  Cosmetic Surgery Thursday 13 February 2003  
Trout lips - it's the kind of taunt you would expect in the school playground - yet it's the language being used about actress Leslie Ash who recently had collagen injections into her top lip - which ended up giving her a very noticeable pout. In a final gesture of humiliation, Sunday newspaper readers were invited to phone in & vote for who has the best fish face - Leslie or the trout!

Leslie has called her injections a fashion accessory - but the response was so nasty - she feared that the comments would end her career.
Dr Eileen Bradbury is a Medical Psychologist who counsels both people with facial disfigurement and people wanting cosmetic surgery. She joins Sheila McClennon to talk about our obsession with cosmetic change.
