Perhaps more surprising is that many teens have the backing of their parents, some of whom have paid for cosmetic procedures as a gift for their child's birthday or for doing well in exams.

some parents want to give their children an edge over their peers: "Certain studies have found that good-looking people are more successful and have a greater income when competing with others."

it is unlikely that teens would attain long-term confidence from cosmetic procedures alone....In fact, some might "use such procedures as a crutch", and not learn suitable ways to deal with their body image issues, he added..."This may create dependence that would be very difficult to resolve as the person grows older."
