Ireland will need more plastic surgeons and cosmetics specialists to cope with a booming demand for Botox injections and lip-filling procedures, new research has found.
Surgeons at Cork University Hospital (CUH) have discovered Ireland leads the way globally for the number of online searches for lip-fillers, and is third overall for the number of people enquiring about Botox.
Dr Ryan Sugrue, who headed up the research, said there was a correlation between the number of people who researched cosmetic procedures online and those who eventually had work done. He said this trend showed an explosion in Irish interests in cosmetic procedures.
The research demonstrates only UK residents showed more interest in lip-filling procedures than Irish clients between 2004 and 2017. Ireland has topped the charts for the number of people making enquiries about the injections since January 1 of this year.
