Huge numbers willing to go under knife to alter their appearance, study finds
Date:10/26/2007

e," Frederick said. "People interested in cosmetic surgery did not report less satisfaction with their body or face than people who are not interested. People interested in liposuction, however, did report lower body satisfaction, even when statistically controlling for body weight."

According to the American Association of Plastic Surgeons, nearly 11 million cosmetic surgery procedures were performed in 2006 a 48 percent increase from 2000. Roughly 90 percent of cosmetic surgeries in 2004 were performed on women.

For the study, UCLA researchers analyzed the responses of more than 52,000 people ranging in age from 18 to 65, with an average age in the mid-30s to an online survey conducted by MSNBC.com and Elle.com in 2003.
