6. Breaking the stigma can be a healthy thing to do.
Are you one of those people that like checking celebrity news and their whereabouts? Then you’ll know how sometimes the media focus on that secret boob job a former child actress got. Or, how much Botox they are using. It makes you realize how much having any procedure to change your appearance is taboo. In a normal society away from celebs, plastic surgeries need to be accepted more. At least, more than what the media wants you to think. This man has a healthy way to see things more acceptably. “Here’s the way I look at it. Would I still think someone was attractive if they were born with the post-surgical look? Would I be thinking in my head, “Man, she’s ugly.” or would I find that person attractive?
Chances are I’d find them attractive, and so I wouldn’t care if she had surgery just to make herself look better. It’s one thing to be addicted to the surgery and another to have it done to make yourself feel pretty. So what if I found out she had work done? I have some opinions that I’m fine with but know it’s not all that “socially acceptable,” and this is along those same lines. The fact she feels comfortable enough to mention it to me with all the stigma means she trusts me, and I like that, and it makes me feel good. If my kids ended up being ugly b*******, I’d love them all the same. I mean, I’d tell them to work their butts off compared to their good-looking colleagues, but I’d still love them.”
You know you have found your partner for life when they won’t judge you for who you are. Your best friend will be loyal to you until you die. It is crucial that no matter what you want, you have people who respect your wishes. That goes double even if they might sound a little bit crazy. Because at the end of the day, you are the owner of your body. And you are the only one that can choose what they want to do. If it’s having 100 surgeries to look like Kim Kardashian, so be it. Just remember to be sure that’s what you want to be. Once you choose to change how you look via plastic surgery, there’s no way back.
SidewaysGate follows his own road by disagreeing with everyone else by saying: “I’m going to disagree with most of the men here and say I would have absolutely no problem with my partner doing this as long as they took the proper precautions and went to a respected doctor and had long consultations on what would and wouldn’t work. There are lots of complications that can come up, but if she’s willing to risk them, so am I. People are referencing Megan Fox a lot. I have no problem with how she looks now. She’s still hot.”
I’m sure everyone has felt at one moment in their life a little bit jealous of people who are attractive and flawless without one single surgery on their face or body. Yes, life can be unfair with some of us, but that’s what plastic surgery is all about, right? Well so far in this list we have seen many types of points of view about this topic. Some experiences that might convince you to change your mind about it. Why? Because that’s how we humans are! We evolve and change our minds all the time (although I know some don’t want to accept it that easily)
So here we have user kekekekekekekeke giving us another perspective on the whole ordeal, making us think in the “why not” of this whole ordeal. “ugh I hate it when people always comment on how plastic surgery is ‘unfair’ because those people just bought their beauty with wealth Well… you know what’s unfair??? the naturally beautiful people who can stay up all night and eat the most unhealthy s*** and stay skinny and have the nicest skin ever OMG. If one can work hard and spend a little money on making themselves look better, why the f*** not?!?!?!”
Studies show how social media can make people depressed and insecure by their looks. That is why so many people are getting or contemplating plastic surgery. It is a big concern that people feel so bad about themselves because of the internet. Then, the same internet urges them to change everything about themselves. This is why you should talk to someone before you take the plunge to plastic surgery. More importantly, talk to a therapist or someone to help guide you into the best decision for you. If surgery is the one that will be the game changer in your life, then go for it.
But you also need to remember to have balance. Overdoing it won’t do much. It might end up turning heads for the wrong reasons. Sure, if you feel beautiful after many surgeries and thousands of dollars, then they can stare all they want. Boolean_sledgehammer makes a good point that is just loving yourself the way you are and learning to do so might be a good start. “To me, people who have had an overabundance of plastic surgery often end up looking bland, featureless, and utterly forgettable. I like uniqueness. I like imperfections. These are the things that make you stand out. Having a “perfect” nose, in my opinion, does not. I can’t fault someone for wanting to alleviate their insecurity, but I’ve found that the “physical ideal” that people strive for is often anything but.”
When answering questions on the internet, it is always a good idea to do an auto inspection before saying anything, so this rant by Whisper is by far the most epic one yet: “A lot of shockingly bad answers here from hypocritical men. Everyone likes pretty, by definition. That’s because pretty is defined as “the appearance that you like.” Many people start with this refrain of “shallow shallow shallow” when they talk about cosmetic surgery, not because they don’t like the results, but because they don’t want to appear “shallow shallow shallow” by caring too much about appearance…
But middle-to-upper-class people see appearance as something mutable and configurable, which can be chosen, something that you have. Judging someone based on it is like judging them on how they dress; it’s a bit weird to attach too much importance to it, but it tells you something about people’s taste and how much effort they are putting in. I am pre-surgery (except for breast implants because they can’t seem to make them look and feel quite right yet). If someone has the nerve to decide that they want a change and then follow through on it, and the competence to amass 5 to 15k in spare cash, that tells you a lot more about them than someone who just got lucky in the genetic lottery.”
Relationships can be complicated sometimes. One falls for someone because of their character and even more if they are physically attracted to each other. It doesn’t matter if the other person thinks they are not hot. It is always a plus when the other person disagrees about it. Why? Because you know it’s the real deal. If it’s serious enough, it can turn into a beautiful relationship that might stay together for many years to come or for the rest of their lives. But what if the other person has a minor obsession that they can not get over, especially when it comes to how they look?
Smugcaterpillar sadly had to move on because of this, so this is a cautionary tale that people need to be checking on. “My soon-to-be-ex-wife was sort of infatuated with plastic surgery. While I understand the desire for beauty, it was a constant trigger for us to bicker. While by no means a ten, she’s not ugly. She was obsessed with her chin and wanted an implant. It still does, actually. I think it’s super creepy. I find confidence sexy. Plastic surgery implies the opposite for me. Also, it seems like it tends to lead to things like this. That being said, more power to ya if that’s your thing, to each their own, etc.”
