The issue of happiness as it relates to cosmetic surgery is multifaceted. Cosmetic surgery can sometimes play a role in adding to someone’s happiness. However, it is not possible to create or initiate happiness in an individual through cosmetic surgery when they are not happy with life in general. These issues should be dealt with before surgery.
The patients must ask themselves if they are happy in general. If they feel that they are not happy and are hoping that the cosmetic surgery will make them happy, they are going to be disappointed. In this situation the patient should consult a psychiatrist or a psychologist prior to undergoing any cosmetic procedure.
