With the pressure of looking the best you can in today's society, people are striving to have that perfect picture face and eye-catching body that would make anybody jealous. Plastic surgery has always been seen as the "quick fix" for someone trying to look a certain way and in the past years, the amount of people who have gotten plastic surgery procedures has increased significantly.

Plastic surgery defeats the whole purpose of natural beauty and with that comes the influence to change yourself to appeal to others. There are so many negatives to plastic surgery that these procedures should be limited and used only for those who actually need it.

Whether fifty years old or eighteen years old, people of all ages are getting cosmetic surgery procedures done. What's alarming is the reasons people are getting the surgeries and at how young they go to do it. Almost everyone who has gotten plastic surgery says they did in order to make them feel better about themselves and gain confidence. But then when you look at how young some of these patients are, you begin to worry on how far getting the "perfect looks" can influence a person to go. People should not have to resort to surgery in order to feel confident and comfortable in their own bodies, it is the pressures from society that makes them feel this way. Society should not want their youths or anyone to have to go through such extremes to fit in. Natural beauty should be cherished and not pushed to the side for cosmetic enhancements. People who get plastic surgery want to fix their mental state about themselves, but they don't realize that fixing the physical state won't always help. Cosmetic surgeries are influencing our younger generations to change themselves for others to fit in. This makes our society look like we don't appreciate...
