These are assumptions. It's not always about "insecure people who don't love themselves"... for example in South Korea, it is much easier for women to get a job based on their physical attraction. Not just South Korea, but everywhere around the world. Being good looking is an advantage in the job market.

Not only jobs, but being beautiful in a lot of cultures makes people treat you differently. As fucked up as it is, this is the world we live in. So for you two to automatically judge people without thinking about some of the reasons, makes you two some judgmental assholes.

But we're in America ( or atleast I think those two are too) , we're not talking about South Korea or any other country. Lol

If you have to resort to calling people assholes then I am assuming you are just as "bad" as them. Not everything has to have cursing involved be a mature adult or teenager or whatever you are & be respectful. Bye

I believe it's to do with technology.
beauty is always about two things: fertility and a display of wealth.
cosmetic surgery attempts to do both by making people look younger and I think the artificial look it deliberate for some as a sow of being able to afford the latest in fashion.
There are well knows cases of peoples that live in more primitive conditions that see obesity and sharpened teeth as being able to afford to eat well or purely because they can afford the procedure. This isn't a case of "To each their own." it's culture.
Then again mabe they don't like the look of the human form and try to change into something else, for comparison anime chicks look like aliens.

I think it all depends on the cosmetic surgery and the person. Why are you getting cosmetic surgery done? What do you hope to accomplish from it?

Here's random examples: Did you recently lose over 100 pounds and have some skin flaps you want removed? Do you have extensive risk of cancer in your family and would prefer a double mastectomy and implants to feel safer? Have you been shamelessly mocked for some physical characteristics throughout childhood that as an adult you want removed?

I had minor plastic surgery before - a few moles removed, but also otoplasty. I was born without the upper ridges in my ears and I was mocked relentlessly as a child for my ears. I had the surgery to add in the ridges and which in turn made the ears look smaller and kept closer to my head. Some 20 years later, I don't regret the surgery.

We all have our own issues to deal with and our own reasons for cosmetic surgery. I'm not going to assume and judge you for it.

If it makes you feel good about yourself, sure, go for it. Don't expect me to call it pretty tho.

And plastic surgeons should be held to higher standarts, because currently they are willing to cut anyone opne, unless there is 95% chance of theym immidiatelly dying as a result.

In the case of excess skin removal this is reconstructive surgery so is implants after a mastectomy. or For congenital deformities it's constructive surgery.

Personally I won't wish for cosmetic surgery to change breast size unless I happen to have had some accident or illness that destroyed my breasts.

Wouldn't that apply to you as well since you're judging us?

I dunno about plastic surgery to get implants, or for smaller waists, but I a lot about getting plastic surgery for cosmetic purposes, on the face. I honestly have nothing against it. Don't judge a book by it's cover right? So you shouldn't really care if someone gets plastic surgery or not. For example, small surgeries like double eyelids and nose jobs aren't that big, and you shouldn't really care about it. Some people get plastic surgery for other reasons (like their jobs *cough* KPOP *cough*). I don't think plastic surgery is degrading at all. I don't think there's anything wrong with wanting to look pretty either. Do people frown upon makeup? I kind of think people with insecurities tend to have plastic surgery to change into another person, but I feel like that's a good thing. Changing yourself and striving to be like someone else isn't bad in particular. I don't think you should judge someone just by their beauty, and if you are, if they have had plastic surgery or not.

In fact, I'm considering getting plastic surgery myself. And it's not because I have insecurities (this sounds super narcissist, but I think I look pretty good), but it's mainly because I want to look prettier, but I don't think that's wrong. I'm thinking about getting a nose job to lower the bump between the nasal bone and the upper lateral cartilage. I'm also thinking about getting a jaw surgery. But I don't think it's bad.

If you're getting plastic surgery to fix/reconstruct something, fine.

If you're getting it to try and look sexier / younger, then I have questions.

Mainly because the latter category almost never turns out well and plastic surgeons as a whole clearly don't have enough ethics to stop working on someone despite the unfolding disaster they're causing. I mean when was the last time you looked at a celebrity that had had work done and thought it was an improvement instead of wondering if an alien was wearing their face like an Edgar suit?

Couldn't care less. Mutilate your body to your hearts content.

Just dont expect me to call you Tom Cruise even if you manage to get a good enough surgeon to make you look like him.
