Beauty, Money and Happiness - Are They Related?

Posted by Jennifer Deal on Apr 4, 2011 9:18:00 AM

According to a study conducted by researchers at the University of Texas - Austin, the answer is YES. Beauty has economic effects, which also effects happiness. Even psychologists weigh in on the study in a USA Today article. Todd Kashdan, an associate professor of psychology at George Mason University in Fairfax, Va says,  "Think about it as a gateway to getting what you want from life -- job interviews, first dates, making those initial impressions, persuading and influencing other people," he says. "Attractiveness gives that slight edge. They're getting the benefit of the doubt at first sight, and unattractive people aren't."

Does that mean you should head to our office for cosmetic Surgery? Dr. Nease and Dr. Deal agree that it should only be used to enhance your own natural beauty. "Cosmetic surgery  is not meant to transform you into a completely different looking person," said Dr. Deal. "At Southern Surgical Arts, we specialize in natural enhancements with minimal downtime and minimal scarring using the latest technology available to either turn back the hands of time or restore your figure."
