Statistics show that more than 90 percent of girls, aged 15-17, want to change at least one aspect of their physical appearance, and nearly a quarter of these girls would consider undergoing plastic surgery. According to a report by the child advocacy group “Common Sense Media”, they revealed that more than half of girls as young as 6 to 8 think their ideal weight is thinner than their current size. In a study done by black activist Kenneth Clark, he put two identical dolls in front of black children, one dark-skinned and the other white-skinned and when asked which they preferred, almost all chose the white doll. These results capture the negative effects society’s narrowly defined beauty ideals are having on women and girls. Along with body
The media portrays the average person as flawless, thin, tall, and beautiful. They advertise products that can help a person achieve what they call “perfection.” They slap photos all over the place, on billboards, magazines, and ads, showing us what a “real” person looks like. The media brainwashes us into believing that we need to meet their standards in order to achieve ultimate beauty and should we stray from the path they pave, we will not be considered beautiful. Our society places too much emphasis on our appearances, forcing many to undergo drastic changes to become “beautiful.” Many people begin to develop issues concerning their body and image. Teenagers, especially, feel the need to conform to society's view of the perfect body. They feel the need to have flawless skin, to be thin, to be tall, and to be perfect. They don't understand
Dystopian society, a community in which it is the opposite of a utopian society. A utopian society is a perfect place for all people. There are many examples of both these in all sorts of places. Just like in Fahrenheit 451, 2081, and Uglies.There are many examples of dystopian societies in books, films, and many other sources of presentations.

The body image of a teen in the U.S. is overweight or you don’t look like a model. When teens who are buying a prom dress, they want something that fits tight and shape to their body. Then they don’t want to have curves, but you can’t hid what you have. Most of the operations cost $40,000, and wow that’s a lot. A fact that might surprise you, in 2009 there were 12.5 million surgeries and that cost $10 million all together. They estimated that it cost $800 per person. Teens don’t mature fast enough to know what they want. There are people that think plastic surgery is good, most of those people around the world are the ones who don’t like how they look or just think beauty is what people see. To me beauty is only skin deep. Anyone who doesn’t think beauty is skin deep are selfies and only care about themselves. Teens need to think through the risks that can happen before proceeding. The side effects could be getting burnt, being in pain, or infections. As I mentioned before teens need to think about the risks before proceeding. (Krishnan,
Melanie Griffith is a well-known American Actress who was born in 9th August in 1957. This Golden Globe winner actress was naturally pretty and beautiful. But, her plastic surgery went wrong and as a result, instead of adding beauty the plastic surgery has snatched away her natural beauty. In the context of Hollywood, we can see most of the celebrities go under the knife after a certain age to keep up the gorgeous and young look of them.

15. Should teens be allowed to get plastic surgery without parental consent? This is a tough question. On one hand, the surgery might be pointless and in spur of the moment because the teen wants to look “perfect”. Some parents really do want the best for their kids and they know whether a certain surgery is necessary or not. On the other hand, there may be an instance where a teen is extremely insecure about their appearance and they’ve been bullied about it. The parents love their child and don’t see anything wrong. They might not even know about the bullying or even if their kid was insecure at
Plastic surgery is the rigorous medical process of altering the human body through means of reconstruction, the removal of tissue, and the addition of tissue for cosmetic purposes. People see it every day and do not even question it. People’s faces and bodies are augmented in ways that humanity sees so regularly that viewers have become blind to it. Seeing faces and bodies perfectly sculpted by knives for sharp cheekbones, fuller lips, larger breasts, and a slimmer waist has tricked society into forgetting what the average person actually looks like. Consumers have become so blind to this constant fake image that humanity does not notice the difference until an unaltered, natural image is forced down our throats. This concept is present in the novel Brave New World,
Today plastic surgery is being embraced by the millions and highly looked upon. Advertisements and media incorporated young, beautiful women to sell the product with fake and flawless women in advertisements, an ideal body is created by the minds of viewers. This causes viewers to do as much as possible involving plastic surgery, to look like the models. For Instance, in 2015 more than 13.5 million women went under the knife by surgeons certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, says the American Society of Plastic Surgeons statistics. The five most popular invasive surgical procedures for women in 2015 were liposuction, breast augmentation, tummy tucks, eyelid surgery and breast lift (ASPS statistics). Also, cosmetic procedures have increased by 39% over the past ﬁve years (from 2011) with surgical procedures up 17% and nonsurgical procedures up 44%(ASPS statistics). It shows that young women are willing to put themselves in danger because they feel the need to meet society's expectations of beauty. When going into cosmetic surgery, there is a risk of death or side effects that people are aware of, but still undergo the procedure. All because we live in a world where first impressions are made by how we look and thanks to magazines advertisements they set the “ideal” look for us and we all try to reach that look no matter how it

Young adults who want to have plastic surgery often have a different intention and goal than adults. They decide to have plastic surgery to improve any physical features they feel are troublesome or imperfect. If these imperfections were left uncorrected, they could affect the teen later in life. Teens should be allowed to have corrective cosmetic surgery, because it can help improve self-confidence and self-esteem and it can help medically.
The song, Scars to Your Beautiful written by Alessia Caracciolo, speaks to the very challenge every young girl experiences by wanting to be seen as beautiful. What is more, the song contrasts the lengths women will go to in order to make themselves appear more beautiful, but perhaps the line “you should know, you’re beautiful the way you are” is the most profound statement for this generation. According to Peta Stapleton, Gabrielle J. Crighton, Brett Carter, and Aileen Pidgeon (2017), body dissatisfaction is defined as “dysfunctional, negative thoughts and feelings pertaining to one’s weight and shape.” Specifically, Kathleen Berger (2014) states, “Many adolescents obsess about being too short or too tall, too wide in the hips or too narrow

Don 't judge people by what they did. Not because they take plastic surgery so will you judge them that they are not contented in their life, maybe yes, it 's partly true but not almost. All people have reason for what they doing. Nowadays, the problem in people is they didn 't want to listen to explanation they just want to judge and contented for what they see.
