Women Willing to Sacrifice for Ideal Body

women willing to sacrifice for ideal bodyWhat are women willing to sacrifice for their ideal body? A new survey shows that some would sacrifice a lot — 16 percent would trade 1 year of their life to achieve their ideal body weight and shape!

The survey of 320 women (average age of 24 years) was conducted at 20 British universities and also found that many participants would consider cosmetic surgery.

Almost 40 percent of the women surveyed reported that if money wasn’t a concern they would have cosmetic surgery to alter their appearance. Of those who said they would have cosmetic surgery, 76 percent desired multiple surgical procedures, and 5 percent reported they had already had a cosmetic procedure to alter their appearance.

The survey also found that in order to achieve their ideal body weight and shape, 26 percent of those surveyed were willing to sacrifice a variety of things, including:

  • £5000 from their annual salary (13%)
  • A promotion at work (8%)
  • Achieving an honors degree (6%)
  • Spending time with their partner (9%)
  • Spending time with their friends (9%)

The survey also revealed that 46 percent said they had been ridiculed or bullied because of their appearance, while 93 percent said they had had negative thoughts about their appearance during the past week.

Cosmetic surgery offers women lots of options for improving the body’s appearance, such as liposuction and tummy tuck. For those that undergo bariatric surgery to reduce their weight, there is a variety of body contouring procedures available to tone the body after significant weight loss, such as an arm lift.
