At this point, it’s no surprise that celebrities have plastic surgery. It just kind of seems like a rite of passage for females in Hollywood at this point, especially for those in reality TV. Because plastic surgery makes everything more interesting, right? Not to mention low self-esteem and poor body image in women likely factoring in as well.
But what may be surprising to some is how young some celebs are when they make the life-changing decision to go under the knife. Some are in their early twenties, and some are just barely over 18, raising a possibly important dialogue about what kind of message this sends to young women throughout the country. Not to mention the dangers associated with going under the knife and the fact that they may have not needed it in the first place. Some women are going under the knife for reasons they claim to be medical, and that’s understandable, but the debate still rages on about those doing it solely for cosmetic benefit.
But yet America seems to be polarized on the issue. Is there actually an age too young to get plastic surgery? Who is, in fact, getting plastic surgery in their teens and twenties? Let’s have a look at some of the youngest celebrities currently active who have owned up to having plastic surgery at an age that may be just, well, too young.
12 Bristol Palin
11 Ashley Tisdale
10 Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley
If you’re unfamiliar with JWoww, you probably don’t follow the tabloids, and you probably weren’t a big fan of Jersey Shore. Now, the members of Jersey Shore aren’t quite famous for their sparking moral values and conservative nature, but JWoww’s decision to get breast implants at the age of 19 in 2004, did stir the pot a little at the time. It was thought that she might be a little young to be getting work done on her body. But she wasn’t done there. In 2014, she had more work done on them, writing on her blog “They had changed a bit…Now they are nice and bouncy!!!”
9 Ariel Winter
8 Amanda Bynes
7 Jenelle Evans
6 Dianna Agron
5 Heidi Montag
4 Iggy Azalea
3 Farrah Abraham
2 Kourtney Kardashian
It seems like we just can’t get rid of the Kardashians. They’re always in the news doing something ridiculous and over the top. A lot of it has to do with their self-image and whatnot. Life&Style did an exclusive interview with Kourtney, where she admitted to having a breast augmentation at 22 years old, while still attending college. She decided to upgrade from a B to a C-cup. She later regretted it, stating that it was just something that she couldn’t be talked out of at the time. “I just got the idea in my head one day, and that was that. There was no talking me out of it," she stated.
1 Courtney Stodden
Courtney Stodden is most well-known for marrying actor Doug Hutchinson in 2011, at the age of 16. He was 51 by the way. At the ripe, young adult age of 18, she decided to have her boobs done, going from a C-cup to double Ds. As if she wasn’t craving enough attention already, she decided to post a short film outlining the entirety of the procedure, from her trip there and even inside the operating room as they were performing the procedure, onto the internet for all to view. The end of the film features her removing her bandages, as her husband and the doctor examine her newly formed lady lumps.
