Naturally, if the consequences are Michael Jackson syndrome (never being satisfied, surgery every other month), then the surgery is bad for you.
    I totally agree with this statement.

    I also draw the line where 13-year-olds, whose body is still growing, want to have plastic surgery because they don't feel sexy enough yet. Let them grow up first, then they can still decide if bigger lips or boobs are necessary for their self-esteem or self-worth.

    As for myself, I've had plastic surgery. I suffered from a terrible inferiority complex because of my nose. I've tried to come to grips with it, told myself that I have to accept who I was. It didn't work. I just felt ugly. It has really changed my life for the better when I finally decided to have the operation. That was about 10 years ago and I still think it was the best investment of my life.

    Whoa, buddy, you're getting pretty controversial there, might want to slow down.

    It can be hard to tell as a newcomer if one doesn't know people yet

    I wouldn't mind that. Especially if I get a nose that shoots out booger-bombs as well.

    i don't think so.

    plus i'm squeamish when it comes to injuring another person.

    i guess i could just use them to cut holes in bank vaults and become filthy rich with other people's cash and valuables.
    just throw it against the wall and see what sticks.

    There ya go. I agree with this. As you get older you can start to think a little differently. I'll never be able to afford it and my self esteem wouldn't be totally wrapped up in it, but if I ever could I'd want some extra skin removed from my tummy, make sure I'd never get the neck roll that seems to run in my family (nothing to do with weight) mine's not bad now, but I don't like what I'm seein' in the mirror.

    honestly I love the idea of plastic surgery- I would opt for bigger boobs for example but am too scared of the application- I have no tolerance for pain-NONE I not only had an epidural- I even had it boosted for crying out loud and don't ever want to give birth again

    that and I am too cheap- it doesn't seem worth the money
