Remarks: Cosmetic surgery
The Marquee: What are your thoughts on cosmetic surgery?
Hyunsung Na, 9
“For cosmetic surgery … people should do what makes them happy. If it’s a lifestyle choice for them or if it’s a decision they’ve made to better their lives and to better the enjoyment of their lives, then they should. Cosmetic surgery is good in a way.”
Dylan Tran, 10
“I think that cosmetic surgery is both a good and a bad thing. You have to be doing it for yourself. For our age… because our bodies are still developing, there’s still things that can harm you.”
Chris Junginger, 11
“For teenagers, my big problem is that science is constantly moving forward and if a teenager was to get plastic surgery at this age, in 10 or 20 years, their body might grow out of it."
Lauran Popp, teacher
“There is a lot of pain that goes along with any surgery and I can’t imagine wanting to volunteer for that... As for teenagers...[they] are very impressionable. They have self esteem issues so you don’t want that added to the already troublesome issue of elective plastic surgery.”
