Cosmetic Surgery is Good for Well Being
Posted April 14, 2015 in Facelift
In the past many people thought that cosmetic surgery was vain and superficial. Researchers have now found that individual undergoing cosmetic surgery have improved well-being. Having a facelift will make you look younger and fresher which alters the way you are perceived by others.
Researchers recently conducted a study showing before and after facelift pictures of 170 people. They were asked to score each picture based on personality traits such as trustworthiness and likeability and social skills.
Michael Reilly from Georgetown University Hospital, Washington DC said: “What we really wanted to find out was, what are we accomplishing with facial plastic surgery?
“Rather than just making people look different, what I really wanted for my patients was to be able to authentically tell them, ‘I can make you look better’.”
Dr Reilly added that he hoped these results would change people’s perceptions about Cosmetic Surgery as a whole. We constantly judge other people’s personality based on their appearance, which has an effect on their emotional well-being.
The research also showed that those considered more beautiful tend to do better in job interviews and have an increased chance of being promoted – on account of others projecting positive attributes onto them.
