One of the few things we have in life is choice. We choose what we want and do not want, just like plastic surgery. Some people just want a nose job or plumper lips, others want a slimmer waist or bigger eyes, or they just want it all. Plastic surgery is one on the main ways many people achieve their desired perfection. It changes things that has bothered someone their entire life. More recently cosmetic surgery has become fairly common solution to imperfections among people. With that many have pondered the question why would someone want to go under the knife for something so minor as their appearance. Weather someone can or cannot change themself should not be up to anyone but one’s self. We as a society should leave people alone without limitations because it is their life and money, if someone is not allowed to achieve their perfect self they may resort to unsafe practices, and if we were not always trying to better ourselves we would never make advancements in technology.

The most important person that needs to be happy first is yourself.

Furthermore, without the help of professionals many would turn to mutilating themselves to achieve their preferred look. People may start to feel emotional distress regarding their appearance. They tend to focus on little things that other might not even notice. This is called Body Dysmorphic Disorder, it can lead to unsafe practices. “... a person may attempt to “correct” his or her perceived flaw… Some people with BDD have even attempted to perform on themselves when they could not persuade a plastic surgeon
