          • To improve self-esteem
        • Reconstructive
          • Performed on abnormal structures of the body
          • To improve function, but may also be done to approximate a normal appearance.
    • Plastic Surgery and Teenagers
        • FDA guidelines suggest waiting until 22 years of age
        • For most surgeons, 16 or 17 is not an unreasonable age for many procedures, but each decision must be approached on a patient-by-patient basis
