This is something touchy. It's easy to look at people who get cosmetic surgery done and have malicious, spiteful thoughts. If you think about it, however, and try to put yourself in their situation, it's not as black and white as you think it is. I don't consider myself in need of cosmetic surgery and I know a few ladies find me attractive, but I can still understand people who go for the surgery. There is nothing wrong with wanting to be attractive. There is nothing wrong with wanting to be happy and confident. When it comes to girls, especially, because we men are such visual creatures, a lot of emphasis is placed on looks. Many think they look horrible. Many look in the mirror and curse this feature or that feature. Is it so wrong to want to change that?
If it is because of insecurity, is the person just supposed to accept it instead? It may get there eventually, but it's a tough road to take and it may always be there at the back of your mind, eating at you. This road is not for everyone. A small thing such as this can be an incredible boost to self-esteem. It may change the person entirely and for the better, instead suffering through a gradual acceptance.
For those who are against it because the RESULTS are unnatural or the person ends up LOOKING unnatural, think carefully. Isn't that the fault of the surgeon or specific choices they made and not surgery itself? The gruesome pictures you see on the web are not the norm. There are many alterations that look very natural and becoming on a person. In this case, it is just about as natural as dyeing hair. Why is no one condemning that, then?
I'm not exactly FOR cosmetic surgery, but I'm not against a touch up here and there. Of course, excessive surgery is undesirable. :\0
