The study shows that over a third, 34%, of Brits think that good appearance makes a person more of a role model and 13% believe that unattractive people aren’t as inspirational.

Christiana Clogg, founder of The Good Surgeon Guide commented on these findings,
"I wasn't shocked by the results, but elements disappointed me. It is sad to think that some people value appearance more so than talents and achievements. Donatella Versace is a successful business woman, but due to unfortunate surgery she isn't viewed as a role model."
"We commissioned this research because the purpose of our site is to help people considering surgery conduct research and get the best practitioner possible. If people really research their surgeon and their procedure than these surgical mistakes should stop happening and people will be happy with their results."
