I feel like plastic surgery is just another form of body modification. If someone wants to do it, well then let them do it. It's their body after all, everyone wants their own types of confidence booster. I for one haven't had any type of plastic surgery but I am definitely not against it if that's what someone wants to do.

If it is to fix your appearance if you had an accident then I have no problem with it, but if people use it too look better because they are that self conscious then go for it, as long as it's not my money they use
I think its ok to get treatments for your SKIN but not implants. (aka acne laser surgery, stuff like that.) And if you are deformed and want it, awesome! But as for people just trying to look 'hotter'. Yuk. They seem to age worse...
I don't agree with cosmetic surgery, but I fully support reconstructive surgery. I plan on getting a correction surgery on my breasts since they are considered deformed (AKA tubular breasts), and I'm sick of them looking they belong to a 12 year old when I'm 23.
Ask all the women who get boob jobs in order to be desirable to men or to enhance their careers or movie roles. Even men get implants these days. Mickey Rourke and Heidi Montag both look awful. Sure made them have a bad day. Still I would love to do my nose.
I have mixed feelings on it. I'd be a hypocrite if I said, "No! No! No!" because I've been surgically altered. It wasn't vanity, though, and it wasn't technically "plastic" surgery as usually defined. My birth defect caused my bones to grow like crazy, so my head would have resembled a watermelon by early youth without the pioneering procedure my doctor developed for it. I'm incurable (not fatal, though, either), but the effect was largely suppressed. I look normal to the eye, though I can't wear normal hats.
Okay, so dealing with your likely meaning: my feeling is that it should be legal, at least within reason (no unnecessary amputations, for example...). Should people do it? Well, if they have a condition like mine (or others that mess with appearance), sure! A friend of mine as a deviated septum that visibly alters her face, and is eager to get the surgery, and I support her.
What about people with no defects? No injuries? I recommend against it. Even the best surgeon's work slowly becomes obvious, as the person's face ages. They look inhuman, like a doll. Implants, if they're too large or poorly implanted, look like beach balls stapled to the poor woman's chest. I've seen celebs with modest ones, e.g. Alyssa Milano, and hers are pretty convincing. Something like that is fine for a woman who has self-esteem issues and is convinced this will fix them. She may learn another lesson, there, but that's up to her.
Personally, most people who do facial plastic surgery (PS) tend to look "worse" off. For me, I wouldn't mind having a PS after I give birth to my children, for a tummy tuck/liposuction. I would go to the gym to lose the pregnancy weight and all but I'd never IMAGINE myself living as a fat person. Helllll no. I'll leave my face alone, though.
If someone wants to fix something like a broken nose or a burn, of course there is nothing wrong with it. However, if it's some girl with a perfectly pretty and unique face looking to change her nose and lips so she can look like a "Tv beauty" then I believe they should really reconsider. Although there is nothing wrong with the surgery, it's always a bit dangerous and I find the risk of complications isn't worth the result. In the end, people will do what they want.
Humans enhance everything, it's what we do. We are the only species with the creativity to look at something and know with some work it can be better So why not. Given the chance I'd get rid of my oversized nose - the only facial feature I'm really not happy with
My opinion is that old fashioned cheesy 'I just want people to be confident about they way they are and embrace themselves with love etc.' Which I guess is kinda hypocritical of me since Im not exactly comfortable with the way I look, but I dont think I'd ever really change myself like that. I wouldn't make judgements/assumptions about people who have done it though. If their happy etc right? I just wish people didnt have to do that to be happy. :\
if they wanna change themself,go ahead..doesn't affect me in the slightest about what they do so why should i care? i mean jeez I'd like a nose job, maybe some abdominal freezing to later help get rid of baby pooch.
A lot of people do it to make THEMSELVES feel better about an insecurity, why deny them doing something that they wanna do to make them self happy.
