SONG: Chris de Burg - Lady in Red
When people think about cosmetic surgery, they only think about people who are not happy about their physical appearance and change it by being operated. However, cosmetic surgery is more than that.
On the one hand, a lot of people who live in developed countries and are not happy about how they look like undergo an operation to be prettier or more attractive. I think that if there were not cosmetic surgery for this kind of things, people would be better. The fact there are operations which change parts of people’s body just because they think they would look better shows that people really need to be changed to look better, and that is not true. I believe we have to accept ourselves just the way we are, and if there are still this kind of operations, people will never get the confidence they need, but, as usual, money is more important than people.
On the other hand, cosmetic surgery has improved, or even saved, the lives of lots of people who really needed it. People who had suffered an accident or children who were born physically handicaped and had their faces or other parts of their body completely destroyed, are now happy due to cosmetic surgery.
For this reason, cosmetic surgery should never disappear. Nevertheless, we should think how to use it and its consequences.
