Liberate, the new cosmetic surgery group, has been completing
some public research around some shocking topics, with the most notable
revealing that almost half of the women consulted who were bullied at
school have considered cosmetic surgery in order to 'fix' themselves.
The 3000 British women between 18 and 30 years-old who took part in the research
were asked if they had ever been bullied, teased or targeted about their appearance,
to which 47.45% answered yes and 52.57% answered no. Out of the women who answered
yes to the first question, 43.5% of them said they would consider cosmetic surgery
to fix the problem.
These results from the Liberate public research show that at some point around half
of the women surveyed were bullied, and around half of these women would consider
getting cosmetic surgery because they
believe this would 'fix' the issue which was causing them to be bullied in the
Liberate believes this is a shocking statistic, as people who are being bullied
should be equipped with the proper tools to deal with it financially, physically and
psychologically instead of opting for cosmetic surgery without making an informed
and responsible choice.
The research was conducted by One Poll in February 2011 in order to record women's
feeling about their appearance and their attitudes towards to cosmetic surgery.
Liberate 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
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
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.
