A growing trend of teens receiving plastic surgery caught the attention of CBS in Miami. Nationwide in 2008 alone over 300,000 teens underwent plastic surgery. And although three thousand of which were breast augmentations on women 18 years and younger, that number only represents 0.9% of the total breast augmentations in 2009. It is also important to note that out of the 300,000 procedures on teens, not all of them were for cosmetic reasons. Functional problems, such as a deviated septum, are also included in that statistic.
