    We are obsessed with external looks. I always found it interesting that the greatest man on earth, Jesus, was never given any physical description at all in the Bible. We have no idea what he looked like, how tall he was, the color of his hair, etc etc. But of course we have paintings and sculptures of him everywhere - because we seem to need to 'see' him in our minds. But God sees us as we truly are - he sees our hearts. We cannot hide or use makeup to cover the flaws of our souls. King David was as beautiful to God old wrinkled on his death bed as he was as when he was a young man in his prime. Too bad we cannot see others and ourselves through God's eyes.

    I think plastic surgery is a personal choice and its okay to want to feel beautiful. I just think that Heidi took it a little too far, she was already pretty in the first place.

    I agree with Loren - If plastic surgery (in moderation) makes us feel better and improves self esteem its ok. But when you see beautiful young girls spending thousands of dollars to make there breasts larger or their noses smaller - then its makes me feel our society is brain washing us to believe that pursuit of physical 'perfection', youth and monetary wealth will make us happy. But studies show that the happiest segment of society is old poor black women. Which coincidentally is the most religous segment of our society. So people that have neither youthful good looks or lots of money are the happiest people - guess the TV shows and commercials and magazines have been lying ?

    Food for thought :
    Breast implants linked with suicide in study
    Maggie Fox, Health and Science Editor
    (Reuters) - Women who get cosmetic breast implants are nearly three times as likely to commit suicide as other women, U.S. researchers reported on Wednesday. Women with breast implants also had a tripled risk of death from alcohol and drug use.
