A recent report shows that China ranks as one of the top countries for the number of people getting plastic surgery. But the country has yet to have a national law or regulation on the age limit and category of plastic surgery.

Guangzhou has become the first citry in the country to regulate this industry as the city prohibits juveniles from getting any kind of plastic surgery or tattoo for cosmetic reasons. Many other countries have strict regulations on this issue.

In Italy, plastic surgeons risk paying fines of 20, 000 euros and suspension of work for three months if they are caught doing plastic surgery on juveniles.

The laws of the US, Germany and South Korea all require a legal guardians’ informed consent before surgery on a minor. South Korea and Thailand also ask that parents accompany them during surgery.
