With “perfect” young faces covering the most popular magazines in the United States, it is hardly any wonder why self-esteem is still such an issue for teens and young adults today. From Kylie Jenner and Ashley Tisdale flaunting their enhancements, to the pressure that many young girls feel to keep up with unrealistic standards of beauty, we are left with the question of How young is too young for plastic surgery?
At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC, Dr. Benjamin Stong understands that the biology of a person’s body is an incredible component when discussing plastic surgery. Surgeons do not need to alter body parts until they are fully developed. Because every teen and adolescent reaches maturity at different ages, there is no set age as to when a plastic surgery procedure should be performed. Rhinoplasty, for example, has to wait until the mid-face skeleton has matured. If the bones are still growing, they will change the effect that the surgery had on a patient’s face.
All patients who wish to have any type of plastic surgery at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC mush have an initial consultation before a procedure is scheduled. Every patient’s desires are listened to thoroughly, and the correct recommendation will be made for the most optimal results. For those who are younger than 18, the answer is generally to wait. Dr. Stong is a Fellowship trained double board certified facial plastic surgeon that is committed to providing the highest level of service to every patient. Understanding that age plays a huge role in those who are young means that Dr. Stong is committed to putting the best interests of his patients first.
If you are a young adult who wishes to have a facial plastic surgery procedure, a consultation can be scheduled with your parents and Dr. Stong to discuss how waiting may actually be the best case scenario, or to make plans once your body is developmentally ready.
