Pft like I need it!!!
Bel kjfdxcvuyjh8 Back · 17 years, 6 months ago
yeah, I'm great the way I am. without having crazy surgery that probably isn't safe.

I don't want it, I don't think I'd ever do it, I don't think it looks good for people, but I don't think it's nessisarly evil (it's like make-up. pointless, generally counter productive, and over done, but it's not evil)

Plus, there are situations like disfigurement, which it's not wrong in the least to have it...

I wouldn't have it for myself but I don't think it is evil. I just want to play the hand I was dealt. I wouldn't have hair transplants or take minoxidol either and I could use that more.

After seeing what they do during a nose job, or other plastic surgery, my only thought was "How can that be good for the body?" It's nasty. And in most cases people who have plastic surgery are compensating for a lack of self esteem.

Now, in cases of deformity, scarring, or trauma, it's prefectly viable, but just to get "the perfect body"? I don't think so.

well, i wasn't sure which choice could be considered for health reasons, bc they're not really *wrong* but they are a hindrance. for instance, if i had the money and the nerve, i would get a breast reduction. no doubt about it. i'm heading for serious back problems. as it is, my lower back aches like the dickens any time i lie down. but it hurts even more if i'm sitting up. i've found that when i lie flat on my back, my tits'll like, press against my throat and make it hard to breathe. and they're so heavy on my rib's like a vice. so i voted "other"
beth-pseudocanuck! Back · 17 years, 6 months ago
i hear ya. i'm hopefully headed in for a reduction sometime in the next year-ish. basically it's down to having the *time*.

and you know that since you have such severe problems, your insurance would likely cover it!!
Erica: movin' to Ohio!! Back · 17 years, 6 months ago
i don't have insurance
tygerlillie Back · 17 years, 6 months ago
hey if any of you have questions i had a reduction 2 years ago. It was the best decision i have ever made. so feel free to frumsg me or whatever. :)
sheryls Back · 17 years, 6 months ago
my sister's insurance finally okayed her reduction surgery - she's going to have 10 pounds removed. that's a whole lot of breast reduction. she'll feel and look a million times better. they hurt her back,they keep her from exercising, etc...
Chaya Papaya Back · 17 years, 6 months ago
no i totally understand...i have this icky keloid on my ear from a piercing gone awry and my doctor recommended me to a plastic i mean sometimes it's more necessary...and i have a friend who had breast reduction because they were totally messing up her back
*joolee* · 17 years, 6 months ago
I voted yes for one reason, and that is when people are in accidents or somehow become disfigured, as much as it is the natural course of events, most times getting things rebuilt or fixing what got broken or ruined is the only way of returning to a semi-normal life. For just middle aged women who want a boost or a tuck, I wouldn't agree with that, but for extreme cases, I voted yesh.

well, another case of internal morals vs external morals. my mom had plastic surgery done after the last bit of fibroids were removed from her breasts. i don't think that's wrong. but getting plastic surgery for myself certainly would be. i dunno, i believe that i was made with one body and that is how it should stay. no piercing, no tattoos, no dying, no surgery. don't ask about the orthodontic work that i had done as a kid because that just totally makes me into a hypocrite. whatever, maybe it's alright because i didn't *choose* to have orthodontic work done.

net result? wrong for me, right for other people.

i really think barring explicit medical reasons that you should learn to be content with what you have. just because you can change something doesn't mean you should.
Pacho Back · 17 years, 6 months ago
oh, and just to be *completely* hypocritical: i've seriously debated getting eye surgery done. not medically required; i'm within a step of legal blindness on my left. it would be nice to have my prescriptions even remotely close to each other, it's such a crisis whenever i need to get lenses cut
zil Back · 17 years, 6 months ago
I should send you one of my "hypocrite" shirts... heheh.
Rachel Beck · 17 years, 6 months ago
I've had wrinkles since I was 14, and I pick up a lot of tension in my face. Basically I feel as if my forehead never relaxes. I've been trying to find noninvasive ways (massage, meditation) to take care of it, but it has been occasionally tempting to think that there's something medically available that could force those muscles to take a break. That said, any injection that clearly derives its name from "botulism toxin" and that would impair the ability of my face to express emotion alarms me.

deformities, reconstructions because of accidents or illness, and in order to cause less pain or damage now or later in life, absolutely.(that includes orthodontics)
For self-esteem issues: only if everything else has been done. Sometimes after all the ineer issues have been dealt with and all the demons exorcised there are things that the body can't turn back (I'm thinking like loose baggy skin if you lose lots of weight). I think if you've worked real hard and made the inside pretty it might be ok to reward yourself as the final step
Sherpa · 17 years, 6 months ago
but it didn't state whether it was needed or cosmetic... that was needed after illness.
Andrea Krause Back · 17 years, 6 months ago
I tried to make it encompass both by saying "plastic surgery". Cosmetic surgery takes one route and reconstructive surgery takes another route so I felt plastic, as crude as it sounds, was the most neutral. :)
sheryls · 17 years, 6 months ago
i cant help it, i've got generally low self esteem, i'd do it in a heartbeat - esp. to remove cellulite. blech. and if there was a way to remove stretchmarks, i'd be there.
Andrea Krause Back · 17 years, 6 months ago
Yeah I'm probably with you. I want my boobs lifted and my tummy helped. :)

But I probably never will. Because I'm stingy. :)
sheryls Back · 17 years, 6 months ago
i'd have my boobs lifted, my nipples fixed, and all the cellulite removed from my butt/thighs area. the rest i could probably take care of myself.
