Teenagers, as anyone else, can benefit from reconstructive plastic surgery in case of mutilation or deformities. However, if it is for beauty reasons only, they should wait until their bodies are fully developed.

This has a simple reason: until the body is fully developed (at about 23 years old), the body features continue to change. You do not stop any part of the body from changing with plastic surgery and therefore you will not get a final result from it. Many plastic surgeries done on teenagers need to be retouched or fully done again at a later age.

Sometimes plastic surgery is a wonderful elective for those who "need" it. For example a car accident left a teen scared or maimed in a manner that plastic surgery could possibly remedy, or a 17 year old felt out of place because her nose was abnormally large and she had to deal with constant ridicule.

If your teen wants to be more attractive with a bigger bust, or more defined cheek bones; she should receive guidance from a counselor

i think teens she just stay the way they are and not get worried about what they look life it's not all about looks."if your a prick" then you would care about looks but teens should just stay the way they were born...
