Most of them would have been boob jobs or eye opening/widening. A few would have been nose raising/straightening.

It's a shae that western influence has infiltrated to that level. Korean girls are quite pretty as they are.

When one can spend time and money to get 'Harvard' on their resume, what's wrong in altering that slightly out-of-shape nose or enlarging those unnoticeable breasts? To each their own! If you want to please the Investment Banking firms, so be it! In the same way, if you want your husband or the entire male sector of the population to take more notice, so be it love! Reply

From my view society seems to have forgotten that age in itself is beauty too, but perhaps my perception at current is a bit romantic, and maybe with time it will change but maybe I'm not fit to speak on such a topic just yet being currently still in the very throes of my youth,though currently I myself would not be inclined to surgically enhance my body and would rather lean towards ageing gracefully.

frilly says: I would not go under the knife for my face unless I had some disfigurement but although aged 76 I would be first in line for a breast reduction if I was allowed an anaesthetic.
I have suffered with trying to buy bras large enough for my breasts. Even my husband agrees it is an almost impossible job. I am size 22 I / J. Trying to buy a bra that gives really good support, fail to give me a "mono boob" I have to resort to try buying online as no one anywhere near where I live sells bras with large cups unless you are size 10 / 16.
Where do they think women who had large breasts when they were young have put their breasts because they have grown older. They just do not melt unfortunately.
Large breasts run in my family, one of my granddaughters at the age of 16 was only size 12 but after removal of a kilo fro each breast she is still a E/F Cup fitting.
Her mother has just had a breast reduction & had 500 grams removed from each breast. I so envy her, she looks as if she has lost a ton of weight but she is still an "H" Cup
Anyone know of any really good Bra selling place online but not Big Girls Don't Cry Any More. They are struggling to try to help. I will be eternally grateful

I just don't trust people that are looking after a big part of my body such as my face because it could go wrong and I could look even more horrible than being in the car accident. But if it was something like heat radiation I would probably have no choice. Reply

As a young 20 year old person I feel that I would have to say that I have definitely considered it. The only thing holding me back would be the cost and how long the process would take and the risks involved. There are also certain things I would and wouldn't do and I think that once I got to a certain point in my life, it wouldn't worry me as much any more because we all get older and changes happen because of that. I guess that although it is something I have considered, I probably won't actually do it. Sport and exercise are much better options for me. Reply

There is 2 reasons for this 1 reason is because I can not breath properly the way it is. 2nd reason is because it is very noticeably crooked. Call it vanity if you like but if I don't have to live with a bad nose I'm not going to. My sunglasses do not sit right and causes headaches because of it. So I guess there are many reasons to get this done but even if it was purely for looks I would probably still have it done. So I guess I have to say I am more then willing to go under the knife for so called beauty although I would never be classed as a BEAUTY even with plastic surgery. Paying for it though is entirely a different matter. I would not pay those outrageous prices for the sake of looking a little better:) Reply

Kikkja says: I would but not for drastic surgery. I consider having botox to get rid of small lines around my eyes or forehead. I would as a former breast cancer survivor consider having breast augumentation and in the process an increase in breast size; however I would not have silicone implants, I get the fat sucked out of my butt & thighs and replaced into my breasts. It seems safer. Maybe when I am older I'd consider having some fillers. But that is as far as I would go. Reply

It won't make the object of your unrequited love any more interested, nor will it solve any other relationship problems. I had a nose job nearly 40 years ago and have never regretted it. My nose is now smaller and straighter which means that I can wear short hair without my nose dominating my face. Reply

Ed13 says: In today's world, there is more pressure to go to newer and more drastic measures in the name of beauty. As a young 20 year old person I feel that I would have to say that I have definitely considered it. The only thing holding me back would be the cost and how long the process would take and the risks involved. There are also certain things I would and wouldn't do and I think that once I got to a certain point in my life, it wouldn't worry me as much any more because we all get older and changes happen because of that. I guess that although it is something I have considered, I probably won't actually do it. Sport and exercise are much better options for me. Reply

