  • Nope. I think that it is gross, though.
  • I only see it as wrong if you don't need to do it. I don't think it's not worth it in the first place. I only see this surgery if it's only needed.
  • No !! I don't think it's wrong as long as you are doing it for yourself , not anyone else. If it's what YOU really want, go for it. Life is short.
  • If you're doing it for sheer vanity, then I think there are better ways to spend your money. I'm not going to say it is right or wrong, I mean, it's your body. But if you can't accept your self for who you are, inside and out, then I don't think you should be the person using money to fix it. If you were in a car-accident or something, I could understand, though. Or even people who get breast-reductions, I can understand that, too. I don't know why I think that's any different, but I can see that being more rational than getting implants...
  • No I think if it is needed either physically or psychologically it could be a good thing. If a person is scarred or feels really bad about themselvesand cosmetic surgery will improve their life I see no harm in having the procedures. I do not believe that young people should be undergoing the knife for vanity reasons.
  • Not at all. I don't think it is wrong to alter your body if you are being as safe and healthy as you can.
  • I always said that i dont want to grow old gracefully its boring and im not going downhill without a fight and if that means plastic surgery then so be it, so no it isnt wrong if you want it.
  • I don't think so. It has done a lot of good for people that need it, but I feel sorry for the people who are already beautiful and make themselves ugly with it.
  • No. Which ism not to say that all cosmetic surgery is right. But there are definitely some cases in which cosmetic surgery is definitely worth while - correcting congenital abnormalities or post-operative scarring, for example. I can draw no hard line between "good" cosmetic surgery, "ok" cosmetic surgery, and "bad" cosmetic surgery. They all exist, but it is a matter of into which basket any particular procedure falls.
  • That is totally up to the person. If you can afford it and want it, go for it. It should ALWAYS be offered to anyone who's been disfigured in any way in an accident or fire or something like that.
  • I don't think cosmetic surgery in and of itself is "Wrong", in fact in many instances cosmetic surgery can be highly beneficial to help correct major disfigurements and scarring that would otherwise stand in the way of a person leading a normal life. But cosmetic surgery simply for the sake of vanity, although I still wouldn't call it "Wrong", because it doesn't really harm others, does harm the person who chooses to get it by standing in the way of them becoming truly comfortable and well-adjusted with who they are. If someone is so obsessed with their natural appearance that they would spend large ammounts of money to go under the knife to "Correct" it, then their issues are clearly mental more than physical, and using cosmetic surgery as a way to relieve those self-image issues only harms them by standing in the way of resolving those underlying mental and emotional issues surrounding their appearance and even their identity as a person. So while it's not "Wrong" in any moral or ethical sense, it's not exactly a healthy choice to make. But hey, what a person does in the privacy of their own body is entirely their business, so if they want to make that choice, we have no right to stop them.
  • I don't think it is wrong in a sense, but I think it is wrong because it is all fake. None of what they get is real, so it may cause some self-esteem problems.
  • Vain perhaps, not wrong.
  • not wrong. it's the persons choice. but in ten years it wont matter, unless you get it done again.
  • It's and individual choice and it serves it's purpose, but like anything that is done to excess, it becomes a bad thing.
  • Its not wrong if it helps you feel good about yourself,but cosmetic surgery can become very addictive so dont go overboard.
  • It really depends. Speaking as a minority, I know there is a double sword when it comes to plastic surgery. You can get it, but who are you really emulating and is it worth it to give that example to your kids or other young ppl who will say, you loook so good? IF YOU DO get compliments, how do you feel honest about it?
  • In moderation I guess it's fine.
  • I do not think it is wrong. Cosmetic surgery, in reality, is to help those with serious external issues,in need of cosmetic surgery. People who have cosmetic surgery because they have "personal" issues such as they do not like their breast size or they hate their nose, or they think they are fat etc..I think they need to confront the issue within themselves before they look into cosmetic surgery. But the individuals who have suffered burns, have lost their teeth, those who have serious cosmetic difficulties I believe they are the ones in the right path towards seeking cosmetic surgery.
  • not at all. I am so happy because of it. I have had it and i am sure that i will have it again when i get older.
  • I think it takes away from the real person,makes them some ome they are not. Also some people take it to far and end up in trouble instead of looking good.
  • no i dont think cosmetic surgey is wrong because sometimes in life we have to make some correction or changes to improve our looks.
  • Yes, I do if it is to change oneself. Not if it is to get back to how one was.
  • Their body and their money. I don't exactly approve and I would never do it (except for medical reasons) but I think people should have that choice.
  • I would say its not at all wrong, may be as many said it would vary upon different individuals.
  • Whatever makes one feel better about themselves and doesn't infringe on anyone else's rights, I say do it.
  • It depends how far someone goes with it. I personally think that it is ok but in moderation. Not all the time.
  • Good thing if it is to correct disfigurement caused by accident or disease and will improve the quality of life, psychologically and/or physically. Bad thing if it is to "correct" bits that we don't like - it endorses the view that beautiful is as portrayed in (airbrushed) magazine pictures and in films. The availability of cosmetic surgery is an enabler in insecurity and lack of self esteem - were it not available for purely cosmetic requirements (some) people would not be so obsessed with their looks.
  • On the whole it's a good thing but I draw the line when old women start to shave because they have had so many face lifts that there pubic hair is now around the chin area! Grin..
  • It can be an awesome thing if it enhances your beauty to your satisfaction. However, you can see how it looks when someone is empty inside and no amount of enhancement will fill that void. Those people who keep going back for more look like department store dummies. Some of these 40 plus movie stars look frightful. Too much botox is awful too. But when done correctly, it is transformative. I like that thing they have now where you get a lift in 30 minutes and it changes your chin line and gets rid of the sag, that looks terrific.
  • It depends on the procedure. Anything that looks added on and over exaggerated NOT a good thing, Alittle lift or tuck or for birth defects GOOD
  • I find beauty in everyone, I believe were all just as we should be.
  • not really, take what you get, and be thankful for it
  • Well ask Colin Hendry(Ex pro fotballer in Scotland and england) he lost his wife last week to a botched plastic job. So much for vanity
  • In moderation it's okay, or if someone has been in an accident or has deep-seated insecurities about being flat-chested or something, but when it is just over- the-top and for purely cosmetic reasons then I'm not a fan. I hate seeing (though it's amusing) celebrities trying to knock thirty tears off their appearance with surgey, or women with big obviously fake breasts just done purely for glamour modelling etc.
  • Good thing....It's always nice to have the choice to change your appearance when your a Super Agent Spy like me.
  • why mess with perfection!! LOL
  • If it bolsters a person's self-esteem. . . .I see nothing wrong with it; so long as it's done by a BOARD CERTIFIED PLASTIC SURGEON
  • It's a good thing (picture children with cleft palates) that has(like most things) been over and mis used.
  • I say it's a good thing -- seeing as how I aim to become a plastic surgeon. +4
  • not a good thing - it never looks natural. I'll get on with my wrinkles and sagging skin, thank you very much.
  • A good thing when correcting a medical issue or something of that nature and a bad thing when having it done to create someones "idea" of looking "better".
  • Good thing generally. Bad thing if a person gets addicted to it.+4
  • its a bad thing. its just not natural and i like natural.
  • it totally depends on the reason for the surgery. i dont really see anything wrong with it.
