    This is my stance on plastic surgery, e.g. say somebody is so uncomfortable with their nose or whatever and it bugs them daily then yes its fine - get it over with and enjoy your life. - However there comes a point when one feels "ooh i liked how theyve done my nose - now maybe they can do..so and so.." Therefore becomes an addictive cycle of plastic surgeries.
    That's true, I suppose once you achieve perfection with one thing, it'll only make other imperfections stand out to you more. It's so hard to strike a balance though - it'd be nice if there was someone to step in say "No, I you cannot have this surgery, it's unnecessary, your nose/tits/jaw/whatever are fine". But people's ideas of "fine" vary, and what may appear fine could actually be making the person in question very unhappy. Sadly it seems that plastic surgery can be really quite addictive, but the influence of Hollywood probably didn't help in this situation, since it's all plastic fantastic given that it's so affordable for many. For most people though, I think we just have to hope that they have the sense to see that although almost anything could be improved via plastic surgery, there is a point at which to draw the line and accept that we'll always be with minor imperfections, and perhaps only the major ones should be tampered with.

    Besides, perfect is boring. Heidi Montag sure doesn't look a mess, but she just appears so plain to me since nothing stands out about her now.

    I definatly agree...Just interested on who do you think should have the right to say "no more plastic surgery". The plastic surgeons themselves? And tbh whithout hollywood there would be no plastic surgery. There would be no "right or wrong way" to look - as we would have no figurehead. For instance if one says "Brad pitt or another celebrity is the most perfect way to look (which magazines and such to exemplify) - then there would be (and is) an increase of men trying to look like him - and the same goes with females - and probably more so. People honestly need to realise that you were made a certain way for a reason - and minor flaws and those "little imperfections" are what make us unique.:yes:

    Whatever she wants to do it's up to her. I can't agree or disagree with another person's surgery, if it makes her feel better then good for her.

    I didn't have a clue who she was, but at 23 it's a sad thing to do to yourself. She was fine before.

    I understand what people are saying about it being her life or whatever but the extent of damage that some people do to themselves through things like pastic surgery is just horrific. In 20 years I bet she will be a dead ringer for Jackie stallone.

    I dread to think how I would feel if my face looked like that. I feel sick when I cut too much hair off or pull a chunk of eyelashes out accidently..things that will grow back. All people like Heidi can do is keep having more and surgery to try and sort the mess left behind each time. I don't believe for a second that she is happy.

    That's the thing, there isn't really anybody who has the right to tell anybody else what to do with their own body, only advise them. Just gotta hope people take that advice, I guess. People have just gotta start loving what their mama gave them! :awesome:

    I'm ashamed of myself for saying this, but I think she looks kind of beautiful. [And she's still recovering so she'll be able to move her face more later.] She definitely looks much older than her age though!

    I didn't know who she was before I read this thread.

    But anyway - her body, her choice, her responsibility.

    It makes me a bit sad, she used to be so pretty, and she seemed like she was a really fun person at the beginning of The Hills. Now she just looks really vacant. Poor Heidi.

    She looked best like this!
