I don't really care what people do. Some people may have flaws real or perceived that they want "fixed". I have no problem with that.

If it gets out of control that can be unfortunate, and that is probably triggered by underlying mental problems. So rigorous screening should be done before plastic surgeons accept patients. I have no idea what the state of that is.

Personally, I would never do it. I don't think I'm the best looking person, but I can't picture any scenario plastic surgery doesn't jack up my face.

agree with the answer above. It's a private matter

I don't really have any problem with it per-say, but a fair amount of plastic surgery is due to the pressures of society. My psychology professor once asked a question that made me think: Why are blonde's typically considered more beautiful than others?

I'll let you think on that one.

Much of how we perceive things is because we're groomed that way. Some time back there were some articles about the explosion of plastic surgery in South Korea as well (see http://www.businessinsider.com/south-korea-is-the-plastic-surgery-capital-of-the-world-2015-9 ). People that are more attractive tend to feel more confidence in themselves and, in places like South Korea, you're more likely to get a job. It shouldn't be this way, but again, this is a result of the influence society has on the individual.

While we may think that this isn't the case over in the US of A, bias's do exist and have been proven to exist over time. Your appearance shouldn't factor in to your ability to gain employment, but in certain career fields (generally public facing) this is often the case. And then if you bring Hollywood into the equation, well that speaks for itself. People idolize Hollywood stars and follow their every post on social media, every news article, every movie, tv show or music video... for years. The pressure that people, and their peers, put on them must certainly take its toll.

When you really look at it, it's very easy to see why plastic surgery has become more widely used over the years. Going back to the original question, I don't believe there's anything wrong with using plastic surgery - after all, it's not hurting anyone but yourself - but there may be long-term effects on people's mental states as a result of the very real pressures and influences of society.

Eh, I'd never get it done for cosmetic purposes, that just seems like a waste of money to me. I'm not exactly the prettiest face around, but I'm not too bothered by my facial appearance at the moment.
But hey, that shouldn't stop others from doing it. You do you.

If I had the money, I would do as much plastic surgery as my body could humanly take. For personal reasons I have always hated my face and wanted the chance to redo everything from top to bottom.

In my opinion

People who don't like plastic surgery just don't understand it.

It has a range of benefits from improving self confidence which results in a happier you. The only thing is do your research on what, who, where, how. Its fairly expensive, but it'll pay off. My sister was always pretty and she had ears that stuck out a little bit. She got surgery and now you can't see it as a "Flaw".

but i'm sure you look good as it is

If I had the money, I would fix some of the flaws on my face.

Their money, their body. My mom had one to get her body back to what it used to be after my lil sister was born, and it opened my eyes regarding plastic surgery. I don't know the circumstances of the person doing the surgery, why should I judge them. It's not a decision to do lightly since it's not easily reversible (if reversible), but it's their choice.
