so last nite i was watching the show "I want a famous face" on MTV, and they had this girl that wanted to look like Pamela Anderson and be on the cover of playboy. so she wanted breast implants, lip implants, and lypo under her chin. i don't why she would want all that surgery, she looked very beautiful to begin with, she was very cute. even the talent agent from playboy said she looked very hot and all that she needed to do was to exercise a bit and lose about 10 lbs around the waist. and she definitely did not need breast implants! but she got the surgery done anyways. and i found it funny that they showed another girl who had surgery to look like Pam Anderson, a boob job, and didn't get on the cover of playboy because her breast were too big and fake looking, and if she had her old breasts she would have been on the cover.

it's a real shame that we live in a society were females, and males to, and pressured to look a certain way and if the don't they feel bad about themselves and lack lots of self-esteem and in some cases feel pressured into having plastic surgery. it's sad really...especially if the only reason they are doing is to impress others and not doing it for themselves.

I totally agree. We all just need to be happy with what we have. I don't think it's a bad thing to want to better yourself. But when you take it to the extreme of wanting to look like someone else or getting huge boobs, etc. it's taking it too far. People like that will never be happy and will always find something wrong with themselves.

Hey i just came across ur journal, via Vanessa's.

I agree with what u said, but at the same time I want alot of plastic surgery done.

it's sad really...especially if the only reason they are doing is to impress others and not doing it for themselves.

See the tricky thing is, how do u distinguish the people who are doing it for themselves and those doing it for others? Take me for example, I feel I really need plastic surgery, and everyone tells me not to be so stupid etc, but I feel that it will make ME happier, BUT really deep down my happiness would be coming from the attention i get from others if i end up looking better. So maybe theres no such thing as people doing it for themselves? idk lol society sux.

you make a good point, it is hard to distinguish the two. i guess you would really know if when u had the surgery that you didn't really feel any different inside. like, you didn't feel any happier with yourself and that the attention you were getting was from superficial ppl that just make judgments on ppls looks and not the person that they are inside. don't get me wrong, i'm not completely against ppl getting plastic surgery, it's just that i hope that they are doing it for all the right reasons that they really think about what they're doing before they go through with it.
