I’m here to just ask a question about people’s views on plastic surgery. I have been leaning towards the idea of plastic surgery for a long time which is why I’ve decided to save money. I’ve considered doing a nose job which I struggle with the most in my visage. I’ve gotten all kinds of remarks about my nose which I still think about today. I’ve been leaning towards this surgery for a long time which I think about everyday. I’ve also considered getting a bbl because I’ve got hips dips which I hate the most about my lower body. I rarely leave the house and I always make excuse to be exempt from when my friends invite me to places. I’m still quite young and body image has deeply affected me. When I’m at school everyone leans towards my bestfriend and leaves me out. They always praise her with ‘your so pretty’ and just erase my existence next to her, they don’t even lay their eyes on me but her. I get really self conscious if I try something new like put makeup because people look at me which makes my head flood with thoughts such as ‘are they making fun of me’ , ‘do they like me’. My bestfriend is the most nicest person out there she’s kind to me and her surroundings but i get so self insecure next to her. Even writing this now my throat is closing up just thinking about this and hurts like hell. If I do consider getting the surgery done do you think I’ll be heavily discriminated against? What’s your views on my decisions? Do you think I should get it done? Will I be happy if I get it done?

Hello there,

That does seem challenging. I was hoping if I could offer some thoughts. Feel free to consider them as you please

Firstly, consider that cosmetic procedures don’t often have a perfect result. There’s risks to the procedure and the outcome may not outweigh that risk. There’s also a high rate of dissatisfaction in individuals who have undergone a surgery for purely cosmetic reasons.

Secondly, I feel there are perhaps more meaningful ways to feel better about yourself. Perhaps finding someone to talk about how you feel would be helpful? Comparing yourself to someone else never a helpful exercise. Moreover, finding ways of thinking that build yourself up would improve how you are feeling, rather than turning to surgery to “fix yourself.” In the long term, finding ways to appreciate yourself for who you are, will never be a bad thing.

Try and find ways of appreciating yourself for who you are, and acknowledge that none of us are perfect!

I'm guessing 'school' means your younger than 18 and possibly younger than 16...

If it's your friends making these remarks get different friends because even with the plastic surgery your only going to end up like them..

I’m also considering getting the same procedures as you and saving up to get a bbl hopefully by the end of this year beginning of next year I’m currently look for travel partner as I’ll be going alone

People can do whatever they want with their own bodies but it only becomes an issue what they try to pass it off as natural and let young girls chase an idea of beauty that is artificial

Isn’t that procedure exceedingly dangerous? I don’t care what people do, but please be careful!
