 Brit Schoolgirls Turning to Boob Jobs to Save Them from Bullying!

An increasing number of bullied schoolgirls in Britain are asking for boob jobs to make themselves less prone to bullying.

The girls claim that they need treatment to stop being targeted with playground taunts.


Anti-bullying charities condemned the move and said that they were horrified that youngsters were taking such drastic action.

"Children are very cruel and there's a lot of stigma attached to appearance," the Daily Star quoted Douglas McGeorge, president of the British Association of Aesthetic and Plastic Surgery as saying.

Even parents are allowing their daughters to go under the knife, in an attempt to end their bullying.

A family of a 14-year-old girl from Essex let her have a nose job after she was targeted over her appearance at three schools. The average cost of the operation was 3,500 pounds.

Mr McGeorge, a private surgeon, said her parents rang him after other attempts to end her bullying failed.

"This was an unusual case but the parents had been through every other option available," he added.

McGeorge revealed that he had also given teens expandable breast implants.

"I don't think bullying victims should be changing their appearance or anything about themselves to please the bullies," said Liz Carnell, director of charity Bullying UK.

"It is the bullies themselves that have got the problem, not the victims," she added.
