New Delhi, Jan 30 (ANI): There has been an increase in the number of teenagers going for plastic surgery in Singapore.

According to the Straits Times, a check with nine plastic surgeons and aesthetic doctors showed an increase of about 30 percent in the number of clients under the age of 21 over the past five years.

Charisse underwent surgery on her eyelids when she was 18.

Her younger sister Christel followed suit when she turned 14 two years ago, reports English.news.cn.

"I was not too worried about any medical risks because I know that it is a simple procedure. Seeing my sister go through it also made me less frightened," said the younger sister.

Andrew George Tay, a plastic surgeon at Novena Medical Center, attributed the trend to greater awareness of plastic surgery.

"With the Internet, information about various procedures is easily available. The youth are also influenced by the media.

When they see celebrities with enhanced features, they want the same," he said. (ANI)
