How do you feel about elective cosmetic surgery?

cosmetic surgery
Oracle asked:

If money were no object, would you have cosmetic surgery? Not for anything medical like fixing a burn or a cleft palate, but something totally cosmetic like a nose job or breast augmentation.

    it depends on the person. if it is something that is going to make you feel better about yourself, then by all means. breast implants are terrible for you. but like reduction and etc i would totally get done. taking things out of my body, not putting them in. there is just something not right about putting a foreign object inside my body.

    No. You shouldn’t use surgery to “fix” a superficial problem. Cosmetic surgery is just a way to show off extra money and try to become a human barbie doll.

    Sure. well I wouldn’t want breasts, ha ha.. But anyway, we are born into these bodies and they belong to us. I think we have the right to do whatever we want with them… although I think some choices are obviously better than others. I don’t have any bad feelings about people who want to look better. now a lot of the time I don’t think they end up looking better at all.. but that is just me. For me.. whatever. I guess I would like a sharper nose but it isn’t killing me to have it. I did lose a lot of weight and I have some loose skin here and there which I would get off if I had spare change laying around to do it. Breast augmentation.. well I think fake breasts look absolutely terrible on anybody that doesn’t need them for after a mastectomy. But even then, I think people who think they need them are perfectly fine. I just don’t have a desire to touch them… ewwwwww

    no. new boobs or a better nose doesnt really make people happy. they should get therapy instead. besides, big fake boobies and all that isn’t cool anymore…its traaaashy.

    If you can afford it, and you really did your research on the procedure and the doc, why not?
    Most answerers are young enough not to need remedial cosmetic surgery [ except dermabrasion maybe ], but I can understand fixing a large nose, getting breasts if you have none, a tummy tuck after several Csections, etc, etc. Just get what you ‘need’, not do your entire body!

    Lack of empathy in the world today causes the people above to write comments which could be potentially painful for others. Please stop being so judgmental and try to understand other people’s points of view.

    There are some who have some form of deformity (it feels like that to them) – eg someone with a huge nose which dominates their face, or someon who doesn’t even fit into a AAA cup bra (thatd be me ladies and gentlemen). It’s all good to throw stones but try lving the lfie of someone who has never had breasts, has never experienced them, and feels like less of a woman when she puts her measurements into a bra size calculator and gets “error”. Or step into the shoes of someone whose face seems to revolve around their nose. Or someone whose ears stick out that it is actually the first thing that strangers notice.

    So stop calling it shallow, or saying that we need therapy. If it was a C cup going to a double D, fine. If I said I wanted a nose job (I dont like my nose LOL) – that would be vanity YES!!! I would NEVER have a nose job cos it isnt deformed… it isnt an abnormal characteristic IMO – so i hav the common sense to distinguish the two.

    So to answer ur question

    YES I would have plastic surgery

    And I WILL be having it in July :-)

    I’m doing this for me, going from less than an AAA cup to a B cup :-)

    oh, and 2pics – to demonstrate my nose job point…. LOL

    I work for a Plastic Surgeon and I a concur with what Nurse Susan says. There are people who do overuse plastic surgery, but most people have plastic surgery for very real issues. You might be surprised how many women have asymmetrical or malformed breasts, and I have seen many peoples’ self esteem improve greatly after getting a nose job.
