In recent years, plastic surgery has become very fashionable, especially among young people. They think it is important for their sense of self-confidence regarding their appearance, or in getting a job. Other people think that it is wrong to change the features that we inherited from our parents. What is your opinion about plastic surgery?
Plastic Surgery Should Be a Personal Choice
While some people may think that plastic surgery is a waste of time and money and that surgeons could be better employed in more traditional life-saving hospital work I believe that cosmetic surgery is here to stay and in fact, plays a very important role in today's society for some people.
Nationwide most of those having cosmetic surgery fall into two groups: women in their 20s hoping to give their careers a lift, and women in their 40s who want to look younger. Mothers sometimes bring their daughters in to have surgery to improve their chances of getting a good job or landing a good husband. While some people may say that these are trivial reasons for cosmetic enhancement compared to patients who suffer from disfigurements or ugly blemishes and have more of a need for plastic surgery I would argue that such people are merely expressing their right to choose. While there are dangers in operations going wrong and often there is a large financial bill at the end most reputable hospitals would warn patients beforehand of the risks involved. At the end of the day the patient has to choose and whether he chooses rightly or wrongly is a matter of personal choice.
In conclusion, plastic surgery does benefit some people and even though there could be complications most patients are aware of them and factor these in when making their own personal choice. (236 words)
