The Harley Medical Group, the UK's largest cosmetic surgery provider, has revealed that 15 per cent of cosmetic surgery patients treated at the group admit that their partners have also undergone some sort of cosmetic surgery treatment too, identifying a new breed of cosmetic surgery couples.

According to the figures from The Harley Medical Group, the top his 'n' hers combination sees women plumping for a Breast Augmentation whilst their male partners opt for Liposuction.

Liz Dale, Director of The Harley Medical Group, commented: "There is no doubt that patients are encouraging their partners to explore cosmetic surgery treatment options, although frequently partners will need little persuading as they can see the benefits experienced by their partner - both physically and psychologically - and don't want to be left behind or stand out in the family's photo album."

While The Harley Medical Group currently sees more women, there has been a definite increase in recent years in the number of men are going under the knife to get the look they want.

The male tummy tuck has proved to be the fastest growing procedure with a 25 per cent increase since 2006, with Gynaecomastia (male chest reduction) also up by 20 per cent across the same period. The most popular operation for men is Rhinoplasty (25 per cent of total operations performed on males patients in 2007) with Liposuction coming in second (22 per cent).
