They say that money doesnt buy you everything. But doesnt it? With the modern technology now, as long as you have money, you can even change parts of your body to make you more beautiful or younger or slimmer or bustier or whatever else you want to do with your body. If you have the extra cash, would you give yourself a plastic surgery or change the parts of your body to make you be more desirable or beautiful?

plastic surgery is definitely a blessing for those who really need it who got into an accident, or has a birth defect. it really helps people to make their lives much better, and also makes them feel and look normal. for those who doessn't really need it, it also serves as a blessing because they finally found a way to improve themselves. having a plastic surgery to improve your face or body is neither bad nor good. it just depends on the person on how she'll indulge herself/himself in it.

Yes, i think plastic surgery is not bad as long as it is not abused. I mean, there are some people who have no place to put their money and have different parts of their body fixed. It's as if everything is not original anymore.

I guess your point of view is true. But, I felt sorry for their kids. Let say, the mother and father has nice nose even tough its a nose job. One day, they have kids... I hope their children and other people not thinking that they are adopted.

if done right it is a blessing...but if not, naturally it is a curse! if money can buy everything, money is still sometimes the cause of all evil...yes, it can make you beautiful but it will be altering the design of the Lord which may be a hole or entry point of evil.................

Even if I had the money, I wouldn't go through surgery to change my body. I think plastic surgery is great for people who are born or somehow became severely disfigured. And for them, I guess they're lucky there are so many shallow people out there that the plastic surgeons get plenty of practice. But in absence of a third arm growing out of the side of my head, I don't feel like I need plastic surgery.

It's really a blessing. For people with deformity or for those who had accidents, it's a blessing. We have brains to think for ourselves that's why we're better than animals, so why let it be a curse?

Yes, although unfortunately, some people tend to abuse them and take for granted these simple blessings that we have.
