In America, which has long been ranked first in the world in terms of the number of plastic surgeries per capita, young people are increasingly going to clinics. And they do not meet with serious objections from their parents, without whose permission adolescents could not go through such operations. Today's young people are too painfully aware of their own imperfection in a world where the cult of beauty reigns.
From newspapers and magazines to TV and movies, we are surrounded by the world of photo models, cute Hollywood stars or stunning pop queens. Teenagers look up to their famous peers and want to look the same. Increasingly, they require plastic surgery for purely cosmetic purposes.
Famous American plastic surgeon Dr. Lane Smith considers parental connivance unreasonable. “This is a purely psychological problem,” says the doctor. - Well, let's ask a hundred 15-year-old girls about whether they are satisfied with their bodies. And I assure you that 80 to 90% will answer this question in the negative. What, they all need surgery? But wait a few years and ask the same question to university students. And you will be amazed that the same 80-90% of respondents will answer positively.”
Dr. Smith believes that when it comes to reconstructive plastic surgery, that is, correcting the consequences of birth injuries or car accidents, then operations should not be delayed, regardless of the age of the patient. But girls who think that they do not have enough plump lips need to wait a few years. Maybe with time, their minds will change.
