“Real Life Barbie”, Sarah Burge Gives 8 Year Old Daughter Cosmetic Surgery Vouchers

Apr 8th 2012 at 10:53 PM

In an age when most mothers are working hard to shield their daughters from the rampant sexualization of young girls, the self-proclaimed “Human Barbie”, Sarah Burge is advocating for her young daughter to plan ahead for things like breast augmentation and liposuction surgery. When Burge’s daughter, Poppy was 6 years old, her mother taught her to pole dance and gave her a large voucher of 6,000 pounds for breast augmentation. When she was seven, her mom gifted her a 7,000 pound voucher for liposuction. It makes sense that at the age of 8, Poppy would receive an 8,000 pound voucher for cosmetic surgeries of her choice.


With the advent of televisions dramas like “Toddlers and Tiaras”, the general public is unfortunately becoming more and more comfortable with the sexualization and objectification of young girls. Organizations like the American Psychological Association (APA) see this as a trend that is disturbing enough to warrant the development of a task force to deal with the sexualization of girls in our society. Over time, a young girl’s expectations and ideas about what it means to be beautiful can be seriously skewed by the media. Many experts argue that the objectification of young girls is getting to dangerously inappropriate levels.


Sarah Burge is a Playboy Model who has had over 100 cosmetic surgeries done on herself. Indeed, she is in the Guiness Book of world records for having so many cosmetic surgeries. The APA task force has made the observation that one of the components of sexualization is the sense that one’s value comes only from his or her sexual appeal. Sarah Burge has been criticized for passing this view of females along to her young daughter who readily desires to have surgery as soon as she turns 16. Poppy is not yet even aware of her own post-adolescent physical characteristics but she is being taught to view them as substandard.


Burge has spent over 1 million dollars on her own plastic surgeries including rhinoplasty, a buttocks lift, breast augmentation and enhancements, liposuction of the face and jawline, and liposuction of the hips and thighs. She has had a tummy tuck, eyelid lift, and chin augmentation to mention just a few of the many procedures she’s had over the years. Some, however, were necessary in order to repair injuries that she sustained in an attack by her ex-boyfriend.


In our society, plastic and cosmetic surgeries are considered to be normal, everyday procedures, but a lot of people have a very visceral response to the idea of telling perfectly normal children to have cosmetic surgeries done. The APA argues that this is because when children are forced to carry themselves with an adult-like sexuality, it is often because it was imposed upon them rather than chosen by them. Though breast augmentation may be entirely appropriate for a woman who has breast fed four children and wants a perkier look, the prevailing view is that pushing the same procedure on a child goes beyond the logic of good parenting.
