Don't let normies tell you that your appearance is not the source of your depression, that facial surgery won't help you at all, and it should not be covered. There are many studies online that prove that facial surgery can significantly improve your life. Here are the results of a study published in 2014, one that I am sure many of you are familiar with.




The aim of the present prospective and descriptive study was to assess the impact of facial aesthetic and reconstructive surgeries on quality of life. Ninety-one patients, of whom 43 had aesthetic surgery and 48 had reconstructive surgery, were analysed. The data were collected using the patient information form, body cathexis scale, and short form (SF)-36 quality of life scale. There were significant differences between before and after the surgery in both groups in terms of body cathexis scale and quality of life (p < 0.05 for both). It was observed that problems regarding the body image perception were encountered more, and the quality of life was poorer in both aesthetic and reconstructive surgery patients before the surgery. However, the problems were decreased, and the quality of life was enhanced after the surgery. Among the parameters of SF-36 quality of life scale, particularly the mean scores of social functioning, physical role functioning, emotional role functioning, mental health, and vitality/fatigue were found low before the surgery, whereas the mean scores were significantly improved after the surgery. The results revealed that facial aesthetic and reconstructive surgical interventions favourably affected the body image perception and self-esteem and that positive reflections in emotional, social, and mental aspects were effective in enhancing self-confidence and quality of life of the individual.


Beauty and its social reflections have remained on the agenda of the populations from past to present and succeeded to stay on the top [1]. Physical appearance is quite effective on the lives of many people. For this reason, any change in body image perception may cause social losses, such as job, status, and role losses, along with the loss in beauty and attractiveness. Body image perception is a picture of the body and all body-related senses in mind. When an individual has any deformity in his/her appearance or any dysfunction, he/she experiences an inner conflict between the perceived body image at that moment and the image envisioned. Thought processes, performance, and self-concept response of the individual are changed, and self-confidence is lost along with the change in the body image perception. Thus, it is important to improve body image perception and deformity and dysfunction of the body in shaping the body image perception and self-esteem. The surgical treatment enhances self-confidence of the individual and influences the quality of life.

The face has a symbolic importance in public and personal relationships and is a window of an individual to the world. In this regard, any dysfunction or deformity in the face unfavourably influences the appearance and psychology of the individual and leads to aesthetic concern. Facial interventions in plastic, aesthetic, and reconstructive surgery are the procedures in which aesthetic concern is high, particularly due to their impact on appearance.

The aim of our study was to investigate whether facial aesthetic and reconstructive surgeries, which are important at first sight, affect the quality of life and to determine whether there are differences between patients who underwent aesthetic or reconstructive surgery in terms of gender, socioeconomic status, and education.


The study population comprised 108 cases admitted to the Plastic, Reconstructive, and Aesthetic Surgery Clinic of the Marmara University Hospital between March 2008 and August 2008 for facial aesthetic and reconstructive surgical interventions. After 6 months of follow-up period, 84 % (n = 91) of the patients who were able to be reached constituted the study sample; of the patients, 43 had undergone aesthetic surgery and 48 had undergone reconstructive surgery.
After obtaining the ethics committee and the hospital approvals, the patients were informed about the objective of the study. The study was initiated after obtaining the written informed consents of the patients.
The study was conducted using the patient information form to assess the demographic characteristics of the cases as well as the reasons of need for aesthetic and reconstructive surgical intervention, the body cathexis scale (BCS) to assess the level of body image satisfaction, and the short form (SF)-36 quality of life scale for general health inquiry. The questionnaires were applied both before the surgery (just after the admission) and 3 months after the surgery.
Data were analysed using the Stata: Data Analysis and Statistical Software version 9.0 (Stata Corporation LP, TX, USA). A p value of <0.05 was considered significant.


Logistic regression model, which was performed for multivariable analysis of the cases that underwent aesthetic surgical intervention as compared with the cases that underwent reconstructive surgical intervention, revealed that the ratio of female patients was five times higher, the ratio of university graduates was 4.5 times higher, and the ratio of those with high economic level was 15.6 times higher in the aesthetic surgery group as compared with those in the reconstructive surgery group.

When the groups were evaluated in terms of the reasons for undergoing aesthetic and reconstructive surgeries, 74 % (n = 32) of the patients undergoing aesthetic surgery and 84 % (n = 40) of the patients undergoing reconstructive surgery responded as ‘being uncomfortable with my physical appearance’. Among the patients responding as ‘other’, three patients responded as ‘my self-confidence is enhanced’, one patient responded as ‘at the insistence of my relatives’ in the aesthetic surgery group and two patients undergoing reconstructive surgery responded as ‘to look more beautiful to my spouse’.

The mean BCS scores before and after the surgery were 153.44 ± 15.36 and 166.81 ± 16.91, respectively, in the aesthetic surgery group, whereas it was 148.48 ± 18.54 and 168.38 ± 13.59, respectively, in the reconstructive surgery group. There was a significant difference between the BCS scores before and after the surgery both in the aesthetic and reconstructive surgery patients (p < 0.001 for both). However, no significant difference was obtained between the aesthetic and reconstructive surgery patients in terms of the mean BCS scores before and after the surgery before intervention (t = −1.38, p = 0.17) and after intervention.

With regard to the distribution and comparison of the mean SF-36 quality of life scale scores among aesthetic and reconstructive surgery patients before and after the intervention, ‘emotional role functioning’ was found to be affected much more negatively in the reconstructive surgery patients as compared with that of the aesthetic surgery patients. While the mean emotional role functioning score of the aesthetic surgery patients was 44.96 ± 43.57 before the surgery, it was 11.81 ± 27.06 in the reconstructive surgery patients; the difference was statistically significant.

My thoughts:

Notice that there were five times as many foids as men in this study. Foids already have a higher quality of life simply do to the fact that they were born on tutorial island.

Well over half of these surgeries were not covered by insurance, that means most of the people studied were rich and would have higher qualities of life than people who were just as ugly as them and poor as well.

Imagine if a similar study was done for poor incels and all the surgeries were covered by healthcare. The change in their quality of life would be even more significant than the significant changes observed in the above study. Most poor incels would cry on the floor as if Jesus himself came and cured their ugliness if their surgeries were covered. The improvements would be so great it would change the way that normies think about male facial surgery if the news did a segment about the study.


[TL;DR]
Obviously, facial surgery makes your life exponentially better if you're ugly. Our problems in life are basically how ugly we are and the fact that we are too poor to afford the surgeries needed to prevent truicide. Any doctor who isn't a cuck knows this.

At this point not giving ugly Men surgeries is condemning them to a lonely death.

Nice find
If only governments allocated resources to maximize the total sum of quality of life of the population instead of larping like a bunch of retards in a fancy building.
