    Cheryl Cooper, patient experience manager for cosmetic surgery providers Pall Mall,  which commissioned the research, said: “It’s interesting and fun to see who the British public would love to look like and who inspires cosmetic surgery.

    “The same names appeared in a lot of the lists, showing the people we’re most inspired by – mostly Kate Middleton and Cristiano Ronaldo, suggesting men want muscles and sporting ability while women wish for classic and timeless looks.

    “It’s not unusual for cosmetic surgery patients to have been inspired by other people they’ve seen and images of famous people helps them articulate the end goal they’re after.”

    Prior to going under the knife people thought about it for an average of four years.

    Of those who haven’t yet taken the plunge, 23 per cent would consider getting cosmetic surgery, with a face or neck lift, tummy tuck and liposuction the top things they’d want done.

    Social media, celebrity photos and reality TV shows are among the top inspirations for people to consider getting surgery.

    A further 13 per cent of those polled via OnePoll said lockdown inspired them to get cosmetic surgery as they spent more time alone scrutinising their looks.

    Pall Mall facial plastic surgeon, Ullas Raghavan, added:  “Although pictures of celebrities and influencers are a good way for patients to articulate what they’re looking to achieve from surgery, ultimately our job is to make sure that the patient has realistic expectations and understands what is achievable.

    “Most patients we see want to improve a part of their body that’s holding them back from enjoying everyday life – they have typically been considering surgery for between four-six years and understand that it’s not something to be taken lightly.
