I'd like to talk about teens plastic surgery. Let's have a look at a little.
Do you ever wish you looked like a model or o movie star?
Arizona twins Mike and Matt Schepp did.
The 20 year olds wanted to look like actor Brad Pitt so much that they got nose jobs, cheek and chin implants and porcelain dental veneers, totaling more than $22.000 each not a little number.
According to a new survey by Bliss, a popular British Magazine, many other teens with an average age of 15, have considered getting plastic surgery.
Let's look at the numbers of the two years.
According to The American Society of Plastic Surgeons Reports, in 2000 the number of teens who had plastic surgey was 306.000.
In 2003 the number of teens ages 18 and younger who had plastic surgery was 335.000.
In 3 years the number rose about 30.000. This means it's rising approximately 10.000 in every year. The number is on the rise.
So, here, the important point we ougth to know is that cosmetic surgery for teens only "suck". This sector is being called as "suck sector". Because so many sergeons try to get money through teens desire by operating them unnecessary reason.
Pennsylvania plastic Surgeon Dennis Hurwitz turned away two-thirds of the teen patients who visited his office to search new look. Instead, he tried to persuade them to be happy the qay they were. He could have done that, but he couldn't.
And also, the big problem with adolescent (young people who are no longer children but who have not yet become adults) is they are being operated on the most complicated time of their bodies. Because they are always being in change. They may not approve of the permanence of their look in the future. Their point of view may change in the future. Also, plastic surgery carries a risk of cmoplications, either scarring or the risk of disappointment with the results.
But sixteen year old Melanie Weiss thought the benefit was worth the risks, and had rhinoplasty "a nose job".
Melanie's mother, who also underwent rhinoplasty, didn't want her daughter's self-esteem to suffer.
She said, "I had been ridiculed about my nose from the time I was in fifth grade and I didn't want my daughter to go through the same thing."
Furthermore, one of the twins said, "The longer you go on living like that, the more it's going to affect you and bring you down." And he said, there is another plus, "It has definitely help me get more girls."
What do you think?
The disadvantages outweigh the advantages or the advantages outweigh the disadvantages?
The answer of this question may be depend on how people want to look like, but we are sure that plastic surgery will be on the rise in the future.
In my opinion, the more media brings this subjet to teenagers' attention, the more they will want to change their look as models and actors.
