I just read the story about the teenager in florida
although she didn't die because she was a teenager, graduation present boob jobs are really ridiculous! these parents should really have their heads examined.
there should be ethical restraint among some of these plastic surgeons - they are doctors, after all!
18 yr olds are still growing (especially breasts) and just shouldn't get elective surgery, no matter what that does for the surgeon's financial well being.
having a nose job at 17 because the girl has a big bump or has a real cosmetic irregularity is one thing - the nose matures faster than breasts and no-one thinks that someone is ugly because they have an a or b cup.
also, boob jobs need to be redone every 10 years or so, so if you're starting at 18, you're committing that girl to 3 or 4 re-operations. that is a guarantee of scarring and unnatural appearance, as anyone who does breast surgery will admit. its one thing to be in a society with twisted morality that values big fake boobs. its much more twisted to actively participate in that process by performing these operations on young girls and subjecting them to these kinds of risks.
