Expert Clinical Psychologist Simge Alevsaçanlar Cücü made evaluations about the psychology of those who performed aesthetics during the pandemic period.
We looked in the mirror more in the pandemic
Describing aesthetics as “an attempt that actually serves the purpose of eliminating the troubles in the inner world, increasing self-esteem and appreciating himself with a change in the body of a person”, Expert Clinical Psychologist Simge Alevsaçanlar Cücü said, “We know and hear that aesthetic interventions have increased too much in the pandemic. In fact, instead of talking about an addiction, perhaps we should talk about a problematic use of aesthetics. Because people stayed away from outside sources during the pandemic process and started to be more in the home. Therefore, we have become less doing many of the things we do to spend time outdoors. This led us to turn inside ourselves, to take care of ourselves more. We became more looking in the mirror and this created a more depressive mood as we were withdrawn. ” said.
They imitate the lives of celebrities
“We feel burnout as this process takes too long. Therefore, all this causes the person to feel more depressed and less satisfied with himself. ” said Simge Alevsaçanlar Cücü, who said:
“During the pandemic process, aesthetics has actually become a kind of coping with negative emotions. ‘Why has aesthetics increased so much in the pandemic?’ Looking at the question, people may actually be taking this as an opportunity. After all, when our socialization is much less and we go out much less, it becomes a suitable time for aesthetic intervention. Because they cannot change external conditions, they may be trying to change themselves and actually feel better. In addition, the use of social media has increased a lot in the pandemic, we are constantly witnessing social media phenomena and the lives of famous people. Being constantly exposed to the tabloid dimension of social media causes people to constantly compare themselves with others. In this process, the person who already feels depressed, unhappy and exhausted puts himself in a comparison because he is exposed to such images too much. “
Those with “body perception disorder” have more aesthetics.
Specialist Clinical Psychologist Simge Alevsaçanlar Cücü pointed out that people with “body perception disorders” especially resort to aesthetic operations much more in this process, and said, “We observe that the number of interventions they have performed in individuals who tend to see bigger because of their small or imaginary defects in their own body has increased much more. Being beautiful is everyone’s desire and right. There is no problem in having aesthetic operations done, but it is important with what motivation we have it done and why. “If the person has these operations to get rid of a mood, we need to sit here and think.”
