Schoolgirls as young as 14 are desperate for boob jobs to boost their self-esteem, it emerged today.
Plastic surgeons in Russia say they are coming under increasing pressure from young teens to perform breast enlargements despite the fact that their bodies haven't stopped growing.
One youngster in St Petersburg begging for an operation said: "Without as least a C cup I can't do anything in my life."
More than 60 per cent of all boob jobs in Russia are now performed on women under 28, reports Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper.
But while some clinics are treating as many as 20 teenagers every week, other surgeons are shocked by the pressure to operate on youngsters.
Cosmetic surgeon Dr Maksim Osin, from Moscow, said:"I would never undertake a plastic surgery on anyone younger than 18. Their body has not been formed yet."
