cosmetic surgery gives us self-esteem. It helps people who lost their face terribly.

Disappointed with the quality of the debate here.

Cosmetic surgery doesn't 'cause' low self esteem. In fact, it has been proven to improve self esteem in some cases. eg. rhinoplasty (nose job). There is a high rate of satisfaction and improved self esteem post surgery. What about body sculpting post massive weight loss, where essentially people end up with large flaps of redundant skin? Surgery in this instance would remove the reminder that they have lost a huge amount of weight literally hanging off of them. Plus, can you imagine the discomfort from kilos of skin flapping around??

And what exactly is the definition of 'cosmetic' surgery here? e.g. kids with craniofacial deformities often need multiple surgeries. Some of it is 'cosmetic' to appear 'normal'. Is this wrong to help a young child's self esteem? To prevent a life time of bullying? As you can imagine, this is completely different to wanting it done due to physiological issues such as body dysmorphic disorder - but depending on your definition they may both be classified as 'cosmetic'.

But why used a hundred words when 2 would do. Obviously exhibit Michael Jackson was the polar opposite of the con. Only used 2words and in them is a reason to think about tightening of the laws. Eg he's had a beautiful face then completely maimed himself. Mental health reasons in there 2. 2 words not words for words sake. Jeez

Who won the debate:Vote Checkmark-
Reasons for voting decision: Hard to call this a debate, but Con actually gave a reason, while Pro gave an example of someone who had cosmetic surgery, with no reasoning behind it at all.

Reasons for voting decision: Not actually a debate but: Con gives a reason, pro just gives an example, ONE example, out of the thousands or millions of the people who have done cosmetic surgery. Thanks, Adil Muhammad, Qatar
