Introduction: The tendency to cosmetic surgery and its practice can be influenced by various physical, psychological, social and cultural factors. The aim of this study was to determine the correlation between sexual satisfaction and perceived social support with a tendency to cosmetic surgery.
Methods: The method of the present study is descriptive-correlation. The statistical population included all patients seeking cosmetic surgery in one month in 2020 in selected 3 clinics in Tehran, which was estimated at a total of 900 people. 322 of them were selected as a sample by non-random sampling Quota method. The demographic questionnaire, "Sexual Satisfaction Questionnaire", the "Perceived Social Support Scale" and the "Acceptance of Cosmetic Surgery Scale" were used to collect data. The construct validity of the instruments was confirmed by confirmatory factor analysis and the reliability was confirmed by internal consistency by calculating Cronbach's alpha coefficient. The collected data were analyzed in SPSS. 19.
Results: Tendency to cosmetic surgery has a negative and significant correlation with sexual satisfaction (r = -0.208) and perceived community support (r = -0.338) (P <0.05). Also, perceived social support (β = -0.29) and sexual satisfaction (β = -0.19) predict a total of 15% of the variance of the tendency to cosmetic surgery (P <0.05).
Conclusions: Tendency to cosmetic surgery has a negative and significant correlation with sexual satisfaction and perceived community support. Therefore, social support and sexual satisfaction predict the tendency to surgery. It is suggested that psychologists and counselors consider the role of social support and sexual satisfaction in reducing the unnecessary tendency of individuals to cosmetic surgery.
