Plastic Surgery- What's Your View?

Fri Jun 23, 2006 3:26 pm

There's been threads where people have asked if you had some done, but now I'm gonna ask: What's your view on this?

HAVE you had some done? Would you or are you planning to? What would you say if your girlfriend/boyfriend came up to you and said they wanted something done?

I'm currently considering getting some major work done. Up until now, I've only had "necessary" work done- and soon, I'll have some scar removal (all medical)- nothing pure cosmetical yet.

i think it's fine- as long as whoever gets it does it for HIM/HERSELF! There's a reason why plastic surgeons won't touch you with a bargepole if a woman tells him she wants boob implants because her boyfriend thought it'd be nice  Wink

So... if it makes you feel better, why not.

Your turn  Wink

I think if it takes thousands of dollars of surgery just to make yourself feel better about yourself, then you need to take a look at your priorities.

I think plastic surgery is only justified in extreme cases, for example after a bad accident which leaves scars, or for illness or genetically caused problems. But only to look better? Not justified IMHO. But it's not my money after all, so everyone is free to do what (s)he likes.

I have seen where 'beauty' comes from the real confidence a person has. And confidence is not a physical attribute. Therefore, if you use physical means to instill confidence in yourself, stop trying.

If you already have that confidence, and you find yourself looking for 'touchups', then go ahead and do it.

Of course. And even surgeries like gastric bypass have seemed to become a fashionable way for the obese to lose weight, while it used to be a last resort for the people who just couldn't lose weight for one reason or another.

And as for plastic surgery to the face, unless it is done really well, it is SO noticeable. I look at pictures like this and just laugh.

Go get one only if you absolutely have to. Scar removal, skin transplant, any plastic surgery that is related to a medical condition or is absolutely necessary is perfectly fine for me. Surgery out of vanity or just to make yourself feel better is not.

I'd still not approve of that in that case if it was for vanity reasons. However, if it is a touchup after previous reconstructive surgery (e.g. scar removal for a scar that was the result of some kind of accident), then I'd personally approve.

Only if it is needed after an accident or something like that.

I had some but it was after corrective Jaw surgery. From 4th grade till I a senior in College, I wore braces. My jaw had been reshaped so I could bite straight down. I never ate corn on the cobb or steaks. Corn had to be cut off the cobb and steak had to be cut into baby sized bits so I could chew it. Took forever to eat.

They repositioned by jaw changing it from underbite and left leaning to straight but that put my chin off to the right so they cut it and rebuilt it where it would look good. Couldn't solids for 6 weeks.

This was an optional surgery. But I had worn braces for most of my life by then and was not going to let it all lapse so I had the cosmetic part.

Now I can eat steak and corn on the cobb. And in Japan...not eating a steak would be torture.

Only if there is a medical need. Otherwise I'm happy just the way I am. I am human, therefore I am bound to have imperfections and those imperfections are what make me distinct from others. Unless it's a fatal imperfection, I'm not inclined to mess with it.

I see no need for plastic surgery, except in cases where it's necessary for medical purposes.

If someone wants to have it, that's their perrogative, but I would agree with Newark777 that it shows that that person has their priorities messed up.

I don't know... I know someone who's had small, flat breasts her entire life. She hides herself, and even though she's 23, she's never taken her clothes off in front of anyone. Apart from that aspect, her confidence is great. She had her breasts done last year, and since then, she's been so much happier- I'm just happy for her.

I'm not doing this for a confidence boost or out of vanity either (well... somewhat... what kind of cosmetic/plastic surgery isn't out of some sort of vanity?)- I'm doing this because I think it'd look great and go well with the rest of my body- to me, what I want fixed is just an imperfection. I won't be anywhere near perfect when I'm done, but I'll have something fixed that I've hated for years  Wink

Actually, some people who have a physical defect, even when it's not really one, tend to focus on it so much that it basically ruins their confidence, social life and even life itself, in some cases.

I have known a guy whose ears were a little angled outward, it wasn't too bad, but the guy focused so much on it became a psychological thing. He didn't feel good in his head just because of that thing.
He had two options: Go through long and expensive therapy with a shrink to try and overcome it, or get a simple surgery.

He got the surgery and now he feels great about himself, his confidence is back and all.

I reckon there are people who'll get a plastic surgery for anything, and push it a little.

I think plastic surgery helps fixing the mind more than making the body looks better, but if it makes people feel better about themselves and improves their life, why not.
First, they have to ask themselves if it'll really improve it though.

Most of us don't have any slight deformities we're ashamed about, so I guess we'd have to be in the skin of someone who has to get a real unbiased opinion, but in the end, it's really just a mind thing.

