The major chunk of plastic surgeries last year about 46% are performed on people of age group 35-50 years, according to American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

The plastic surgery TV shows are unduly prompting the youngsters to undergo these surgical procedures and projecting it as only way out to improve the appearance, feel a section of the American population. High expenditure is another factor youth have chosen to forego these surgical procedures. However, minimally invasive treatments, such as laser hair removal and chemical peels, are becoming popular with college students, because of its low cost and low risk.
