I'm not trying to offend anyone (and I know that's a dangerous way to start a sentence), but I'm really surprised by how many people on here are pro-cosmetic surgery.
I tend to think of BH as skewing toward 'natural' everything. There are a lot of people on here who are VERY anti c-section, and will say things like "I would NEVER have 'major abdominal surgery'" - but seem to be okay with cosmetic surgery.
I guess I don't really get it, as I am kind of the opposite way around. I see no problem with c-sections (and had one for DD), but can't imagine electing for surgery for cosmetic reasons.
I'm not saying I think it's wrong for anyone else to do it. I'm just confused by what seems like a contradiction to me - that some people (I know this isn't everyone) are so 'natural everything' when it comes to having a baby, but not when it comes to their own bodies for cosmetic reasons.
Hope that's not derailing too much, and I'll repeat - no insult is intended. I'm obviously just not 'getting' something!

I guess it depends on what kind of surgery the person is getting and why they're getting it. I don't think I'd ever get lipo or a tummy tuck but then again, I can't say that because I've always been petite and I don't know it feels to be them... If that makes sense.

I've not had "cosmetic" surgery, but I've certainly had "elective" surgery.
I had weight loss surgery, which is not exactly cosmetic, but it certainly does improve the appearance of me... so I guess I can't really tsk tsk anyone that goes and gets fake tits put in because my surgery has kinda done the same thing for me (well, not boobs... lol... but it changed my appearance, though not immediately).
I could not live with being fat. My heart was saying I could not live with being fat... it was about getting ready to give me a heart attack or stroke thanks to my high BP... but I also just didn't like being fat. I suppose it must feel similar for people who just can't live with having whatever specific flaw they feel they have. Maybe they hate having less than could fill an A-cup... maybe they are sick of their sticky-outy ears... maybe they can't stand that despite all their efforts, they've got a tummy full of loose, sagging skin.
I think that if someone has the balls to get surgery to do something that makes them feel good about themselves, then great.
This, however, does not apply to women (or men) who get MULTIPLE surgeries... because I really feel that they'd do much better with mental health care rather than surgeries. Someone like Heidi Montag, who had god knows how many things done to her in a matter of hours... poor thing. I think she's seriously screwed in the head if she thought she needed all of that done, and her money would have been better spent on a pyschologist.
But in general, if you're happy apart from one little thing that surgery can ammend... then why not? Of course, I think it's always better to love yourself as you naturally are, rather than getting rid of your physical quirks... but if that's not working for you, then why not?
I know that if after this weight loss I lost all my boobs, I'd go get some fake ones put in to replace what I had lost. Luckily mine are still fairly full... but I'd not know myself without a decent pair of boobs on my chest and there's no way I would live without them willingly. I might consider some sort of tummy tuck (and body lift etc) when I'm at a weight I'm totally happy to maintain... and after I'm done having children... but right now, even though parts of me are saggy, I don't really care too much.

I would loooooove a breast lift. But I would NEVER pay 10 grand for it. I'd feel guilty for the rest of my life looking at my perky boobs while children starve in other parts of the world.

I am really deeply annoyed though that almost exclusively women are targeted by mass media and by society at large about their looks, to the point where their self esteem is affected. Men really do not have to cope with this hardly at all, and you see it especially with female politicians, their looks, fashion sense, sexual orientation, family life etc are so closely scrutinised and criticised, yet male pollys suffer a fraction of this crap.
I really find our deeply mysoginist society very disturbing.

My lack of understanding was more for those who were (sometimes quite vociferously) against c-sections/ birth interventions, but were pro-surgery.
I'm not thinking of any one person in particular. However, as someone who has had a c-section, I see a lot of people on BH expressing strong anti c-section sentiments - often based on the fact that it is surgery.
It just struck me as a little strange - and perhaps that's where I'm not understanding - that people could be so anti c-section, yet pro surgery for cosmetic reasons.
Often the c-sections are for medical or psychological reasons, but sometimes people still argue that those reasons are not valid (or not valid 'enough' to warrant the dreaded c-section), whereas I would have thought that if someone was pro-choice/ understanding when it came to cosmetic surgery, then the same might apply for birth choices.
Sorry - not trying to turn this into something about c-sections!

So to me personally there is no difference between say having a tattoo or getting Botox. It's all about altering or marking your body to what makes you happy.
To me a happy woman is what is most important because really none of us are the way nature intended us to be.
