I know people who've had a nose job, and they've walked out feeling a million dollars, and their confidence is tenfold. Good on them! Natural beauty comes in all different shapes and sizes, but if you think surgery would right something you have a problem with, then why shouldn't you do it?
The public is not to see where power lies, how it shapes policy, and for what ends. Rather, people are to hate and fear one another.

B. F. Skinner
