ABC News reports on teenage girls who, for high school graduation gifts, get breast implants. One turned down the offer of a Jaguar, telling her parents she wanted bigger breasts instead. Four thousand girls 18 and under will have the operation this year. Some doctors and teens are repulsed by the trend. Most women who get breast implants later have to have second and third operations because the implants leak, or move. But the kids think for today, and are convinced that surgery will be the answer to their problems.
Costa Rica, just a quick plane ride away from many American cities, offers inexpensive medical care and "recovery resorts." ABC News follows three women who are having cheap cosmetic surgery there. One says, "It's so much cheaper there, I'm going to get some lipo done. And before you know it, well, I think I'll get a breast augmentation. What the heck. I'm there anyways." Will they get what they paid for?