I few of our older lady clients have had face lifts, and the problem seems to be that once they've had one, when things start loosening up again they have another one, so after the 3rd one they end up looking rather Oriental.

The concept of growing old gracefully is lost on some people.

I have been debating this for a while now. I have a few reminders of a troubled youth on my face-scars from past adventures and some from acne. While I don't seem to have trouble attracting girls, I feel self-conscious about it, especially when I'm close up with someone. One dermatologist quoted me 1,000 dollars to laser resurface my face, which for me is quite expensive, but I figure I have my whole life ahead of me with my face and money can be replaced.

It’s interesting I read in these posts an obvious contradiction. People state that if some deformity is caused by a previous accident undergoing some procedure is acceptable, while purely for vanity it is not. But fixing an injury oftentimes is for vanity as that person has changed, though naturally by the body's healing mechanisms, but the person wants to return to their original state.

Suppose hypothetically that someone is naturally endowed such that they deviate from the norm of the human form. For example an individual is born with deformities to their face, while they are completely functional and such they are evidently different; should this person accept his/her self, or change to be accepted socially? Could you possibly imagine a life where you are frequently stared at, ridiculed, whatever by the public at large, based only on your minor differences; to simply accept this life seems difficult.

That is completely understandable, along with the people who have been victims of accidents. My view is referring to the people who say, "My nose is a bit too big," or, "Why work out, I can just get some lipo."

I'm not going to stop anyone from doing it or judge anyone who does, I just feel it is a complete waste of money. But if that's how you want to spend it, that's your right.

But even your example of the nose can illustrate a facial abnormality. At what point does a small bump or general irregularity become unacceptable to society? Another consideration is to what members of society. Someone could have an upward curve at the tip of the nose, that is only noticed and ridiculed perhaps by those he feel compelled to be judgmental on such petty matters. This complicates matters in that one must consider for their minor imperfection am I doing it for acceptance from these types of people? But everyone is judgmental to a certain extent; when does a difference in the nose become such that it is evident to all, perhaps even a distraction, to not only the overly judgmental types but to almost everyone?

I think if you feel a large nose makes you unacceptable to society, you have problems. We were all born the way we are, and if you can't accept that, then you have have problems.

Some people are attractive, and some are just plain ugly. It's a fact of life, and you have to deal with it. If major surgery makes you feel better about yourself, so be it, but it says something about your self-confidence.

I originally illustrated with an extreme example, to which you seemed to agree. The point is when does this extreme become simply a minor variation that requires no change at all?
What I was saying is:
An extreme abnormality might be unacceptable to most of society where as you move across the spectrum from extreme to some idea of "perfect" the level of acceptability increases.

Quoting Newark777 (Reply 17):

This contradicts what you said earlier; I not sure where you really stand here. But what I feel personally, as you seem too as well if you have a small bump in your nose or it slightly crooked that's just what defines you and you shouldn't change it. Even still if your nose is not "perfect" there will be people who will observe such and may not accept you for what you have.

RE: Plastic Surgery- What's Your View?

Sat Jun 24, 2006 5:07 am

I can speak from experience about plastic surgery.

Since birth, I have had 20-30 surgeries to rebuild my face (which was missing many of its skeletal structures due to Treacher Collins syndrome, a rare genetic craniofacial disorder). I was born with no ears (no outer or middle ears and no ear canals), no palate, no chin, no orbital (eyesocket) rims, and no cheekbones.

All the surgeries were part plastic, part functional. Totally new outer ears were built in multi-stage surgeries using rib and pelvic skin grafts, my mandible and maxilla were rebuilt (and often wired shut) using rib grafts and screws and plates, and my palate was closed. Also, rib grafts were used to build bony rims for the eyesockets and cheekbones (zygomatic arches). While restoring a normal (or near-as-normal-as-possible) appearance, these surgeries also restored some function to certain parts. For example, while the "outer ears" are purely cosmetic (to restore a "normal" appearance) and my midface and cheeks and eye sockets were rebuilt to a normal appearance, my jaws were rebuilt in attempts to restore normal function as well as appearance, and my palate was closed to keep stuff from going up into my nose (and improve speech), among other functional purposes.

Thus my plastic surgeries, performed by dedicated craniofacial teams of specialists (at two children's hospitals in Indianapolis and St. Louis, MO), were dual-purpose: They restored a normal appearance and quality of life, but also restored normal (or near normal as possible) function to my face.

In this world, craniofacially-disfigured children and adults need all the plastic surgery and other medical and other help they can get in order to live normal, functional lives and be accepted by a society that all too often tends to judge according to the external appearance.

So, while my lifetime of plastic surgeries has made me the "Bionic Man" to all who know me, they have also given me a decent, normal life.

