Abstract: After bibliographic study we applied 17 semi structured interviews from which two sub categories arise: a) Physical motivations and b) Psychological motivations. Starting in the sense units we formulated a group of affirmations that referred to each one of the summoned categories and sub categories that in their group composed the first version of the questionnaire. This first version was presented to a group of 7 judges. The scale was then applied to a sample of 30 patients in two separate moments separated by three weeks (testretest) in order to perceive the constancy of the results and the stability of the construct which was meant to measure. The scale was then applied to a sample of 122 patients of the aesthetical surgery appointments with the goal of scale validation which results (four factors that explain 63.3% of total variance) and internal consistence ( ¼ 0.938) guarantee its adequacy.
