What Is Beauty? A Plastic Surgeon’s Perspective

Beauty is a word used to describe many things: people, places, objects, acts, qualities, and more. While it commonly refers to physical attributes, it also refers to emotional connections people have with other people, things, or circumstances.

That emotional sense of beauty is an unseen, inner sense—something you feel, not see. Food, cars, clothing, employees, and even technology devices are automatically and immediately assigned a value based on appearance. This bias translates into an assessment of the quality of the item.

But let’s face it: it’s all superficial—most of us know deep down that the association of quality with beauty is not always true. In fact, at times, it may even be flat-out wrong; appearances may mislead you into believing that something has greater value than it does.
