Plastic surgery is a journey that starts with a desire or concern that becomes a process from the consultation to the last bit of recovery after surgery. While the media & internet is filled with plastic surgery ‘problem’ and apparent unfulfilled expectation, what occurs in the typical plastic surgery patient? Like most stories that are newsworthy, a normal happy patient is not very interesting or of much interest. Thus the public’s perception of plastic surgery can become a little skewed. In a new European study just released, researchers have found most plastic surgery patients report a boost in self confidence and more fulfilled life after their surgery.
