Cosmetic surgery a trend among boys
    2018-07-20  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

MORE teenage boys are willing to go under the knife as cosmetic surgery has gained traction among youngsters in recent years, the Shenzhen Evening News reported Tuesday.

The reporter from the newspaper found that the number of boys getting plastic surgery has shown a growing trend, and that many parents have taken the initiative to accompany their children to cosmetic hospitals.

A woman identified as Li Ai has planned to let her son get a facelift before he goes abroad to study. She accompanied her son for a consultation at a cosmetic hospital June 29.

According to Li’s son, he isn’t opposed to cosmetic surgery and is willing to become more handsome if the operation is not painful.

“The pursuit of beauty is a spontaneous feeling. My son is doing well in his studies. Isn’t it a bonus for him if he is good at school, talented and handsome?” said Li.

She hopes her son’s nose will become more prominent and his eyes will be bigger. As for the cost of the surgeries, Li thinks tens of thousands of yuan is acceptable.

Another boy identified as Xiaopeng has also visited a number of cosmetic hospitals in Shenzhen seeking advice. He is planning to have a double eyelid operation over the summer vacation.

“Boys are also very fond of becoming more beautiful nowadays. Many of my friends have begun to use facial masks,” said Xiaopeng. According to him, beauty is pursued by everyone, including both men and women.

According to Shenzhen Peng’ai Hospital, July and August are the peak periods for a plastic surgery, at which time the number of plastic surgeries in the hospital increases by 10 to 20 percent. The customers are mainly students.

It is reported that the most popular cosmetic surgeries are eye and nose surgeries. A double eyelid surgery costs between 5,000 yuan (US$738.53) and 10,000 yuan, while a nose job ranges from 20,000 to 70,000 yuan, according to different conditions.

In view of the trend, Wang Qingguo, executive president of the Shenzhen Education Training Association, believes that it is not necessary for teenagers to have cosmetic surgery if they don’t have obvious facial defects.

“It actually sends a misleading message to young people, that appearance is more important than other qualities. Every person has his own characteristics,” Wang said.

He believes that there are risks behind every cosmetic surgery. Students should enrich themselves with knowledge instead of blindly pursuing a better appearance. Boys should also focus on improving their knowledge and should foster social and familial responsibilities. (Zhang Yu)
