A group of researchers from the University of Wisconsin conducted a survey of 100 people who passed through plastic surgery. Scholars interested in, what motivates the average person to change their appearance. As it turned out, not so simple. Many people who decided to have plastic surgery, appear to have serious problems from childhood. This tells newspaper the Daily Mail.
Most of the interviewed volunteers had higher education and a decent wage. Along with this, many people who decided to have plastic surgery, were dissatisfied with their appearance. And this dissatisfaction in most cases, was from childhood.
Childhood trauma, the researchers said, significantly increases the probability of a person of dismorphophobia (chronic dissatisfaction with his body). An inexplicable feeling of shame for their appearance motivates people to carry out plastic surgery.
