Cosmetic surgeons have issued a warning over a website which offers free breast implants.
The site, which invites women to post photos of themselves and encourage men to donate money for their breast enlargement surgery, is "shocking" and "degrading", members of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (Baaps) have said.
"I thought I could no longer be appalled by the circus-like atmosphere surrounding plastic surgery - but this is really quite shocking," said Adam Searle, consultant plastic surgeon and former president of the Baaps.
"The invitation for women to post suggestive photos, sell personal items and chat with strangers over the internet in exchange for a breast augmentation is just plain degrading," he claimed.
President Douglas McGeorge pointed out that the decision to undergo breast enlargement surgery should be "serious" and "fully informed" and said that the website's lack of proper medical assessments for patients could endanger someone's health.
Patients who are considering breast implants are advised to seek proper medical advice and only visit reputable private clinics.
