Brooke Bates is probably the youngest person to undergo a plastic surgery procedure to lose weight. The then obese girl had her first liposuction and tummy tuck when she was only 12 YEARS OLD! Her parents, Cindy and Joey, paid for the operation after Brooke got miserably affected with all the bullying by her schoolmates. In the same year, the young girl also received gastric band surgery after her weight returned.
Brooke had the plastic surgery done in Mexico where there regulation is less stringent. Although the operation was successful, the Bates family received disapproving comments from public who raised concerns about Brooke being too young to undergo a cosmetic procedure. Nonetheless, her parents claim that they have no regrets with the decision they made.
The girl, now in her 20s and is more commonly known as Barbie Brooke, has since become obsessed with her looks. Since her first liposuction, Brooke has already spent thousands on beauty enhancements, including a breast implant at the age of 15. Currently, she is working on ultimate dream: to look like a real-life Barbie.
