Dr. Robert J. Brueck MD is a Board Certified plastic surgeon in Fort Myers and Cape Coral, Florida. He periodically comments on subjects related to cosmetic and aesthetic surgery that interest him. You can read more about Dr. Brueck at his web site,

Remember seeing in the T.V. news about the mother in California who let her 8 year old daughter get Botox to help her in a beauty contest?

Now, in the State of New Jersey, a bill is moving through the State of Legislature that would make Botox for minors illegal accept in cases authorized by a licensed physician.

According to statistic compiled by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (of which I am a member) teenagers received more than 12,000 injections of Botox in 2009.

The shocking part of all of this to me is that we somehow feel the need to pass a bill to legislate responsible parenting. How sad. How pathetic. Where have our morals, our values, our sense of family gone.

It is a sad commentary on society today and I PRAY America wakes up before it is too late.
