Connecting Cosmetic Surgery & Mental Health with Dr. Mitchell Chasin

Back to Media

Divorce, the death of a loved one, milestone birthdays, cancer treatment and other major life changes can sometimes result in a drastically altered self-image – which can then undermine even the most positive person’s confidence and hopeful outlook.

If that’s the case, wonders host Patricia M Barbarito, Esq., could simply improving one’s physical appearance with a visit to the local plastic surgery center result in a genuinely happier individual? Or is that person really just avoiding their inner turmoil?

For featured guest and renowned plastic surgeon Dr. Mitchell Chasin, the answer is neither simple or one-size-fits-all.

Listen as the duo explores the relationship of beauty and confidence, discusses the intricacies of the mind-body-sprit connection through the lens of body augmentation, outlines the role that cosmetic medicine (including plastic surgery) can play in revitalizing one’s sense of hope, and debunks the myth that cosmetic procedures will remove all self-esteem issues or lack of confidence.
