Cosmetic Surgery-----8/10 (Wed.)

Hey dear YOYOs,

Surprise!!! I am the host of Wed.’s meeting (8/10)
I know I am running out of time……
How are you guys day? Having fun so far?
Ok, this time I like to ask you to join the discussion about“Cosmetic Surgery”.
Used to be used as a medical treatment for those who are suffering severe damage on their faces or bodies where remodeling is required. However, the growing number of operations carried out show that cosmetic surgery is widely used to alter one’s look for other purposes, to make one more attractive, gain popularities , more self-confident and so on.

We all say “Beauty is only the skin deep”, but how many people can really put it into action?
You never unconsciously judge a person by their looks? or never decline a date because of their looks?
Everything has its positive and negative side, so pls take a few min. and read the following links.

Questions:

Session I

1.What do you think about the “Cosmetic Surgery”? What kind of people would need a cosmetic surgery? From psychological point, do you think it will help people feel better about themselves and be more confident? Any real case around you?

2.if your friend/family member is having hard time with low self-esteem and consider having an operation, what would you say? If you opposed to the idea, what would you suggest them to do?

3.Assuming that you had a surgery, would you tell your bf/gf, husband/ wife about it ? Or rather take it to the grave? Do you think you can accept a person who is artificial to be a life time partner?

Break Break Break

Session II

4.A good looking would help you in your career, would you consider trying to take the surgery? Or under what circumstances would you consider the operation? Do you have any part of body you are not satisfied and want to alter it?

5.The tech of cosmetic surgery is advanced and popular today but why there are still lots of people refuse to take? Any known side effects?


I think the most important thing in the gathering is that everyone of you speck as much English as you can, so just take easy and enjoy.

Bye for now and see you guys then.

Maggie

Extreme Maker Over is the a popular TV show on plastic/cosmetic surgery plus other emotional consultations in an overly dramatic fashion. It is very inspiring to see a person transform from sad to happy, ugly to beautiful. That is the show's main selling point.

Without a dictionary, can you tell what "bariatric" is?

The term bariatrics was created around 1965 from the Greek root baro ("weight," as in barometer) and suffix -iatrics ("a branch of medicine," as in pediatrics).
