Plastic surgery: a way to promote beauty or destroy it?
As to me, beauty is a very subjective matter. Beauty is a high tidy of both body and mind, where the body signifies outer beauty and the mind the inner world. One would be useless without the other. A new born baby is beautiful in his innocence; a bride is beautiful in her unique splendor, a mother has the most beautiful smile while holding her baby. It is the charm of each happy moment which stays, and is worth cherishing.
However, in todays world not everyone looks at beauty beneath the skin. External appearances have taken the leading role in defining beauty. Everyone wants flawless skin and a perfect body; people are not hesitant to take the helping hand of plastic surgery to achieve the goal. Ladies in their fifties long for the skin look of twenty year old girl, being sure that the wrinkles signify the loss of beauty. Plastic surgery does not promote individuality, but creates a mentality, where everyone wants to be up to the specific standard of beauty established by the mass media. However, it is just a loss of your personality and a case of instant gratification, since people become addicted and not in a position to stop with a single plastic surgery.
In a nutshell, I suppose the plastic surgery to be a profession that should be implied for medical purposes only, in order to help accident victims, and birth disorders. Accepting the way you look is very important, if you want to be in harmony with yourself. Getting your face or body changed to fit the societys concept of beauty, is definitely not the way; and to promote the plastic surgery, as a means to become beautiful, is not the solution.
