    Is Plastic Surgery right?

    Is is 100% wrong or would you say it is okay to alter your body?

    Depends on the situation.

    For example, the woman whose face was torn apart by a monkey and she eventually finished her plastic surgery, I would say that is absolutely the right thing to do (and I'm very sorry that situation happened to her).

    However, the woman who is pretty much doing endless plastic surgery procedures to look exactly like the Barbie doll (she was far beyond a dozen procedures when I read about it a while back) - not right - for so many reasons.

    Of course, hardly anyone is on those extreme ends, but pretty much those are the two sides of the scale. I'd ask a person to re-evaluate their decision for plastic surgery. If it's simply to "feel better about yourself" really think if this one thing will actually give you self-esteem. And of course, consider the possible repercussions.

    I think this is an "abortion" topic....which simply means let everyone make their own decisions based on what's right for them and what they can live with. 

    There are many instances where I think it's "wrong" for people but there are also instances where I think it's ok and even a GOOD idea.

    I think that if someone is altering their body strictly to "fit" in with what society sees as "perfect" that's crazy. But it's their money...let them decide (as long as they are fully AWARE of what their doing) IE not 12 years old (I just wrote a hub on this actually).

    If someone suffers from an accident... IE a fire and is burned, a horrible car accident and loses a limb, the Miami incident of the canibal "eating" his face off....please by all means I think plastic surgery is warranted...I think plastic surgery orginated for these reasons.

    Again though I think this is one of those topics where I could personally careless about what someone does with his or her body(ies) (assuming it's not my child, or someone "close" to me) they have the money to do it. Go for it!

    Personally, I would not do it unless my individual circumstances "warranted" it. But then again I'm still semi-young I could revisit this topic in a few years and my opinion may change. But even then I want people to "but the heck outta my business"......

    Just my 2 cents smile....

    Good question (BTW).... that I of course wrote a "book" reposnse to.

    Definitely a case of "to each his own".  However, I do believe some people's views change as they age; or when they are suddenly able to afford a procedure they may not have been able to afford before.

    I think it is up to the individual.  I can't say it is wrong, but I might say it is unwise for certain people over certain perceived deficiencies.  Good plastic surgery certainly has its place.

    Are speaking from a religious standpoint, then I really don't know the answer to that.

    I agree that it's up to the individual and not wrong in most cases. If someone has been in an accident or attack, such as the incident in Miami and the woman who's face was torn apart by monkeys as has already been mentioned, then I support their decision 100%. Just because something terrible has happened to someone does not mean that they should have to live with the reminder, and if there's a way to try and change the results of what happened to them then they should absolutely do it, if that's what they want.

    There are some other cases where plastic surgery is necessary for health reasons, for example a breast reduction if they cause you bad back pain. In the cases of people having plastic surgery for  non-health related issues, well, if it's just the one or two procedures then what's the harm? If they can afford it and it makes them happier with themselves, then why should we try and stop them? Of course there's the argument that if you're unhappy with yourself and your body then surgery won't change that, but again that's up to the individual.

    I think the cases where people have A LOT of plastic surgery, i.e. the cat lady, or the woman who's trying to look like Barbie as has been mentioned... I think they probably have some problems or mental illness that should try and be tackled before they're allowed to get more. I don't think that it's healthy and I really don't think it could make a truly healthy person happy, so I think that before they're allowed to get more they should be screened for mental illness in some way, and then treated if they realise they are sick.
