Plastic surgery can’t make you younger or more beautiful, because beauty is in your eyes, isn’t it? It’s in your soul; you can’t strap it on.

Surgical Anatomy is, to the student of medicine and surgery, the most essential branch of anatomical science, having reference more especially to an accurate knowledge of the more important regions, and consisting in the application of anatomy generally to the practice of surgery.

I’m proud of myself. I could break and go get all this plastic surgery and get my nose fixed and get lipo or do whatever, but I haven’t chosen to do that because I know I’m a great person. I’m pretty damn hot, if you ask me.
— Khloe Kardashian
What I’ve never understood is why some women use plastic surgery to make themselves more attractive to men. The most beautiful woman is someone who’s happy and is always smiling.

I had throat surgery. We had to check that out and make sure it wasn’t cancerous. I had a polyp on my vocal cord, so I had that taken out.
— Zakk Wylde
Get a scalpel, and practice just, say, cutting a piece of meat or something like that. You sort of learn how you want to hold your fingers, and that sort of thing, and try to become graceful when you operate.
— Denton A. Cooley
I got the bill for my surgery. Now I know what those doctors were wearing masks for.
— James H. Boren
Surgeons must be very careful when they take the knife! Underneath their fine incisions stirs the Culprit – Life!

As a surgeon, you have to have a controlled arrogance. If it’s uncontrolled, you kill people, but you have to be pretty arrogant to saw through a person’s chest, take out their heart and believe you can fix it. Then, when you succeed and the patient survives, you pray, because it’s only by the grace of God that you get there.
— Mehmet Oz
I don’t happen to approve of plastic surgery. I think God put plastic surgeons on this earth for good reasons – people get burned or people might have a nose like Pinocchio and that has to be fixed. But to just chop yourself up to look a few years younger? You could come out looking like a Picasso picture.
— Iris Apfel
I have had some cosmetic surgery, especially after I lost weight and stuff, and I’ve had my breasts lifted – but not injected. That would scare me to death, anyway.
— Dolly Parton
Brain surgery couldn’t happen without the patient’s own active voice to guide the work. The patient is part of the surgical team here, perhaps the most important part, and above all, that’s what makes neurosurgery different.
— Sam Kean
There are a lot of myths about my injuries. They say I have broken every bone in my body. Not true. But I have broken 35 bones. I had surgery 14 times to pin and plate. I shattered my pelvis. I forget all of the things that have broke.
— Evel Knievel
A good surgeon doesn’t just concentrate on technical ability, but also on the appropriateness of what you’re doing.
— Benjamin Carson
A physician is someone who knows everything and does nothing.
A surgeon is someone who does everything and knows nothing.
A psychiatrist is someone who knows nothing and does nothing.
A pathologist is someone who knows everything and does everything too late.
I have had heart surgery three times, so I know what it was like to have pins and needles stuck in you.
— Josh Ryan Evans
If the operation is difficult, you are not doing it properly.
