Facelifts Give Job-Seekers An Edge

Facelifts Give Job-Seekers An Edge

With the recent story about the Wall Street banker who underwent 12 plastic surgery procedures to boost her career, many white-collar workers are wondering if the same approach can help them work their way to the top. The image-conscious set attest that it’s not about having the thinnest waist or the largest breasts—rather, it’s about looking young enough for people to believe that you’re on top of your game. On top of a major ego boost, getting nipped and tucked for the sake of your job may be the next best thing since equal opportunity.

"In the corporate world, there's a lot of emphasis on image, and image goes with self-confidence," Dr. Antonio Armani, a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon told U.S. News. "I think a lot of people do invest money in improving their looks because they feel this is one way they can go up the corporate ladder." Non-surgical injectables like Botox and Restylane are extremely popular options, thanks to their low commitment requirement. People who work 9-5, 7 days a week, can experience anti-aging benefits without taking any time off. But even the most advanced non-surgical injections can treat a sagging neck or drooping eyelids, which is why a large number of working people still opt for plastic surgery.

Jennifer, a food and beverage industry worker from Vancouver, said that her age was starting to get in the way of her workplace success. At 50 years old, her drooping eyelids were causing people to avoid eye contact. "For me to talk to a 30-year-old, he's looking at this old bag and thinking, 'What do you know about trends among younger people?’ Jennifer told Canada.com. “The hospitality industry is notoriously young as far as the workplace goes and as far as the customer goes.” Jennifer ended up getting a blepharoplasty to remove excess tissue from her upper eyelid. The $3,000 procedure has left Jennifer feeling nothing short of a million bucks. "It's done wonders for my self-confidence," she says. "People will look me in the eye again.”

What kind of jobs are pulling people out of work and into their plastic surgeon’s office? Competitive ones, you might say. Salespeople that require a lot of person-to-person facetime are popular contenders for plastic surgery, as are real estate agents, and employees in new sectors like social media and digital cinema.

Top Procedures for The Career-Minded

Blepharoplasty is a mainstay for the working crowd that’s looking to stay on the game. The procedure can remedy a range of aesthetic eye problems, including droopy or puffy eyes. Facelifts and neck lifts are also popular, as well hair transplant surgery for men. And unlike the story about the Wall Street banker, most of the people getting plastic surgery aren’t going from ugly ducking to corporate bombshell. But they are looking less uptight, tired, worried… and above all, less old.

But the patients aren’t unrealistic. "Most of my patients don't want to look like they did when they were 20 or go back to when they graduated from college," said Pittsburgh plastic surgeon Dr. Leo McCafferty. "They just want to look as good as they feel." Dr. McCafferty added that people in the public eye, like judges and attorneys, are frequent visitors to his office. Aside from the traditional procedures and injectables, hair transplant surgery and dental veneers can also wind back the clock.

Finding a Plastic Surgeon

The doctors are quick to point out that plastic surgery is not a replacement for essential career skills and requirements.
