In recent years, young people’s interest in plastic surgery has increased in many countries of the world, including Turkey. Ear Nose and Throat Specialist Op. Dr. Timur Batmaz stated that the aesthetic age has decreased to 16 for girls and 17 for boys, and that the Z generation has a high demand for aesthetics.
Stating that the aesthetic age was in the twenties before, and now it has decreased to 16, Otorhinolaryngology Specialist Op. Dr. Timur Batmaz, “in aesthetic girls 16,in men 17 decreased to . Generation Z consumes very fast, they use social media very well, they are very interested in technology, they have easy access to everything and they get bored with everything very quickly. As a result, they want to change their external views as soon as possible.” said.
Buoyant; “Generation Z first corrects their own face and eyes in the virtual environment by using filters on social media, and after a while, they go in search of a doctor to turn into the person they correct. Because of this, young people are turning to plastic surgery with the truth. The most common of these is rhinoplasty, which is one of the operations performed all over the world. But this situation becomes a nightmare for families. As soon as the family says “no”, mental problems begin. The Z generation could not go to school during the pandemic, and the demand for aesthetics increased even more when one of the things they concentrated on in the house was a mirror glutton and social media. On the other hand, legally, no one under the age of 18 can decide alone and have an operation. The parents definitely need to show their willingness to have this surgery.” said.
