I had a discussion with a friend the other day about plastic surgery. It turns out it’s quite the debate.  Is a woman shallow if she is having a plastic surgeon fix every little flaw? Does she lack a lot of self confidence? Or is it the other way around? Is it that she has enough confidence to be able to recognize her flaws and fix them?

I personally believe it’s the first option. I don’t believe in having a plastic surgeon fix every little thing you don’t like about yourself. I think Beverly Hills is a perfect example. The movie stars are getting every little thing fixed, and they still aren’t happy. They are probably as insecure as ever. Why? Because it doesn’t work. You can’t permenently boost your self confidence by getting a surgery. You may be be happy for a little bit, but then you’ll just find another problem area that you want to fix. It will never end.

Also, what about endorphins? You know those feel good hormones you get when you go for a nice long run? They make you happy. They boost your mood. And what about the feeling of satisfaction you get when you lose a few pounds cause you actually ate healthy and worked out? A plastic surgeon can’t give you that.

That’s just my view on it. Take it for what it’s worth.
