It's only natural!

Hello,

I got this from a small news item here in the Dutch papers. Nine out of ten women do not want any plastic surgery, Botox injections, liposuctions, etc. This was the conclusion of a poll of 500 women in the Netherlands. While more than half of the women said they didn't consider themselves very attractive, they do not want to change anything artificially.

***

I'm happy with the poll results, although I disagree with the attractive statement. Or rather, they majority may think they're not very attractive, but IMO there are many attractive women in the Netherlands (also many that are not attractive, but that's another story). Now, if I can only meet one of these women...

C ya!

Marty

It's a shame about the low self image...but then again I'm not one to talk.

I really think that the number of people who get plastic surgery of some kind is overrated. I think the media just makes it look like a lot of people are getting these procedures done, but in reality, I think a majority of women are comfortable in their own skin. Or maybe I'm just saying that because I know that no amount of surgery can help me

The women of the Netherlands probably don't want plastic surgery because they do not need it.
Like Aussies really.

Well, plastic surgery has its benefits. People with severe burns, for instance.

But for purely cosmetic reasons I don't think it's a good idea. Be happy with what you're given.

I agree. I think we hear about celebrities getting plastic surgery so often that it seems like more people get procedures done than they really do.

It's great to hear that Dutch women are happy in their own skin (although it's a shame that low body image is so common). I wonder what the results would be if they asked Americans?

i'll bet more americans would, simply because it's become a part of pop culture here...they have clinics where you can just walk in and get botox injections...plastic surgery isn't as big of a deal now to most.

personally, i think it's ridiculous to want to make yourself more "perfect"...every single person is perfectly made how God wants them to be. cosmetic surgery is just another way to play God...

Look what happen to Michael Jackson's nose from all the surgery he had on it. It doesn't even look normal.

lmao applauding noodle

Plastic surgery is for people with low self esteem and LOTS of money Of course there are things about me I'd love to change, but I would never pay to have my body altered.

Except for ink.


But no freakin' way would I ever inject anything into me or cut up something just for beauty!

Nothing wrong with me that a little more exercise and fewer thin mints wouldn't fix!

Cosmetic shmosmetic....as years go by, things will sag worse than before hence the need to do it again and again...need proof? Michael Jackson's mug.

Very well said and I definitely agree. I myself am happy with who I am and would never even think about go to any of those extremes to change how I look. I want to look like me and noone else.

that's because it's not! i heard he wears a prosthetic tip to make it look semi-normal. without it, it's just like skin and bone - like how the nasal area looks on a skeleton.

anyway, i wouldn't get any kind of plastic surgery for beauty reasons. sure, if i were burned from a fire i'd get it, but if i suddenly got really good insurance or became rich i wouldn't sit and say "well okay i can nip here and tuck there..."

i have many friends who have had plastic surgery to alter their looks because they felt they were not pretty enough. i on the other hand have no desire to have it.
