The people here who follow the thread (including me) have a certain interest in augmenting a particular part of their face/body.
There is no fault in that. They are doing it to themselves, and for themselves.
Tunafish, you hit the nail on the head. Sometimes nature is not so kind and a little surgical enhancement may do wonders. I heard of a girl who had very small and slitty eyes and one could barely see her pupils. She had problem finding employment and eventually had her eyes surgically widened. Don't know the exact detail but maybe the surgeion removes/lifts the excess skin on her eyelids. She was much happier after that and had an easier time looking for a job. I do not know why potential employers are hesitant to hire her pre-surgery. Maybe her slitty eyes make her appear sleepy and conveys the impression that she is a slow and inefficient worker? This leads me to belief that there is value to cosmetic surgery, not to mention now the world can see those pair of beautiful eyes that was hiding behind the excess skin all those years
I may not approve of people who wholly think cosmetic surgery will cure all their woes in life and those who are highly addicted to it. However, there are worse things that humans are capable of then trying to surgically change themselves like ............ addicted to drugs, gambling, commiting crimes like raping young children, kidnapping and murder etc........ Sorry if this sounds off the wall but why be so judgmental? After all, they are not inflicting harm on another being.
That said, I still can't help myself from poking fun at some of the cosmetic surgery posts
