Does Bullying Lead To Surgery?

Research conducted in February by Liberate (a cosmetic surgery group in London) has found that almost half of the women who took part in their study were bullied at school, influencing their interest in cosmetic surgery.

3,000 British women between the ages of 18 and 30 were surveyed for the study. When asked if they had ever been bullied or picked on about their appearance, 47 percent answered yes and 52 percent responded no. Of the women who admitted to have been bullied, 43 percent of them said that in order to fix the problem they would consider a cosmetic procedure.

These are surprising results for two reasons. The first: half of the women polled were bullied at one point in their life. The second: half of the women bullied believe cosmetic surgery could fix the issue causing them to have originally been teased. The question begs, “Are some women opting for plastic surgery without making a careful decision?” Cosmetic procedures affect one financially, physically and emotionally and should only be selected after significant research and analysis.

Does your past affect how you view cosmetic surgery?
