Cosmetic surgery vouchers for child

When Poppy Burge has her birthday next month her mum Sarah Burge will hand her £8,000 of vouchers to spend on plastic surgery.

Sarah believes it’s perfectly OK to introduce her daughter to the world of Botox, facelifts, nose-jobs and boob jobs.

Sarah, 51, who has already spent more than £250,000 on her own cosmetic procedures over the last 20 years, insists that the best gift she can give Poppy is the chance to be just like her.

“I’m investing in my child’s future,” she says. “I’m giving Poppy the freedom to do what she wants. That’s what Poppy wants for her birthday.

“I think she is beautiful and I don’t think anything needs to change. But the reality of life is people don’t think they look fine as they are.

“It’s empowering for her to be able to take charge of the way she wants to look. She’ll be able to use the vouchers when she reaches 18. I’m going to keep buying them for her for Christmas and birthdays until then so she’ll have about £120,000 worth.”
