While we have never had any doubts that cosmetic procedures can improve quality of life (we only have to look at our patients and how happy they are), up until recently there have been very few studies done on the subject.
However, there have been, in recent years, a number of studies that have evaluated the effects of aesthetic procedures on a patient’s quality of life. The studies have, as a whole, reaffirmed the life-enhancing benefits of tampa cosmetic surgery.
But how do we define “quality of life”?
To establish whether or not someone’s quality of life has improved, you have to look at the patient’s social, physical, psychological, and emotional wellbeing. Things like self-esteem and confidence all are factors that contribute to the “quality of life” assessment.
Here are the results from a couple of different studies:
- A study of 105 patients who were undergoing elective cosmetic surgery tampa found significant improvements in their quality of life within six months of surgery. They experienced positive changes in their social life, leisure activities, and friendships. They also noticed improvements in depression.
- Another study found that social anxiety was improved after facial cosmetic surgery.
- Other studies have found that patients experience an overall improvement in health and well-being. Patients also report freedom from anxiety as well as a greater sense of independence.
As I mentioned in the beginning, we only have to look at the happy faces of our patients to know that cosmetic surgery can have an improvement on the quality of life. It’s truly an honor to be a part of their journey.
If you are considering a cosmetic procedure, we encourage you to do your research on the top physicians in your area for that procedure. If you want facial cosmetic surgery or injectables, we are happy to meet with you to discuss your unique situation and the results you are looking to achieve.
