Do you believe in plastic surgery?

There are so many people who have changed something about their physical appearance and I sometimes wonder if in the future there will be no one as they were born. I, myself, am toying with the idea. What are your feelings?

I would never get it, but I wouldn't think less of a person if they got plastic surgery. Realistically and pragmatically, lots of things are based on looks. People definitely get treated differently if they look better, so it makes sense to me that people will change how they look to get further in life.

I'm kind of against and with having surgery... It depends. I think people should be happy with the way they look. They were born to look different. But then again I personally have things that I would love to change about myself. So I would never want to stop someone else from being able to not change what they hate about themselves... Too me having surgery is almost like getting a tattoo or piercings.

Im on the fence. I want breast implants. Not sure I would ever have plastic surgery on my face though. I'm def not against it though. People should do what makes them happy, and if they have the money to get it done. What's it to me?

I think that plastic surgery is a spectacular thing that has really lets a lot of people continue living normal lives when they otherwise wouldn't have, so yes, I believe in and support plastic surgery.

Unnecessary, cosmetic surgery? That I am not so into, and I feel like it's a bit vein and it's mostly propagated by stupid media standards. On the other hand, I'm not going to tell anyone how to live their lives, and as long as it doesn't hurt others I think that whatever will make them happy they can go ahead and do.

I would only get surgery for medical reasons.

I haven't gotten it done, but if I did, I would get my breasts lifted because I have one that's slightly larger then the other and no matter what I do or use, I keep getting a raw rash under the larger one. I have even tried Dr. prescribed medications and I still get them.

I sometimes wonder if people who got unnecessary plastic surgery maybe had some self worth issues, and thought the surgery would "fix" it. I am certain not all patients feel that way, but it does cross my mind.

I have no plans to get any myself, but I have no problem with it, people are free to do what they want with their own bodies. I do notice when it hasn't been done well, or if it leaves them kind of funny looking, but I don't think they're bad people or anything like that. I guess I'm just kind of "meh" about it - just don't care!

I'm all for it. After this weight comes off, I'm absolutely getting a boob job.

Oh definitely. If someone can't feel comfy in their body the way it is, who am I to say they shouldn't get it to look better? I think there should be psychological counseling first for people who have already had a lot of procedures (And I don't mean, like, ones that have to take multiple procedures or stuff that is really quite necessary like removing an obvious defect.) but in general, I don't judge.

This.

I considered getting my boobs evened up--they're a cup+ in size difference, it runs in the family--but my significant other said he liked them just the way they are.

I agree on the self-esteem issue about getting surgery. Some people really do feel better about themselves and what they can do afterwards, so it's that crutch/tool that helps them. Others find out that their lives didn't magically get better. I guess it depends on where one is psychologically when getting it.

I likely won't, although I day dream of how parts of my body could be enhanced (nose, etc). I think we all do at some point. If I get anything altered, it'd likely be dental work because of an odd overbite I developed while growing up that never got taken care of.

A snarky part of my mind says "Wouldn't it be great if you could get all that fat out and give it to all those girls/guys who feel they're too thin? Wouldn't it be a great benefit for everyone?"

It depends some people go crazy with it and it's not good. other people actually need it. Say a person gets injured and they want to go back to the way they looked before. Also Brest implants after a cancer . Those women fight to live and deserve to feel good about there looks ,and not feel like they got there femininity taken from them. And also breast reduction can benefit some women.

I'm for and against it. If people are unhappy they should change it. However there are some people that take to the extreme which isn't healthy.

I would never get plastic surgery but if other people do that's their own prerogative.

I'm not against it. If I had enough money, I'd get things fixed that I feel insecure about like my boobs.

I don't care if people want to get plastic surgery. It's just like my opinion on tattoos: I never really want to get one but I don't care if people do. It's their own life.

I think everyone is beautiful the way the are, but I also understand not everyone shares this view. If someone believes they need some form of modification whether it is surgery, piercings, or even tattoos then they should do what will make them be happier with themselves. I don't find myself pretty in any way and there are times i wish I had a bit larger breasts.

I think plastic surgery is fantastic. I have no regrets after having my breast reduction.

It's a personal decision. If it's for damage or a malformation, I think it is different than just doing it to "look better."

In my profession, I have worked with some women who have had breast implants. Most of them thought it would "change their entire life." When it didn't (and it never did) they got very depressed. Some of them go on to have more and more surgery to get that happiness they think is only one procedure away. It never works. I've worked with a small number of women who have had breast reductions and they all regretted it. (remember I work with breastfeeding women, and reductions seriously impact a woman's ability to make milk. Breast implants don't, but the removal of tissue and moving of the nipple with breast reduction can cause serious issues with the ability to make milk.)

I'd advise women of childbearing age to wait until they are completely done with childbearing, or know they do not want children and never will and preferably in menopause before reducing their breasts and destroying their milk ducts in the process. I know SO many women who thought they were "done" having kids, then either got divorced and remarried or simply got pregnant, and then had terrible problems with their reductions. It's not something that can be put back the way it was, and causes permanent damage to the breast. (Unlike implants which can be removed and little harm is done to the breast.)
