what is your opinion of cosmetic surgery ?
Advertisements [?]
and i mean those that are not health related.

from face lifts,nose jobs, breast implants, lipsuction etc.

personally i don't think i would ever get any of them. just watching the surgery get done makes me afraid to ever go through something like that especially if it's not needed for health reasons.

but i don't really have a problem with others doing it if they want to.

but i was thinking maybe we can have a bigger discussion on this such as your opinions on it personally and for others as i gave. and whether you think people can really be happy from getting something done. also there is an issue of some people getting addicted to it.

i think it's different for many people. i think for some peopel getting one thing done such as a nose job or breast implants could make them happy. but i think there are some who end up being addicted to it and can never be happy and they just end up looking really scary from getting all these things done to them.

so what is your opinion on this ?
