Do you have any plans to have plastic surgery? Well, now you have to think more about your age before having plastic surgery. A member of the National Assembly from the Saenuri Party introduced a bill that keeps teenagers from having cosmetic surgery. However, this bill should not be allowed.

For one thing, the new bill does not consider new tendency of growth. These days, many teenagers have different growth development. Some kids have ‘precocious puberty’ or ‘late puberty’. It means that even though teens are a certain age which can legally have plastic surgery, their bodies are not ready to get the surgery. Or teens cannot have the surgery even though their bodies are all grown-up. Therefore, the government cannot uniformly fix the age of cosmetic surgery.

Secondly, the new bill violates civil liberties. One of the fundamental human rights is our civil liberties. People can do anything they want if it does not invade others' rights. Plastic surgery is also teenagers’ right. They exert their own rights to be prettier and the government has no right to stop this.

Finally, it is implicit regulation. Looking at other countries cosmetic surgery laws, the new bill is especially strict and implicit. The new bill says that teens who are not of age cannot have cosmetic surgery in any case, and if they do have surgery, the surgeon would be punished. However, in other countries, teens who want to get the surgery can do it after few months of consideration period and counseling.

Cosmetic surgery can fix a teenager’s self-esteem and confidence. To be more beautiful, to be prettier, teens have surgery. The government should not regulate this passion. If they worry about safety of teens, they should make surgery safer, not keep teens from surgery.
