Do you think it s unfair when people have plastic surgeries?

I have a lot of friends that are doing it and I think in general it s making the standard higher so like you need yo get to it to stay on track.
It s like makeup it adds up points but it s permanent.
Like most of my friends did their nose, lips and sometimes even injections to their face and they do look better now lol. With a bit of makeup in the eye they become a good 7-8 on a scale. Which sucks because you can t appreciate people who are naturally good looking

  • There is no guarantee that it will make them happier in any real sense, there is no guarantee of the permanence of the effect and it costs them a decent amount of money that could be spent on something else. People who start out on the road of plastic surgery often continue down that road and it's a fine balance between improvement and going too far. Look at the end result of some of the numerous plastic surgeries that celebrities have had. They look like melted waxworks.

    Embrace your natural beauty. Your body doesn't need to be enhanced.

  • Lol, no I wouldn't say it's unfair, it's a personal choice and desirable circumstances (aka money) allowing them to do so.
    I think it's more sad than unfair that a noticeable number of your circle feel so negatively about their looks that cosmetic surgery is wanted

    • Well arabs are usually big on plastic surgery in general.
      I am not against the concept...
      But in general all theae surgeries are setting the bar even higher.
      Like theae instagram models as well with a butt and boob job and so on.

      I like it as long as it s still natural looking. Like if you have some minor details to alter but not completely changing your physique

    • Same 😊She's still amazingly stunning, they actually fit her face but she was lovely before that too

  • If the standard for beauty is to have perfection, than I think we are missing what true beauty is. Also, who's to say one's standard for beauty is the same as the rest of ours? There is a reason why plastic surgeons get so much money for what little they do. I mean I believe if you want to feel better about yourself or if you want to have cosmetic surgery because of defects, than that is understandable. However, there is a problem when you start buying into the, "perfection" anecdote. There is no such thing as "perfection" the way society would want us to believe. As well, perfection (if there is such a thing) is subjective. Maybe you don't look like so and so. But why would you want to look like someone else anyhow? You won't get treated like yourself, you'll get treated like that other person. Your personality won't come through because you'll be at the mercy of your looks. Looks change no matter how much structure alterations you get, age catches up to all of us. But, your personality will be relatively the same. Our bodies weren't meant to be tampered with like this either. I have better things to use my money for.

  • I don't think it's unfair. Their bodies, their choices. That said, the surgeries don't make their bodies better, per se, but just more to their liking.

    Don't even worry about being on track or not. There's no track to be on or off in the first place.

    • Jack of all trades then, huh? I understand the mentality. Do your best in everything. But sometimes the sacrifices you have to make to beat others may not be worth it.

    • Anyway, as far as plastic surgery is concerned, there's quite a few reasons to steer clear from it. It can go horribly wrong, repairing or reversing any damage isn't that easy, it costs quite a bit of money and recovery hurts like a bitch. Personally, I'd advice you not to take it unless there's something seriously wrong with the way you look and you reLly, really need it. Taking those risks and bearing those costs just to out class some women in today's beauty standards is just laughable.

  • Nothing is unfair in this world with cut-throat competition. If you can get surgeries and live happily with it , and if other people like it , then it's wonderful. What about doing a surgery to your chin? Have you lost interest?

  • Meh. Do the people necessarily look that much better?

    I could get a hair transplant for example. But I'd just look more plain and generic. Some facet of beauty involves self acceptance, it involves inner work.

    Women look at me when I'm feeling good. They don't give a shit otherwise. So I don't think it's all about physicality.

    • How do you think those alterations would help you? Why do those girls do it

    • I don t think it s wrong to sort off perfect little flaws if you can why still maintaining your actual physique.
      Aka not become a complete new person.
      But some changes just make you look fresher and smoother. Like people will noticr you look better without really knowing what you did

  • If they look good then they look good. Whether it's natural or not is not even distinguishable for the most part. It's irrelevant for that reason. I don't really attach a stigma to plastic surgery. But yeah plastic surgery becoming the norm is raising the bar of beauty standards. I don't look at is as cheating though. Cheating what? I mean some people aren't born with the best features. If those people want to be attractive and look like someone who was born attractive, then who are we to tell them they can't or think lesser of them? They just want to enjoy the same benefits of being attractive. If they got the plastic surgery done correctly, then they are going to enjoy those same luxuries that attractive people have. So essentially they are the same. I mean you could compare this same scenario to a fat chick who got skinny and fit by extreme dieting and exercise to be on your level.. Which is naturally thin.

      I am not saying they shouldn t...
      I am just saying it s unfair to the general crowd cause mainly most peeps are just average and fat to work evem harder to keep up the standard.

  • No, it's very fair, because it affects only their own bodies, which is theirs to do anything they want.

  • Why would I think it's unfair? I won the genetic lottery what cost them tens of thousands or more dollars and time I got for free. You got plastic surgery? Great I was born this way *thumbs up*

    For those of us who were blessed to not need plastic surgery be glad you don't need surgery to look better ( talking to you Archy ) because it's expensive and you could end up looking like this.

    And what they have to pay for you were born with, which already makes what you have better.

  • unfair that people spend a shitload of money on something which is risky and more often than not doesn't even really make a difference for other people or even looks worse in the end?

    no. you could say it's unfair that some people naturally fit better into our beauty standards than others, but nature has never been about fairness. If they feel the need to force their way into them with plastic surgery... okay, I don't like or support that (as you know lol) but it's their body and their life, so whatever makes them happy.

  • I don't really understand why it would be unfair? If someone gets a nose job, and I have no idea or even if I do, it's not going to change my perception of them because ultimately it is who they are which will determine if I like this person as a friend or for a relationship, not how much work they did or did not get done. It also does not make me feel like the standards have been set really high, because they had to get surgery to get what some people have naturally. I'm not hating on that, it's just, you know that's not genetics or make-up or working out super hard or whatever. I feel more of the pressure when I'm up against people who are just naturally flawless because they literally woke up like that, not underwent surgery to get there.

  • I think the majority of people don't like the way plastic surgery looks, so I don't think it makes the standard higher. Who wants to play with big, fake hard tits with obvious cut lines under them, you know? How many people are into big, fake alien-looking lips and blatantly fake or Michael Jackson-looking noses--people who want to date porn star-looking chicks? I have never seen a woman or a man who has had work done who didn't look odd af. I always wonder why they don't see what 75% of the population sees when they look at other people who had work done or when they look in the mirror after they get it done.

    Natural almost always beats fake, but mainly when your natural is good enough (which, many times, it is). You look like you don't need surgery at all. Don't be one of those people who doesn't see what everyone else sees and butcher yourself. And I also think having plastic surgery done says a lot about your personality and mentality, and none of what it says is really that attractive, to me.

    • ^ This !
      Natural beauty beats any standards. Plastic surgery is terrible for the health, and looks terrible very fast. Natural beauty may attract less people, but when you aren't fake, you will attract people that happen to be more true. :p

  • Yeah I get you. It's like, they now look so much better than you and is considers hotter or on par with you when they had to have themselves altered just to keep up with your looks, and now you look mediocre because of them.

    Thank god for my Natural god given beauty:

  • No, not really. If they're willing to go through surgery and pay that amount of money for stuff, then meh, good for them and whatever. Not unfair at all since it's not like you don't have the same choices. They just decided to go for it and you didn't, but nothing about it was unfair.
