Plastic Surgery Nightmares: How cutting cost can cost you your looks and your life?

Michael Jackson, Lisa Rinna, Joan Rivers and Kanye West's mother Donda, what do they all have in common? Answer, nightmare plastic surgery. All this when plastic surgery is at an all-time high. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, since 1997, there has been over 162 percent increase in the total number of cosmetic procedures. In 2008, $11.8 billion was spent on cosmetic surgery in the United States! Now, I'm sure all of these celebrities had the best plastic surgeons possible, but what about the average "Joe or Jill" that wants a little fixing up or a major overhaul, but doesn't have the big bucks to get it done. Many will go to someone less reputable and do fine, but for others the results will not be so good.

The top five surgical cosmetic procedures in 2008 were: breast augmentation, liposuction, eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty, and abdominoplasty.

Do you think plastic surgery is worth the risks?

Have we become so superficial that we'll take the chance of being severly scarred, possibly experience pain for life or worse die because we had to have yet another unnecessary surgery?

Men, would you get plastic surgery if it was not in your best interest, just to be more appealing?

There are hundreds of thousands of plastic surgeries successfully performed each year. Some elective and some to correct deformaties and abnormalities. The key is to have a positive self concept, don't attempt drastic alterations, research the procedure and the doctor and expect to pay market rate for the the service.

This is a more complex issue than it appears on the surface. First there are people out there who are disfigured and plastic surgery is a blessing. Next there are people who are not happy with their appearance wish to transform their bodies. I see nothing wrong with that either. There are individuals who will never be happy no matter how much surgery they have because the basic problem is in how they view themselves. Those people need professional counseling. I think that anyone who gets any type of medical care from a fly by night operation no matter what the cost is out of their mind. Higher cost does not always mean higher quality.
