Cosmetic surgery is primarily an option chosen to improve a persons appearance. According to a recent online article , research suggest that cosmetic surgery any also change the way other people think of you and and how they approach you. Surprisingly research shows that while a bit of stigma remains, the approach by others to women who have had plastic surgery was overwhelmingly positive. The article suggest that when women have the “right” procedures they appear more feminine, friendly and for the most part more likable. There are numerous studies that refer to the psychological effects for the plastic surgery patient. This study is believed to be the first that looks at how others perceive patients who have had cosmetic surgery procedure. The cosmetic surgery study suggest a direct link between specific cosmetic procedures and the way a woman is perceived with respect to her social skill, perceived trustworthiness and friendliness.
Plastic Surgery Facial Procedures Have the Most Impact
Plastic surgery facial procedures seem to cause the most definitive positive reaction. Specifically, the facial plastic surgery procedures that had the most significant effects on the perceptions of other people were face lifts, upper and lower eye lifts, brow lifts, neck lifts and chin implants. Following any of these facial plastic surgery procedures or any combination of two more, social perceptions were found to be altered among the individuals the women encountered. According to the research team behind the study, the interesting finding is based in human evolutionary instinct with our subconscious minds causing us to move closer toward those who appear to us as friendlier and less threatening – facial appearance and our interpretation of it being a key determining factor.
When determining why facial plastic surgery procedures affect perceptions in such a way, the team hypothesized that it could be as simple as having sagging, down-turned facial features lifted produces a look that is believed to be happier and more upbeat.
“This may explain why the patients who had a lower eyelift were found to be significantly more attractive and feminine, and experienced improved trustworthiness scores,” wrote Professor Reilly. The study authors noted that some patients were perceived as prone to risky behavior and aggressive after surgery.
“Some might say that is negative, but others may want that look,” added the Professor.
Patient Consultation Is the Key to Understanding Procedures
Patient consultation is the first step to having plastic surgery. Dr Angelchik treats the patient consultation as the important medical office visit that it is. The patient consultation is the opportunity for the plastic surgeon to review important medical information concerning the patient, gather both facts and expected outcomes from the patient, and make a recommendation. Dr Angelchik sees his patients at both the the initial visit as well as the pre-operative visit. Both patient consultations are critical to patient satisfaction and positive outcomes. Recently Dr Angelchik added an additional benefit for his patients. As a practice dedicated to total wellness, Dr Anglchik provides every patient with nutritional products for use prior to surgery and immediately after surgery to improve patient healing and general well being.
