    Why? We are just moving with the times. I believe that in maybe a hundred years plastic surgery will be a common procedure and much more widely available.

    it is a bit worrying. i'm not sure about a 'better' body; as long as it's in full working order, there is no 'better' to be had. however, if you're doing it to feel more comfortable or confident about yourself, then that's fair enough -
    if you have the money, then why the hell not! i think i would. nothing outrageous, i'm happy with what i look like usually, but bigger breasticles would be rather nice. yep.

    i don't care, to be honest.

    they're paying for it privately, so i don't see why it is any of my business. if they have the money and they want to spend it on carving themselves up, let them go for it.

    90% of cases they don't look much different anyway.

    If such things had not been invented, you (or anyone else who thinks likewise) wouldn't even have thought of it. And you'd probably be able to go on with your life with no problems.

    I'd add something beginning with "If it's as simple as "I don't like my nose/ears/breasts/whatever, so I'll go change it" then..." here, but I can't really find the words to express what I mean... I hate that.
    It' simply sad that you'd need to change physical appearance in a non-natural to be confident. Really sad.

    It's a bit sad if people are thinking of plastic surgery as the first option.
    But it is an option if you can afford it. It's when you can't afford it and have to scrimp, save, borrow, money to get some minor op that it's a bit sad. Especially when the op doesn't make a great deal of difference.
    I suppose the way to look at it is like any body modification, such as tattoos, or piercings. If you want to do it, and think it makes you look better in some way, then do it.

    thought of it? haha, im not planning on getting surgery any time soon!! though i stick to what i said before, if i had the money then i don't see why not. i wouldn't change any facial features because that's going a bit too far i think. & if i got something done then i wouldn't hide it from anybody. in fact if i got a boob job then i would make sure all my friends knew about it & had visual evidence.

    & what problems? :crazyeyes
    just because i'd contemplate getting bigger breasts if i was rich, doesn't mean I suddenly have issues..come on man, its 2004..!

    ive seen a couple of those shows.. 'Extreme Makeover' where the 'ugly' person gets cosmetic surgery, their wardrobe, hair, & body [through fitness training most of the time, may i add] all completely changed. most of them come out still looking like mingers [ahem, sorry guys], but they seem happy after being depressed for so long concerning the way they look. it's all tears & 'MOMMY I CANT BELIEVE ITS YOU'!

    if things eventually come down to having to have cosmetic surgery to make one happy & more confident. then i don't have a problem with that. it's their lives, their business, their money & if it makes them feel better about themselves at the end of the day, then bloody good for them.

    Really sorry, but I think you do. You are perfectly capable of liking yourself as you really are. If money is the only reason you don't do it, it's just the same as if you had done it. And what does "It's 2004" have to do with anything?

    And what happened to the poll? It's not even in the "previous polls" list anymore!

    It is very sad and I think it's a sign of society today. No wonder young girls have self esteem problems if they think surgery is the only answer for a 'perfect' body.

    IMO, the idea of the "perfect" body itself is the only thing to blame. "Top models", "beuty contests" and such. They aren't real. And then normal women want to be like them because they think they're "imperfect", when the "imperfection" is simply a natural characteristic.

    And I'm still wondering why that poll disappeared.

    I agree with the fact that if people think theyll be happier with the unnatural changes to their appearance, then it's their choice.

    But then i agree that we have all been given these looks and features and we dont have the right to change them unnaturally..im kinda split in the middle.

    Its bad that people feel they should do it because they are 'moving with the times', or peer pressure..thats like smoking, and it puts a risk to ones health for the sake of being 'cool'.

    Its silly

    er, read the thread son.

    & you're the one who has a problem with others getting cosmetic surgery. so thats a bit hypocritical. isn't it now.

    i do like myself the way i am. im not a minger. i'm not a beauty queen either, but i'm definitely not a minger. i just think if i could & had the money, then it would BE NICE to have larger breasts. i dont know if id go through with it. but thats something else. i don't have aproblem with others getting surgery. and i certainly don't think i have a problem either, for contemplating contemplating it!! so like i said, you're definitely not the one to be pointing the finger. ya get me.

    What part do you thing I haven't read? (This is an honest question)

    & you're the one who has a problem with others getting cosmetic surgery. so thats a bit hypocritical. isn't it now.
    Yes, I am that one. How is that hypocritical? :confused:
    i dont know if id go through with it.
    You didn't say this before, so sorry.
    i certainly don't think i have a problem either, for contemplating contemplating it!!
    You don't. But if, as you appeared to be saying before, only lack of money was stopping you from doing it then you would have a problem. A serious self-appreciation problem. I'm not saying this in a degrading(sp?) meaning.
    so like i said, you're definitely not the one to be pointing the finger.
    Honestly, I'm not pointing the finger. If it was only a few people, perhaps I would be. But in this case, I feel more like I'm suffocating.

    And please, don't use that "Ya get me" attitude.

    plastic surgery- yet another step in the process of dehumanisation

    unless it's necessary, all teenage girls who get it done should die and thats not a euphamism, just die silly wee girls.
