Home » #1 Self Esteem Booster? Plastic Surgery Wins the Race
Many individuals decide, at one point or another in their lives, that they want some kind of elective surgery. Sometimes, people decide to forego them, seeing them as a luxury. Recent studies, however, suggest otherwise.
There are a constantly increasing number of reasons that an individual might elect to undergo some type of cosmetic surgery. Looks are not always the sole motivating factor anymore, though physical appearance is still a very big part of the equation. Many, however, have elected to get some type of cosmetic surgery following an appearance-altering injury, or after some type of serious medical procedure. Plastic surgery is often regarded as a luxury procedure, reserved for the rich that can afford expensive treatment. Lately, though, scientists have been finding that it can have positive benefits beyond improved looks.
A relatively recent study conducted in Europe actually produced some very convincing information when it comes to the positive psychological benefits that often come with cosmetic surgical procedures like plastic surgery. This particular study covered close to 550 patients of cosmetic surgery, interviewing them both before and then several times after their surgical procedure. Much to the delight of the scientists conducting the study, an overwhelming majority of the patients were found to be enjoying life more and experience much higher levels of self-esteem following their procedures. They dealt with less anxiety, and experienced better health overall.
More and more people are turning to cosmetic surgery, and this is not just because technological advancements have made the procedures a bit more affordable. Some might be quick to point towards a fixation with things like fame and celebrity as the reasons behind the growing cosmetic surgery trend, but there are other factors at play. It’s been shown, by the aforementioned study and several others that cosmetic surgical procedures have many benefits, in addition to cosmetic improvements. More individuals are realizing that cosmetic surgery can help improve their self-confidence, reduce their anxiety, and generally help to improve the quality of their life.
So-called cosmetic surgery is being recognized by more and more healthcare professionals as having benefits that extend beyond the physical appearance. Sure, cosmetic surgery can correct some serious physical issues, but it can also help an individual resolve serious psychological ones as well. While it’s not any kind of cure-all, nor is it a magic bullet for self-esteem or anxiety issues, it’s been shown to help by making patients feel a lot more confident and empowered. Normally, we don’t have a choice in the way we look. Cosmetic surgery, however, empowers a lot of patients by giving them the option to look the way they’ve always wanted.
Doctors around the world are starting to recognize the many benefits that come with elective cosmetic surgery. Not only does it help with looks, but it’s been shown to aid with self-esteem and other psychological issues, as well.
