The Committee of Advertising Practice is proposing that cosmetic surgery adverts should not be aimed at people under 18 years of age.
The advertising ban would include adverts for breast enlargement, liposuction and nose jobs.
At present there aren't any laws that regulate the advertisement of cosmetic surgery procedures to under 18s in the UK.
The calls for reform follow on from concerns expressed about the impact of body image pressures on young people and children, leading to concerns about theimental health.
Cosmetic surgery clinics have advertised on mainstream TV shows such as Love Island which are popular among the young. One advert for breast enlargement was banned by the Advertising Standards Authority because it promoted cosmetic surgery as an aspirational lifestyle choice.
The ban would also impact on the advertising of cosmetic surgery procedures on social media.
