Those employed in the entertainment industry have long relied on plastic surgery to bolster their popularity and remain current in a culture consumed with beauty. We associate voluptuous curves with women who radiate sex appeal so they sell us lingerie, while on-screen actors and actresses often receive rhinoplasty or facelift surgery to make their close-up shots more desirable.
Now more than ever, every day plastic surgery patients who have experienced the benefits of an improved feature or face understand that cosmetic corrections can also enhance their work life. Further, those who seek to excel in life are most impacted by the positive increase in self-esteem rather than an attempt to conform their looks to gain the approval of others.
Combatting Age Stereotypes
Patients have increasingly undergone facial plastic surgery procedures over recent years, despite a struggling economy. People realize that in a competitive job market, a person must not only present a potential employer with the pertinent experience to perform the necessary work, but also radiate confidence and a “can-do” attitude. In some industries such as business, sales, and technology, an aging individual may not be seen as an asset, but rather a hindrance to these rapidly changing markets. Often times, patients who report these concerns seek anti-aging procedures such as facelift or neck lift surgery. A lesser-requested but equally transforming procedure, otoplasty, can reshape the ears which often sag over time, drawing the face downward.
The Professional Benefits of Looking Great
As representatives of a business, people wear nice clothes to interviews and eventually a job, they get their hair cut and wear makeup, and facial plastic surgery forges one’s image one step further. Refining the nose through rhinoplasty or creating a stronger jawline through chin augmentation can improve a person’s looks. According to Psychology Today, attractive people are more successful in the professional world. Some researchers suggest that sex sells, and those attracted to people will receive them well if it encourages their opportunity to mate with that person. Rather than scoffing at a society that prioritizes beauty, we must realize that these psychological responses often have a biological undertone. Others may interpret one’s appearance as a representation of how he or she cares for his- or herself, and draw the inference that if a person makes the effort to look nice for work that they also make an effort in their actual position.
