Plastic Surgery Anyone?
I was shocked when I saw the site for the first time. It's a collection of different plastic and cosmetic surgery procedures before and after pictures. Many real people's photos taken together and shown for public.
Millions of Americans have some kind of cosmetic surgery each year. Among the seemingly ever-inventive procedures are eyebrow lifts, nose jobs, eyelid tucks, breast implants, tummy tucks, liposuction and controversial and troubling silicone injections.
Cosmetic surgery is clearly a flourishing business. In a recent issue of Los Angeles Magazine, more than 25 advertisements peddled the miracles of such surgery as unabashedly as if it were aluminum siding, with fees ranging from $50 to $5,000. Many surgeons have incomes in the high six figures, and lavish tens of thousands of dollars on interior decorators to replicate European settings.
Dr. Frank Kamer, a Beverly Hills surgeon whose celebrity clients have included Cher and Joan Rivers, says that "good plastic surgery is quick psychotherapy," and there are thousands of satisfied patients who would promptly agree with him. ''Nothing makes me feel better about being a doctor than working on someone who is a good psychological and physical candidate,'' he says. But he turns away about 40 percent of the people who come to see him, either because they have unrealistic fantasies or because they are overweight, or heavy smokers , or have heart disease or diabetes. For a variety of reasons these is a risk for such surgery.
To sum up, plastic surgery has already become quite a common thing to our lives. Don't act like you have never ever thought about it. Are you telling me that you love every single part of you so much that you would not change a thing? Let's be honest, everyone has some flaws. While thinking seriously about having some, look at others people before and afters. Talk to someone, who had some procedures done. It helps to understand if you really need to go through all this.
