  7. From the Text “Just as ‘the latest’ in clothes can become a fashion, so can “the latest” in cosmetic surgery. Both have the same purpose: to improve physical appearance. Cosmetic surgery has become relatively popular in the united States because of the constant pressure from the media and other aspects of society and culture to look beautiful.”

  8. Problem / Purpose • matter of opinion • change physical appearance • “life choice” • A 2007 American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery survey found that 62% of Americans aged 18 and above were in favor of cosmetic surgery.

  9. Functionalist • good feelings = better citizens • health benefits • fitting in

  10. Conflict • male-centered oppression on women • media • health risks • loss of individualism

  11. Symbolic Interaction • “Not only is elective cosmetic surgery moving out of the domain of the sleazy, the suspicious, the secretively deviant, or the pathologically narcissistic, it is becoming the norm.” • personal vanity rather than social acceptance • extreme body modification • education

  12. Solution? • Is there even a problem? • education and organizations • If we could be happy with our bodies and appearance, plastic and cosmetic surgery would become obsolete.

  13. The Biblical Perspective • Psalm 139:14I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. • Proverbs 31:30Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. • 1 Samuel 16:7But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.”
