How Plastic Surgery Increases Confidence
As cosmetic surgery continues to to grow in popularity, the myths and misconceptions surrounding plastic surgery are giving way to a more advanced view of an industry once considered shallow. The truth is, there are many reasons why patients choose to undergo cosmetic enhancement. More than ever, plastic surgery is proving itself as a means to not only improve a patient's appearance, but also a way to help boost self-esteem and confidence.
Not Just A Cosmetic Fix
Research shows a direct correlation between plastic surgery and an increase in overall satisfaction for many people. According to a recent study, after cosmetic plastic surgery procedures, people feel healthier and experience less anxiety. The study showed that in instances in which an area of the body was causing distress for a patient, there was a significant decrease in using anti-depressants after surgery to correct the issue. People also reported that after plastic surgery, they felt better about their appearance, and felt more physically attractive. Due to this increase in self-confidence, people experienced less anxiety and felt better in social settings.
Plastic surgery has also been known to help people feel younger. Those that feel younger tend to stay more active and many even wait longer to retire.
While plastic surgery is not a cure for low self-esteem, it can make people feel better about how they look. Research by the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine showed that 87 percent of people felt they had an improved body image after a plastic surgery procedure. Often times, when people feel better about how they look, they feel better overall. They are happier and enjoy being with others. They're comfortable in their bodies and their life.
