In which cases do you think it's okay to have a cosmetic surgery?
If it is medically called for or if someone is literally disfigured in some way from an accident of some kind. Burn victims and the like should definately be given access to such care. Its as much a mental thing as it is a living a normal life thing. People are rude and stare, heck, they do that when someone is wearing a yellow shirt on green shirt day! Imagine what it must be like for someone already struggling with their situation.
When it's more necessary for medical reasons. And when it's safe. For those who have the money for it, and get addicted to it, then whatever we may think is irrelevant. It's their right, and it's not our place to dispute it.
Outside of some accident or disfigurement, I believe it's okay as long as the patient is an adult who believes their confidence will improve and they understand all of the risks. I also think that it is important that the patient is the one who pays for the surgery. This is because if someone else pays for it, it's possible the person may not take the surgery or aftercare as seriously as they should. I know of an obese man who got gastric bypass surgery and he did not pay for that surgery because he was out of work and had no health insurance. His benefactor? Some kind of service paid for by taxpayers! I still don't know how this works. Even worse, he's back to overeating and is now drinking alcohol which he has been warned about several times in the past.
I think it's okay to do it for whatever reason the person has, even if others might criticize the choice as superficial.
It's standard practice in the entertainment industry because people feel the pressure to compete with their peers. That may be unfortunate, but as long as they have the money to pay for it without shirking their other financial responsibilities, then it's their business.
The first thing that popped into my head was a woman getting breast augmentation if she had to have a masectomy because of breast cancer. I think there would be absolutely nothing wrong with that, and I would want to do that myself, if I were ever in a similar situation.
If I had to choose a case it will be old age (wrinkles).I have always believed that if it falls I will get it lifted.I have not reached that place yet but I believe that people should do whatever they may choose to do with their own bodies. If it makes you feel good by having a nose job then go for it..........
The only justifiable reason for having cosmetic surgery would be for purely medical reasons, cancer patients and people suffering with physical deformities. It should be for people whose lives will be improved from the surgery and not for people who are victims of their own vanity. Too many people put themselves at risk for silly reasons and it's becoming to much of a trend to have cosmetic surgery for vanity.
I honestly think everyone should have the right to do whatever they want to their bodies. It's goofy, and they may look stupid in the process (Michael Jackson is a perfect example - the poor guy looked like an alien by the end), and it seems as though it is addictive.
I do think it's important that one approaches it with a sound mind. In medical cases, reconstructive and cosmetic surgery can make a patient feel whole again.
If someone is doing it for purely cosmetic reasons, do they fully understand the consequences? Currently, the country of France is paying to remove defective breast implants. Are they being encouraged by their partner? Or, do they feel they need it for professional reasons? If, for any reason, they are being manipulated into getting surgery, then it's a bad idea.
Also, their personal motivation should be examined. If it comes from a sense of low self-esteem, then cosmetic surgery isn't going to make them feel better.
I think it's OK when someone gets burned badly or get in some kind of accident or if they have some sort of birth defect that they need corrected.
But people can do whatever they want. I don't judge anybody for getting unnecessary cosmetic surgery but I often shake my head at how awful they look.
I think the choice of having cosmetic surgery is a very personal one and that it is sa choice each individuals has to decide based on what they feel is right for them. I do not think there should be anyone dictating who can or can't. I myself would not opt for it unless it was to fix something because of an accident or some extreme incident.
