    That is so horrible. I've never seen that before. It's hard to believe that people are doing this to themselves and it's considered normal.

    I'm very much into researching plastic surgery because it fascinates me. Pretty much every star has has nose surgery and they all get the same nose. It's insane.



    This one really threw me over the edge. He looked like a surfer dude before (albeit a bit younger and after he has that hardened hollywood nose look. (before also looks somewhat like the nose that runs in my family)
    Another pic that is more similar http://plasticsergeant.com/files/ima...s-nose-job.jpg

    When you start researching you start to be able to tell when people have surgery.

    Also, fia, you are so lucky you didn't have that surgery. My cousin and friend both did (different parts of the USA, different doctors) and it really did nothing good. It even killed the nerves in my friend's face and now she has no feeling in her chin.

    I don't think they go for more than $20K. Probably less. Too many people in absolute poverty bringing the price down.

    There are cases where plastic surgery is a necessity - people born with disfiguration, or an accident left them disfigured, or burn victims, or someone who IS LITERALLY wanting a change in identity (down to the core) - like trans men and women.

    She is not looking to change her core identity, I don't think she even thought of it that deeply (or self-reflected to that point). Therein lies the potential danger.

    It's like @lunareclipze is looking at funhouse mirrors.

    @lunareclipze, I know it will be hard to believe, but once you leave your high school and your shitty neighbourhood, the world out there is going to be much different (when you go off to college). You'll still find judgemental people (you're one of them) - but you'll also find others who are like-minded like you.

    Work on being a person who others want to be around, be friends with - and save the money you have to enable you to leave your current world behind, for college, the rest of your life. Rather than spending it on plastic surgery.
    how am i judgemental?

    Ooh, she's sittin' with you
    But her eyes are on the door.

    The extreme forms that @lunareclipze is talking about does sound scary. It sounds like it could go very wrong.
    Oh well I might as well just take the chance because if I stay in the present form I'm in I'll never ever have a boyfriend that isn't under 300 pounds, covered in zits and actually has any sense of good hygiene.

    I don't know how accurate this article is, but apparently, even when organs go for a lot, the donor only receives a fraction of the money. If I could get $270K for one of my kidneys I'd probably do it so my kids could have a decent start in life, so if you are able to get that, please let me know. My kidneys are older, but my blood type is O+ and I don't smoke or drink and I'm not overweight, so one might still be worth something.

    I love it when people bring up the "Black market" like it's some easy entity to buy and trade from. And clearly it is part of a system of rules and regulations so you don't sign some piece of paper and wake up swiss cheesed of organs because why they were at it they took half the liver, a lung, and possibly the spleen BECAUSE WHY NOT.

    The black market is another way of saying "here's a totally easy way to earn and receive a Darwin Award."

    Sell your eggs. That way you'll have money and more people in the population will look like the original you thus making you even more pretty.

    There's that, as a buyer... and as a seller, you know how many people get ganked by cops trying to hock stuff or arrange for crimes to occur?

    Plus, you need a surgeon who is actually reputable enough to take it out and put it back in someone else, and who will risk their license doing so. All those years of med school...!

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
