Cosmetic surgery: Ex-model warns over procedures

There has been a dramatic increase in the popularity of cosmetic surgery in the UK, according to figures from the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons.

The number of nose procedures, face lifts and breast implant operations all soared by more than 10% last year while the biggest boom was in the popularity of liposuction - up by 41%.

Former glamour model, Alicia Douvall, has had more than 100 cosmetic procedures. She says people considering surgery should "go on holiday, have counselling... anything rather than commit to a lifetime of operations."
