Asian Children Turn to Cosmetic Surgery
New research has shown that some Asian children feel under pressure to look more like their Western counterparts and are turning to cosmetic surgery to achieve their desired look.
There has always been a lot of debate surrounding what the minimum age for elective plastic surgery should be – particularly over parents who give their teenage children permission to have cosmetic surgery, and these latest findings are likely to promote a lot more debate on the industry.
The Hastings Center Report has found that more Asian children than ever are looking to plastic surgery to make them look more Western and play up to the Hollywood ideal. Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures – with many asking for more almond shaped eyes – along with liposuction and breast enhancements. Statistics have also revealed that Asian children are more likely to resort to plastic surgery than their Western counterparts.
