Teen Girls Opt for Breast Enlargement to Bolster Confidence and Self-esteem
Teens are perhaps the first to sport new trends to keep abreast with the times.

The latest trend among teen girls shows them embracing cosmetic surgery of the breast in a bid to enhance their looks. Many of them have gone under the knife for breast implants which they confess would serve a double purpose - enhance their sex appeal as well as perk up lost self esteem.

The trend has witnessed a three fold increase among girls below 18 who underwent breast implants between 2002 and 2003. According to data from The American Society of Plastic Surgeons, in 2002, 3,872 teens had undergone breast enlargement surgery; in 2003, the figure had risen to 11,326.

This has challenged the earlier notion about not finding too many teen patrons for such surgeries. Many teens when questioned said breast enlargement offered an easy solution to their problems of low self esteem. This method is catching up as a quick remedy to overcome self consciousness and depression, they said.

Upon closer look, such teens are members of a growing number of groups in social networking sites that offer a platform to discuss cosmetic surgery and its options, seek support and advice and even put up pictures if desired.

I just wanted to call to leave a testimony because I tried other products in the past to try to enhance the size of my breasts and none of them have worked.
I've used pills, creams and other gums and none of them have worked until I came across an ad on the internet for Zoft Breast Gum and I decided to give it another try to see what happened and fortunately after using it for a little bit over a month my breast size increased an inch and I thought it was due to when you have your menstruation, your breast size gets bigger so I decided to wait a little bit afterwards to see if the size was still the same and it was still measuring an increase in 1 inch. I purchased this product from http://www.onestoptreatment.com.
