Plastic surgery... Well, it depends!
I do accept plastic surgery for people who have suffered from accidents or cancer in order to restore them to the level of normal life (you know what I'm talking about? People afer explosion, women who lost their breast because of cancer etc.).
But what we actually need here is a social surgery. Wee girls grow up with a Barbie image in their mind and get nasty looks and comments from their schoolmates if they are "too fat" or wear glasses or have a nose that just won't fit modern style. And later, when they go out looking for a job. Who will look at their papers first? The first look (as most bosses, at least over here, are male) still goes to the woman's breast, then to her lips, and maybe, to her hair and eyes. So who is more likely to get the job? Barbie or the pale, crook-nosed, intelligent with her big glasses? We need a real change here, for instance because there are still too many people dying from bulimia every year!
As long as people are judged first by their outward appearance and not by their words and acts, plastic surgery will be a fine thing to earn money with. But real beauty comes from within. And how will you model inner beauty with a knife?
I am a rather queer person, I know. I don't even use make up. I have a face and I don't need to paint me one. I suffer from atopic eczemia and from time to time my face is really ugly, tomato-red and swollen with bits of skin hanging loose on it. But that's me and it will be there, if I cover it with paint or not.
I would not force my opinion onto anyone else. And I would not judge those who like to undergo plastic surgery. That's a very individual question. But I would never like to be a plastic surgeon and make people believe that they'll be happier with a smaller nose or bigger ...!
