Plastic Surgery & Changes of Perception

The term ‘plastic surgery’ are no longer a strange term as these procedures are getting more popular each day. Not only adults are receiving such procedure but I came across a video as young as 7 years old last week. There are some cases of bully in their surrounding leading them ‘fix’ the matter by doing so.

Here is a statistic of top 25 countries on the total surgical and non-surgical procedures that has been done in year 2010. The amount has been gradually increased in certain countries. In the US, there are 13.8 million procedures performed in 2011 (Source: American Society of Plastic Surgeons) which remains as the top country of performing plastic surgery.

Throughout the years, the society are accepting plastic surgery positively. Celebrities are no exceptional for such procedures for they are in the limelight of the society and being recognized everywhere they go. They would always want to look good and not all plastic surgery could be bad. Reality hits and study shown that good looking people gets more attention (Source: APS). Do you see where is this all going?

Back in 2008, I wrote about Plastic Surgery VS Natural Beauty and I wasn’t able to accept people who had plastic surgery except if you’re caught in accidents and being deformed from it. In my opinion, if you really need plastic surgery, ‘fix’ to improve the feature without going overboard. If you turned yourself looking totally different from how you originally looked, you’ll be the top hot news around for the wrong reasons. Worse case scenario when the surgery failed and your features started to collapse, people will take plastic surgery negatively. What’s the most important is, if you’re happy with how everything turned out, people will eventually accept you and plastic surgery.

No one is perfect and its alright to live with imperfections. Personally, I have flat and big nose with pitted scars and gummy smile but I counter it by contouring my nose with makeup and practice smiling in front of the mirror to lessen those gummy smiles from photos. I can’t really do much for the pitted scars unless I have it treated with laser which I couldn’t afford it yet . With our imperfections, we need to learn how to accept and embrace it. Can’t deny it as I also use double eyelid tape to deepen my crease although I do have double eyelid.

What if I were given a chance to go for plastic surgery for sponsored ? I still have the fear of entering operating theatre (the last time I did was for endoscopic procedure) and I’m still skeptical about it. Things could possibly change in the future, who knows?

 

What do you think of plastic surgery and if you’re sponsored with plastic surgery procedure, would you do it and which feature would you like to give it a change?

Plastic Surgery VS Natural Beauty

Dawn Yang

I was searching for plastic surgery, after knowing the famous blogger, Dawn Yang went through those procedures, and I am really outdated on those particulars when I was in Australia. Some said its rumors. Well only she and the people around her know. I was stunted to know that there are so many famous celebrities who went under the knives. Try to Google it, famous and infamous celebs are all listed out there. I have gotten several. Most of them went for nose jobs, breast implants or lip injections but I don’t consider lip injection as surgery, it’s just injection.

It’s amazing how these people are so extremely particular on their physical looks. I wonder how does these people are able to live with their artificial body parts when they are already look so gorgeous. Or I could say living in their ‘plastic’ life? Is this the new trend for true physical beauty? I agree they did enhance their look, looking much more fabulous but it is somehow ‘fake’.

I do agree on plastic surgeries for unfortunate people such as people who were born disfigured or met an accident and had their body parts disfigured. These people would just want to look normal and go on back in their life.

Plastic surgery doesn’t mean that it will make you look beautiful. Sometimes shit does happen. It can turn you looking not very beautiful after all. Look at Michael Jackson and Jocelyn Wildenstein, are they happy with their ‘plastic’ face?

Where has pure natural beauty gone to? Has it died right in this era? Would our next generation live in their ‘fake’ bodies with longer lives? Would plastic surgery be the next product over the shelf?

I admit that I have a big fat nose. I did give a thought of getting a nose job, but to think of it, I don’t think that I look that ugly after all. There must be a reason for me to born this way. So, I just leave it as it is and it has pitted scars. I’m finding ways just to get rid of it, using the natural way without going under the knives at all. I have a cousin who went for nose job and double eyelid surgery, the turn out? Her nose looks fine to me, but her eyes turned into cockeye! How scary is that?
