Did you think it was a good investment? Has it bettered your self-image and self-esteem? I imagine that is the reason most people go for surgery. How do people look at you afterwards? Do you think naysayers are actually jealous and want surgery too? Kiss

i got a rhinoplasty job done last year, people did stare but I didn't really care. I looked good, some of my friend said that I looked better. I think as long as the people who care about you are fine with it and think its good, who cares what other people think?Laugh

My friends have gotten double eyelid surgery, for me I'm wanting rhinoplasty. Personally, I don't see what the big deal is - if you want to spend your money on a new nose/bigger breasts/double eyelids etc., that's your business. I don't understand why some people get so annoyed about what others do to their own body. If they're not hurting you, why belittle them? 


Also, in Korea it's like a big deal cause you get judged very critically for your image. For them I think it's kind of like you'll be damned if you do and damned if you don't. So what they got to lose? For people like me in Singapore it's not so drastic but neither do I really care whether I want a tattoo or a nose job. As long as the money comes out from my pocket, my responsibility yknow?

@Josh Tam: I am considering plastic surgery. I have had some done before (Smart Lipo), but not in Korea. I felt it did improve my overall self-esteem. Of course, there were some family and friends that pitched the whole "You are beautiful either way" or "Beauty is on the inside that counts." Wink Kind words, but tell that to the super models on magazines! Laugh

@Roseen G G: I agree with you! I don't understand why others need to worry about whether people have plastic surgery. It's their own, adult choice, right? They should respect it.

I have never considered myself to be pretty, mostly I feel my nose is too big.  I want surgery purely to make myself feel prettier and happier with my image.

Of course, I know that I don't need to get surgery to feel good.  I used to want a boob job because I thought mine were too small, but then I got a hobby where my smaller breasts were actually a good thing (I collect kimono).  Oh yeah, and I bought a push up bra ;P

The esthetics I have improved on myself (teeth straightening and hair removal) have definitely been good for me, both esthetically and as a good investment, as I now can chew and speak better, and don't have to spend as much money constantly buying razors, haha.

So, I think my point is that it doesn't really matter- if it will make you feel good then do it, or learn to love and live happily how you are.

I know people who have waited until after their 40's to get surgeries they've always wanted but didn't do because they were afraid and convinced by others that they didn't need it. To me it goes to prove that self-esteem is something very important and if something like a plastic surgery has the potential to make you happier and feel more free to be yourself, I think those results are much more important than the naysayers and the judging people. I definitely think you should try loving what you consider to be "flaws" first, but if it drains all your energy and years go by without improvment, nothing is wrong with surgery and I think generally, people are able to sympathize with that feeling!
