Cosmetic surgery ‘age of consent’ to be lowered


The age at which a person can have plastic surgery without the consent of a parent is to move from 18 to 10.

Following significant lobbying from the cosmetic surgery industry, MP’s look likely to rubber stamp an initiative to allow younger people access to the essential beautifying process. Psychologists have suggested that the age of consent should be nearer to 45, but Peter Thape, spokesman for the Industry’s collective body, has dismissed such nanny-state thoughts.

‘Children are the future for our industry; they’ve all got chins, noses and tummies too,’ said Thape.

‘Once we get into the schools, it’s all gravy. Then we can bring in our sister company…compensation claims against bad cosmetic surgery,’ added Thape.
