Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Should Be Stopped
I strongly believe plastic surgery used for cosmetic purposes should be stopped. Why is this you ask? Well, it wastes resources, time, and does not promote self-confidence. There are many different opinions on this topic, but hopefully mine will become yours. Perfect skin, curvy figure, moviestar hair. It all sounds perfect, doesn’t it? But in reality, is it really?
To begin with a perfect body does not come without a price. There is always some form of payment whether it is in money, resources, or even time. Getting plastic surgery to look prettier wastes all three of these. So why would you waste money, resources and time, just to look prettier? These are the three most wanted things in the world, and you are just wasting it on your appearance. Why not spend these three things on more relevant things, instead of just thinking about yourself?
In addition to the above, another reason cosmetic plastic surgery should be banned, is because it does not promote self-confidence. It is showing that if you do not like anything about your appearance, then change it. In our time, cosmetic plastic surgery is very popular, and it is hard to come across a celebrity who has not had plastic surgery. It is not a very good example to youth, especially teenage girls who are still unsure about their body image , and what it should look like in our modern societies eyes. Seeing everyone around you getting plastic surgery pressurises you, and makes you think if you get that too, you’ll finally be ‘cool’ or you will ‘fit in’. But in my opinion, plastic surgery doesn’t make you look more perfect, mentally. It just covers up, what you don’t want to be seen.
On the other hand, plastic surgery can be good. It can make you feel more confident in yourself, and more like your dream person. With plastic surgery, you can look however you want to look. But to be fair, why would you want to cover up yourself? Why would you want to cover up your ‘flaws’ and ‘imperfections’? Are those ‘flaws’ and ‘imperfections’ not what makes you, you? Every single freckle, scar, birthmark, has it’s own history behind it, and is perfect in every single way. If you don’t like something with your appearance, don’t change it. Learn to love it, learn to love your appearance that is entirely your own.
In conclusion, I really believe that cosmetic plastic surgery should be stopped. The number of negatives outweigh the positives, so why argue against it ? Hopefully I have changed your opinion, and if you’re ever not sure about your appearance, think of this article. Because remember you are perfect in every way - so why would you want to change you?
