It's a pretty long video, but in summary I appreciated the way she approached the subject. She knows that not everyone will agree with her choices, but they were HER choices to make. She had people send in questions, which she answered and I didn't think to ask a question until I was watching the video. My question revolves around Christianity and plastic surgery.
There's the general opinion that Christians should be against body modification because it means that you might be saying that God's creation is not good... that you're not happy with the way God made you. In the Bible He has said that we are wonderfully made.
That being said though, I don't believe that plastic surgery or body modification is necessarily bad. There are some cosmetic surgeries or procedures that improve your quality of life e.g. closing up cleft palates, straightening your teeth, etc. When it comes to things like tummy tucks, boob jobs, nose jobs, I feel like it's up to the person. It's not my place to judge. I don't know what mental or psychological issues they may or may not be facing, that causes them to choose to modify one or several body parts. And yes, I know that for a whole lot of people, it's nothing more than vanity. Again, it's not my place to judge. If any of my friends had plastic surgery, I wouldn't drop them - I'd more likely be curious about the whole thing and how they feel afterwards.
But I want to hear your opinion. Do you think plastic surgery is wrong? If you had the money and chance, would you modify any part of your body?
FUN FACT: I wore braces in secondary school for a few weeks. They were too painful so I took them out. I now wish I had braved the pain.
