More and more Swedes want cosmetic surgery
Almost one-in-five Swedish women say they are thinking of having cosmetic surgery, an increase of almost 40 percent inside two years. The biggest interest is shown in women aged 15 to 29, with almost a third in that age group open to having plastic surgery.
The Swedish Television News programme Rapport found that the biggest change is in the number of women open to having the anti-wrinkle drug Botox and other fillers.
Tabloid Expressen's medical reporter Anna Bäsén told Rapport that "Young people have always been concerned with their looks. The difference is that now everyone has the chance to do something about it."
Rapport used Sifo to interview 1,000 people in the survey.
