It's almost a given that teens will be unhappy with the way they look. It's the age of being self-conscious and feeling peer pressure to look a certain way.Cosmetic procedures might seem like a "quick fix" to become more popular. Or teens may see a parent getting a face lift, or their favorite Hollywood star with collagen-enhanced lips. Sometimes, the parent is the one who is unhappy with how the teen looks. The parent may even drive the child's decision to have surgery. Other parents may "treat" their teenagers to surgery as a birthday or graduation gift. Is it really safe?
