Social media and greater social acceptability may be making plastic surgery more popular among teenagers, according to some experts. The number of procedures on teens doubled between 2002 and 2006, and although the total number of procedures on teens dropped in 2010, more types of procedures were performed, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Rhinoplasty is the most popular procedure, followed by gynecomastia for boys and breast surgery for girls.
