Remember the days when we used to worry about getting new kicks and gear to look our best for our first day back to school?
Well, things have changed, and the new generation is opting for a different kind of makeover as they get ready to hit the books again this fall. Thousands of teens will be returning to school this year with brand new assets and fuller pouts, with books most likely being the last thing on their minds.
According to the NY Daily News:
About 64,000 teens get plastic surgery each year, and most of that work is done over summer vacation to allow enough time to recover or simply to remain in hiding.
Dr. Matthew Schulman, a New York City plastic surgeon who gets at least 10 emails a week from teenagers asking for Kylie Jenner-esque lips, said:
Between social media and reality television, nobody thinks twice about plastic surgery anymore, and it trickles down to the teens.
Celebrities such as Kylie and Iggy Azalea have been the source of inspiration for many teenagers who are going under the knife. To read about other reasons more teens have decided to go under the knife, click here.
