what about the males? No one has discuessed it really, but there are more and more men having cosmetic surgery done. Their quick fixes mainly consist of liposuction, nose jobs, hair implants ( is that considered surgery?) and face lifts. Why is it that the men seem to be able to do it behind closed doors and no one thinks twice about it, but its' shameful for a woman to go and have it done?

Right right, but I'm talking about the everyday Jo Blow that you see walking down the street. Michael Jackson...he's just...well he's another topic all together

As you all probably know by now, I was a devout Michael Jackson fan and was sad enough to know nearly every sordid detail of his life. He is a classic example of plastic surgery.

He has changed his nose. There are two claims to this dramatic change. One was that he broke his nose while dancing on stage and he fell off. Another claim was that he hated the way that he looked because every time that he looked in the mirror, he claimed that he saw his abusive father staring right back at him.

As for his skin. Yes, he does have a pigmentation disorder, however, seen as though he is a public icon and is world famous, he has to look his best, or what he considers to be his best, so he covers it up with make up to make it look even. Would you go on television looking all blotchy and having different shades of colours all over your face? Especially when your name is Michael Jackson and you're a superstar? I think not.

Sorry to have rambled on but I used Michael Jackson as an example as he is a very good one. People who use plastic surgery claim to make themselves feel better about what they look like, but if they always have doubts about their self image then they never will be happy, will they?

lol yeah...

It's funny though isn't that whenever the term 'plastic surgery' is mentioned everyone thinks of the same person? He epitomises how surgery can be taken too far. But each to their own eh?

In the news today...


Forty per cent of women who responded to a Canadian survey of breast implant patients, asked to have their implants removed because of complications -- a figure that surprised even the researchers.

Women who had breast implants were also more likely to visit doctors and specialists and were four times more likely to be hospitalized than women without the devices, the study found.

I think its just as bad when men have surgery to make their bits bigger too, it just seems to be less talked about.

Would never go out with a bloke who had ANYTHING artificial implanted into him or any other vain surgery (cosmetically i mean). Obviously if it was because of an accident or severe mental anguish or something then yes, but i wouldn't find him attractive if it was for vanity it would seem self-indulgent.

Would also feel dubious about a man who asked me to have surgery! (it does happen people).
Doesn't really matter what the eye is seeing
cos i'm in love with the inner being

I wouldn't go out with a bloke who had anything fake, I don't think. I like my men 100% natural!

what aboutay type of body modification then? I'm talking about dying your hair...getting tattoos...piercings...I know these are all topics that are posted elsewhere in the forum, so please don't get on them, but really, isn't that just as fake as anything else? I mean, we weren't born with pictures on our body...we weren't born with holes in our ears, nose, and everywhere else....we weren't born with clothes on either but that's just plain modesty. It's something to think about...

We're not judging if it is wrong or right on here, just asking people's opinons.
When you reach for the stars, you may not quite get them, but you won't come up with a handful of mud either.
