It’s without a doubt, prettier ladies have major advantages.  It has been proven by many psycho-economical studies that beauty can impact positively on getting better jobs and on getting paid higher salaries.  The bias towards physically attractive people places them at a higher social status and contributes to their happiness. It is believed that we, subconsciously, think “what is beautiful, is good” and this has its influence on our decisions when it comes to making selections.

There is a strong belief that “looking more beautiful” is regarded as “not negotiable” and there are higher standards of beauty today than that of the past. Researchers have defined our attitude to beauty as the combined interaction between two main areas; “looking” beautiful and “feeling” beautiful. Looking beautiful comes from our inherited genes as well as enhanced beautification from the use of different hair styles & colours, cosmetics, contouring, dressing with the correct colours for the skin type and body shape. And, more recently, from the touches of cosmetic injections to moderate facial wrinkles and to fill lost fat to give the younger appearance.

The ultimate aim is to achieve “emotional beauty” which defines our charisma and confidence together with style and look. So, ‘feeling’ beautiful should be the goal. “Wellness beauty” is defined as sleeping enough hours, eating healthy food and exercise regularly. 

Being a cosmetic doctor and a trainer, I always recommend spending time to educate ourselves about the principle of beauty and the aim to achieve well balanced facial proportions. It is important to know the skills to inject but it is more crucial to know the art of facial proportions. This illustrates the difference between an artist and an amateur practitioner. As a cosmetic physician, I believe it is important that my patients understand the reasons for their facial treatment and see the point of beautification.  Feeling good after a procedure is a must as it is the aim to satisfy the holistic emotional beauty.
