How Do Injectable Medical Fillers Affect Our Self-Confidence?

Beauty products, cosmetic procedures, and plastic surgery seemingly serve one purpose: to change your appearance.

Of course, it is a fact that physical changes make us feel good psychologically. World-renowned Brazilian Plastic Surgeon Ivo Pitanguy said, "The intervention you do is to rebuild or improve the patient's self-esteem."

Filler treatments, which are perhaps the most demanded among non-surgical treatments today, contribute to the aesthetic goals of many individuals from the 20s to the 70s.

We got their opinions about self-confidence and filler treatments from our doctors:
 

Physician Gokce Haspolat MD:

filler“The belief that “having plastic surgery is loving yourself” prevails everywhere these days. This has been the subject of numerous scientific articles claiming to increase life enjoyment, satisfaction, and self-confidence.

In fact, these articles are supported by research that links people's mental health to their physical appearance. And fillers are doing great things in this sense.
Gokce Haspolat MDFor example, it gives an opportunity to transform someone with low self-confidence and a troubled nose into someone who is self-confident.

The research I've mentioned highlights that nasal fillings for eligible patients can prevent destructive behavior, including eating disorders, bullying, and self-harm.”
 

Dermatologist Zahide Eris MD:

Researchers surveyed 75 patients before and after applying fillers. After the filler treatment, 75 percent of the patients stated that they were satisfied with their image and their self-confidence was restored.

There are many ways to interpret this data. Patient outcomes are highly dependent on expectations.

Fillers who believe they can radically change their face with a doctor's appointment, for example, may inevitably be disappointed, while those who expect more modest improvements will likely do better in the long run.”

Physician Sule Sakrak MD:

filler“Waiting for our inner self to change and our self-confidence to increase with aesthetic treatments has become one of the modern time concepts.

While change through fashion and makeup has been around for a long time, women and men today are increasingly emphasizing their desire to improve it.

Shiny hair, smoother skin, fitter bodies, fuller lips are included in every New Year's resolution. If you have thin lips, lip fillers can make a tremendous transformation and boost self-confidence immensely.”
