It is studied that there are plastic surgery age limits depending on the body area. Today, we’ll find out what those age ranges are.
Eye surgeries are the most common type of plastic surgery done among young people as well. Since eyes have the fastest growth rate among the facial areas, it is possible to have it done at an early age compared to other types of plastic surgeries. Usually the growth stops at an age of 11~12, so it is safest to perform eye surgeries after 13 years old when all development has stopped already.
For nose job cases, there are risks of deviation and humped nose if the surgery is performed before development. Rhinoplasty should be avoided before the age of 16.
Face contouring surgeries which deal with facial bone structure must be done after all growth has fully stopped, and if not, there is a big possibility of bone deformation as it bothers proper bone development resulting to crooked bones and deviation, and therefore, have the surgery done after the person is fully grown for safety.
Breast Surgery : For teenagers still under their development period, it is most likely that their chests will grow and transform until the age of 18 so it is recommended to be watched until then. However, teenagers with macromastia or gynecomastia, early surgery can be considered.
iposuction : Adolescence period is where cells vigorously develop themselves in numbers and sizes to form a certain body mass. However, if one hastily decides to have liposuction in this stage, the procedure can lead to body deformation. Also, the results may not be dramatic and satisfactory since the cells are still under development.
There are exceptions depending on the area, but usually, it is best to postpone the plastic surgery plan to after the age of 18 wherein the development fully stops, when no changes are to be made on the physical features. The recovery time after the surgery can also be a burden to students since it takes several days to weeks depending on the types of surgeries done.
