in our modern days,its not a problem anymore if you were born of not having a good looks. Because of our modern technology now,anything is possible..medicines have a lot of ways for you to look good and more attractive..if i were to ask..its not a big deal for me if i undergo some procedures just to look better..if i can afford to then why not,its not a crime to transform yourself just to look good..but if the reason is just to attract the one that you like..i do not agree with that because if you want to be love by someone,,you must be loved by who you really are and accept you not just by the way you look...

welcometo mylot jlovintin, hope you like it here like most of us do. i dont think i need to undergo any operations, that would be a waste of money. i have four children and a single mom so i need to be able to use the money for them instead of an operation. we are all going to grow old and we can not stop that. we just ahve to accept it gracefully.

To look beautiful or not depends on oneself solely so if a person accepts to do opperations for himself or herself then this is acceptable however if that person is taking such a step just to make someone else' appy then I don't think this is a good idea. If the idea seems good also then the person must think wisely enough to take such actions. We are what we are and no matter how we should respect our being enough to be able to live with it.

The trouble is that not all surgery is successful! They cannot guarantee and I always fear that if I went through the whole painful surgery that it would make me look worst than I was before, you can also get addicted to surgery too! Once you have say your nose done then you'll want something else done, and unless you have unlimited money you just can't afford it as it's very expensive. I think those that only want you for your looks or because you are more attractive are shallow and do you really want to be with someone who wants you for your looks only?

i think i'm ok as i am. i never thought to transform myself, i'm satisfied of my figure, my face and my body. but to be honest, if i had something not so goods (like the nose) probably i could consider to go under surgery to have better look!

I don't think I would ever do this to be honest unless I felt that there was a prt of me which I really didn't like and the procedure was safe. I agree with what you are saying about changing yourself to please someone else - that would be the biggest mistake that anyone could make in my opinion - if anything, do it for yourself, not for anyone else as that would be so bad for someone's self-esteem.

I would never have an operation to make myself look more attractive. To me, that is the most stupidest thing anyone can do to themselves. We should all be happy with how we are born and learn to love ourselves.

do u mean the cosmetic surgeries?if some people r happy with them,like face-lifting,i dont think it is not a good thing. but for myself,i wont go for these operations,...well,i consider it was an unnatrual method to beauty oneself.if i really were to take this way,i would not be myself any more.

Well even before, I am already not into cosmetic surgery.. I don't know if I should say I'm against it, but for myself, I don't want to.. If I would like to change for myself to look attractive, then I wish someone must have already invented an effective way to grow tall real fast... Lol But not in an operation way, I'm undergo something like it.. I don't think I would like to change at any of my features, I'm not perfect, I don't have that high nice bridge nose, nor that tantalizing eyes and voluptuous pouting lips, but I'm happy with my look and confident with it.. I guess if there's anything I'd like to change, that would be to get rid off all my moles on my face.. Well, that's not something that surgery will be involve.. I'm happy with what have given me and I'm pretty and that's what I feel. And I hope every person would feel the same way for themselves.

YES! If I was given about a few thousand dollars, the First thing I would get is Stomack Stapling, folled by a Facelift, & then a Tummy Skin fold reduction. In todays world, being & looking perfect MATTERS! As someone I knew once said to me, "If you can't run with the Big Dogs, just Stay on the Porch". Enough said! Thanks for asking! :)

hello jlovetin... first of all i am contented with what i have and feels like i'm attractive enough...(hehehehe) second, can't afford the price of these surgeries. and if i do have money, i will not waste it in this kind of stuff...there's more important things than this. and i'm afraid of the possible side effects of this procedures. but i have nothing against people who undergo these procedures, in fact i have a friend who put silicon on her nose. and true she looks better now than before. third, i think being attractive is not only comes from physical aspects...its your personality that makes you attractive...how you carry yourself, how you think about yourself, how you treat yourself and other people as well... we are all beautiful in our own way, we don't really need this surgeries, and besides i'm not a celebrity! huh! if we are confident enough on our self and looks then what for are these surgeries?! lets take care,cherish and love what God has given us! have a nice day! :-)

i respect your opinion..but for those who become a laughing stock because of their looks..i cant blame them if they want a make over for themselves..cause in our world we can deny the truth about having a discrimination..

