Women and men get plastic surgery for non-medical reasons quite often. Generally, one can assume cosmetic surgery is a step taken to defy the aging process. However, I am here to point out that the only thing being defied is nature.
People who get a facelift to look younger, newsflash: getting a facelift makes you look like a person who got a facelift! Is there any such thing as a “good” facelift if one can tell you had a facelift? The procedure does not make a person look younger, it makes them stand out, sure, makes them stand out as weird looking. Aging is going to happen whether you like it or not, it is my opinion that embracing reality is more of a beautiful thing than going under the knife and ruining your profile.
Procedures such as botox are a little more subtle than a full on facelift, so if sneaking that one by a few times is not really as evil in my book of self-mutilation; then its good to consider A Michigan Facelift cosmetic product that works well on the skin without damaging its softness. Actually, if getting a facelift makes you feel better about yourself and you don’t care if others think you honestly look like a freak, then I say go for it as well. I am not trying to get in the way of anyone’s happiness with my commentary, I am just pointing out an obvious truth that might get brushed over with false compliments more times than not to save someone’s feelings.
Also, plumping up your lips with injections is not attractive either. There are some women who were born with “bee-stung” lips and they are attractive, because they fit them and their face naturally. The lips in and of themselves are not the deciding factor of beauty for the person. If you plump up your lips you more than likely look like a fish not a human and are going away from your natural beauty enhancers, whatever they may be. Trying to look like Angelina Jolie is jumping in on a trend and trends never last.
Surgical implants for the look of muscles or added junk in the butt trunk is a ridiculous investment as well. If you want to have muscles, go build some up! Fake muscles make you a fake person not better looking. Butt implants are really unnecessary. If you are a person who does not have a very pronounced butt, by adding in butt implants you are catering to those who are looking for a bigger butt, not the spectrum of potential mates overall. A big butt is not beautiful to all, so I guess making your butt bigger is a statement about your own preferences: you like people who like big butts? A butt is a wonderful thing to grab in to and to arouse the opposite sex, but whatever butt you have in most cases is enough to get the job done.
Makeup is a tricky issue when it comes to hiding ones flaws. Some women DO look better with makeup on. Many look better without it. More and more people seem to be going overboard with makeup, however, and in those cases I think one should just invest in a mask.
Tattoos can fall into the category of cosmetic enhancement and I am not as negative about tattoos as I am about plastic surgery. Tattoos can be artistic expression on the shell that is going to be abandoned after death. The skin can become a canvass for sharing elements that are a part of you and that you potentially will be taking away with your soul, if such a thing exist. However, tattoos that are done for the sake of trend or “cool” may be a mistake.
And there you have it, a little bit of commentary on a little bit of this and a little bit of that, but the main message is: don’t go under the knife to try be what you think is more appealing to other people. Being yourself is as beautiful as it gets because even with a fake face on you cannot change who you are and that is the make or break it quality in human interaction.
