A report published Monday in “Journal of Korean Beauty Society” revealed that nine out of 10 women who had plastic surgery had changes in their personalities.
Two professors, one from Sookmyung Women’s University and one from Sungshin Women’s University, collaborated in the study.
According to the survey, more than 90 percent of 402 women in their 20s who had plastic surgery between September and October 2014 had a personality change.
About 95 percent were working in service industries, the highest rate compared to other job fields.
The study further revealed that the women’s satisfaction level on their “before” appearances was 2.9 out of five on average.
The figure jumped to 3.53 after the surgery, reflecting increased confidence.
