Plastic Surgery: How Young Is Too Young?
How Young Is Too Young For Plastic Surgery?
In the past, the popularity of plastic surgery peaked around the age of 40 and 60 years old. That has changed drastically. Women in their 20s and 30s are asking for Liposuction or Breast Augmentation surgery. Even women 18 or 19 are requesting the surgeries. But then, they are considered adults- so how young is too young?
The age of plastic surgery has been creeping down and even teens are coming in for nose jobs and liposuction more readily. Before performing surgery on patients of any age but especially younger patients, there are certain things you have to be sure of:
Their motivations for surgery. You have to make sure they are getting work done for the right reasons.
They must understand the implications of the procedure and the side effects.
There are no parental pressures. The patient has to want the surgery; in the end it is them who is getting the surgery- not their parents.
