Sarah Burge, the U.K. mother, model, businesswoman, and self-proclaimed plastic surgery consultant, has garnered more controversy for giving her 7-year-old daughter a voucher for liposuction.
The 51-year-old mom, widely known as the “Human Barbie” for her multiple expensive plastic surgeries, thought giving young Poppy Burge a $10,900 plastic surgery wasn’t a problem- especially since last year, her daughter received a breast enlargement voucher for Christmas.
“She wants to look good and lipo is one of those procedures that will always come in handy,” the mom said, according to MailOnline.
Although the elementary-school child is far too young to lawfully undergo any plastic surgery, the Cambridgeshire parent believes the vouchers are like “investing in [Poppy’s] future- like saving money for college.”
“Poppy begged me for a boob job, so I gave her the voucher so she can have it after she’s 16, when it’s legal,” said Sarah, although she does have a backup plan in case Poppy before that age.
“If she develops naturally big boobs, she can have something else done with it.”
It isn’t surprising that Poppy seems to be intent on having surgeries: her mother has had extensive work done, and her two older sisters, Charlotte and Hannah, have had botox, and plan more procedures in the future. Sarah’s stepdaughter, Jazzy, has undergone botox treatment also.
Sarah’s nonchalant demeanor concerning plastic surgeries for her daughters could be the product of her disparate life experiences. According to her website, the mother of three was previously a teenaged prostitute, a Playboy bunny, and a domestic violence victim.
Sarah said she was “beaten to within an inch of my life by the person who claimed to love me most,” and that the violence led her to get her very first surgery.
“My face was smashed to a pulp and I needed extensive surgery to rebuild my face and my confidence,” read her website. Ever since then, the plastic surgery addict has used the procedures to remake herself in her own image.
Now, a 7-year-old girl follows in her mother’s footsteps- despite a very different upbringing, satiated with the expensive gifts of a successful parent.
“I wanted a new computer, a holiday and a voucher for surgery. When I got it all, it was a dream come true,” said the young girl.
“I can’t wait to be like Mummy with big boobs. They’re pretty,” she added.
