Cosmetic surgery

We are Ilona de Kooter and Ninja Nuhn, third-year Liberal Arts and Sciences students at Tilburg University. Our major is Social Sciences, in which a combination is made of the fields of sociology and psychology. Within our bachelor thesis we would like to apply these two perspectives to a specific field. For this we have chosen to investigate the field of cosmetic procedures.
Within the last couple of decennia there has been a rise in the number of cosmetic procedures performed. This is especially true for botox and fillers and this is why we decided to focus on this specific area within the field of cosmetic procedures. Through a literature study, we want to investigate the cultural and social influences on the use of cosmetic procedures. Furthermore, we are interested in the motivations and experiences of people who have chosen to undergo such a procedure. These motivations and experiences will be investigated through conducting interviews.
The entire research will be performed under the supervision of ad. Prof. dr. Alkeline van Lenning. The interviews will remain completely anonymous as will the use of the information from the interviews within the Bachelor thesis. If there are any further questions, you can contact us via the e-mail addresses stated below.
