If you’re the parent of a teenager or child who is being bullied because they are overweight or perceived as unattractive to their peers, would you let them get plastic surgery to fix their flaws? An alarming trend that has been covered in the media lately is the rise of plastic surgery procedures in teens and “tweens” – those who are approaching their teenage years. Children and teens as young as seven years old are reportedly going under the knife to stop bullying at school. Is this plastic surgery gone too far?
Since 2007, Heidi Montag has been in the media spotlight about her series of plastic surgery procedures. The MTV reality star made news when she had a whopping ten plastic surgery procedures performed in a single day. Montag is now only 24 years old, but began her plastic surgery obsession well before the ripe young age of 21. Before she turned 21, the starlet had already had breast augmentation to increase her cup size from an A-cup to a C-cup, collagen lip injections to enhance her lips, and a nose job to create a more sculpted and delicate-looking nose.

In a recent episode of Glee, the team got busy working on their dance moves for Mister Schue’s Rump-Shakin’ Booty Camp but Finn managed to hit Rachel in the face, breaking her nose. The doctor treating Rachel suggested that this recent event would be the perfect opportunity for the star to get a nose job (officially known as the rhinoplasty procedure). Nose jobs are designed to repair or realign the deviated septum, or asymmetry of the nose. Finn is against the idea of Rachel getting a nose job, but this Glee star thinks the procedure may help her acting career and make her more marketable.

Butt contouring has been compared to sculpting with the cosmetic surgeon or board-certified plastic surgeon in the role of the artist. Since the procedure is designed to dramatically change the profile of the buttocks gradually over time, the doctor has to have an acute three-dimensional sense of female proportions.
