AbstractAlthough the notion that an individual’s morality can be changed from bad to good solely with a procedure that improves physical appearance is controversial, the relationship between appearance and behavior is complex and pertinent to an individual’s psychology and quality of life. Where plastic surgery comes into play, as either treatment or adjuvant therapy, remains to be determined.
