Rising Divorce Rate Fuels Increasing Number of “Revenge Cosmetic Surgery”

Recently, the number of women who seek cosmetic surgery after a divorce increased drastically. A recent study made by the National Women’s Health Resource Center showed that about 40 percent of women going through divorce sought cosmetic surgery to improve their looks and show their exes what they are going to miss after the divorce. The same study revealed that majority of these people reported a boost of confidence after going under the knife to enhance their physical appearances.

Most Sought After Cosmetic

A lot of recently divorced women seek breast augmentation, tummy tuck, liposuction, eyelid surgery and facelift. A good number of these women opt for a combination of different procedures to sculpt their body. Women who had children often fell self-conscious about the way their breasts droop and their tummies sag so they opt to have breast augmentation, liposuction and tummy tuck. Older women who want to look a few years younger than their biological ages often go for facelifts and eyelid surgery.

Does Cosmetic Surgery Really Trigger Positive Emotions?

Majority of those women who had cosmetic surgery reported feeling good about themselves after the procedure. To a large extent, looking good can help women coup with the changes, pains and stress that come during and after a divorce. However, revenge cosmetic surgery is not a substitute for counseling and therapy. In fact, we recommend that women who are going through painful divorces should seek counseling first before having cosmetic surgery to enhance their looks.
