Plastic surgery Huh?? Hmmm!! Well, when it comes to breast enlargement,nose jobs, face lifts etc. for the sake of making yourself look better, in your opinion, or esp. the breast enlargement to please your husband or boy friend!! Nope, don't think so. If you can't be accepted for who you are rather than how you look what kind of people are you hanging out with? I think they're the wrong ones. Back to the breasts, If your hubby or boy friend wants you to have it done tell them fine, if they want to have it done too, see how they like lugging those babies around!!!
Now, breast reduction is another thing. It is almost always done for medical reasons. It is a known fact that women who have extremely large breast suffer from multiple back ailments, the long term effect of which can be at the very least uncomfortable and at the maximum not healthy for the back at all and present a signifigant health risk,i.e. slipped discs etc.
There is a reason that I do agree with fully for the use of plastic surgery and that is to correct severe deformaties that , for whatever reason, a person has been afflicted with. My youngest sister was born with her right ear folded over and slightly smaller than the other. At the time of her birth she was too young for x-rays or any test that could have been used to determine if she had just laid on it wrong while developing or if it was a complete deformaty. When she turned about 5 yrs. old they did surgery to open up the area that was hidden by the folded over part of the ear. As it turned out it was a complete deformaty, there was no ear canal at all. At that point they did do surgery on her to build a "new" ear, or as close as they could come to it looking like an ear. Approx. 6 surgeries latter she had an ear. Now I know it doesn't sound like something that was necessary but to my little sister it was, children can be extremely cruel, that surgery saved her alot of misery and embaressment. She still can't wear her hair very short, she keeps it just below the ear lobe which works fine and at that length it looks like she has an ear.
The term plastic surgery doesn't apply here either. To make her ear they removed cartilage from her chest and did skin grafts using skin from her behind, luckily the scars that it left are very minimal.
At the risk of sounding flip about the subject there were other advantages to them building her a new ear. If one of us looses an earring we give her the one that's left, she's not allowed to put an earring in the one that was made,thus we recycle. When she had to get glasses she now had a way of holding the sides up equally!! She also can, so to speak, turn a deaf ear to you and unless you knew the situation you would just continue to ramble on, never knowing she wasn't listening to a word you said!!!
Don't get me wrong here, I'm not making fun of my sister, she's as good natured about it as anyone about the situation. That being, I'm sorry, rather long windedly being said, I rest my case!! Thank you!
