A boob job can improve a woman's self-esteem and sexuality, finds study .
Cynthia Figueroa-Haas, a clinical assistant professor at UF’s College of Nursing conducted a study and insists that it is important for health-care practitioners to understand the psychological benefits of procedures such as boob jobs.
Figueroa-Haas found that improvements in the women’s self-esteem and sexual satisfaction were directly correlated with having undergone breast augmentation.
She used two widely accepted scientific scales to measure self-esteem and sexuality, the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale and the Female Sexual Function Index, which assesses domains of sexual function, such as sexual arousal, satisfaction, experience and attitudes.
The participants’ average self-esteem score increased from 20.7 to 24.9 on the 30-point Rosenberg scale, and their average female sexual function score increased from 27.2 to 31.4 on the 36-point index.
However, Figueroa-Haas warned that women should not view plastic surgery as a cure-all for any self-esteem and sexuality woes.In fact, she urges ethical plastic surgeons should screen for this type of behavior and rule out potential patients who may have more serious psychological issues.
