 Many More Youngsters Opting for Cosmetic Surgery

Looks are apparently on top of the shopping list of teenagers these days as many more of them seem to be opting for cosmetic surgery.

Ajay Kashyap, Cosmetic Surgeon at Apollo Hospital, revealed that he was seeing younger patients in high numbers these days. "I have seen a huge increase in the number of cosmetic surgery cases. Four years back, I had rounded about 80 cases, but now it is 120 cases a year," he said.

The pressure to look good and thrive in friends 'circle is a trigger for this rise in the number of teens opting to go under the knife to get that perfect nose or that perfect chin.

"Youngsters these days don't mind going under the knife. All they want is the desired look. This trend catches up before the new session in college begins," Dr Kashyap agreed.

Furthermore the plethora of television channels popularizes a particular look and teens want to appear like their favorite Bollywood star or cricketer and they do not mind shelling out Rs.60, 000 and Rs.100, 000 for the same.

However experts have cautioned that it is not advisable to go for cosmetic surgery so early in life.
