Cosmetic surgery has become cheaper and more easily available. Many young women have the shape of their nose changed, or have their eyelids altered. Write a letter to your teenage friend, Pat, who is thinking of having cosmetic surgery. Point out some of the arguments for and against plastic surgery, and advise her on what she should do. Give reasons for your advice. Do not write any address. Sign your name ‘Chris Wong’.
I have heard that you are thinking of having cosmetic surgery. I know that having cosmetic surgery has long been common in
Apparently, it is easier to succeed in showbiz if you have a pretty face. Some surveys conducted have also shown that it is easier for good looking people to obtain achievement in career. Yes, it is kind of unfair but it is the truth. That’s why people want to become prettier by having cosmetic surgery. This can make their road ahead smoother. Besides, pretty face can always give people a good impression. Boys are always attracted to girls with pretty face, so are girls. After cosmetic surgery, you may have many boys running after you. You will also receive praise about your appearance from others. You may even have more friends, as you know, people like to make friends with pretty girls or handsome boys.

I think you should not change your face that your parents give you. Have you ever thought that after cosmetic surgery, you will not take after your parents anymore? It may hurt their hearts.

If cosmetic surgery raises negative emotions of your loved ones, I do not think it would be sensible of you to have it. This may cause unnecessary quarrels with your family.
As you can see, disadvantages outweigh advantages. Therefore, you better not take the risk. You should instead build up confidence from developing your potential talents rather than form outer beauty, which is like flowers, that wither. If you have good personality, doing good deeds every day, I am sure that you will be very beautiful – from inner to outer, like Mother Teresa.
I hope you will make a wise choice.
