Abstract

Background

In some studies, psychological factors such as low self-esteem have been reported to be effective in making decision to undergo cosmetic surgery. So, this study was aimed to investigate the relationship between self-esteem and decision to undergo cosmetic surgery.

Methods

In this descriptive-analytical study, the participants were selected by convenience sampling. They included 100 cosmetic surgery applicants who referred to the specialized surgical centers in Kermanshah-Iran during 3 months. The control group also included 100 participants who were selected based on similar demographic features, including age, gender, marital status, occupation, and education from among non-applicants. The Coppersmith Self-Esteem Inventory (CSEI) was used to measure the self-esteem of the participants in both groups. The data were analyzed by using descriptive and inferential statistics.

Results

There was no significant difference between the self-esteem scores in both cosmetic surgery applicants and non-applicants. In addition, the findings showed a significant relationship between self-esteem and marital status of cosmetic surgery applicants (P = 0.02), and there was a significant relationship between self-esteem and occupation in non-applicants (P < 0.001). There was no significant relationship between self-esteem and other demographic features.

Conclusions

It seems that self-esteem has no significant effect on the decision to have cosmetic surgery. Further, there was a relationship between self-esteem and some variables such as marital status in cosmetic surgery applicants and occupation in cosmetic surgery non-applicants. Further studies are suggested to be done on a larger sample size.

S3-Leitlinie „Diagnostik und Therapie des Karpaltunnelsyndroms“

CME: 2 Punkte

Prof. Dr. med. Gregor Antoniadis Das Karpaltunnelsyndrom ist die häufigste Kompressionsneuropathie peripherer Nerven. Obwohl die Anamnese mit dem nächtlichen Einschlafen der Hand (Brachialgia parästhetica nocturna) sehr typisch ist, ist eine klinisch-neurologische Untersuchung und Elektroneurografie in manchen Fällen auch eine Neurosonografie erforderlich. Im Anfangsstadium sind konservative Maßnahmen (Handgelenksschiene, Ergotherapie) empfehlenswert. Bei nicht Ansprechen der konservativen Therapie oder Auftreten von neurologischen Ausfällen ist eine Dekompression des N. medianus am Karpaltunnel indiziert.
