    What are your views on cosmetic surgery? I don't mean reconstructive surgery, like to help burn victims, but cosmetic surgery. Plastic surgery done just to make the patient feel better about themselves.

    Do you think these kinds of plastic surgeries are right or wrong? Do people who get them have legitimate gripes about their bodies or are they victims of a society that places too much emphasis on looks?

    Personally, I'm a big fan of cosmetic surgery. I've gotten it before and I would like to get even more work done in the future.

    I'm of two minds on this. I have had restorative plastic surgery because of an automobile accident.
    I think elective surgery is fine if it makes you feel better about yourself, but I've seen so many people who have become disassociated with their appearance apparently because they have just gone too far with it; I know a hand full of people who looked just fine and now their faces look butchered.
    I have broken my nose so many times I've lost count, I would love to have it fixed but it does not bother enough to go through with the procedure.

    I am think it is great that there is plastic surgery. The commercial market of it has helped dev techniques for accident victims. If it makes someone happy...great.

    plastic surgeons piss me off. and 99% of plastic surgeries look horrible, imo. look at lisa rinna

    and huge tits (especially fake ones) are not attractive to me. it's a wonder anyone finds a body riddled with plastic surgery attractive

    If I could afford it, I'd go in to get "freshened".

    i don't think it's in someone's best interest to do it...u almost never look natural...my mother has never gotten a single bit of work done and she's gorgeous...it's all about your diet, physical activity and how well you take care of your body

    there should be more alternative for the cock. If they can make a tit so much larger then why not a dick. You could walk in the office and see all these pics of big ass porn star cock and say hey give me a Jeff Stryer special , or a Lee Ryder curve. Now that would be worth having for both parties of a relationship.

    i <3 you

    you took the words out of my mouth. my grandparents are 70, and they look like they're barely 50 (yay asian blood!) they eat well. my grandma rides her bike every day, and my grandpa surfs every day. also, he smokes pot every day haha. but i digress. it's all about how a person takes care of themselves

    they do. there's two ways to surgically enhance your cock: weird ass injections (ew) or cutting the tendon at the base. either way, ew

    Butt those way don't actually work. Those methods will very likely leave your penis deformed and non functional.

    i never said they worked. i just said that there are cosmetic surgery methods

    also, all cosmetic surgery leaves you deformed. there was a special on TLC a few months ago about people obsessed with plastic surgery. a guy, and 2 women (one of which is my aunt, jeannine)

    that guy's face was 9 levels of jacked up. and the worst part...all his friends, and even his shrink said he looked "beautiful." i wanted to reach through the tv and slap some bitches

    I'm not for it at all,some people end up looking truly scary,and inhuman like that ''Cat Lady''.You should make the best of what you have and be thankful for it.

    That was a good episode. But, would that really be so bad? I mean, forcing everyone to look one way is of course bad, but what's wrong with giving everyone the option to become beautiful?

    The girl in that episode was supposed to be a homely, average looking girl. Now she was happy being average, but if we're being fair her mother was looking out for her best interests, because in reality it's always better to be beautiful than average.

    But what if what you have is worthless? What if you're ugly and have an unattractive body? Why should you be thankful for that?

    I haven't seen the guy's face, so I can't comment on his looks, but to say that all plastic surgery leaves the patient disfigured is wrong. A botched plastic surgery will do that, but one that goes well will definitely not leave a person deformed.

    Once again, I haven't seen this guys face so I can't comment. But what if you're getting plastic surgery to make yourself look more natural? Is okay then?

    After living in California for so many years, I saw firsthand that plastic surgery is addictive and those who choose to get it very rarely stop at one procedure. First, a gal wanted bigger boobs; then, the boobs were "fixed" so she thinks "what about the little "pooch" in my tummy"? Okay the tummy's flat (for now), but what about these thin lips? So the lips get implants and now they, the boobs and the tummy have been fixed...but i think my nose could afford to be a bit smaller. Oh, and what about these ears that stick out? And my saggy/small butt? Oh and these sallow cheekbones. And the wrinkles in my forehead and the crow's feet around my eyes and the lines in my neck and hell, why not get vaginoplasty as well while I'm at it? Oy. It gets to be endless.

    If it's done well there is no "unnatural" look. My sister (aged 60) has had her eyelids done and had smoker's lines lasered out. She just looks more rested and relaxed. I've had hair transplants done and it looks so natural that the few people I've told didn't initially believe me. Often an unnatural appearance is the result of an incompetent or overly aggressive surgeon and/or a demanding or unrealistic patient.

    dude, i know right? most people get addicted to the surgery (and, who knows? maybe to the pain pills as well!)

    also, plastic surgery lips scare me. how ca anyone find that attractive? and do people with with bad lip jobs (like lisa rinna) know they're bad?



    again, this is just my opinion, but no matter how "well done" the surgery is, it will always look unnatural to me.


    and for those who are lucky enough to have never seen lisa rinna:
