Young people often feel self-conscious about their appearance if they look markedly different than their peers. Physical differences such as protruding ears, skin disorders, and male breasts often distract teens from focusing on school, sports, and socializing. Minimally invasive procedures like laser hair removal and medical skin care products can improve skin health and appearance during these formative years. And more invasive procedures can safely reshape noses, reset ears, and balance uneven breasts, allowing teens to feel more comfortable with their appearance. While the full range of adult procedures is not appropriate for younger people, qualified plastic surgeons are a tremendous resource while gathering information and seeking advice.
