03 October 2012

A new survey has revealed just how keen Australian women are to go under the knife in order to achieve their ideal body. According to a report by News Talk ZB, almost a third of women in the country would be willing to have an invasive plastic surgery procedure in order to get their ideal shape.Researchers found that the vast majority of women in Australia are unhappy with the way they look. Only four per cent of the women surveyed said they were satisfied with their appearance. Many women Down Under believe there is a direct correlation between looking good and feeling great. Half of the females who took part in the survey said they believed having a better body would drastically improve their lives. Celebrities play a significant role in forming women's aspirations, according to the study, with most wanting to have the stomach of Miranda Kerr and Gisele Bundchen's long legs. And it's not just Australian women who are keen on using cosmetic procedures to improve their looks – an increasing number of men are using treatments such as Botox to fight the signs of ageing. By the end of the year it is anticipated that consumers in Australia will have spent just under $7bn on their appearance. See original article here:
