Study Suggests That a Need for Physical Perfection May Reveal Emotional Flaws
if it takes a scientific study to get plastic surgeons to psychologically screen their patients, or even just be more aware of their patients' emotional well-being, great. i just find it funny that this study is presented as something revelatory and new.
i've been living it for most of my life.
we're not all rushing to the doctor for a pug nose or a pair of immovable boobs, but in varying degrees, haven't most of us spent oodles of time and money trying to fulfill our "need for physical perfection?"
time and money that would have been better spent on therapy.
