Factors on Cosmetic Surgery among University Students


Background/Objectives: The purpose of this study was to explore factors related to cosmetic surgery that can threaten physical, psychological and social health of university students. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Data were collected by questionnaires of self-esteem, appearance concern, body-esteem, and relationship from university students in Korea on September 25-October 30, 2015. Answer sheets of 225 respondents were gathered, and 222 of them were analyzed except for 3 incomplete one. The collected data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, t-test, ANOVA, χ2 –test, Pearson’s correlation coefficients, and logistic regression analysis. Findings: Results show that age, gender, residential type, and cosmetic surgery experience of family and relatives were significant factors. Predicators were over 21 (age), female (gender) and those who have a family member or a relative who have experienced cosmetic surgery. They are relational variables rather than psychological variables. Improvements/Applications: Further studies are needed to specify social and psychological mechanism related to cosmetic surgery of university students as well as relational variables.
