Anger at 'plastic surgery parties'

A plastic surgery "party" with a £4,000 (€4,480) top prize has been condemned as "insane" and "depraved" by leading surgeons.

Leading plastic surgeons said the monthly events hosted by Sarah Burge -- dubbed "the human Barbie" -- trivialise cosmetic procedures.

Transpire Cosmetic Surgery is sponsoring the events, which will start in London later this month. The My Big Fat Plastic Surgery Prize Draw party includes a bar open until 1am and resident DJs.

People will pay £25 each for "high class partying with attractive prizes from the world of plastic surgery," the website says.

Runner-up prizes include injectable treatments such as Botox and fillers, teeth whitening, semi-permanent make-up and pole-dancing lessons.

Respected plastic surgeon Fazel Fatah, said: "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."
