MELONS™ L1 – THE L1 METHOD – “Symmetry”

The rationale behind symmetry preference in both humans and animals is’ that symmetric individuals have a higher mate-value. Research overwhelmingly shows that beauty matters. It pervades society, it affects how people choose partners, and it influences how people are seen and how they see others. One of the chief beneficiaries of this focus on physical attractiveness is the cosmetic medicine and cosmetic surgery industry. Once only for the rich and privileged, cosmetic procedures nowadays are mainstream and affordable. For a fraction of the cost and time required even a decade ago, practitioners these days can remove wrinkles and blemishes, straighten teeth and noses, and sculpt bodies into works of art. It is important to bear in mind that there are potential pitfalls, both physical and emotional, associated with this growing cultural phenomenon. While people have the right to maximize their attractiveness, there is the danger that, for some, cosmetic medicine may become an unhealthy obsession or be mistaken as the answer to life’s problems.

According to this paragraph:

  1. The cost of cosmetic procedures has dropped in the last 10 years
  2. The cost of cosmetic procedures has not dropped in the last 10 years
  3. Cosmetic procedures have more demand among low income people
  4. Cosmetic procedures have more demand among high income people
