I had LASIK, which was partially for cosmetic reasons.

It was functional too. Contacts were really hard on my eyes and I’m very active… But I also HATED the way those damn glasses hid my face. I think I look prettier without them, although they do look awesome on lots of people. No regrets for that one! 

Also, teeth whitening. It’s not really the same thing as a boob job, but I did whiten those suckers. 

I don’t have anything on my body that I would want to change… I just happened to luck out and like my various features, so I guess it’s not fair for me to judge anyone else too harshly. I haven’t been in their shoes… My niece (24 yrs old) got a boob job, and I think she looked way better before. They make her look heavier than she is (IMO) because she’s short, 5’2 maybe. But she likes it, so it’s ok by me.

I don’t think it matters if someone has had plastic surgery. I’m pro-body modification if it makes you happy, whether it be tattoos, piercings, or DDs. I don’t think there should be a stigma against altering one’s body to suit one’s preferences, and I believe it’s a stupid thing to judge against someone for. 

It’s sad that anyone feels the exterior pressure to change things like that but if changing them makes you happier with yourself and doesn’t do any serious harm (or at least doesn’t do any harm you’re not comfortable with) I really don’t see why it’s anyone else’s business at all.

I have not had plastic surgery but I think it is unfair to say you could not be friends with someone who did because you don’t have the same values. People have many reasons for getting PS and people have many reasons for their insecurities as well. You can’t look down on someone who is insecure about something and fixes it, just because you don’t share that same insecurity.

@bebero:  I see your point but honestly unless someone had a really prominant feature say like massive boobs would you seriously remember the size of someones breasts that you took a couple of classes with! My point with that was op seems to be bothered about someting about this girl since high school, if running into a past school pupil lends to starting a thread on a website…..

Sweet is a place to start with friendship, a nice person is someone you may take the time to get to know and learn if you personally find then interesting or funny etc.

 

@bebero:  seriously to say that someone “only” cares about their looks is silly, everone has feelings and interests, they may not be the same interestes as our own but are valid all the same. Who is to say this girl is not passionate about amimal rights? Pamely Anderson is if I remember correctly and Bridgit Bardo! , they are both sex symbols and all about the makeup,boobs etc and trade/traded on looks!

 

Every person has someting interesting about them! we dont have to like everyone but a girl with big fake boobs is just as good as you or me and may have outstanding values! its unkind to suggest otherwise without a valid reason.

I know plenty girls who got fake boobs, most because lack of confidence.

@ambergirl:  i’m not suggesting anything, you are. i said i don’t care if you care about your looks, but i’m not going to like you if you only care about your looks.

 

it is NOT true that everybody has something interesting about them. some people are just not interesting. they get up, go work a job they don’t like, come home, watch tv, have dinner, go to bed, and aren’t interested in anything else, don’t have hobbies, don’t cultivate their minds, etc. i’m not interested in being friends with someone like that, for example, no matter how sweet. or they do have a hobby which I find absolutely boring and uninteresting and just don’t feel like being friends with them.

 

i didn’t say anything about this girl specifically. i was talking about me an my reasons to befriend someone or not. 

 

btw, someone being an animal rights advocate, to me, is not a selling point. i couldn’t care less.

@bebero:  this could be a new thread! Everyone does have something interesting about them, it might not float your boat but their story will be interesting to someone.

the aminal rights was just an example, ie makeup and boobs does not mean thats the only thing you care about.

It would be a very dull world if we were all the same….

I think it’s a personal choice. I would have it in a heartbeat if it were financially possible. There are things about myself that I don’t like and probably won’t ever like that could be fixed with cosmetic surgery.

It seems like this discussion has taken a serious nosedive. OP, you created this thread about plastic surgery, but you’re now saying that you don’t want to be friends with this girl because of her personality…. all the while implying that people who get elective plastic surgery are shallow, ditzy people. I bet that girl wouldn’t want to be friends with you anyway, because you seem pretty judgmental and rude.

I don’t know.. there are a couole of procedures i want done (nose and boob job coincidentally lol ) I admit I used to be shallow though I don’t think I am anymore. I wish I could be so secure in my looks to judge others that fell the need to change or improve themselves.

Woof. This thread is a hot mess. Conclusions:

– OP probably WOULDN’T want to be friends IRL with some of the bees who posted (and the feeling is mutual)

– there are some very valid reasons for plastic surgery that all can seem to agree on 

– there are some body image/perception issues and that makes some of us sad, and some of us suffer from them. Lets blame men, yes? 😉 

– some people place ALL of their value in their looks, some of us think of ourselves as a total package inside and out, and some of us think beauty fades and what’s behind it really matters.  

 

Final conclusion: let’s all just love ourselves, and each other, a little more.

BEE OUT (drops mic)

My body my life! Your body your life! Im sure that miss ditz would probably find miss tomboy really boring. But to each their own.  Whatever makes people happy. Less judgment more hugs.

+1.

I’m planning on getting a breast reduction within the next few years and I’m open to Botox, lip fillers etc. as I get older.

I’d be pretty pissed if someone decided not to be friends with me as I was ‘shallow’ on the basis that I got a boob job/had Botox etc.

I don’t think cosmetic surgery is OK unless it’s to correct a deformity or injury.

I don’t demand my friends agree with me on that, but I’m not going to pretend that I support them going under the knife due to vanity. It’s a character flaw, which is way worse than a physical “flaw.”

To the folks on this thread who are trying to justify their cosmetic surgery by explaining how their bodies pre-surgery were so bad that they just couldn’t live with them: Have you ever thought about how that sounds to people whose bodies are like yours pre-surgery, and who previously thought that was just fine and normal?

There are so many body complaints on this thread that apply to my body. So many people who are straight-out saying that my body does not look right. That it looks so bad that they’d have to spend insane money cutting it up. If I ever caught myself saying something like that, I would hope that I’d have the awareness what a fundamentally bad sign it is.
