•It’s the fact that it promotes a continuing descent into all things vain. Rather than accepting their perceived (important keyword) flaws, growing, and developing character, they take a chance going under the knife. Plastic surgery rarely produces the desired results and creates more unhealthy obsession with things that would be relatively trivial in a mentally healthy person with proper priorities. Even if, by some miracle, someone is completely happy with their surgery, it only serves to perpetuate the cycle; for themselves and for others. The obsession doesn’t go away in these people.
Their thinking inevitably moves on to having more things done. •The plastic surgery craze is insidious because it targets those who are obsessed with their outer appearance, not what’s important. The mental and emotional toll on plastic surgery patients is, maybe unsurprisingly, widely disregarded. The simple fact is: mental and emotional stability are increasingly taking a backseat to physical appearance. People just don’t realize what they’re doing to themselves because they’ve never really valued anything other than physical appearance in the first place.
•The fact that these things aren’t obvious to more people truly shows where our culture is heading. •Just think about this question: Is the freedom to do whatever we want with our lives a valuable passport even to overpass the limits of morals and ethics. •People generally aren’t against plastic surgery. They’re against people who look perfectly fine getting their face cut up because they want to look like their favourite celebrity. It’s only people who have, for example, have been in a car accident and had their face shattered, or people who were born naturally deformed.
•The money spent for finding out newer/better surgery options could be used for important causes. For example, plastic surgery is a billion-dollar industry, if plastic surgery were not glorified so much, the billions spent could be used to find new cures for diseases, or for research. People should not worry about their pretty little faces more than new medicines that could help man live longer. •Honestly, it is the puritan in people that makes them hate plastic surgery. Why anyone could feel passionately about the surgery of someone else is beyond me.
I think it is personal reasons unique to each person. Either they feel the body is made by god and should not be altered, or they are horrified by the idea of someone cutting them up, or they dislike vanity, or they think it is a waste of money, or whatever. But they should keep in mind, that it isn’t their body or their money. Some people are unhappy after having surgery done, even if it went well and some people love it. But, it isn’t really business of anyone but the person going through it.
•Plastic surgery may give to you a lot of confidence, but it could also make you even more concerned about your appearance. •There are too many burn victims and children who truly need the surgery. If I had the money to buy myself a pair of large breasts I don’t think I could. It is a vain thing to think that large breasts are more important than a child who cant afford to fix their Clef lip. •No one seems to have mentioned the distinction between cosmetic plastic surgery and reconstructive surgery.
Very few people would object to someone having surgery to correct a birth defect such as a cleft lip, or having surgery to repair a face damaged by fire. The growing obsession with cosmetic surgery, however – having “work done” on increasingly insignificant “problems” – creates a climate where people feel they cant live with their bodies without going under the knife. Those who want surgery are becoming younger and younger, and we are approaching a point where teenagers are growing up feeling ugly because they haven’t had a nose job or breast implants.
Obviously there are occasions when cosmetic surgery can dramatically boast someones self-esteem, and in these circumstances, it is a good thing. However, more and more people want surgery, but we are not becoming uglier as a race, we are just adjusting our notion of what is beautiful and what is not. All of us are the product of billions of year’s of evolution and sexual selection; we are the direct descendants of 100s of millions of others who have been found sexually attractive by someone else, we can’t be that ugly.
Learn to love the body you’ve got. Some people are against plastic surgery because it is generally unnecessary surgery which comes with very serious risks. Not only that, but our society places great importance in appearance, which leads to unrealistic standards that young girls and women strive to uphold. Condoning plastic surgery only strengthens these insane standards and weakens the self esteem of girls and women who do not feel as though they measure up. For plastic surgery: They may want to look younger for professional or personal reasons.
They may want to change a feature they never liked. 1. Health Reasons. Some people may have gone through rough times caused by sickness or massive weight loss, so it’s only natural for people to correct the damage caused by their illness. People may want to fix a problem that maybe causing health issues and surgery is the only option available, some people need surgery to survive. 2. Accidents. Another reason why people get cosmetic surgery is because they have been in a accident. Minor car crashes, sports, work accident anything you can think of.
Because of accidents people can become severely deformed and cosmetic/plastic surgery is the only option to help fix peoples injuries. 3. Self Esteem. Some people choose to get cosmetic surgery to boost their self esteem. They need a boost and they think cosmetic surgery will give them that. In my opinion it does, people are extremely grateful to see the new changes to there bodies that they have always wanted. 4. Re constructive Surgery. Re constructive procedures correct deformities on the face or body.
These include physical birth defects like cleft lips and palates and ear deformities, traumatic injuries like those from dog bites or burns, or the aftermath of disease treatments like rebuilding a females breast after they have undergone surgery for breast cancer. 5. Vanity Some people say vanity is the reason why people get cosmetic surgery, in some cases it is the case. Botox, Face lifts, Breast Augmentation can all be considered vanity procedures. But it is a choice and people choose to have these procedures performed and if it contributes to there self esteem who are we to judge.
