Plastic surgery in general is something that I'm torn on because I do think that we should all have the right to do make a decision about our body that hopefully makes us happier and more confident. On the other hand, I kind of hate that anyone feels the need to go under the knife to feel happy and confident. I want society to change to be more embracing of differences, rather than taking that decision away from the individuals. And then when you add the racism element into it, it's even worse.
It's kind of weird to me that we seem to say that only certain features can be considered beautiul. Humans seem to be hardwired to notice and enjoy novelty, so you would think that we would really embrace diversity of looks.
