Topic: More and more people are seeking plastic surgery for purely cosmetic reasons. Why are so many people willing to accept the costs and risks of this kind of surgery?
My opinion is that we should not lightly seek plastic surgery. Now, there is a fair amount of advertisement for cosmetic surgery here and there and some people have facelift operations casually to incorporate a new look. However, I strongly disagree with this trend.
First, we cannot pursue a meaningful life with the attitude that if we do not like something, we should simply replace it. Even if we get plastic surgery, our lives will never become instantly perfect.
It may be true that someone who has been uncomfortable with his/her appearance would become temporarily confident if he/she got plastic surgery. I had the same kind of negative feelings toward my body as a ballet dancer. What I strongly believed then was that my life would become perfect if I obtained a very skinny and attractive figure.
However, I keenly realized that even if I had fine features, it did not mean that I would have no more struggles in life. Life would still be full of its ups and downs. What I had to do first was to accept myself as I was and appreciate my own uniqueness. What counts most was the ability to get out of my own little world.
In conclusion, I disagree with plastic surgery because all material things pass away and nothing stays forever. I believe that the most important thing in life is to grow our souls and serve other people, not to niggle over appearance.
