The older we get the more we feel as though our childhoods flew by. when we are in it, though, especially in our teens, we can feel each day creep by. when we get older, we often wish that we could have given our younger selves some advice on how to improve our self-esteem at a much younger age, rather than wasting one’s teens and twenties on low self worth. It looks like some teens don’t need this advice, as they are seeking change for themselves when they experience discomfort or dislike of certain features. This is just one of the reasons that 1.3% of plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures performed in 2010 in the United States was on teens, whether surgical and nonsurgical. Maybe they took a cue from their parents and wanted to skip the step of hating this or that about their figure or features, but some saved up their allowances and summer job wages to help them transition out of teen discomfort into young adult confidence.
The fact is the longer any man or woman doesn’t feel comfortable in his or her own skin, the more damage is done to their self-esteem in the long term. It has been shown to affect social abilities, academic completions, and career pursuits throughout one’s life. So some teens are taking their confidence and potential successes into their own hands, and today plastic surgery is one of the number one ways that the financially fortunate, whether teen or adult, can affect the physical changes they want to see on themselves.
Teen plastic surgery has been a recurring trend throughout the history of cosmetic procedures. It is used to perform corrective surgery after injury, asymmetrical breasts, breast reduction, nose jobs, and gynecomastia, a type of breast reduction for young boys who are overweight, for decades. Teens may have represented 1.3 percent of the total amount of cosmetic procedures performed in 2010, but many of the procedures that they continue to flock to are not the dramatic vain changes that one would expect. Ear surgery (otoplasty) and breast reduction surgery exceed liposuction. As far as non-surgical procedures were concerned, they most often opted for the benefits of laser hair removal and chemical peels to help improve the appearance of their skin. most of the repetitive topical cosmetic changes included scar removal, tattoo removal, or chemical peels, which lead the pack in cosmetic procedures that teens have performed in any year, according to the annual trending data of the leading plastic surgery statistics reporting authority, American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).
