Plastic surgery is the second-most-popular cosmetic surgery in the United States after breast implants.
But is it worth it?
In a series of studies published in the American Journal of Plastic Surgery, the authors of the study looked at the impact of cosmetic surgery on people’s mental health and wellbeing.
The study found that some people have significant negative impacts on their physical health after cosmetic surgery.
For example, people who had cosmetic surgery for facial reconstruction in the 1990s experienced higher rates of osteoarthritis than people who did not have the surgery.
The researchers also found that people who were not satisfied with their cosmetic surgery had lower levels of self-esteem, anxiety, depression, and fatigue than those who had had cosmetic surgeries.
The study’s authors suggest that it’s important to have a good mental health care system to help people who have cosmetic surgery cope with their experience.
