More than 160,000 U.S. children underwent cosmetic surgery in 2008, according to a recent study. In 2008, cosmetic interventions such as breast augmentation, liposuction, Botox injections, hair removal, birthmark removal or "Asian eye surgery" were performed in 160,283 U.S. residents under the age of 19. Due to the economic recession, this actually represented a drop from the 2007 figure of 205,119, but was still higher than the 2006 figure of 145,094.

In addition, modern parents are more willing than ever to consider the procedure for their kids. More

But these cosmetic procedures don't come cheap. These high prices are enough for some consumers to take their business away from medical professionals, and go instead to the Web. They are "doing it themselves," ordering prescription-only products online, and injecting themselves at home. It might sound easy, but is it safe to self-inject powerful drugs obtained from a Web site? Absolutely not, according to Dr. Joel Cohen of AboutSkin Dermatology in Denver, Colo. He is one of the leading experts in the treatment of complications related to cosmetic injectables, and has published extensively on the topic. More
