Abstract
Background: Humans have always sought self-fulfillment by improving their appearance. Cosmetic operations increased in number to fill this need. The study aimed to assess the reasons for the motivation of patients seeking minimal invasive cosmetic procedures.
Methods and material: A cross-sectional study was conducted from June to May in Saudi Arabia. The questionnaire was adapted from another study. The data was cleaned, coded, and entered using SPSS. Proportions were calculated and bivariate. Data were tested by the suitable test of significance.
Results: Out of 1026 participants, 87% were females and 13% were males. 56.8% of participants were 18-24 years old. Almost half of the participants had a major change in professional or personal life in the last year, but this was not significant with having the motivation to seek minimally invasive cosmetic procedures (P= 0.767). Out of the responders,41.7% and 21.9% think that cosmetic treatment will moderately or significantly affect their appearance. The most received cosmetic treatments were dermal filler replacement and Botox, 30.2% and 20.6% respectively. The mostly aged facial features were eyes related or around the eyes in 64.1% and neck related in 13.7%. History of prior facial cosmetic procedures was found in 11.4%. The most expected complications of Botox were bruises in 65.3%. The most expected complication of dermal filler was swelling at 69.9%.
Conclusion: Our study found that middle-aged women were the most to undergo a cosmetic procedure. Most of the responders that were treated had learned about the treatments online. Social media was most frequently used by our patients.
