Blame it on the vajazzle, I say. Once a  woman has decided that it’s not just OK but de rigueur to depilate and adorn her private parts with stick-on bling… well, why wouldn’t she then turn her attention to her nipples and decide to have them tattooed one shade darker than nature intended?


And while she’s at it, what about an eyebrow transplant to make her look more like Cara ‘model of the moment’ Delevingne? Or body-sculpting, to give her the supermodel’s covetable thigh gap? Or a fat transfer, sucking the stuff out of a well-stocked thigh to plump up scrawny hands and sagging breasts? Then there’s always labiaplasty, which — oh dear, let’s come to that later. While the recent Keogh report has made many timely and sensible recommendations for regulating unpoliced parts of the cosmetic surgery world, the rising popularity of these esoteric new procedures makes it sound as if British women have gone completely mad. Whatever happened to the staples of cosmetic surgery: the boob jobs, liposuction and nose-fixing?