I believe I stunted my own growth due to my love of running since I was a teenager, but whatever the case, they simply never quite developed and I didn't feel like I had a real woman's body. I am so confident and happy now with my body. I had the procedure done in australia by a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon and the whole experience was faultless. Yes, I can't run as much as I used to now (I just use the cross trainer instead) but I definitely prefer the more womanly me. Sometimes this kind of thing can actually make u a much happier and confident person so it's completely up to the woman if she feels this is what she needs that or not. Reply

says: I had the opportunity to have facial dermabrasion several years back to fix acne scars, but the cost and the discomfort factors put me off. I do not regret that YET but this may change as I get older and my looks (which were never that great) fade. There are always going to be little things I'm dissatisfied with about myself but being useful and valued is not the same as being pretty.

If I had a disfigurement e.g. a large nose or a huge wart on my face that was detrimental and in the way of normal eating etc. I would consider it. We I believe are all individuals and have a certain 'beauty' anyway. Unless one was in a car crash and had a huge disfigurement then I would but not for vanity alone.

I dread to think of the side-effects and long term problems this type of surgery will have on many people in the future - some are like "guinea pigs" for unscrupulous individuals wishing to cash in on other people's insecurities. I personally am against it unless it is for extreme psychological reasons, or as you said earlier, for an illness or after an horrific accident. Reply

Freedomy says: I love watching beautiful men and woman of the world. I have just seen about 50 photos being taken of people around the world. The camera was so good, every wrinkle was shown, there was no detail missed. And it gave so much character to the face, told of hard times, struggles, wonderful smiles where the lines along the forehead are emphasised. And then I see this question.

I often wondered do I think so poorly of going under the knife because I don't have the cash to do it, or am I scared of the wrong outcome, but after seeing these photos - I just don't want to be afraid of growing up. I don't want my physical beauty to be compromised. I want my wrinkles, sunspots and all the nooks and crannies to go with it. I am a proud woman but I simply don't want to be taken in my this need to see physical beauty going under the knife.

And then I wonder as my years go on, and I turn 60, will I be one of the few that looks 60 when all my 60 year old friends look 30, 40 or even 50 and so be it. I love physical beauty but I also love that I am cool with what age is - a progression in life and I don't want that cut off. Reply

MacMan says: I think this is a very personal decision. I had surgery fairly early in my late teens to improve my ears (pinning them back) and nose (removing a slight ridge), and it dramatically increased my confidence and appearance. Visually these were pretty subtle changes and improved rather than changed my appearance, and I think this is pretty key.

Cosmetic surgery and procedures are much more affordable and accessible than they were 20 years ago, today you can go to your local saloon and get fillers and Botox done at the same time you get your hair cut. But the question that arises, is this a bad thing? Ultimately I think people have the right to choose what they do and like anything use some common sense.

Popular procedures in Korea include double eyelid surgery (which involves the removal or reposition of tissue around the eyelid to open up the eye), V-line jaw reduction (which involves making a small incision and shaving the mandible to give the jawline a slimmer more angular appearance) and rhinoplasty.

This is just a sample of some of the procedures gaining popularity and while some of these procedures seem quiet extreme, you also need to take in some cultural context. Korea is a highly advanced, competitive, image conscious and progressive market, adopting new social and market trends and well before other markets are even in the planning stage. The Australia market by comparison in terms of trend adoption and general consumer market maturity is well behind. So social, cultural or product trends you might see in Korea or more progressive Asian economies don't really find their way into our market for several years if at all.

But even keeping that in mind, you just have to look at the increased number of Australians heading to Asia for cosmetic surgery to see that there is a demand. While more straight forward cosmetic procedures such as Botox and fillers are relatively commonplace. Had you said to someone you were going to a doctor to get botulism toxin injected into your face 20 years ago people would have called you insane, but today these procedures are fairly commonplace.

