Surgeons slam 'human Barbie' parties paying 4K pounds reward to winner

June 8, 2011 - London

The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) has criticised plastic surgery parties, which reward the winner with 4,000 pounds top prize, calling it 'insane' and 'depraved'.

The monthly event hosted by Sarah Burge and dubbed as 'the human Barbie' trivialises cosmetic procedures, according to the surgeons.

"We are now seeing a new level of insanity and depravity in the way certain cosmetic surgery providers market and promote their services: life-changing, serious surgical procedures being raffled in an alcohol-fuelled evening extravaganza," the Daily Mail quoted Fazel Fatah, plastic surgeon and president of BAAPS as saying.

The Transpire Cosmetic Surgery-sponsored event is slated to start in London later this month and has a 'My Big Fat Plastic Surgery Prize Draw'.

The one-of-its-kind event requires people to pay 25 pounds each for 'high class partying with attractive prizes from the world of plastic surgery.'ccording to the company website, "this new theme plastic surgery and party concept is the way forward and is based on our society's fascination for all things in life that are beautiful and an object of desire."

Apart from the top prize, the event company has kept runner-up prizes, which include injectable treatments such as Botox and fillers, teeth whitening, semi-permanent make-up and pole dancing lessons.
