I am not referring to incidents where plastic surgery is needed to save somebodys life or mabe repair damage done in an accident - i.e- for medical reasons. I just get tired of hearing about women who ''can't live with themselves unless they have a boob job, or a nose job..bla bla bla.......is it just me or is that not quite selfish when people are born blind, deaf, in severe poverty, or with any kind of ''disability'' and often don't spend their lives complaining about it. i know everybody is entitled to an oppinion but i'm sure that people don't have to get their toes shortened just so they can wear a pair of shoes - i'm referring to some recent american stories here. does anyone agree or disagree??

it's also kind of disrespectful to nature or god, whatever your beliefs are, or arn't. i mean surely if you have all your limbs and they work and your brain is ticking over well people should be happy with this.............yes........no!!

But if you can afford it, what's the problem? There's lots of things in life that we don't need, but we waste our money on.

NHS treatment is a different matter.

yeah but, i'm just saying that...why can't people think more about others, i mean being opened up and having something put inside your body which is a very precious thing surely doesn't feel as good as giving the money you would have spent on it to somebody who really needs it or to a charity - - - or at the very least saving it.

But as I said, its no different to every other luxury we surround ourselves with. I think its completely fruitless asking everyone to be 100% altruistic.

but i'm not asking everyone to be 100% altruistic, i'm asking for peoples oppinions. and the only reason plastic surgery catches my attention amoungst all other ''luxurys'' is because it's a big deal to me to mess with a healthy body.

totally disagree, I'm afraid I am of the faction that says, If I have the money, then I shall spend it on what I wish - be that rubber tits, Maseratis and driving lessons from Jenson Button whatever. God - she told me she doesn't mind if I don't go to church. I simply do not believe that the money I have earnt or whatever should be given to every frikking charity that comes along just cos someone is worse off than I am. Is it self indulgent - probably! But then its not really anyone else's business if I choose to get fat hoovered out of my thighs.

Well I believe we should have a balance, through fair taxation.

What's wrong with having cosmetic surgery on the NHS? I don't mean a boob job but what about facial deformity?

That's not cosmetic surgery, its the other thing with a similar name which I've forgotten.

We're talking boob jobs here, I thought.

Plastic surgery is good if you have had some kind of accident, leaving scarring etc.

Plastic surgery is bad if you just want it because you don't like the way you look IMO.

not you, howard. And my argument is if the NHS doesnt want you to have it done why would they offer it?
