Adverts for breast enlargement surgery are leading to a disturbing trend where young women are taking out crippling loans for breast implants

Shannon Headd, from Hackney, east London, took out a £6,339.10 loan to cover a £5,000 which saw her go from an A-cup to 34DD. The 24-year-old single mother will be paying back the loan at a rate of £160 a month for the next three years

Nurse Laurane, 25, is in debt after signing up to a loan so that she could afford to have breast augmentation surgery

TV adverts for cosmetic surgery including breast implants regularly pop up on screens now

Shannon had to use her child benefits to get her loan application approved - but the APR jumped from 9.9 per cent to nearly 20

Joanne Jones, 24, claims her patient co-ordinator suggested she find the remaining cash for her surgery by asking her bank for a zero per cent credit card to pay it over two years. Her payments will soon hit £200 a month

MYA says its loan providers are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and carry out affordability checks, so that only 23 per cent of applicants get approved
