Breast Augmentation – Is it Safe For Teenagers?
Being a teenager is difficult, particularly in this media-driven world of perfection. The pressure that teens put on themselves and that are perceived by their peers is intense. As a result, many teens turn to plastic surgery to correct flaws, imagined or real. Breast augmentation is one of the procedures popular among teen-age girls. Popular or not, is it safe for teen-age girls to get breast implants?
Surgery is surgery, whether it is cosmetic or not, and with surgery comes risk. Breast augmentation performed on teenagers is not different. Just because she is young and healthy doesn’t mean she won’t have a reaction to the anesthesia or experience infection and other complications after the surgery.
