I feel bad for women who feel they have to go under the knife to gain self esteem. I can understand if someone is born with certain defect (cleft lip/palate), has suffered some unfortunate accident (burn victims), or has medically sound reasons to surgically improve or restore their appearance. Of all of the cases that I've seen on tv, most of the women look no better than they did before. The ones that are better are mariginally so, but still no beauty. Instead of turning 2 heads walking into a restaurant, she turns 3. So what? Do these ducklings actually think they could turn into a swan? It's sad really. I think these women could be far more interesting people if they took the time and money and learned a new skill or took up a hobby, travelled, or bought new HT gear (and not plasma and Bose) I saw this women at a store who appeared to have collagen injections in her lips and it looked like she took a basketball to her beak. To the women of this world: You are fine the way you are. I prefer you natural, unaltered, with all your flaws, because you are real. I hope it is not wishful thinking to think that most men feel the same. The vanity and lack of self-worth it takes to inject your body with silicone, collagen, and botox is actually far uglier than whatever flaw you think you have. Your fake breasts are no more desirable that your small breasts. You look better standing in front of me than you do in front of a mirror. At the end of the day, it's you I want to lay next to, not some plastic doll. You can't buy self-esteem. It's earned.