well, again its how you carry yourself and its your personality that really counts, there are people that are not really good looking but still they are respected and not discriminated, because they prove not only to these discriminating people but also to themselves that their looks does not make them a lower person. they prove that they can excel. and besides, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. and we can't also deny a fact that there are some who undergo these surgeries that instead of looking better, they just worsen how they looks and they looks like not real person anymore... but again, its a person's choice and no one is prohibiting them from doing this actions...and besides its their money their using and its their body, anyway. :-)

I always believe that a person is attractive by his words and deeds.Unless and otherwise you are born with a deformity that is an eyesore which can be surgically corrected I will never allow me to a knife just for the sake of looking pleasant.Most of the famous people in the world are not pleasant looking by the general standards but look more beautiful with their talents and achievements.

When I was younger, I would have quickly answered "NO!". Now, that I'm in my 30s, I'm not so quick as to answer in the negative. I think about it for a bit and then still say "no, thank you". I've always been a believer in natural beauty, but aging can get depressing, lol.

natural is the most beautiful!!i always believe it and the operation only make yourself become not so yourself..all the part of yourself is come from your parents,you should accept it and admire it...it is just you, so natural is the best, for looking more attractive then go to undergo operation i cant do it i should treassure all the part of me from my parent given..

hi jlovetin! ^^ i also think a person should love someone for what she/he really looks like and for what she is inside, and not because of a fake face from an operation. i think its a little pitiful for some people who would go as far as that, to spend a lot of money and to undergo dangerous operation. and its much more pitiful when those people become a victim of fake doctors and mess up their bodies and faces. for me, i'm willing to go on a diet, or exercise but not operations. its scary, its painful, its dangerous, its expensive, and it makes you "unnatural" and its not 100% guaranteed that it would have no side effects. plus, its a little too much of a vanity.

i guess i have to thank my parents for this. i am very satisfied with the way i look. so my answer is no, i won't go for any operation to look more attractive. it's not a crime to go for such operations but i don't see the point. if a person is only interested in the way i look, does that mean he/she will leave me once the looks fade? if this is the type of people i'll attract, i'd rather look ugly so that whoever is interested is really interested in me i.e. my character and thinking. cheers

I dont even like the thought of surgery for any reason. There has to be something wrong in someones mental makeup for them to want to do that. Its just too ludichrist. Vainity. Trying to change what God gave you to look the way you think you should. Trying to stop aging!?!?!?! LAMO!!! Its like trying to hold the ocean back with a feather. Come on people. Only Jahovah can stop aging.

I would never have plastic surgery unless I was disfigured in a car crash or attacked I would not do it just for vanity mgraham126

I don't think I would want to, not going through operations just to look good. Unless it's very critical, such as a birth mark or some sort of deformity, I think the person who loves me will have to accept the way I look.

no one wants to be ugly all of us would like to feel and be attractive to others..i think it s human nature..however should we surrender a little of what we are and have become for the sake of beauty? i feel for deformities and accidents yes it should be considered...but if we weren't so bombarded with this issue to look beautiful at every check out counter at your local supermarket..and then when you get home you are bombarded with even more of it when you tuen on the television..even a very substantive person may even begin to wobble his needs and think a little bit about it..and all of these programs like ..Nip and Tuck...and the Swan....it can play on the mind..but for the right reasons..it may be ok...however i belive we can cross a line that makes us very self absorbed and less introspective,reflective,and even corrective about deeper issues...if the media and these people who print these magazines focused on the array of beauty across the human spectre ..we maynot be so troubled about our looks as many have become.

No. I hope that I would never take this route. I'm sometimes ok with how I look, and sometimes not, but I think that surgery is an extreme solution to fix cosmetic problems, and there are always risks involved to your health no matter how common an operation it is. I don't think it's necessary to take these risks unless the surgery itself is for health reasons. Rather than go under the knife for cosmetic reasons, it's much better to learn to love yourself the way you are. There are much more useful things to spend your money on. And there are so many bigger things to worry about in the world than how you look, which is just a trivial thing in the scheme of things.
