This weeks question comes from my recent post, The Choice for Plastic Surgery after Weight Loss. In the article I gave my reason for choosing to have plastic surgery after weight loss and I talked about how hard of a decision it was for me to make.
Most comments were from those who supported my decision and they shared their views on the plastic surgery issue. However, those who had a different point of view, and felt that surgery is not the answer, got the impression they weren’t able to contribute. Many saw the anti-surgery comments as negative and, in essence, unsupportive of my decision.
This is partially my fault as I made the post very personal. In reality this blog is really a personal journal made public so sometimes I just vent or rationalize for myself while letting others in. That sometimes doesn’t make a good forum for healthy debate.
I’m not naive, I don’t think everyone thinks my decision was the right one, but as I said in my original post, “My decision is one that not all will agree with but in the end it’s mine to make.”
That being said, I thought it would be beneficial to actually hear what peoples position are on plastic surgery without it being a supportive/unsupportive issue of my decision.
How do you feel about plastic surgery after a significant weight loss? Would you have surgery if you had the means?
Let’s try to keep it nice. I won’t take it personally, if you won’t. :~)
