Body Image Has Little Influence on Desire for Plastic Surgery, ASPS Study Reveals
Date:10/18/2007

in cosmetic procedures than those who paid less attention to their looks. This suggests a strong investment in one's appearance may motivate individuals to consider plastic surgery.

While men and women's interest in cosmetic plastic surgery did not generally differ based on their relationship status, an exception was seen in older women. Single and married women aged 56 to 65 were less interested in cosmetic procedures than dating or cohabitating women of the same age.

According to the study that surveyed more than 52,000 people, 48 percent of women were interested in having cosmetic plastic surgery while 23 percent said they were possibly interested. In addition, 23 percent of men said they were interested in cosmetic plastic surgery and 17 percent were possibly interested.

Contrary to popular belief, older people did not have a higher desire for plastic surgery. Instead, a similar percentage reported interest across all age groups for both women and men.

"People interested in most forms of plastic surgery did not differ significantly from the general population in terms of body satisfaction," said David Frederick, Candidate Ph.D., psychology, University of Los Angeles and study co-author. "However, Americans appear to experience greater pressure to be slender than to have ideal noses, breasts and so forth, which could explain why people less satisfied with their weight were more interested in liposuction."

Nearly 11 million cosmetic plastic surgery procedures were performed last year, according to the ASPS. Women, who accounted for 90% of all cosmetic plastic surgery procedures last year, had 9.9 million procedures while men had 1.1 million procedures.
