Can Cosmetic Surgery Boost Self-Esteem?
In 2016 alone, there were 1,780,987 cosmetic surgery procedures throughout the country. With so many people varying in age, gender, etc. What is the big deal with cosmetic surgery? Does cosmetic surgery really make a difference about how you see yourself? Should kids at corner canyon be allowed at such a young age? Cosmetic Surgery can boost your self-esteem.
To begin with, cosmetic Surgery will help you feel more confident. According to the article entitled "Nose Job Boosts Student's Self Esteem" by Clevens, Ross A. it states, ““ Lewis added that after surgery: "I feel a lot more confident ... and that's really nice." In other words, one patient after having a surgery concluded that she felt lots more confident with herself, than she did prior to the surgery. Therefore, having a cosmetic procedure done can increase your self confidence. Next, according to the same article by Clevens, Ross A. it states, “ The objective of cosmetic surgery is increased patient self-esteem and confidence. Most patients undergoing a procedure report these results post-operatively.”
Clearly this shows that the purpose of cosmetic surgery is to grow one's self-assurance, and in most cases it does the job. Given these points cosmetic surgery will boost your confidence, that is, in many cases, the main objective of a procedure. Lastly, in the article Cosmetic Surgery Offers Hope for the Disheartened, by Sally Driscoll, it states, “When performed safely and judiciously, cosmetic surgery can raise self-esteem and provide salvation for those who are locked inside their misery.” This means that getting a cosmetic procedure is one of the things you can do to increase your self esteem, and can help you with facing personal conflict. Therefore, it can be concluded that cosmetic surgery will boost your self esteem. In addition, you are more likely to get a job if you are technically good looking. First, in the article entitled Cosmetic Surgery Offers Hope for the Disheartened, by Sally Driscoll, it states, “ In fact, a 2009 survey found that 73 percent of women believed appearance played an important part in the job market, particularly during tough economic times. Thirteen percent of women had considered cosmetic surgery as a means to further their career, and 3 percent of the women surveyed had already undergone cosmetic surgery with the express purpose of securing their place in the workforce.” Many women are getting cosmetic surgery to increase the chance of getting a job.
So, getting a procedure in hopes of getting hired is a common thing to do. Secondly, according to the article entitled "How a Face-Lift can Aid Success (and Even Help You Escape.." by Knapton, Sarah, it states, “Researchers asked hundreds of people to rate women before and after facelifts. They found that a nip-and-tuck wiped an average of four years off their age, increased attractiveness by 18 per cent and made them appear 16 per cent healthier.” In other words, getting a procedure is proven to make you look and appear younger than you actually are. Therefore, you will look healthier and will be more likely to get the job. Third, according to the same article by Knapton, Sarah., it states, “The new study asked 483 observers to rate 13 female patients before and after face-lift surgery and found widespread benefits in perception by others” This means that average people rating cosmetic surgery patients came to the conclusion they looked better after the procedure. Given these points having a cosmetic procedure can make you look younger and healthier than you did before which will help you be more successful in getting a job. Moreover, if you like the way you look, you will be happier and have a more positive attitude. In the article entitled "How a Face-Lift can Aid Success”, Knapton, Sarah. States, “Attractive individuals are assumed to possess more socially desirable personalities, live happier lives, and experience more success compared with less attractive individuals. Furthermore, individuals perceived as more attractive are more likely to be hired for a job, receive judicial leniency, and be elected as political candidates.”
In other words, if you look happier, which is what cosmetic surgery can help you do, you will act happier as well. Given these points getting a cosmetic procedure can make you look happy and feel happier! As a matter of fact, in the article entitled "Can Botox Actually make You Happy?" by Jones, Annabel it states, “ "Others are also drawn to those who are comfortable with themselves. In short, you become attractive when you fully accept yourself," She is saying that when you accept yourself others will react and accept you as well. Lastly, in the same article "Can Botox Actually make You Happy?" by Jones, Annabel it states, "The motion creates the emotion," explains Dr Prager. "Evidence suggests when you create a physical state of happiness, it affects your mental state. So, if you lose the ability to frown, it makes you feel better." This means that basically if you can’t look unhappy, you can’t be unhappy. In conclusion if you like the way you look you will be happier, it is all up to you.
In review, Cosmetic Surgery can boost your self-esteem, because it increases your self confidence, it can help you get the job, and if you look happier you will act much happier as well. So, it makes sense that there were 1,780,987 cosmetic surgery procedures throughout the country in 2016, and that number is only getting larger. Maybe getting a cosmetic procedure is not a bad idea.
