Dear Dish-It, I Want to Get Plastic Surgery

Advice for teens about plastic surgery and issues with body image.
Advice About Body Image

Dear Dish-It, is here to whisper "ttyl after I've thought about this some more".


Dear Dish-It,

I'm really self-conscious because I have been made fun of a lot about my ears and now I'm too afraid to ask a girl out. I need some advice because I'm thinking about plastic surgery but I don't know how to tell my dad. Thanks.

Dear bloodmen15,

Peeps sometimes go to extraordinary lengths to change they way they look and it rarely improves their lives the way they had hoped. Whether it's starving yourself to be thin, taking supplements to gain muscle or having plastic surgery to make your ears smaller, quick fixes almost always backfire on you.


The kids who tease you about your ears may not stop just because you get them pinned back or reshaped. More than likely, these kids are just dumb bullies who will go on to bug you cuz you've had plastic surgery. And, is plastic surgery suddenly going to make you an incredibly outgoing person, able to ask out girls left, right and center? Probably not. Before you think about going under the knife, you should probably focus on breaking out of your shy-shell. Talking with your dad (or even a school counselor,) about why you're so unhappy is a good idea. They may have ideas to get you out of that self-confidence slump that don't involve plastic surgery. If in a few years you are still unhappy with those ears of yours, then maybe you can talk with a doctor about your options. For now, get out there and ask a girl out. I bet there are a ton of 'em out there dying to get to know you better - ears included.


So, ya gotta burnin' question? Need some love directions? Thinkin' 'bout stuff like depression, sex,how ya feel 'bout YOURSELF (that's called "self-esteem"), boyfriends, girlfriends, losin' old friends, bullyin' or peer pressure, but too scared to ask the parents? Don't be scared to .

It feels like no one cares about me at school. I really can't trust anybody either. I started to quit eating at home and at school only eating snacks every now and then. I am also losing Weight. I used to get called fat and i wasn't even fat. I have been abused by people who say my butt is smexy and huge and it's not. I have even been slapped on by them. I tell my mom and dad that i've been called fat and my dad ignore's me and continues whatever he's doing. I'm getting to the point again where i'm losing my temper and emotions right on the spot. I can't be bipolar cause it has to run in the family and my mom says i don't have it. People get mad at me when i don't laugh at their jokes when they expect me too cause i really don't listen. But when i say something funny they roll their eyes and give me mean looks. I don't even want to be around people that much. I just want to be outside in the fresh air during school but it's high school so their's no outside time. I also fake smile's at people to make them happy. But i just hurt on the inside. I just want advice.  Hi there. I'm sure you have people who care about you at school, just sometimes it's hard to see it. Dear, you have to eat. I assure you, you're not fat. (smexy isn't necessarily a bad thing)  You have to understand, that people say things just because they can, or to make themselves feel better. Never give them that opportunity, just ignore them. When you're about to lose your temper, think of something that makes you really happy.  If you need someone to talk to, you have your guidance consular, trust me I have social anxiety, and reallly hate talking about my problems, I find it easier for me, to message them. It's their job to listen, but not only that, they really care for all of their students. Talking helps, believe me.

Things happen for a reason, normally to make others stronger. Trust me, nothing is worth taking your own life. If you need to talk I'm here, however I would suggest you talking to an adult.  Friends come and go. you have family, and if not, you have me, Trust me, it's not worth it. please, don't.
