Plastic Surgery for Children, how far is too far?

Unlike we tend to think, cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery is not limited to adults, especially who have the stash to do so. When it comes to emergency and trauma-related cases, these procedures can not only save someone’s life, they also help the person in giving them second chances to move on. Nobody wants their unique features got smashed so cruelly in a snap, right?

Especially when it comes to kids, they also sensitive about their appearance and self-esteem, as well as to be accepted by their peer group even after surviving some intense and traumatic experiences; with cases included from way back to their early years like birth defects, cleft lip and palate, scars from bites and infections, deep injuries like wounds and severed parts (ouch), or serious medical issues like craniosynostosis, where the little one’s head closes earlier than normal.

If your child is having these issues, your doctor certainly recommend and schedule them dates for surgeries ASAP as when it comes to kids, the earlier and prompt responses is better than later. Simply because children grow up at high rate, and this preventative step can certainly save a lot of hassle, time, and money spent for more surgeries in later life.

And this is where it gets interesting yet worrying at the same time – a growing number of our younger generation loves to have some sort of plastic surgeries here and there, simply because they think they don’t look good enough.

Trending of youngsters looking for their improved self is likely among the ones who have poor body image and thinks that cosmetic surgery is the solution for them. And not surprisingly, new research have concluded that the new generation concerned about the way they look, complete with their favorite designer labels and diet disorders like bulimia is on the rise.

It doesn’t matter if the kids want to have surgeries that can fix any obvious scars and moles (though being ridiculed is not a healthy thing) but the trend of changing their features drastically can be seen as one step too far. Breast implants? Seriously? But that’s exactly happen with girls under 18, with surgeries performed as more than 24, 000 last year.
