It’s been a while since I wrote something but I’m back with an interesting topic that seems to get more popular as the days go by. The topic I chose to discuss is plastic surgery. We live in a culture where youth and beauty are prized. People are no longer afraid to go under the knife in order to gain certain advantages. The way we look has always had a huge impact in the way we are perceived, and this is only becoming more and more of a phenomenon. The demand for plastic surgery remains strong and the money that is spent on it is increasing by the minute.
Plastic surgery is a medical specialty concerned with the “correction” or restoration of form and function. We can now use our assets to get somewhere in life where we couldn’t if we didn’t go under the knife. For instance, dancers/strippers. The more work done can equivalent to how much more your earnings will grow. The pretty face is no longer enough to satisfy your average customer in the strip clubs; it’s now all about how your body looks.
Let me explain. A friend of mine just had a baby and for whatever reason, she decided she wanted to be an exotic dancer. Keep in mind; she just had a baby so her body wasn’t up to par according to her and her dancing colleagues. So with advice from her friends, she went and got the “mommy makeover surgery” which is a terminology used to describe the type of plastic procedure that was done. This included liposuction/tummy tuck/breast augmentation/etc. Kind of like a package deal. Then on top of that, she got butt injections. She went from day to night and she quickly noticed the increase in money she made per night. Nothing changed; same regular customers, same dance routine, and even the same outfits. But because her assets were bigger her pockets also felt the effect.
Now I want to get into my professional OPINION when’s it comes to what men prefer and like. Personally, I’m not a fan of certain procedures and I know it’s a thin line but hear me out. I’m not a fan of something getting “put in” per se, but I’m ok with something getting “taken out”. For example, I wouldn’t be too happy if my significant other got breast implants/enlargement or butt injections/enlargement for the simple fact that it’s not real and it can actually cause harmful effects to your body. My goal is to appreciate my significant other natural physical features/appearance and not for a facade/mirage. Now on the flip side, if my significant other wanted to get a tummy tuck, liposuction, or anything that can possibly be beneficial to her health then I’m all for it. I know it’s a “catch 22” but that’s my opinion. The biggest argument I get is when men constantly lust over those females on social media with the plastic surgery. You would see thousands and thousands of likes for women exposing their fake bodies and most of those likes come from men just like me. I have to admit I’m guilty of that as well. We would double tap on an IG picture in a heartbeat, but that doesn’t mean we would want our significant others to look that particular way or even take that person home to mom. I’m a big believer in the natural appearance, there’s nothing sexier than that. After a while that physical attraction wears off and you are stuck knowing that your significant other have some type of silicone in her body.
I understand that one day we’ll get old, have a family, and our bodies aren’t always going to look the same. Life happens and in certain circumstances we may have to lead towards medical assistance in order to psychologically feel good about ourselves. I’m just against women seeking to appeal to the lowest form of man, which to me is immensely troubling, and an indictment of the gender stereotyping that so deeply influences our society. All in all, I’m all for doing whatever it takes to make you happy, make logically decisions and not on impulse. Do not confuse happiness with instant gratification. Avoid following the norm just too gain some type of advantage that one day will make you regret it.
