“Vanity is the essence of self-esteem.” – Dr. Ross H. Musgrave

The late Dr. Ross H. Musgrave was a well-known plastic surgeon. His passion was plastic surgery because he knew it helped improve people’s self-esteem. When people’s self-esteem was high, they were happier and their quality of life was better.

Researchers throughout the world have discovered the correlation with how people feel about themselves and the way they live their life. In one study by the University of California, researchers found that 98% of plastic surgery patients reported their self-esteem increased and so did their self-worth. Psychologists often find that people with high self-esteem and self-worth are much happier with themselves.

People who are happy carry that happiness into all areas of their life. They seem to feel better about their careers, relationships and in social situations. They see the positives in their life rather than the negatives. This can have powerful effects on all areas of their life. It all originates from how they feel about themselves overall.

Sometimes, all it takes is some facial fillers to smooth out some wrinkles. Other times, it takes a bit more with a breast augmentation and liposuction. It doesn’t matter how much plastic surgery people get, it’s about how they feel after they get the procedure.

According to Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, about 97% of women who receive breast reduction surgery are satisfied with the results. Women over 40 who get facelifts tend to be happier after their procedures as well.
