Plastic surgery is an extremely touchy subject that people have strong opinions about. While I understand the reasons behind plastic surgery, I’ve never felt the urge to get anything done myself and never will.
If I were to get plastic surgery, I would be insinuating that there is something wrong with the way I was born. While I’m far from perfect, I would much rather learn to accept myself than cosmetically change my appearance. I’m a huge supporter of natural beauty and plastic surgery goes against everything that stands for. I don’t wear a lot of makeup or spend a ton of time on my appearance because I believe that ultimately, it’s really not that important. So many people, girls especially, think that their appearance makes them valuable and worthy. If plastic surgery didn’t exist, girls would stop worrying about getting new boobs and spend time focusing on more important things. I know certain individuals feel that appearance is the most important thing, but if someone is going to negatively judge me based on my appearance without speaking to me, then they’re frankly not someone I want to be associated with anyway.
In addition to being unnecessary, plastic surgery is expensive and doesn’t always make someone look better (Joan Rivers or Heidi Montag, anyone?). Bigger boobs and a new nose are not the answers to your life problems, but will instead just be a temporary fix. An insecure girl who gets bigger boobs will still be the same insecure girl. She’ll just have bigger boobs.
While I know I might get a lot of hate for my opinion on plastic surgery, I’m comfortable with my decision to never go under the knife. If you do choose to get a procedure done, I just hope that you seriously think about it and make sure it’s something you really want. But then again, in the world of plastic surgery, it can always be changed again.
