LONDON, August 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Liberate Cosmetic Surgery has discovered that 25% of women that it surveyed started to first consider cosmetic surgery between the ages of 10-15 years-old.
The 3000 British women between 18 and 30 years-old who took part in the research were asked at what age they first considered cosmetic surgery, to which 25% of women answered between the ages of 10-15 years-old. 33% also answered that they had considered cosmetic surgery between the ages of 15-18 years-old.
Liberate Cosmetic Surgery views this as quite an interesting yet shocking statistic, as it shows a large number of people may be considering plastic surgery from a very young age.
Mr Paul Banwell, consultant plastic surgeon at Liberate commented: "There is no doubt that more and more younger people are considering cosmetic surgery and breast augmentation still remains the number 1 procedure. However, the statistics regarding the age at which women are first considering surgery is quite shocking."
The research was conducted by One Poll in February 2011; surveying 3000 British women aged 18 - 30 regarding their feelings about their appearance and their attitudes towards cosmetic surgery. It wanted to explore issues young women face surrounding cosmetic surgery, look at current trends and find out what young women know and don't know about surgery.
About Liberate Cosmetic Surgery:
Liberate is designed as a service that "liberates" the consumer by allowing them to choose their cosmetic surgeon and by giving them access to their surgeon from the very first consultation and through the entire process including aftercare. Unlike other cosmetic surgery providers, Liberate do not agree with the use of "patient coordinators" or salespeople. It wants its clients to get to know the surgeon before the operation allowing them to make an informed and responsible choice.
Without the tools needed to make responsible choices cosmetic surgery can end up costing people financially, physically and psychologically, Liberate aims to give people the power to choose, providing them with a new and safer approach to cosmetic surgery, including breast surgery UK and cosmetic surgery for women.
Liberate surgeons are all extremely experienced and skilled, and are also members of BAAPS (British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons) and/or BAPRAS (British Association of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons). With over 60 clinics across the UK, there is no reason why patients shouldn't be able to choose a highly qualified surgeon near them
