Persuasive Plastic Surgery

“You define beauty for yourself; society doesn’t define your beauty” (Lady Gaga). Beauty is viewed as being as those small models that are seen in magazines. Beauty is viewed as having the perfect figure that feels acceptable with today’s society. Beauty is viewed as having the perfect face that requires spending hundreds of dollars. Everyone has grown up in a society that has defined how “beautiful” one is, and has begun to accept that. At one point in life, every individual questions whether or not they are beautiful, or how to become more beautiful. It usually ends up that one will compare us to that model that society thinks is beautiful because they can fit in the smallest of clothes, or they have the face that everyone wants.

More and more teens are beginning to think that this will be the solution that is going to make them more beautiful. There are other reasons for the increase in surgeries, but this happens to be one main reason. Plastic surgery can be harmful and put many teens in a dangerous situation, so why are so many teens choosing to be put under the knife? Stated by Dr. Holmgren, “Teens seek plastic surgery due to some insecurities they feel about the way they look; they think it will fix whatever is ‘wrong’ with them. What you may or may not understand is that plastic surgery won’t make you a different person, make people like you or make you popular” (2). Teen girls have gotten to the point that they think that if they go under the knife all of their physical flaws are taken care of. However, the emotional vibe telling the individual they were not beautiful will still be there. Not only teen girls, but females in general go under the knife thinking that they will come out looking picture perfect. It is often that the individual does not even know the cost of the procedure they are about to have. They will eventually realize beauty is much more than spending hundreds of dollars on a person they want to be. Instead, they just need to learn how to accept themselves for who they really are. To add, cosmetic procedures did not help Heidi Montag, in fact, it ruined her career as she mentioned. Montag …show more content…
Although the image of a stereotypical model appears in someone’s head when they think of the word beauty, one should realize everyone is beautiful no matter what. Beauty comes in all shapes, sizes, color, and there is nothing anyone can do about it. Rae Smith once said, “There is nothing wrong with your body, but there is a lot wrong with the messages that try to convince you otherwise” (Hulog). The people in this world have begun to allow society’s opinions on beauty, which create a bad sense for some, so they try hard to become the image of beauty that society gives an individual. Having “plus size” models should help the women in society feel like they are perfect, too. Being strong and fit is beauty as well, for there should be more models that look like that rather than just tall and skinny. Last but not least, the numbers of surgical procedures may reduce if society did not define beauty how they have been for years, but if they used a diversity of models that would give the women in this world more confidence. Whether or not an individual is a size zero or a size 16, size should not matter, right? Everyone is
