Script

"Cosmetic surgery.

That's where we get surgery to look more beautiful.

It's not because we have any disease or we're suffering any pain.

It's because we think we're not beautiful enough.

I think that this one is a mixed bag.

There are times when people really should have cosmetic surgery, they might have some blemish or scar or disfigurement and other people treat them badly because of it.

Discrimination in that case, cosmetic surgery could change your life for the better.

On the other hand, some people are already looking fine and then their vanity is driving them to have cosmetic surgery to be even more beautiful.

That becomes a little bit more questionable.

The doctors would say, hey, if you pay the money, I'll do it.

But I don't know if this is really safe or if it's good.

I can think of one pop star who got lots of cosmetic surgery and it didn't go well, it ended up making things worse.

Of course, that's my opinion.

So I don't think we should make any laws about it, but a lot of countries that have Medicare systems will not pay for your cosmetic surgery.

They'll only pay for necessary procedures if you need it because you're sick or in pain, they'll pay for it.

But if you just want to be pretty, they won't pay for it.

Use your own pocket money.

I think that's a good idea.

You have to consider looking deeply inside yourself.

If you want cosmetic surgery, what is driving you to undertake this drastic procedure? Because after all surgery is where they're cutting you open, you're exposing yourself to diseases damage.

Maybe the surgery will go wrong and you won't look better, you'll look worse and there's also the pain and the healing time and away from your friends and family.

So, what kind of motivators are working inside you to make you want cosmetic surgery? Think deeply before you take cosmetic surgery."
