Men and women who have performed facelift, experience changes in their levels of self-esteem after surgery if they had low or high self-esteem before the facelift was performed
This is the conclusion of the researchers behind a study published in the journal JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery in February this year, writes Norwegian Health Informatics.
Participants in the study were 59 patients who were operated on by the same surgery in the period July to October 2013. The average age was 58 years, and all were divided into subgroups based on confidence level.
The study finds that the level of self-esteem increased for those who initially had low self-esteem. For those who had average confidence their level of self-esteem remained unchanged, while the level of self-confidence decreased for those who initially had a high level of self-confidence before surgery.
