    Default Reality TV Increasing Plastic Surgery!?

    I was watching the Morning show this morning (pfft), and apparently reality tv is increasing young people wanting plastic surgery, think that if they get this one thing fixed their entire life would be better. I think this is absolute cr@p. I am a teenager myself, and I would never consider putting some plastic in my body just so i could look better. I would much rather spend the money on something that was important, like on my dog or my horses, or going back to New Zealand for a holiday! This type of stuff is ridiculous.What are your thoughts on teenage girls thinking about plastic sugery at the age they are at?

    No surgeon would perform plastic surgery on a underage person unless it was for betterment of life. ie say scaring from an accident or nose wall collapsed.

    My cousin has a breast agumentation done at 19, she was flat chested, not just a little flat. She isn't Dolly Parton or anything and doesn't show them off. she is just much more comfortable in herself now though.

    So imo, plastic surgery has its place, pure asthetical indulgence and warped body image type surgery does not.

    There are a lot of teenage girls who do think that way. IMO rather than spouting off asking what's wrong with them we should be focusing on telling them how they are right and helping their confidence.

    We live in a world driven by money, fashion and celebrities. It's really no surprise that there has been a huge increase in instances of cosmetic plastic surgery.

    Although I do believe that those who need it to look 'normal' again after an accident - I can't think of a better term so please forgive the way I've put this - should be entitled to it without having to pay thousands of dollars.

    A friends mother got breast cancer and had to have one removed. She lapsed into depression shortly after, because she didn't feel that she was herself. She had a breast augmentation and now operates as she used to.

    Hell, I've considered it more than a few times when I'm feeling low about myself. I'm sure others have too.

    I would use it to improve my health, but ONLY then. Or, maybe if it was the same thing Rebec's cousin had done, but only for that reason. and Rebec- that cat-woman is scary. Did you know that she had all of that done ON PURPOSE?! She had it done so that he husband/boyfriend would want to be with her again- just because he liked cats.

    I didn't know she did it to win a man back, I thought she was just addicted. Donatella Versace is another, Priscilla too.

    I must admit, I've thought about it. We live in a society where we're told we have to be a certain size with certain hair and certain skin and certain size breasts and certain features or else men - and other women - won't like us.

    I just really wish magazines etc would stop airbrushing pictures and making us all feel like crap! And I also wish celebrities would stop lying - the ones who always say things like "oh, no I don't work out and I eat whatever I want, and I just wash my face every night and drinks lots of water"! As if they don't spend hours every day exercising and not eating and going to their personal hairdressers and beauticians!!!

    I'd look awesome all the time too if I had someone following me around every day cooking for me and dressing me up!

    I know personally a friend of mine who wants plastic surgery when she is older. She is thin and medium busted, but she wants liposuction and breast enlargements. I have no idea why she wants it done, she is BEAUIFUL, & I am not just saying that!

    Some girls are insecure and they need to be told how beautiful they are.
    Because, everyone is beautiful in their own way - EVERYONE!

    I myself? I am tiny in my bone structure and so skinny I sometimes feel insecure about it. To add to that, I am small-busted which to many is horrendous <rolls eyes>

    I have days when I feel like crap about myself, but who doesnt, like seriously?

    Their are things that can change - for example, as C&B'sMum said, why cant we stop the airbrushing crap? ANY girl will feel bad about herself if they look at a model with huge hips, a skinny waist and busting cleavage! Instead of turning the world into a big "sexy people" thing, we should try to let everyone and anyone know they are beautiful in their own way and dont need to change!

    I think it is sad that women feel they need to live up to some unobtainable body image to be popular, find love, have a wonderful life.

    Surgery for deformity and accidents is another matter.

    My preference is to grow old disgracefully. I have earned every wrinkle, every stretch mark, every scar but I do (or did) hide grey hair....go figure. Told my kids they gave me every one and if I was pissed off with them I would point to one and do some story about it. Then it got to pointing to a patch of them lol.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    I agree Di. I feel I am very lucky to have a husband who loves me exactly the way I am. Mind you, I do dye my hair, and I very rarely go anywhere without makeup on (it makes me feel good). I really don't think I would ever actually go through with any plastic surgery (unless it was necessary - not cosmetic) simply because I couldn't justify the cost of it. All I want to be is healthy and take good care of myself. I think it's more important to be beautiful on the inside (although being beautiful on the outside would be nice too!)

    I know a lot of beautiful girls who are vain, self-obsessed, stuck up b*tches. Most of them are so insecure about themselves that they spend most of their time being mean & rude to other women to make them feel better about themselves.

    Well said Di.

    I am actually really saddened to see some members here stating they have thought about it at one time or another.

    The world is a sick place, but only if you bow and bend to the whims of idiots. I don't watch TV, I don't read magazines, I couldn't give a rat's bum what someone else is doing or what they look like. I mean, who cares, seriously???

    I strongly believe that as a woman the only opinion that matters concerning myself and appearance etc is what I think, not what the rest of the world might try and brain-wash me with.
