(OOC via Marketwatch.com)
According to this article, folks who get their lipos-suctioned and their tummy's tucked "report significant improvements in self-esteem and quality of life." How bout that?!
So a few things. One, we here @OOC are neither for nor against plastic surgery - we're totally for happiness and against feeling bad about yourself. Our attitude, do what makes you feel good (and don;t do what makes you feel bad). Two, it kind of makes sense that patients who chose elective surgery would, on balance, feel good about their choice (though we're not sure these same #s hold when it comes to breast augmentation). Three, this survey was done by a group with an interest in the outcome, which seems worth noting. All this aside...
Have you ever had elective surgery? Would you? If you have, did it make you feel better about you? (We hope so.) Plastic surgery, let's #discuss.
