Study Shows Bullying is the most important reason for Cosmetic Surgery
A study that took place in UK recently came to light explored the motives that make people opt for cosmetic surgery. The study which was carried from a money-saving company (Vouchercloud) showed that the most prominent motive was the fact of bullying. It seems its very hard for someone to just accept the fact of bullying without trying to escape and it seems cosmetic surgery is a common option in order to relieve pain from bullying. 58% of Britons chose to have cosmetic surgery because of bullying. The second reason was their desire to look more attractive (51%) while a 42% was driven by the desire to resemble the impressive results of another that had similar cosmetic procedures. Finally a 26% opted for cosmetic surgery driven from a celebrity and his/her sexy/attractive look.
This is a very important finding, because it reveals that most of the patients that opted for Cosmetic surgery are not choosing responsibly, maturely. There is just a crave for boosting self esteam, a crave to feel attractive, a mimeticism of the popular beauty stereotypes. So people need to ask themselves and find whether such motives are able to make someone feel truly fine, or this will create new desires, new goals etc.
Its a very important matter, if you ask us and people should be quite responsible, conscious of their choices!
