WHAT LIES BENEATH THE DESIRE TO HAVE AESTHETICS?

The demand for aesthetic operations is growing all over the world. While the growing age at which this demand begins is a concern, the number of people who have undergone dozens of operations to look like a celebrity or even a cartoon character is not small. The most important group affected by the subject is children. Children who are directly affected by the perception of ‘beauty’ in the environment in which they grow up can commit suicide or become depressed, thinking that they are ‘ugly’ when they are subjected to negative messages. Aesthetic operations should be evaluated within the framework of these problems. Turkey Medicals member Turkish Doctor says that, “the doctor should ask the following question before accepting his patient: is there psychological problem under this person’s desire to have an aesthetic?”

People who want to have aesthetics may have negative schemes about body perception, said an Associate Professor of Psychiatry at Okan University Hospital and touched on an important issue: I wonder what lies beneath this request?

THOSE WHO SPEND MOST OF THEIR TIME IN FRONT OF THE MIRROR

Body Dysmorphic Disorder or narcissistic personality disorder may be the aesthetic cause of the Assoc. Dr. said: “a person who tries to lose weight and becomes anorexia sufferer, even though they lose a lot of weight, experiences one of the consequences of this distorted body scheme. Another example of this is a psychiatric disorder called Body Dysmorphic Disorder. In this disease, a person finds a defect that does not exist in his body, or he builds his life entirely on it, making a defect that will not attract any attention or attract very little a matter of life and death.

For example, he says that his nose is crooked, large, or saggy, so he spends most of his time in front of the mirror, unable to go out because he is worried about people’s looks, and ultimately unable to fulfill his academic or work-related social duties. This can also be followed by severe depression.”

AREN’T’ SMUG ‘ ACTUALLY SMUG?

Narcissistic Personality Disorder types can also resort to plastic surgery more often for psychological reasons, the Assoc said. Dr. continued: “generally, positive expressions about their appearance in childhood, people who are overrated but not liked in a sufficiently empathetic way, have difficulty loving themselves and therefore others when they grow up and turn into narcissistic individuals. People who are described as complacent in public find themselves worthless and try to fill this gap. He also does this by creating a fan base for himself. Another way to close this gap is to always be beautiful and always stay that way. These people fight for life.

PLASTIC SURGEONS AND PSYCHIATRISTS SHOULD COOPERATE

Especially in those who have Aesthetic Surgery at an early age, or even in operations performed only with aesthetic concerns, the indications should be well defined. For example, it should be evaluated how the psychology of the person applying for a nose operation that will open the airways and the person who will perform aesthetic operations in Antalya Turkey for the anatomical changes they want in the nose will be affected by this later. because in the second, as in other areas of life, there is an emphasis on the priority of the view and the given message may be: an operation of an effort the good things in life can be achieved easily, so you spend the effort to develop spiritually, etc. no need, just find the money! So you can easily find a job or a wife!

As a result, aesthetic operations can sometimes be caused by pathological body schemes, may not work, and may lead to constant doctor pursuit. It can also be inconvenient, sometimes causing some personality disorders to persist, although they are not pathological. Even in the most innocent cases, it can cause a person to neglect them, rather than encourage them to look for ways to improve themselves. In this case, it may be possible for plastic surgeons to cooperate with psychiatrists to determine the indications for such operations and follow-up of patients after the operation to avoid some of the drawbacks.
