Recent studies reveal an intriguing connection between undertaking cosmetic treatment and enjoying both outer and inner rewards through boosted self-image and confidence. Let’s explore the data behind this life-changing phenomenon.
The Numbers Tell a Story
A 2019 survey study published in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal, revealed that 97 percent of cosmetic surgery patients reported definite long-term improvements in body image and quality of life from their procedure. As early as 1month post-surgery, patients said they felt better about the area treated. Specific areas of self-perception that show positive impacts include:
- Body image satisfaction
- Self-esteem and confidence
- Quality of life
- Comfort in social settings
- Professional presence
- Overall vitality and joy
Behind these statistics lie real individuals whose outlook and self-regard transform thanks to aesthetic intervention. Many share stories coloured by years spent feeling self-conscious about a body issue, until finally taking control to undergo a procedure that eliminates this insecurity. Free to enjoy newfound confidence, they embrace life’s opportunities with renewed verve and optimism.
Whilst cosmetic procedures clearly aim to enhance physical form, we, and others in our profession, witness every day how the psychological and emotional benefits this also brings, can lead to even more profound change in a person’s wellbeing and quality of life. Aesthetic intervention possesses the power to help individuals look better while feeling wholly uplifted in self-regard. By celebrating and supporting patients’ in their own transformative journeys., we hope we can also positively help transform cultural attitudes to this life-changing field.
