Plastic Surgery – The Pros and Cons

There are various beliefs, judgements, and opinions about plastic surgery. Some think it’s unnecessary and that those who are born with unwanted characteristics shouldn’t change themselves, but deal with it. Others believe that if they want something fixed or changed, they should do it because it’s their body and their money.

Ultimately, whether someone doesn’t like the way their nose looks, or they have a deviated septum and would like to get that fixed for reasons that are not cosmetic, these procedures occur often and most benefit from the surgeries they undergo. According to the American society of plastic surgeons, there are 14.6 million surgeries performed last year, including both invasive and minimally invasive. Whether the drive be due to aesthetics or due to an injury or genetic mutation, many people are jumping under the knife and spending big bucks to get these surgeries done. Should we shun these people or applaud them for making such a big decision in their lives?

First, we have to understand the difference between plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery. Plastic surgery is a general term that means: the process of reconstructing or repairing parts of the body, especially by the transfer of tissue, either in treatment of injury or for cosmetic reasons. For example, if someone breaks their nose in a car accident and must undergo plastic surgery to fix it, this would fall under this general category, or could be referred to as an non-elective plastic surgery.

Cosmetic surgery, however, is generally an elective surgery meaning it is not required but optional.

I believe there are both pros and cons to plastic surgery and I’m glad these surgeries are available to people who need them and/or want them. Here are the Pros and Cons, in my personal opinion, of going under the knife and having cosmetic or reconstructive surgery.

PROS 

Improved Self Esteem

Some people have insecurities that arise from disfigurement or other unlikable aspects of their appearance. This is a positive reason why plastic surgery is available. Many will feel better about themselves after having a procedure done which will improve their self-esteem and ultimately their lives. Especially if someone is born disfigured, they should be allowed to get it fixed.

Appearance

Cosmetic surgery can improve appearance. If there is a part of you that you don’t like, you can change it. But, be sure you have a loving support system of people who love you for who you are before making such a big decision. Beauty and Vanity are not everything, but it can help with quality of life.

Health

Depending on the reason for plastic surgery, some people may have health benefits through plastic surgery. For example, if someone needs a skin graft due to a burn, that will improve health. Someone who may have a deviated septum can also get relief from pain and proper drainage of the sinuses through plastic surgery.

CONS

Cost

Plastic surgery is very expensive. This is something to consider before going under the knife. Whole life savings are spent on cosmetic surgeries, so this is something that people should take into consideration before getting any cosmetic surgery done.

Physical Risks

There are many risks to physical appearance when undergoing plastic surgery. There are risks to having botched surgeries and bad results, so this is another thing to consider. Make sure you thoroughly research the doctor you’ve chosen before you make any decisions or deposits, because you don’t want to end up disliking your appearance more than before the surgery occurred.

Plastic Surgery: Conclusion

Ultimately, having plastic surgery is a good thing, and can also be bad thing. No matter what your beliefs may be, there are a multitude of surgeries done each year in the U.S. and they are available as long as you have the money. We shouldn’t shun plastic surgery or advocate it blindly, but understand the risks before making any decisions.

  15. I have app on TV, but I will not pay when my free trial runs out. Why? Cause it doesnt play in HD! I like the movies included with Prime, and a few good tv-series I was gonna follow. I was very excited, but alas so disappointed! I stopped my subscription for Hulu (overrated), and now I have Netflix and HBO, flawless in HD obviously. Guess its back to torrenting movies on Prime. You lost a potential customer.

    or copyright violation? My site has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement.
    Do you know any methods to help protect against content from being stolen? I’d certainly appreciate it.

  20. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God. They deny Jesus as their Messiah, and the Bible tells us this Jewish Messiah will be the counterfiet that will bring about a false peace, and ultimatley the great tribulation.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! God bless!

  21. You made some decent points there. I checked on the internet to find out more about the issue and found most people will
    go along with your views on this site.

  22. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of
    plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it seems a
    lot of it is popping it up all over the web without
    my authorization. Do you know any ways to help stop content from being stolen? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

  34. I love your approach on plastic surgery, Brooke! There is something at the end of this post that stuck with me: ‘We shouldn’t shun plastic surgery but understand the risks before making any decisions.’ By me, this is the most valid approach, and also the correct one! Thanks for posting quality info!
