Discovery Health Psychology: Is the Best Way on Plastic Surgery???

  1. 1. Discovery Health Psychology: Is the Best Way on Plastic Surgery? Ingga Yonico Martatino1,2 , Tri Ari Wibowo3 1 Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok - Thailand 3 Medical Doctor, Roemani Hospital - Indonesia iyonicomartatino@gmail.com Abstract According to the American Psychological Association (APA), attractive people are perceived as more intelligent, healthy, sociable and dominant than the average person. Cosmetic surgery seekers looking to improve appearance could get the added bonus of positive body image, confidence and increased self- esteem. Many people surgically alter their physical appearance with the intent of boosting their social and psychological well-being; however, the long-term effectiveness of aesthetic surgery on improving well- being is unconfirmed. The present comparison-controlled study examines outcomes in a sample of 10 patients who underwent aesthetic surgery (surgery group) and 10 participants who were interested in aesthetic surgery but did not undergo it (comparison group). Overall, the results reveal positive outcomes of receiving aesthetic surgery across areas, including anxiety, social phobia, depression, body dysmorphia, goal attainment, quality of life, life satisfaction, attractiveness, mental and physical health, well-being, self-efficacy and self-esteem. Among those dissatisfied with a particular physical feature and considering aesthetic surgery, undergoing surgery appears to result in positive self-reported psychological changes.
