[1] In modern society, judging by appearances is wide spread.
So, people lose weight excessively or have plastic surgery.
[2] Especially these days, plastic surgery is a hot topic of discussion.
Some people have plastic surgery because of scars, birth defects, or damage caused by accidents.
However, Most people have it because they want to be beautiful.
They want to change part of their body, for example, jaw shape, bigger eyes, higher nose, etc….
Especially, entertainers often have plastic surgery.
For example, Seo Woo, G.NA, Park Bom, Kim Ah-joong, Han Ye-seul, Jang Yoon-joo, etc.[3]

However, Plastic surgery has side effects.

In addition side effects cause depression and suicide.
So, plastic surgery can give hope to some people, but can bring despair to others.
