Cosmetic Surgery Gives You a Boost of Self Confidence
Many people consider cosmetic surgery because they are unhappy about the way they look, or because they want to feel better about themselves. Most patients are, simply put, potentially trying to fix something that they do not like about themselves.
If you are considering cosmetic surgery, you will be happy to know that new research actually reveals that cosmetic surgery in fact does boost self confidence. The research, conducted by the Center for Human Appearance at the University Of Pennsylvania School Of Medicine, found that an impressive 87% of patients felt satisfied following cosmetic surgery. The patients surveyed were particularly pleased with the improvements in their overall body image, as well as the part of their body that was transformed. The individuals that took part in the study also reported feeling less negative about their body image, in both work and social situations.
In short, the study shows that plastic surgery certainly can help you feel better about yourself. It may also change the way people respond to you in a social setting. It does not, however, magically transform you into someone else.
