“What’s the whole point of being pretty on the outside when you are so ugly on the inside?” This quote is saying about the valuation of a person is inside of her or him, not the beauty outside. In recently years, plastic surgery has grown in the Medical field in many countries around the world. It has become a booming in the United State, the plastic surgery patients are both men and women, especially women (91%). Perhaps, people who after have the plastic surgery will be prettier than normal appearance. Beside the beauty of this kind surgery brings, people almost forget about its risks related to their life. Clearly, the plastic surgery is increasing in the United State, Japan, South Korean, China, Thailand; however, how much do people know about the issues and danger during the process of surgery? In fact, there accidents that are happened affect to patients, such as: disability, disfiguration, and even death. Even though it also has positive effects, negative impacts on people’s life and health are seriously. Therefore, the plastic surgery should be banned; however, some people still think that they have the right whether they want to do the plastic surgery or not. The first reason to ban the plastic surgery is to help people avoid psychological problem. Psychologists and surgeons find out that there are psychiatric phenomena affect to patients of plastic surgery, such as: body dysmorphic disorder (BBD) and the suicide risk. According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, “BBD is designated as an Axis I disorder that is characterized by an individual’s intense preoccupation with an imagined defect in appearance.” According to the article, patients with BDD who seek plastic surgery have higher percentage than normal ones. They expect to change their looking usually and more beautiful. In fact, having surgery on patients with BDD will seriously affect to their symptom, mania or lead to increase in depression. Following to Finnish and Danish women, the increase risk of suicide on patients have breast augmentation is high. Nothing is perfect 100% in medical; sometimes, there will have some accidents to patients. If the result of surgery is not like what patients expected before, they will be shocked and anxious, depress, stressful, even commit suicide. On the other hand, when the patients are satisfied with the results, as soon as possible they will change their looking again because it is difficult for them to be satisfied with any looking. According to Ovreberg, “My results show that those who want surgical intervention, such as breast enlargement, have an increased risk of suicide and are often depressed.” As the result, the plastic surgery should be prevented as soon as possible to protect health and psychology of people from its risks. Although plastic surgery can help a person have a good looking, external beauty does not define her or him. According to the article, “Advertisements show plastic surgery as a shortcut option for all problems – finding a boyfriend, getting a great job, landing that great promotion/deal, being popular with the opposite gender and so on.” In fact, the plastic surgery is described like a magic that can give people the beauty they dreamed about. Unfortunately, the beauty under the knife cannot define the value of a person. The cosmetic surgery cannot change a person as much as he or she thinks. Changing the outside would not help people more kindly or friendly, even it negatively affects to health of them. Moreover, the best relationship depends on the truth, merit and being honest more than looks. Moreover, an unfair society has created; people will think that the rich will have good looking by money while poor one will not. Thus, the plastic surgery should be removed from medical field instead of using it for creating an unreal beauty. Another reason why people should ban plastic...
