Although Botox is popular, bling is better than an enhanced bust nowadays, the poll showed, as only 22% of women aged 18-34 would prefer breast augmentation over a diamond bracelet.

Finance is not totally inconsequential, however, with 90% of women aged 18-34 preferring a vacation house in Paris than Paris Hilton's body.

Career-building seems to be a priority to women too these days, as 68% of 18-34-year-olds would rather have journalist Katie Couric's career than actress Katie Holmes's looks.

And only 23% of women aged 34-49 said they would rather have $10,000 in cosmetic procedure than $10,000 in investments.

While such procedures are mostly the pursuit of women, 70% of 18-34 year-olds said that it is just as acceptable for a man to have cosmetic work done.
