    If it makes you happy, go for it. I think when surgeons fail to address an underlying mental disorder and continue doing extreme surgeries on patients without at least attempting to refer them to a therapist, first, that it's medically irresponsible.

    Skin loses elasticity, cell turnover slows, boobs sag. Some women are born with an A cup on the left and a C on the right - just google ''the normal breast gallery.'' If I had drastically asymmetrical breasts, I'd want to downsize the larger one to get a more symmetrical look. I can't blame anyone for wanting to just have a basically symmetrical shape, adjusting anomalies, and such. Even if it's purely to adjust something that ain't broke, go for it- in moderation. Providing the person doesn't have underlying body image problems that will lead them to surgery addiction, I'm ok with people modifying their appearance however they please. If I ever started getting that hangy turkey neck when I'm older, I'd be tempted to get that removed, assuming I had the funds to do so. Beyond that, count me out.

    I do think a lot of people would seek out this sort of thing less, if they generally took better care of their bodies; diet/exercise/sleep/good skincare routine. Maybe not significantly less, but, I think it might make a difference.

    I think another issue is that, maybe a lot of people don't properly research the surgeons they see. The idea of plastic surgery is to enhance your features and have it appear natural. Believe it or not, this is achieveable. However, this is something we can't really point out, so plastic surgery tends to be associated mainly with what we DO see- the bad boob jobs with lumps of silicone sitting on the muscle above the breast, the trout-pout lip injections, the extreme facelifts..

    my brother's a really talented plastic surgeon and gives white and asian women bigger asses. as in: relocates excess fat from their thighs or stomachs and gives them a booty. sculpts it and everything. they love it and he loves helping them feel better about themselves.

    he also works with mastectomy patients and has some incredible before/after pics on his gallery. he restores confidence to women who feel ashamed of their bodies on top of having gone through cancer and visible tissue loss...

    none of this is easy. he takes cosmetic and reconstructive patients through a very extensive interview process to make sure his patients know what they want and what they're getting into. he also has a visualization lab that scans your body and lets him collaborate with you on designing the desired outcome. he is honest about what he can and cannot do and has no problem turning away unrealistic patients. importantly, he has an in-house psychiatrist who works with all of his patients pre- and post-operatively.

    i think that's just badass. (he also designed and built his own surgical suite across from a hospital and is a professor at one of the world's best medical schools. you don't want to go to a B-player who doesn't take his shizz seriously, do you?)

    so while i don't care what you do with your body, if you're going to get plastic surgery i think you should be smart about it. check out your MD's facilities, interview former patients, look at outcomes (show them to other plastic surgeons for second opinions if you like), talk to her/his staff beforehand...
    I may be kindly, I am ordinarily gentle, but in my line of business I am obliged to will terribly what I will at all.

    Not a fan.

    At all.

    Edit: I have no problem with it if it's for genuine medical reasons.

    Some are whipped with the ugly stick and for some, the years are not kind. Thank God for plastic surgery beautifying our environment.

    Not normally bothered by it and only an intensely dishonest person would claim there is nothing they would want changed about themselves, although those who take it too far and look like they are a melted wax candle need to think about what they are doing to themselves.

    Id have plastic surgery if you could use it to change what I wished to change.

    Okay, so what you change if it was free of charge?

    Ya know honestly I hate that looks are so over emphasized in the world. Like its just about the best thing you can be. My beautiful daughter, son etc everyone talks about looks constantly. Nicer looking people are treated better. It sucks. The whole thing sucks. And people are programmed to think certain attributes are more appealing than others.

    I wish for a week I could experience the world without this mentality.

    On the other hand. Who cares. I feel better when I look good and I like being a visual person an being moved by beauty and appreciate being appreciated so I get it.

    Fake boobs aren't pretty tho. People shoul really stop that. So are fake full lips. Yuck.

    I never noticed this quote. There was never anything I wanted changed.

    Now that aging has set in I would tweak if I could but obviously I only care about my looks so much since I did let myself get overweight. (And don't wear makeup very often)

    It's also still surgery and is a bit scary. Our pediatrician seems to have done well with two facelifts but I think this third one isn't looking right. Maybe it's some other medical issue but it seems pretty obvious since I've seen her recovering from surgery. It's still a bit of gambling just for cosmetics.
