28 Dec Can Breast Augmentation Beverly Hills Patients Ask, Increase Self Esteem?
Even though thousands of women have gotten breast augmentation Beverly Hills experts say that the safety and ethical aspects of the operation have long been questioned, with many critics suggesting that the motives behind such an operation are based on vanity more than anything else. With celebrities like Pamela Anderson and Carmen Electra gaining worldwide notoriety largely due to their breast implants in previous years, it would be easy to come to the same conclusion, with very few people recognizing the psychological benefits cosmetic breast surgery can offer. An independent study showed that there is a direct link between breast surgery and the improvement of self esteem among women who receive breast augmentation Los Angeles specialists say.
Researchers studied eighty four women between the ages of 21 to 57 who had been already scheduled for surgery, and all undergoing the procedure for cosmetic reasons. Demographic questionnaires and pre-tests asking the eligible candidates in the study to rate their self esteem were mailed out before their breast augmentation, with similar post-tests being sent to the participants two to three months after the procedure. The data suggested that there was a direct correlation between the surgery and an improvement in the self esteem of many women in the study.
Using the widely accepted scientific scale, the findings showed that the average self esteem score of the study participants rose from 20.7 on the 30 point scale before surgery, to 24.9 after the operation, clearly showing that, among many women, breast augmentation is considered a great way to not only combat certain signs of ageing, but to increase their self esteem across the board.
While the results of the study showing genuine psychological improvements following plastic surgery for many of the woman involved in the study, researchers put out the caveat that, while the self esteem of her study participants rose post surgery, breast surgery should not be seen as the cure to an individual’s self esteem woes; encouraging cosmetic surgeons to screen for patients who may have deep rooted psychological issues that prevent them from ever being satisfied of their body image in general.
