In 2009, nearly 210,000 cosmetic surgery procedures were performed on teens between the ages of thirteen and nineteen. The top five procedures performed were nose reshaping, breast reduction in men, breast augmentation, ear surgery, and liposuction. A driving factor for these surgeries—then and today—is the desire to fit in, and to correct what are seen as imperfections. This book serves as a friendly guide, teaching teens about the risks and dangers involved in cosmetic surgery, while dispelling many lingering myths. Readers who are hard-set on surgery are instructed about insurance coverage and costs, and how to find a qualified surgeon.
