Talk about being an enabler to a potential plastic surgery addiction. It doesn’t get any worse than this.
With a mother commonly referred to as the “Human Barbie,” it was pretty likely that Hannah Burge would eventually dabble in the world of plastic surgery. She just decided to make the plunge a little earlier than anyone expected.
Last year, at age 15, Hannah became the youngest British girl ever to get BOTOX. That is saying a lot — those Brits really love their plastic surgery. For Hannah to become the youngest places her in a very exclusive group, even in a country of plastic surgery junkies.
According to Hannah: “I had a couple of lines on my forehead and around my mouth, which I was unhappy about. Appearance is important to me and I don’t want to look haggard and ugly by the time I’m 25.”
I have to be honest, I really don’t know too many people who look haggard at 25. It just doesn’t happen, and if it does, it is most likely due to one of two reasons:
- Living hard and partying harder
- Being a bit overzealous in the sun
Even these two lifestyle choices generally won’t rear their affects on your face at age 25. Chances are, you will even still get carded at most bars (at least in this country — I can’t speak for British pubs). I’m 33 and I still get carded at most bars. And no one has ever stuck a needle in my face. [email protected]&k; that!
Recently, Hannah has had two additional BOTOX treatments. However, unlike the first procedure which was performed at a clinic in Spain, her two recent injections were administered by Mama Barbie herself. That’s right, her mom, the Human Barbie, willingly stuck needles into her 16-year-old daughter’s face to remove wrinkles. What is this world coming to?
I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that this woman is so happy to push her daughter down the road to a lifetime of body image issues. Her nickname speaks volumes on this subject. So do her actions.
Sarah Burge, a.k.a. the Human Barbie, has reportedly spent more than $750,000 on plastic surgery before the age of 50, a record in Britain. She spends approximately $33,000 a year maintaining her Barbie-like appearance.
Her list of procedures is quite impressive:
- Cheek implants
- Chin implants
- Brow lift
- Upper eye lift
- Liposuction to the jaw, chin, and neck
- Three facelifts
- Tummy tuck
- Buttock implants
- Breast augmentation
- Fat transplantation
If you are reading this blog and your last name is not Burge, please learn from this crazy woman. Her obsession with plastic surgery has caused her poor daughter to fear looking haggard by the age of 25. That is truly tragic. At 25, Hannah should be relishing in the best days of her youth, not going for a facelift to desperately hang onto something she foolishly perceives as slipping through her fingers.
I’m not sure where the Human Barbie gets her money from, but clearly she has a lot lying around to spend on silicone. I hope Hannah is lucky enough to either have a serious trust fund or find some rich dude who won’t mind bankrolling what is clearly about to become a serious addiction for the rest of her life. If she has to work long, hard hours to pay for all the surgery she’s going to want, she may actually start looking haggard by age 25. Now that would be ironic.
If she’s lucky, poor Hannah may someday find a guy as fixated on appearances as she is. Perhaps she could find her soul mate in a guy nicknamed the “Human Ken.” I’ll bet that would make her mom proud.
