She must be rich to spend that much on surgery alone

Here I thought I was insecure about my appearance. That is enough money to save a lot of people. I suppose she didn't care too much, though? Well being addicted to this sort of thing is obvious. Sort like the twit that injected cooking oil into her face.

Money-wise. A waste -_- Why can't people just like how they look? I mean, I'm not saying I'm drop dead gorgeous, I have my insecurities too, but will I go so low to rearrange my face and body? Imma die anyways so no point in there.

I've actualy had cosmetic surgery, so I suppose I'm qualified to comment on this. The reasoning behind mine was to get rid of subcutaneous scar tissue build up from thirty years of multiple daily required insulin injections into my upper arms, thighs, stomach and sides. The effects worked for a while, but since I can't stop taking the injections, the scar tissue builds back up. The only recourse is to continue to try to get rid of it via surgery. Since I don't have the kind of disposable income that would allow me to schedule the procedure to get rid of it every two years, one becomes resigned to living with the evidence of one's illness.

As far as this woman is concerned, I can't say that I really fault her in her pursuit of beauty, or at least, of a more youthful appearance. The pressure on women in our world to look forever young, forever beautiful and forever 'perfect' is incredibly intense and it never, ever goes away. Take a look at how our society rewards people, not for what they give to other, not for what they contribute intellectually to the world, but for how they appear. Beauty tends to be rewarded with positive reactions from strangers, job offers for higher pay, promotions in the workplace, a better chance at marrying 'up' on the social ladder and with more opportunities in general. Studies have proven, time and time again, that average to less-tahn-average-looking women, or women who are overweight, are the least likely to get a promotion within a corporation, no matter the quality of their work. The same holds true for looking 'old', a situation which has come sharply into focus during this last recession. Our society no longer rewards age with respect, nor does it (or has ever) rewarded inner beauty with anything other than an 'oh, that's nice' sort of backhanded compliment. Of course, an outwardly beautiful person can squander the initial goodwill their looks generate in others by acting like a complete jackass, or a drunken bimbo, or a violently brutish thug, but those actions are also more likely to be forgiven if the person in question is good-looking. As Leo Tolstoy once pointed out, "It is amazing how complete is the delusion that beauty is goodness."

I will say that the results of her 52 surgeries look less 'plastic' than I would expect, but then cosmetic surgery has come quite far in the last thirty years. It is her money to spend as she pleases and I have no doubt that she will probably spend much more as the years go on to try to push back against the aging process. However, while she might try to outrun the wrinkles, sags and whatnot that come with age, she won't be able to outrun the inevitable; we all die, without exception, no matter how pretty or ugly we might be. I suppose that, given this knowledge, I would personally rather spend the sort of money she's dropped on her appearance and have adventures with it before I cease to be, or donate some of it to finding a cure for the illness that has plagued me since childhood. I look at her pre-surgery pictures and I can tell you, I would give anything to have had her so-called 'flawed' body, for the sole reason that it it functioned properly, that it didn't require six to seven shots of insulin a day to keep it alive and free of complications like blindness, kidney failure, nerve damage and so on.

I think she looks pretty even if it wasn't the face she was born with, and although I wouldn't want it for myself (seems like a lot of work just to look like a different person,) I think it's fine as long as SHE believes it was worth it. It's no one's place to judge.

plastic surgery, yay

What a waste of money. I've had plastic surgery but it was for repairs after major surgery, she was fine to begin with and that just makes me sad. I'm only for it if its for repairs, and its a fantastic procedure in that sense, barely even bothered by the scar now. Otherwise, why? Just why?
