Botox Babies: Women in Early 20s 'Long in the Tooth'?!

You know it's a trend when it's got a catchy name. So-called "Botox babies" are young women barely out of their teens who are opting for plastic surgery.

Last year, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, people aged 19 to 34 had 427,368 Botox procedures; 100,793 laser-resurfacing treatments; 128,779 injections of hyaluronic acid (Restylane or Hylaform); 29,160 eyelid surgeries and 1,094 facelifts. Wow. That's a lot of frozen expressions.

Conventional wisdom lays blame on the host of young starlets who have pushed the plastic-surgery envelope. Heidi Montag had a complete face and body renovation at the tender age of 23. Lindsay Lohan and Hilary Duff, both in their early twenties, have been rumored to get the occasional Botox injection. 

Should parents be concerned that their teen is going to be begging for plastic surgery?

Not to worry, says "Cult of Celebrity" author Cooper Lawrence. "These women are not relatable, because most Americans at that age are not as vain as New York and Los Angeles twentysomethings are," she said.

Think women are getting plastic surgery too young? Check out the parody video.

OMG is this doctor and this mother serious?? Tummy tuck, lypo suction, breast implants at 3 yrs old??? Even the thought of discussing it is disturbing!! OMG that little girl is going to grow and change as she gets older……leave her the hell alone! Let her look the way she is going to look…………OMG the mother needs to be looked at by a psychiatrist and this doctor is far to greedy for his own good!

It’s a parody video. -That means it’s not a real consultation. The best jokes are the ones people fall for.

Getting rid of wrinkles before you have any? These women are crazy. How are they going to survive aging? You need to have something besides beauty going for you in life.