That's usually because people who get it done are going overboard  Wink I'm not getting huge knockers, I'm just sick of the shape of my own- a lift would only make them look smaller, so I'd rather have an implant (that will, by the way, be implanted behind a muscle- you won't be able to see that they're "fake", or feel it either  Wink).

Truly justifiable plastic surgeries that are physiologically beneficial to the health of the patient are a no-brainer. Breast reduction made a big difference for my ex. Her chronic back pain and disk problems literally disappeared overnight. There's plastic surgery to correct functional damage due to trauma...car crashes, dog bites, burns, etc. Then there's plastic surgery to correct congenital defects...malformed jaw, cleft palette, webbed or conjoined fingers, etc.







Other plastic surgeries that may seem cosmetic and frivolous in most cases may actually be necessary for a patient's psychological well being. These may include the removal of excess skin in someone who's lost significant weight following stomach reduction surgery and the flattening of a child's protruding ears.





No one should question the necessity of these types of plastic surgery.

However, to alter ones appearance simply to "get more guys/gals" or to "try something different" isn't quite good enough to me.





Those who are addicted to plastic surgery due to severe forms of Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) or Body Integrity Identity Disorder (BIID) have legitimate psychological diagnoses. For many of them, it's too late to correct the physical damage done by too much elective plastic surgery, but aggressive counselling and medication regimens can help keep their disorders in check.

Generally, I have nothing against plastic surgery. In fact, I admire ones who went to such surgery for their courage.

As for me, I wouldn't go if it is avoidable. The fact that most surgeries are painful is just enough for me to run away as fast as I can from it.

That's usually because people who get it done are going overboard I'm not getting huge knockers, I'm just sick of the shape of my own- a lift would only make them look smaller, so I'd rather have an implant (that will, by the way, be implanted behind a muscle- you won't be able to see that they're "fake", or feel it either ).

Hope it all goes well for you!  Smile
I personally don't have a problem at all with implants so long as they are not rediculous! A nice C or D cup is always fun  Smile

Plastic surgery is one of the greatest examples of how Western medical care has advanced since the 19th century. It's unbelievable, we were still trying to conquer Polio then and today people get their faces re-done. I think you should get a psychiatric evaluation before plastic surgery, but I whole-heartedly agree with the whole concept.

My family has a long history of getting awful, huge bags under their eyes as they grow older and I'm sure I will too (I already have them to a limited degree). My father, who does a lot of his work in sales (appearances are very important in that line of business), has undergone a blephroplastic (basically an eyelid-lift) procedure to correct this. For him, it wasn't a matter of "Will I become a perfect 10 after this?" No, it was "Will my eyes look like someone of my age?" When you go into plastic surgery with a clear insight on yourself and your body, it's a great tool.

Why? It's her body. If she doesn't feel good because of something on her body, who are you to tell her that she can't fix it?

Because for me, if someone does plastic surgery just because she thinks she looks horrible (although the doesn't), then there is no reason to do so. People who for the sake of vanity do plastic surgery are for me fake. If someone looks already good, and still wants to get something done, then I don't see the reason to do this, because you just might make it worse.

Quoting AsstChiefMark (Reply 34):
Truly justifiable plastic surgeries that are physiologically beneficial to the health of the patient are a no-brainer. Breast reduction made a big difference for my ex. Her chronic back pain and disk problems literally disappeared overnight. There's plastic surgery to correct functional damage due to trauma...car crashes, dog bites, burns, etc. Then there's plastic surgery to correct congenital defects...malformed jaw, cleft palette, webbed or conjoined fingers, etc.

Other plastic surgeries that may seem cosmetic and frivolous in most cases may actually be necessary for a patient's psychological well being. These may include the removal of excess skin in someone who's lost significant weight following stomach reduction surgery and the flattening of a child's protruding ears.

Now those are valid reasons to get plastic surgery.

I've seen and spoken to her once. She didn't look as bad as that pic, but she did look very strange.

It's nothing like a complete face lift, just some removal of excess skin on the face and breast augumentation (SP? Boob implants, damnit )- and, no they won't become "huge"

Jap, I am positively sure you look fine just the way you are and don't need any surgery. But lets get a second opinion. Take some pictures of the skin and your breasts and post them on here. Trust me, WE will certainly make the decision for you, and you won't have just a second opinion, your sure to have about 30,000. On top of all of that, your post will be the most viewed and the most replied to EVER on a.net! Now, thats got to be some kind of destinction to have there.

HAVE you had some done?

Yup, three times actually. I was born with cleft lip (harelip) so I had one when I was a couple of months old, when I was 6 and when I was 14.
