200275405-001A survey has revealed that almost half of women would consider cosmetic surgery to correct features that they are not happy with. The poll of 3,000 women aged between 18 and 30 years old found that 43.5 per cent of women who had ever been teased or bullied would consider cosmetic surgery to increase their self-confidence. Nearly half (47.45 per cent) of those women asked said they had been teased or bullied at some point in their lives.The research was carried out in a bid to discover how women feel about themselves, their thoughts about cosmetic surgery and to identify any gaps in knowledge about the most popular plastic surgery procedures. Recent statistics show that breast augmentation, tummy tuck surgery and face lift surgery are the procedures most enquired about by women, while popular non-surgical treatments include Botox, dermal fillers, laser hair removal and skin peels.
