Not so Jolly in Glum Blighty as Bo-Tax takes the lift out of cosmetic surgery.

Not so Jolly in Glum Blighty as Bo-Tax takes the lift out of cosmetic surgery. Bo-Tax extends to all of cosmetic surgery. The US Government could not fight the opposition of women’s groups and the electorate but in jolly-old England the Draconian new Tax Laws were introduced over the concerns of the average female patient. Not so Jolly in Blighty. Cosmetic surgery and procedures are performed 95% of the time on women. The advent of 20% VAT on Plastic Surgery is going to be discriminatory on women and on middle income groups who will be most affected by the increased cost. ‘Cosmetic Surgery’ is simply not cosmetic. Multiple scientific studies have shown that plastic surgery improves quality of life, self-esteem and confidence. Many so-called cosmetic procedures such as tummy-tucks and breast reductions, improve core strength and posture and reduce back and neck strain. Liposuction has also been shown to remove insulin resistant fat, treat diet and exercise resistant fat and reduce the risk of Type II Diabetes. Professor Kirwan now offers all of the same procedures that he currently provides in his UK office plus the NEW FRAXEL RE:STORE DUAL WAVELENGTH SYSTEM * - in his US office, but without the additional VAT charges. We also offer friendly service with a smile in a modern custom built and designed combination of medical spa and office facility. The reduced cost of the US surgical fees combined with reasonable hospital and anaesthesia charges plus the lack of any VAT, more than compensates for the additional cost of air-fare and accommodation. Surgery is performed in a state-of-the-art American Private Hospital. You can recuperate in a local hotel or enjoy a stay in one of our recommended hotels in near-by New York City.
