Plastic surgery boosts happiness and self-esteem for those without ‘unreasonable’ expectations says a European study released last month.
Swiss Psychologists from Ruhr Universität and the University of Basel examined the psychological effects of plastic surgery on nearly 550 patients. Researchers interviewed patients before surgery, as well as three, six and twelve months afterwards.
Compared to those who had chosen not to have plastic surgery, the patients who opted for surgery “felt healthier, were less anxious, had developed more self-esteem and found the operated body feature in particular, but also their body as a whole, more attractive,” researchers reported.
In other words, if you have realistic expectations, cosmetic surgery can enhance how you look as well as feel, with a long-lasting confidence boost. Not surprisingly, we have noticed this phenomenon among our Denver patients for many years, who claim their enhancement has enriched their lives and self-esteem.
