, a cosmetic procedure was defined for respondents as: "… both cosmetic surgery (e.g. breast implants) and non-surgical cosmetic procedures (e.g. botox® and dermal fillers to fill out wrinkles and plump lips). Cosmetic procedures are usually carried out privately (i.e. paid for by yourself or someone else outside of the NHS) and the following questions will relate only to these procedures paid for privately."
