Do Tell: What's Your Opinion on Plastic Surgery?

Do Tell: What's Your Opinion on Plastic Surgery?

Wendy Lewis, the author of Plastic Makes Perfect: The Complete Cosmetic Beauty Guide feels that if you're unhappy with your body, why not just fix it?! She's made a career for herself as a "knife consultant" and even though we live in a time where you can "fix" anything you don't like, are the days of embracing your imperfections long gone? I know a lot of celebrities feel it is, but how do you feel about having a nose that gives you character, or having a little extra cushion for the pushin? Do tell ladies, what are your views on plastic surgery being a readily available quick fix?

If you are that unhappy, and have the money, go for it! I don't think I would ever get anything other than lipo. I like being natural.

I've had corrective plastic surgery and that's one thing. But to get it just to "fit in" or make someone like you more - that's not worth it. There are complications to be had and consequences to be lived with should something go wrong.

do what you want, but make sure you're doing it for yourself and not for someone else.

I know this is very controversial, but I think it is awful! Why would women put themselves through so much trauma, miss work, max out finances...I just can't relate. I want to spend my vacay on a beach, not in bandages. I'm old school, I think confidence is more beautiful than looking like a clone.

For the most part it's a great thing. HOWEVER, I also think a lot of plastic surgeons need to exercise their "No, not necessary" for some people (E.g. the Jackson Clan, Tara Reid, Kenny Rogers) who take it to the extremes or who don't need it.

I would get plastic surgery in a heart beat. I would get total reconstruction of my teeth and jawline. I would get my nose done. Liposuction in my thighs, chin, stomach, arms, and butt. Breast implants for more perkier breasts. Under eye lift so don't look so damn tired all the time.

i just found out a few weeks back that friend got her boobs done (she's NOT in the industry), i was shocked! all this time i envied the b*tch for having perky boobs (she's like a full B-cup, so it never crossed my mind). she thought i was gonna judge her, but i was happy for her! we hugged and drank some more merlot . . .

right now, i'm pretty content with my body. i think if i were to get anything done it would be a boob lift. i'm not wanting humungo-Pam Anderson boobs, just a bit of a lift. i don;t have muffins, so i wouldn't get a tummy tuck or lipo. when i get older, i WILL say that i am not against botox for those wrinkles! i don't judge ppl who get work done, though. As long as you're really happy with it, then go for it. like tha girl from that High School movie crap; i saw a before and after (i thought she was ugly now), but after seeing her nose before, all i could say was "daaaayyyyyuuumm". i'm sure she's 10 million times happier now that she got rid of her nose.

that's a hard issue. On one hand, i think women just do plastic surgery because they need to feel just as 'pretty' as the celebrities. But they don't realize that it's just a huge mistake.. they aren't that perfect! On the other hand, a woman was born to feel pretty and good with herself too! So.. i would only recover to plastic surgery in a very special case. I think we must love ourselves not only by our breasts size or our bikini body.. we are more than that! :)

A superficial alteration? No.I don't understand why people feel the need to change how they look what ever happened to being yourself rather than being generic?

I would totally get plastic surgery when Im older how terrible is it though that we cant just be happy with ourselves and age naturally? kind of sad that every woman you see on TV has had something done to her...

i think theres definatley times when its okay... i'm going into speech pathology and of course corrective surgeries for cleft palates are so essential... and i can understand women who've gone through pregnancies wanting to do it, but i heard some creepy story of this woman who wanted to look like an Egyptian pharoah and kept having face surgery until she did! that stuff is just wrong

i dont know either way but i was just thinking its such a slippery slope. with so many "normal" ppl getting surgery the norm changes and everyone feels some sort of pressure or push to get work done. its different from looking at a celebrity who is clearly unattainable as opposed to looking at a coworker who just looks improved and you think you could get that look too. i'm not putting down ppl who get surgery, but maybe there is something to be said for putting effort and attention into getting ppl to accept that the human body changes/sags/wrinkles with time and that these things are not deformities to be fixed...

I've had plastic surgery and it's been such a positive experience for me. After I had my son I breastfed FOREVER and wanted to get my boobs re-done..so I did. My boobs were perfect before my son but after..yikes!! Having kids can def. change your body to look completely opposite of what it did before. It's not something I had to do..but I wanted to feel better and it absolutely made me feel better. It's something I did for me and I couldn't be happier. I just can't stand the people that do have surgery and deny it--having people think it's natural. People just need to be honest!!
