What does lobotomy do to a person? How does it change them?

I was watching shutter island (for the 4th time) and I always wondered what the doctor meant by saying 'you will get lobotomized' because I searched it and it says it changes a person for the better. So then why is it so bad that andrew {leonardo dicaprio} gets lobotomized?!?!

Lobotomy involves cutting the connections to and from the prefrontal cortex, the anterior part of the frontal lobes of the brain. The effects of lobotomy include anxiety feelings and introspective activities; and feelings of inadequacy and self-consciousness are thereby lessened. You can get more information at the en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lobotomy website.

I think it takes away most of your personality and memories but I'm not sure.

Ask Joe Kennedy, Sr. about his daughter, Rosemary. That'll sum it up pretty well.
