In an age of selfies and constant social media sharing, a growing number of teenagers are undergoing plastic surgery to alter their appearance. According to ASPS statistics, about 229,000 cosmetic procedures were performed on teenagers last year, though research by board-certified plastic surgeons found that very few guidelines are in place to ensure teen plastic surgeries are performed appropriately.
