The growing demand for cosmetic procedures is showing no signs of slowing down.

Liposuction increased by 41 percent.
This post is based on a talk given by our Council Member Professor Julian Hughes at “Dementia and stigma: a dinner and discussion” at the House of Lords on Monday 3 February. The event was organised by the International Longevity Centre-UK together with Alzheimer’s Research UK, Alzheimer’s Society, the Medical Research Council and Pfizer. Julian was a member of the Council’s Working Party which produced the report Dementia: ethical issues, published in 2009.
