New research has revealed
that having plastic surgery can
help to boost a person’s confidence and make them feel better about them self.
Carried out by the
University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine's Center for Human Appearance, an investigation found 87 per cent of patients
were left with a feeling of satisfaction after undergoing a procedure.
Respondents said this was because they felt happier with their overall
appearance, as well as the appearance of the area on which
the work was done. Women in particular seemed to experience a confidence
boost, as they claimed they felt better in both work and social situations.
Plastic surgeon Professor
Laurence Kirwan said that this kind of improvement in an individual’s self
confidence could do wonders for their career – something that is particularly
important in the current economic downturn.
What is more, surgery is
now a lot safer than it used to be.
“Another important point
worth mentioning is that modern technology has drastically reduced the number
of complications arising from traditional forms of some of the most popular
procedures,” Professor Kirwan stated.
