Plastic surgery can have a positive impact on a woman’s life, as it gives her confidence about her body. Insecurities about the body aren’t limited to the young, but actually affect more than women than you would think. A recent survey by RealSelf.com of American females reveals that 85 percent of 55 to 64-year-olds admit they are unhappy with “at least one” body part.
The survey also revealed that one in five women actively plan for or are considering plastic surgery in the future to address their body image concerns. Seven percent of women said they had pursued plastic surgery in the past. In addition to the number of older women who reported being unhappy with a body part, 90 percent of women ages 18 to 24 admitted the same thoughts as well.
These numbers represent the rates at which women are becoming more accustomed to using plastic surgery, or less invasive treatments for their concerns. The survey also points to the idea that enhancing one’s body, even in the slightest way, can help improve body image and confidence in women.
