Plastic surgery is a surgical specialty involving the restoration, reconstruction, or alteration of the human body. It can be divided into two main categories: reconstructive surgery and cosmetic surgery. Reconstructive surgery includes craniofacial surgery, hand surgery, microsurgery, and the treatment of burns.
Plastic surgery is growing in popularity each year, and women are no longer the only people having cosmetic surgery. Men are contributing to the boom in procedures, with the most popular surgery being rhinoplasties.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, almost 18 million people underwent surgical and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures in the United States in 2018. This total means that there were almost a quarter of a million more procedures in 2018 than in 2017.
There are no specific laws in the United States that prevent teenagers from getting cosmetic surgery; however, parental consent is required for patients under the age of 18.
In instances like liposuction, t’s important to recognise upfront that a great majority of cosmetic surgeons will recommend that patients are at least 18 years old to undergo the procedure; however, there are special instances in which younger people are considered for the liposuction, and it will depend on the surgeon and the teen’s individual circumstances.
Cosmetic procedures were first performed around the 16th century to fix disfigurements, and around 200 years ago, in 1817, the first cosmetic surgery was performed by John Peter Mettauer, who performed the first cleft palette operation, with instruments he created himself.
In 1962 Timmie Jean Lindsey became the first woman in the world to receive a breast enlargement using silicone implants.
There’s a huge variety of procedures trans people can choose to have, depending on their budget, and the look they are going for. One of the most common surgeries for transgender females is genital reconstruction (a vaginoplasty). Other common surgeries include facial reconstruction (tracheal shaves, eyebrow/general face lifts, and lip and cheek implants), and breast augmentation.
Commonly for trans men, double mastectomies (removal of both breasts) are very popular, as is genital reconstruction, and facial reconstruction, such as creating a stronger jawline through surgery.
