Want to look just like a celebrity or permanently fix something on your body that you consider a flaw? A new report by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery finds that cosmetic surgeries are on the rise, but not for teens.

The most popular reason teens did go under the knife was for rhinoplasty, or correcting the nose. Other popular procedures for those under 18 include chin augmentation -- which is often done along with rhinoplasty to create an even look on the face -- breast reduction and correcting breast asymmetry.

In 2009, 203,308 procedures were performed on minors. That's just two percent of the whole number of procedures done that year. What are teens increasingly deciding against? Lip enhancement. It declined from 2,504 in 1997 to 1,559 last year.

As for non-surgical procedures, the most common among teens are laser hair removal and chemical peels. What do you think about teens having plastic surgery? Should that even be legal? Should only non-surgical procedures be allowed?