Ultimately the decision to undergo cosmetic surgery is a very personal choice and really needs to be left up to the individual, if it improves their appearance and self-confidence I really don't see that as a bad thing.

Putting foreign objects into your body is an old one, so is what we eat 90% of every day.
Risks are part of any surgery and if you are also strapped for cash and needing to finance the op then you shouldn't be doing it.
It is really unfortunate that some women have had complications yet about 95% of these cases are not done with a credited and member of the board of the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons
Sadly enough many doctors claim themselves to be "cosmetic surgeons" whom are just your local GP as there is NO such thing as a "cosmetic surgeon" will prey on the desperate and gullible which is deplorable.
Certainly there are women who might think that if they have a certain procedure done that it will be life changing for their boyfriends not for themselves.
Any Accredited Plastic Surgeon will not tolerate this attitude and will give the client a psychological assessment on the spot as they are qualified to pick up the signs and know how to deal with this type of behavior.
My girlfriend who has also had her breasts done was told by her doctor who was not for the original procedure that she has breast cancer after a routine mammogram and NOT due to the implants .
The good news was that the implants that were placed on top of the muscle where the tumor was growing had stopped and latched onto the implant because there was no where else to grow.
They saved her life you could say.
Women who scoff at others instead of giving support to their sisters should not be so critical of others , generally the claws come out whenever they see someone attractive, it is a shame that they can't have plastic surgery on their personalities instead.

But then, Korea is very misogynistic.

If accurate surveys were done of each country, they are probably all within a reasonable % of each other. The hype about how everyone should look does not help.

Some years it's a Barbie Doll / hourglass figure, others it's having a rump the size of a small planet (Kardshian style - I guess some find it attractive, but I'm not sure why).

It did make a difference, but I only had it done the once. I felt that it did improve the "tired" appearance in my face but I was unable to maintain it because of the cost involved. Strangely enough, after having it done, my forehead wrinkles don't bother me so much now that they have reappeared...I seem to be a little more accepting of my face's ageing process and maybe a little less self-critical.

Unfortunately the younger one who is a 20 months old and has fair skin and was in his stroller most of the time got his face sunburnt while on the swing for a few minutes. Luckily the stroller has a really large hood on it. He was only on the swing for about 10 minutes. We put Aloe Vera Gel on it for 3 days -twice a day and the redness and soreness completely disappeared. He only complained when we touched it but we noticed the redness within a few hours.

Most women pursue some sort of regime to ensure their skin lasts longer from putting on a hat when they go out in the sun, to a rigorous skin care regime, no body likes to age, and I agree it is so important to embrace ourselves and our flaws. BUT if a man or woman feels the need to alter themselves to have the self confidence to go to the beach or wear a certain outfit I agree that they should go for it.

I went under the knife, but not for beauty! To save my life.....!
Depending on how you view it, I did have a major breast reduction, by 6 sizes. It was essential after my huge (160kg ) weight loss and what a relief! No more aching back.
I have numerous scars on my body and had considered plastic surgery as they did bother me a lot, and my partner was not happy with them, insisting they be covered.
Once I found out the cost here to have them removed/changed, I changed my mind. Partner left!
To go overseas -anywhere- is not an option as I have seen a few people who went to Asia for theirs and the results were not pretty, cost more to have them fixed once the problems were seen, and one could not be fixed the damage was so bad. Reply

If you cannot change it, then don't pay someone thousands to do so. If boob job gives you confidence, what does that say about you? A nose job changed everything, what does that say about you? All I am saying is people who love you, don't see you for your boobs, your nose or a wrinkle or two.

We know who we can rely on, who lies, who we can party with, who keeps our secrets, who is on our side. We know who the bitch is, who is the expert with guys or girls and who are the toughies, the nerds or the geeks. We do use she is pretty, he is handsome but these are not the traits we rely on.

