personally, i dislike plastic surgery simply because the person getting it doesn't see
their own unique and beautiful traits.
i understand if you have a body defect or something. but ...other than that. i don't like it all.

Plastic surgery is like the newest diet fads. People who are overweight always seem to think that their being overweight is the cause of all their problems. So they're so eager to go on this new miracle diet because they think it will cure all their problems. People who are not so attractive think that this is the root of all their problems, and they think if they improve their appearance by painful means this will cause their lives to be better and almost perfect. But hardly, I doubt this is the case.
When society and people spend all their time concentrating on their outer appearance and superficiality...let's be serious, how much room do you have to work on bettering yourself and becoming a better person for the rest of the world on the inside? Then people go on to judge others by appearance even more. It's a self-destructive cycle. Why do you think people in Hollywood and LA are absolute arrogant bastards, where the plastic surgery in America is concentrated, and only care for money, how people look, and bringing others down when they don't look a certain way? Imagine that happening to a whole country. It would be devestating to intellect and humanity. Everyone would turn into half-brained bimbos. Then again...I doubt plastic surgery advocates have thought this deeply to the effects of a surgery takeover other than the (unrealistic) good side. Why am I surprised. Only the surface is important to them after all.
I think I'm the only one who is scared to see that re-constructing your face has become a new hobby, and most people seem to think nothing is wrong with it. This would've never been the case 50 years ago. Ask yourself this: Is our intelligence falling or rising? Do your research. See where we'll be in the next 70 years by the way we're shaping our minds and lifestyles.

I usually don't consider doing a nose job or fixing something else as something wrong. Some people are happy with how they look but feel that a slight modification would enhance their life and I feel that it does have its' positive effects sometimes. However I feel that when a person does multiple interventions, he/she has issues which are much more serious than physical appearance. I really don't admire those people who go through a lot of interventions just to fit in society's current ideal image of "beauty". I feel that these people suffer from a low self-esteem and go through these interventions simply because they yearn to get the approval of people. Similarly to winterheaven, I feel that these people are usually the ones who are superficial and unable to be happy with who they are and probably they'll never be because there will always be some new intervention that they want to try out, similarly to several celebrities.
It's really sad sometimes seeing how celebrities on magazines are completely airbrushed, got several interventions and look completely different from how they were before their success. Makes you wonder if they even have a sense of self-identity. Sure beauty matters a lot in this current age but I feel that the price is too high to sacrifice just to fit in the slot of perceived "beauty". It's no wonder that many celebrities with all their beauty get themselves into drugs, excess drinking, empty relationships or unhealthy lifestyles (anorexia, bulimia, etc) because they are so obsessed with the external appearances that they forget to develop other aspects of their own personalities and remain superficial Barbies and many are utterly miserable.
Also it's seriously ridiculous to think that people who don't like or do plastic surgery are jealous. Believe it or not, some people are happy with who they are and are confident enough to have their flaws. Confidence is when you are able to be happy with who you are and no plastic surgery is going to remodel your confidence or remove your insecurity. I'm quite skeptical of those TV programs which give plastic surgeries to people because of their low self-esteem and suddenly they become so "confident".
In the end I believe being natural is the best solution. People are too obsessed with the concept of beauty and the idea that being beautiful will make all their problems vanish, that it's becoming ridiculous.

i don't actually like those people who under go plastic surgery just to make their self beautiful in front of others... except of course those who have an accident before and needed to have this kind of operation.
i totally agree with you... but what the heck. if they've got the money to go under the knife, it's really the patient's right to do it. but for me, i'm not in favor of plastic surgery unless it's really needed like mentioned above.
