It is mostly to do with self esteem-it is very sad, honestly the right hairstlye and eyebrows does wonders, also the right clothing and makeup-before you consider surgery. I think some people do it just for the sake of it sometimes.

True wocca-there is dental surgery-i suppose the risks aren't that high against sugery on other parts of the body but we should be happy with how we are, everyone goes through self esteem issues-and particularly women but i mean ive grown out of that now and am happy how i am! I suppose some people are never happy-there is so much more to life than looking 'good.'

ok um just a little help peoples,(would be great) what would you say are the social and ethical problems with Plastic surgery???? Or even TV shows like Extreme makeover???

Hey just another thing if your are ever going to get cosmetic/plastics surgery just think why you are doing it...... cause people shouldn't judge a book by its cover

Are there any social and ethical problems with Plastic surgery????

well those tv shows are terrible because they look like they're exploiting people who have low self esteem, or just happen to be at a low point in their lives. They get a makeover & everyone tells them they look great (what else do you say?)-I can see how people can get hooked. It also seems to me that the bulk of the "amazing transformation" comes from the hair, make-up & clothes. And less so the surgery itself.

Oh and earlier in the thread someone asked about "sex reassignment surgery"-yes that means sex change surgery.

In general I'm against the whole thing (especially for women, because I think the majority of them do so for attention). I reckon it's a good option for people disfigured in car accidents, or disfigured through neccesary medical procedures though as it would help them restore their normality and self confidence. In any case it should be a case for rectifying and not altering our individuality.
(Good topic to bring up Wocca)

...... cause people shouldn't judge a book by its cover should NOT judge someone if they have HAD plastic surgery.

This really has been one of the most judgemental threads on TP...for such a generally open-minded group :(

You may not need one if you can find yourself a sugar daddy, who just wants to love you for the person you really are, deep way down inside