I feel so sad that young girls and now men are getting gift cards or graduation presents at the plastic surgeons. All I am saying is resist. You don't have to because others are. This is one of our dilemmas. And because we never see wrinkles anymore, I love mine and those on others. But wrinkless or not that is not what I would rely on you for. Reply

ninna says: I would love to have a bust reduction, being a DDD cup it is a lot of extra weight on your shoulders & once you develop arthritis in the shoulders & neck is becomes painful. Would be nice to have a smaller bust where I can get normal bras & not have to shop around to find my size, would also be nice to be able run around with the kids without such a bouncy set of boobs. I have had to wear bras all my life & when I was pregnant sizing was almost at the stage of having to get them made.
I had what they call plastic surgery many years ago to have a large plate inserted into my forehead where they had to remove the bone for brain surgery after an accident but it still is not the same as it was before the op & it was an absolute necessity. Fortunately they used a new technique & the only scar I have is hidden in my hair so only the hair dresser has to see it.
So yeah I would undergo cosmetic surgery for that purpose or to remove excess skin for those who lose a huge amount of weight & are left with unsightly loose skin which will never shrink naturally. I would never consider having cosmetic work done on my face just out of vanity, wrinkles add character to yr face & tell a story all of their own. Take care of your skin while you are young & you reap the benefits when you get to my age, I rarely wore makeup when I was younger & always made sure it came off at the end of the day if I had to use it. A good moisturiser with SPF & a good routine as well as diet will help your skin age better. Reply

If you're not happy with yourself to a point where you want it changed, then I say go for it. I personally just wouldn't. Reply

says: I would not go under the knife in the name of beauty. Why? Because we are created as God image and by going under the knife, we basically disagrees with our image and what God has created. Going under the knife to look pretty is not the best idea, there are many questions to be asked before doing so, such as What happen when you get old? or What is the after effects?. If someone wants to look pretty, I think it is better to go to a dermatologists or use a skincare product that are world-know or world's number 1 or go to a beauty salon and ask for make-up tutorial. There are many things you should consider before going under the knife in the name of beauty. Reply

saramerc says: Yes and i have .
And so happy i did.
I was tired of looking tired and have always liked to look and feel my best and after trying other non invasive treatments that didn't deliver i wanted to something about it for me and no one else and certainly not for the likes of society .
i had my eyelids lifted and the results are awesome.
I can see eyeshadow again along with m eyelashes as i love to wear mascara.
For the small percentage of women who "can't stop", then it is the plastic surgeon's responsibility to asses the patient as there are often more deeper underlying issues going on.
I really think it would be nicer if women who condemn this sort of thing should show a bit more sisterhood towards each other and offer a little support.
Men on the other hand do not need to bother in keeping up appearances because they see each other as equal and i never hear them squawk about the way someone else looks behind their back.
Instead they often are overheard how great they look.
Men don't compare themselves like women do.
As long as media will be around and as long as we keep buying their magazines plastic surgery will thrive for good and bad reasons.

If they or me had the cash, we'd do it.
I certainly would have a few procedures and ongoing treatments.
Who wouldn't it?
A quote: There are no ugly women, only poor ones..
This was from one of those reality shows that transformed bedraggled, mousy, limp-haired, buck-teethed and overweight women into models.
They were gorgeous after that. Reply

Angieg says: My friend had rhinoplasty because the tip of her nose could be touched with the tip of her tongue, so fair enough - her confidence has been restored despite the post op agony. Personally though, I am so fed up with being bombarded about people's looks ... everyone of us is going to age and I reckon it looks ridiculous when cosmetic surgery is really obvious on an older person. Young people are under so much pressure just having to grow up without vanity being shoved infront of them at every turn. Reply

If a person has a feature on their face that saps their confidence and they have the money and capacity to 'fix' it, why not? I do think there needs to be more emphasis on personal acceptance rather than the constant bombardment of 'perfection' in our society though. Reply
