ABSTRACT

Background: It has been noticed in the last few years that women have been spending a larger amount of money on different methods, such as cosmetic surgery, to enhance their physical appearance. The present study aims to assess the influence of the type of elective cosmetic surgery on job satisfaction and self-esteem. Methodology: An online survey was designed, uploaded, and shared through social media. The survey was targeted to assess the job satisfaction relevant to different occupations among the study subjects. Results: The study sample contained 43 participants. All of the 43 subjects were females with a mean age of 31.6 years. Two patients underwent Brazilian butt lifts (4.7%). Nine participants underwent rhinoplasty (20.9%). Breast reduction was done to one person (2.3%). Five participants had breast augmentations done (11.6%). One had a thigh lift (2.3%). Two participants had blepharoplasties (4.7%). Two participants underwent torsoplasties (4.7%). Two participants had abdominoplasties (4.7%). Submental liposuction was done to five patients (11.6). Botox and filler injections were given to 14 participants (32.6%). Participants were also given the job satisfaction scale, developed by McDonald and MacIntyre. Overall, participants believed that their cosmetic procedure did have a positive impact on their work-life and satisfaction with work (p = 0.02). The highest rate of people who agreed with being satisfied in their job was seen in the rhinoplasty sample (66%), whereas none of the participants who underwent Brachioplasty agreed with the statement. Conclusion: The present study found that elective cosmetic surgery leads to an increase in job satisfaction, we found no statistically significant difference between the various cosmetic procedures and their different impacts on job satisfaction. This may be due to the relatively small sample size. Therefore, the different types of cosmetic procedures and their different magnitudes of impact cannot be concluded in this study. More studies may need to be done.
