Would you approve of plastic surgery for your teenager?
Would you approve of plastic surgery procedures such as nose reshaping, breast lifts, breast augmentation, liposuction, and tummy tucks for your teenager?
Please share why or why not...
No. Reason, they are still growing and maybe one should learn to be happy with their bodies. Much of this would be solved if there wasn't such an imphasis on being "perfect". One just has to look at how celebs are treated for gaining a little weight. Jessica Simpson went up to a size 12 and many made a big fuss about it. You would have thought she had packed on a 100 pounds!! Young girls now days are so body conscious and worry about just gaining a little weight or their breast aren't big enough, etc, etc. Only plastic surgery a teen needs is to fix something after an accident or for health reasons.
No to most of it. However, if the situation had medical basis, such as deviated septum or malformation that really made the teen different and uncomfortable around peers, I would consider it. A simple surgery to correct a obvious flaw would be an easy decision for me. Examples of this would be lopsided breasts, cleft lip or pallet, horribly shaped nose, etc. Cosmetic changes that simply enhanced a feature would be a wait and see situation.
Yeah if its not gooing to cost me an arm and a leg. No really I think it should be up to the parents not the teen because she'll want more of it until she end up looking like a monster. You know teens can get all carried away with something.
I would only approve if she has a nose as big as mine. Breast, lipo, tummy tucks - absolutely NOT!
Only if it were something you could call a 'flaw'; huge nose, ears that are not pinned back, hair-lip etc.. Breast enlargements, liposuction and so on wouldn't be considered - especially because the teenage body is still forming. Some of these things even 'correct' themselves with age.

I would not approve of plastic surgery for my teenage daughter if I had one. I have three reasons for this.
1) I would let her know that she is absolutely beautiful (by the way don't add the words "just the way you are," -- seemingly innocuous words but I suspect such an addition would not be taken that way). I would let her know that she is absolutely beautiful and that no surgeon's knife could improve upon what nature (or 'God' if you prefer) has wrought.
A. I would probably talk to her about people who really need
plastic surgery. I'm talking about people in the developing
world, women and children who are the victims of all kinds
of heinous human rights abuses of all kinds, who really
need the sense of life-mending that may come with critical
plastic surgery (burns, mutilations, etc).
2) I want to focus on three procedures you mentioned: nose re-
shaping, liposuction, and tummy tucks. I would explain to her
that some of the most beautiful women in the world are so-
called full-figured models such as Crystal Renn, Kate Dillon,
etc. Kate Dillon has a wonderful quote she gave one time in
an interview. She said that she weighs herself frequently to
make sure she IS NOT LOSING weight, because she has
come to love her body so much. This is the kind of self-
acceptance we need to infuse our young women with --
beauty comes in all shapes and sizes (this is a reality not just
3) All surgery has risks. Who knows what serious complications
might arise and compromise her health forever for the sake of
relatively trivial cosmetic surgery procedures?
For the items you are asking, in no way shape or form would I allow it. Teenagers need to understand that their bodies are beautiful as they are and that they won't stay the same shape forever, because they are still growing. For those particular surgeries it would be only to enhance their beauty which they need to be able to accept for themselves. Unless it was for their health benefit, but since you did not specify that I would assume that you mean only for beauty purposes.

Would you have plastic surgery even if you knew the procedure could kill you?

If you got offered free plastic surgery what is the one thing you would change about yourself?Even the most attractive people I know have one thing about themselves that they would like improving, so what would it be that you would change if you had the chance?
