There is no doubt that clinics and Plastic Surgeons are geting more and more enquires from ever younger Patients. It is commonplace now to get enquiries for breast augmentation, liposuction etc from teenagers.

They already see " defects" in their bodies and because of the popularity of cosmetic surgery it is not seen as a major undertaking by many.

Whilst we cannot deride those who want to improve themseleves , the question has to be asked if teenagers , for example, are really able to take such important and potentially life changing steps to change their looks.

Attitudes are still developing and maturing and the fear would be that a hasty desicion as a teenager could be a source of regret only a few years later
