Not sure where you live, but it seems that whatever channel I turn to, here almost EVERYBODY (and their mamas literally) has had plastic surgery at least once. I was curious as to how many plastic surgeries the famous Joan Rivers have done (who, btw looked so pretty when she was young) and my search was… 739!

Of course, that was a fake number.. but she sure looks like she did have 739 surgeries done to her face : (.

So many celebs have gone under the knives either to look more “beautiful,” “correct their noses,” or just face lifts but seriously, how much is too much?!

Here are some plastic surgery disasters…

What’s your take on plastic surgery?

I wouldn’t like to have any plastic surgery, and hope that I won’t need to have one….

Cosmetic surgery is just an extension of our nation’s plummeting self esteem. I think the aging process is beautiful and we need to learn to embrace it as opposed to listen to all of the advertising that tries to put us down in every way possible so that they can “solve” the problem with their expensive phony products.

If it’s not needed for health reasons absolutely no. Why would you put yourself under this pain, danger and procedure just to “look better”? So many pills to recover, so many chemicals. Definitely not worth it.

if you live in a society that condones it, the surgery is safe, and the end result allows you to achieve a previously unattainable level of self-confidence, then there is nothing standing in your way other than some theoretical moral high ground about being ‘100% real’.

though, I wouldn’t unless like a dog bit my face off or something lol.

Yes. I would get a nose job, and when I’m older I will be getting a face lift. There is nothing wrong with lip injections. And if I had the money to spend I’d get a boob job, but I don’t really need one so it would be a waste of money for me!

If I could afford it and knew it was completely safe, I would get my nose done. It would really help my confidence. I don’t really know what’s the big deal with getting plastic surgery, if it weren’t for the health issue.
So yes to plastic surgery! It’s just another way of changing and adapting your body the way you want to. We use make up, we get tattoos, we get piercings, so what can you say against plastic surgery :)
Keep in mind, of course, that it can go horribly wrong.

I would also like to add that with make-up (cosmetic products), they do not permanently stay on your skin. Don’t like the heavy smoky eye looks anymore? You can wipe them off! Especially, if you’re the kind of person who likes to play with different shades of lipsticks for self-expression without changing your face structure.

I would not get any tattoos either. At least with piercings, you can let your skin fix up by not wearing any body/ facial piercings for a long period of time.

I may not have the face of a cover girl model, but I am content with the way I look physically. For health reasons, I wouldn’t mind fixing a part of my teeth if money weren’t an issue (and no, not that crazy whitening stuff).

Great output, DelightfulD*, I just had this conversation with my boyfriend last night when we saw a commericial of Courtney Cox in her new show, “Cougar…” something I forgot. And we were like, whoa! What happened to her? Apparently, she got too much botox! I think she could have aged beautifully with the wrinkles she has!

People get braces, go to tanning beds, color their hair and take part in many other “smaller” activities resulting in a changed/improved physical image. Like anything…having a healthy perspective and living in moderation will help achieve that perfect balance of when enough is enough and too far is too far!

Yes, I was just at Souplantation earlier tonight and I saw a couple of women with major plastic surgery done (they must have been in their 50s). Sadly it didn’t look so nice on them. : (

@Watermoolen, yeah, I always thought Courtney Cox was beautiful before that weird tan and facial inflates. Well, it is her body after all. XD

I would do it, because like every human I’m searching for perfection.But I wouldn’t exagerate, I don’t want to destroy my face.

i don’t like surgery so i don’t take part in it. I think that there are many ways to be more beautiful without being painful and spending much money

I can only think of two reasons why I’d get it done. 1. If my face was somehow disfigured in an accident, then I’d get surgery to try get back to “normal.” 2. I know someone (an elderly woman) with a disorder that makes it hard for her to keep her eyes open, so she gets bi-weekly botox injections to help her keep her eyes open. So, if I needed it for some medical reason, I would.

I agree with ElloLove77. I can’t think of any other reason why I would get it unless it was medical related.

I don’t know that I would get any actual invasive procedures that require anesthesia unless it’s deemed medically necessary or severely disfiguring, but then I’m also young and childless at the moment so I might change my tune someday! That being said, I CoolSculpting on the Dr. Oz Show and have been really looking into it. It’s supposed to be a non-surgical alternative to liposuction, and the show said they came across the technology based on children sucking on too many popsicles. The cold killed the fat cells in their cheeks and created dimples. I found some before and after pictures and although it takes several weeks or even months for results, if there’s not surgery involved, I don’t really see how it’s any different from braces for your teeth?

Only if needed for health reasons :) People must learn to love themselves for who they are and take care of their bodies. Plastic surgeory is often so expensive and you need to do it more than once if you are going to keep up your new look. You could use that money towards something so much better!

Unless one of your boobs is way smaller or larger than the other, or you got in an accedent and need surgeoy for your face etc than I don’t see the reason.

i feel that if you want it, go for it. i personally wouldn’t get it though unless it were necessary. it’s unbelievably popular where i live. a lot of girls around here (some of my own friends included) get plastic surgery for birthday and graduation presents, and many get procedures done at a fairly young age—i know several girls who got nose jobs or boob jobs when they were in high school.

I would never say never depending on the procedure I mean if it was for an emergency because of an accident then I’d have it but right now I don’t feel I’d like it but you never know what the future might hold so you should never say never.
