(Word process, post on Bb, and bring copies for you, the instructor, and your group members on date due)

Speech Exploration of Sides of a Topic: Plastic surgery risks Thesis statement: People that desire plastic surgery should research the doctor and risks of their procedure before submitting to surgery. Whether or not you think it is right to go under the knife, you must admit it is pretty fascinating what doctors can do in the present day.

Content Introduction & Conclusion Points (**check different order for conclusion): I. Need Interest = (Different Audiences (for, against, undecided); For: Those of you that are for it should know that it can be helpful for those that feel the need to change some appearance on their body, but not doing research can result in unsatisfied patients’ outcomes, possibly paying far too much, and having problems with it in the future Against: If you are against it, think about it in a way that some people do it for self fulfillment. They do it for themselves to feel better about their looks, a lot of people don’t agree with that though., Some say those people are fake, but what if you broke your nose in a sport and it changed the entire appearance but had an option to fix it? I feel like most of you would say yes to fixing it. Undecided: Some say their lives are saved or changed because of surgery. They say they get treated differently by close friends or family and even complete strangers. It can be a great idea for someone that is self conscious with their looks, but could end badly if you do not research. There are doctors that are better than others, and some that charge an arm and a leg for any procedure. If you are going to get something as permanent and serious as plastic surgery, make sure you do your homework so you don’t end up looking worse than when you started. There are lots of success stories, but also many horror stories.

II. Specific Appeals (Best Action Step, Next Best Action, or at Least Do This Last Action Step ; We all want to be comfortable with ourselves, while some can live with their looks, others cannot and want change. Altering an appearance can be life changing in a really good, or really bad way. Surgery can easily vanish about ten years off someone’s face if done right, but if done incorrectly it could make someone’s face look like a Barbie doll and completely fake. Also lip enhancements sometimes are done too big and people look ridiculous.

III. Personal Benefits (Personal Motivators to get this audience to select an action step from II Appeals); If there is something you dislike about your looks or you scramble your face in an accident you can easily get it fixed. There is pretty much no limit to what you can make yourself look like. Some surgeries aren’t as noticeable but some are drastic.

IV. Personal Credibility (Personal Experience; Personal Observation of Others; and, Research Done)
I have a cousin that got a nose job which is called Rhinoplasty and she is so happy with how she looks. She had broken her nose many times in soccer and other sports so when she was old enough her parents let her straighten out her crooked nose into the beautiful straight one she remembered from before her athletic days. She also models so she is more comfortable doing her work knowing she doesn’t have to worry about how her nose looks in pictures. Her self confidence has gone up and not even too many people noticed she had work done. She researched a good doctor that had a good reputation and saw a lot of pictures of previous noses he had reconstructed.

V. Preview or review of main points of the Body of the Speech (Based on the One Method Selected Below) Getting surgery is a permanent change so first and foremost you have to be 100% sure it is what you want. You need to also do a lot of research and ask around for a good surgeon that will give you your...
