Almost eight out of 10 women would choose plastic surgery to lose weight rather than adjust their eating habits and exercise patterns, according to a new survey. The women said liposuction would ”work immediately” and ”give great results”. More than half of British men and women would rather shift excess weight through drastic surgery than diet or exercise, the poll said.

“It’s true that drastic effects can be achieved,” said Chris Inglefield from London Bridge Plastic Surgery, “but don’t forget that this should be combined with a healthy lifestyle to maintain the results.”
