Fino a che punto un medico può dire di si ad interventi atti a modificare in modo così radicale ed irreversibile la persona umana?
Soprattutto parlando giovani, come è possibile stabilire con certezza che con il nuovo sembiante non avrà mai problemi e che mai tanta diversità - che certamente non passerà mai inosservata - gli creeranno conflitti a livello psicologico?
E al livello della salute, cosa potrebbero comportare tutte queste manipolazioni?
Non c'è dubbio sul fatto che questo ragazzo conquisterà tutte le prime pagine dei giornali - e già lo fa - e che sarà sulla bocca e negli occhi di tutti, ma quali potranno essere le conseguenze quando il mondo deciderà di metterlo nel dimenticatoio?
Risponde il Dottor Luigi Leo, medico oncologo presso l'ospedale Monaldi di Napoli
"Ogni intervento che esula dall'ordinario, tipo mastoplastica additiva in donna con piccolo volume mammario, dovrebbe essere sempre valutato multidimensionalmente, anche dallo psicologo.
L'etica che sottende la accettazione e la indicazione di un intervento di chirurgia estetica da parte della medicina ufficiale muta rapidamente, anche in ragione di interessi della categoria.
Se si parla con i chirurghi estetici raccontano di qualità di vita psicologica e accettazione del proprio corpo e tante cose ancora, per cui si autodissolvono quando commettono vere e proprie nefandezze - tipo rifare un seno taglia 10 - .
Ovviamente io dissento ma è un giudizio meramente personale. L'etica della collettività e l'etica medica vanno in opposta direzione: il mercato della chirurgia e medicina estetica non conosce crisi, i fatturati sono più 30% l'anno'.
Vinny Ohh, il giovane che vuole sembrare un alieno: il parere di un medico Alessandra Verzera 10 marzo 2017
Vinny Ohh, 22, from Los Angeles in California, has so far spent $50,000 (£40,000) on over 110 procedures to transform into a 'genderless' extra-terrestrial, and told how he hopes to have the surgery in Thailand or Sweden.
But those watching the appearance - via a video link 'live from outer space' - couldn't understand the makeup artist's desire for such a drastic change, with one viewer tweeting that Vinny was in need of 'professional help'.
But Vinny, who has said he is neither male nor female but 'a hybrid', said he saw himself raising a family in the future and that he didn't 'need sexual organs to do so'.
'What sort of surgeon would actually perform this? Absolute joke,' one viewer posted, while another said: 'He/she should be spending this money on psychiatric help not weird surgery.'
Convinced he won't have any regrets about the life-altering procedure, Vinny told presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield: 'I do not see myself having regrets when I am 70.
'I see myself adopting kids and raising them, that's totally fine. I don't need sexual organs to do so.'
Vinny explained that he would not be able to get the surgery in America as there are 'so many rules', and was planning to meet with two doctors in Sweden and one in Thailand to discuss his options.
He believes he is neither male nor female, and says his extreme look is a way to mirror how he feels inside.
Vinny's numerous surgeries started with lip fillers at the age of 17, and he then went on to have two rhinoplasties, multiple cheek and brow bone fillers and more.
The part-time model also wears large blackened contact lenses, talon-like nails, and dyes his hair outlandish shades.
Now he plans to fork out another $160,000 (£130,000) on surgery to have his genitalia, nipples and bellybutton removed.
Vinny said previously: 'I want to be a sexless alien being, I want my outside to reflect how I feel on the inside.
'The overall image I want to do is an alien. I want to be a hybrid, not male or female.
'I've wanted to be sexless and genderless since I was 17, I've been going to doctors to see if it's possible but had no luck.
'I don't want people to think I'm trying to change into a woman. I could live without sexual organs so why should I have a penis or a vagina.
Vinny embarked on having cosmetic procedures after feeling like an outcast while growing up.
Vinny is set to appear on The Plastics of Hollywood, a show that will house real life plastic surgery addicts together in attempts to nurture their talent.
The TV show, which is set to be released in America, will follow a talent agency that tries to help them achieve fame without relying on their looks.

An eight-year-old drag queen is taking the scene by storm after discovering the practice at the age of seven.
Montreal mini queen Nemis Quinn Mélançon Golden has been catching the eyes of drag artists across the globe since his alter-ego Lactatia appeared onstage with Ru Paul's Drag Race star Bianca del Rio on her Werq the World drag tour earlier this summer.
In a new video for Elle.com, Nemis reveals that he has been 'wearing my sister's tutus since I was like three or four.'
'I think I've had Lactatia inside of me since I was born,' he adds. 'And that's why I love that song Born This Way.'
Drag, Nemis says, 'makes me feel very happy, like I am accepted.'
Nemis' mother Jessica explains that her little boy was asking for her to put make-up on him from the age of two - and he just grew to love the art of it.
'We just want our kids to express themselves however they see fit,' she says. 'As long as they are respectful and nice people, then I really don't care!'
But then there was a turning point soon after Nemis turned seven - when he was introduced to Ru Paul's Drag Race for the first time.
'I love them because they do what they want to do and they aren't afraid to do it,' he says of the queens.
Soon enough, the confident eight-year-old was taking vogueing lessons and cultivating his stage persona: Lactatia.
It was Nemis' 14-year-old sister, Kashmyr Luna Higgins, who came up with the name. His mom Jessica also helps him with the make-up.
The Elle clip sees the little boy primped and wigged to turn into Lactatia, before meeting a surprise guest: The drag queen Vivacious from season six of RuPaul's Drag Race.
After offering the tiny queen some tips, Lactatia struts her stuff for the older drag artist, who couldn't be more impressed.
'By the time you turn 12, you are going to be a weapon of mass devastation,' says Vivacious.
