Reconstructive & Cosmetic Surgeries

Research data indicate the rate of suicide among women with breast implants to be 2 to 3 times higher than that in the general population.  Outcomes can be greatly enhanced for reconstructive and cosmetic surgery populations when presurgical psychological screening is completed.   Figuring out whether a patient’s motivation for surgery is primarily external – that is, expecting changes in the response of others – rather than internal, is a prime focus.
