A recent article was published in the journal JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association) Facial Plastic Surgery, ‘Association of Rhinoplasty with Perceived Attractiveness, Success and Overall Health’ .
In this they report a web based survey of nearly 500 observers who were asked to rate images of patients pre and post rhinoplasty surgery, with regards to their attractiveness, success and overall health. The observers were blinded to whether the images were of the patient before or after rhinoplasty surgery.
The result showed that rhinoplasty surgery made the observers report the patients being more attractive,
successful and healthy.
We know that rhinoplasty boosts self-confidence and image, and that must come from others
finding the person more attractive.
