ABSTRACT
Age is a significant factor in modifying specific needs when it comes to medical aesthetic procedures. In this review we will focus on young adults in their third decade of life and review minimally invasive aesthetic procedures other than cosmetics and cosmeceuticals. Correction of asymmetries, correction after body modifying procedures, and facial sculpturing are important issues for young adults. The implication of aesthetic medicine as part of preventive medicine is a major ethical challenge that differentiates aesthetic medicine from fashion.

f6a-ccid-4-019: Cartilage destruction after piercing due to an inflammatory reaction.

Mentions: While earlobe piercing has been socially and widely accepted for females over many decades, body piercing has not. Recently body piercing has become very popular in young adults, in particular young women. The prevalence of body piercing in the UK is 10%. Nearly half the women aged 16–24 reported having had a piercing.33 In a US survey, 14% of adults had body piercings. Body piercing was more common among women. Local medical complications were present in one-third of those with body piercings.34 The situation is comparable to other Western countries.35 Complications of these body modifying procedures often warrant medical treatment (Figures 5 and 6).
