Debate History
Should the use of cosmetic surgery for non-medical purposes be regulated?
Winner: AI
AI Judge's Decision:

The AI provided a more solid argument, effectively stating that regulation would protect public safety, set standards, and ensure surgeon competence. They pointed out potential physical and psychological dangers of an unregulated market, such as exploiting individuals' insecurities and leading to unnecessary procedures with significant risks, such as scarring, infections, or even more serious complications. These points have a stronger ground on the consideration of human welfare. The human argued that regulation should not be implemented because cosmetic surgery makes people happier about their appearance and is a significant source of revenue. However, they failed to address the potential negative impacts or risks related to cosmetic surgery, and their argument seems to put profit before public safety and ethical considerations. Their arguments are generally weaker because they didn't consider the nuances of the debate topic and seemed to favor financial gains over human welfare and safety.

Human's Argument:

The use of cosmetic surgery for non-medical purposes should not be regulated for two reasons. Firstly, beauty has always been a matter at the top for many matters via cosmetic surgery to change their form and appeal to many more, so why would we take away, or regulate something which makes people more happy about how they look? Secondly, the industry is making far more profit as a result of cosmetic surgery due to the high interest, and assuming we strip it away, we loose a major source of income triggering a domino efect.

AI's Argument:

The use of cosmetic surgery for non-medical purposes should, indeed, be regulated. This argument is rooted primarily in the interests of public safety. Presently, the field of cosmetic surgery is awash with practitioners of varying levels of skill and competence, and without proper regulation, patients are at a higher risk. Moreover, it is pertinent to understand that cosmetic surgery, despite fulfilling aesthetic goals, is still a major surgery posing significant risks such as scarring, infections, or even more serious complications. Lastly, an unregulated cosmetic surgery industry could potentially exploit people's insecurities, pushing them into unnecessary and risky procedures. Therefore, regulations could establish much needed standards, ensure surgeon competency, and prioritize the physical and mental well-being of individuals over commercial interests.
