The influence of cosmetic surgery

Figures from the respected organisation Girl Guiding UK have shown that almost half of girls aged seven to 21 would consider some type of plastic surgery to improve the way they look. Again, it is thought that this figure is at least in part down to the number of celebrities who have admitted having some sort of plastic surgery, such as Sharon Osbourne and Anne Robinson.

The study by Girl Guiding UK also found that girls were looking at cosmetic surgery, not just to enhance their appearance, but as a tool, comparable to dieting, that could be used as a way of improving their social standing and self esteem. The study also found that 27 percent of girls aged 10 and 11 said that they were not happy with the way they looked and that one in eight girls of that age would like to lose weight.

For most people who have a treatment at a beauty clinic or a spa it is a nice relaxing experience, but for some people it can turn into a traumatic experience leaving them scarred. If you have suffered beauty treatment injuries as a result of negligent beauty treatment in a beauty clinic, spa or hair salon from waxing treatments to hair dye, sunbeds and lasers, you might be entitled to claim compensation.
