"The pressures on people to look good are considerable in current society and can result in psychological distress, and often extreme behaviours. These include changes to diet, extremes of exercise, debt from buying the 'right' clothes and/or beauty products, and increasing numbers seeking cosmetic surgery or treatments. The pressure on those with disfigurements is even more extreme."
