That and more often than not insecurity is what makes them go for it, and people who're are insecure about their appearance won't just stop because one part of them has changed. It could end up leading to addiction...
Though in all fairness, is it really MY business what people spend their hard earned cash on?


gud point! :3 now y didnt i thnk of tht xD

If it gives a person more confidence and self-worth, I'm all for it. People are so judgmental just because someone chooses to change how he/she looks. There's already so many factors in our life that ultimately changes how people look physically; what's one more to the pool?

The only real downside to plastic surgery are people who don't know when to stop. Sure, the first minor plastic surgery may fix that one flaw in your look and make you prettier, but taking plastic surgery to an extreme makes you look like a freak.

it depends i think
like with me i won't do it no matter what it hurts A LOT so no way
but if it can make a person happier or if someone can have a better life with it
like physically injured in accident or something
then its oki
but truthfully u have to feel content with what u have
u are the 1st one to have to accept urself so others can accept u too

doesn't matter to me....... as long as that person stays the same......

No and yes. No, because as long as only the physical parts of your body are being changed then why not having plastic surgery esp. when you have the money. Yes because i think its always the cause of people's narcissism.

since plastic surgery became readily available in the uk the number of ugly people going under the knife to become ugly people with huge boobs has sky rocketed. the reason? because in its infinite wisdom the british government has decided that it is cheaper to provide surgery than mental health for all the crazy people! how fucked up is that!

Meh, do what they want. I totally understand for when say, someone has lost a whole lot of weight and needs their skin fixed to suit it. And I get it when someone has had a major injury and needs their face reconstructed. I guess I get it if they are just being vein too, but there are some serious risks. I honestly would not trust a doctor to mess around with my face like that. Or other body part.

If people are not so happy about their appearance and if they really want to have plastic surgery then I guess it's okay. Seriously I know alot of people who are not happy about their appearances, they overreact so much and they like stress alot and cry alot. So if it can help them then why not.

if theyre willing to shoulder the risk and bear the pain to be more attractive, more power to them. they're not hurting anyone.
i dont think its tragic or pathetic either.

Lemme say one thing. Most nosejobs make you look artificial, which obviously looks like shit.

If someone got into a horrible crash or has down syndrome then I approve of such surgery.


yep I agree ^^

But overall getting surgery to yourself even though you're already pretty enough is just wrong. It doesn't make you look prettier, it just makes you look fake.

Hm... plastic surgey is another form of dis - ease. Some people wanna be skinny, some wanna have more weight, others wanna be darker or lighter, men wanna be women while women wanna be men. Its a cycle of people being dis - ease with themselves which Im pretty sure people can see disease in it but when you break it down to "dis" and "ease" it explains it all. People are not content with themselves. Now Im not against it, people have a right to do what they want to their bodies and what makes them feel complete more power to them but its not for me. I learned a long time that my appearance isn't who I am as a person, its only part of it and has a little part. Love yourself and open your mind. Don't folllow the rules, look at things differently, screw the status - quo and be yourself.

Yes.
That means you really care about your outer appearance that much that you want to modify them.

People can do whatever they want with there bodies, I don't care. It's theirs anyway and who are we to object what they want. But for me, plastic surguries are big turn offs.
