Plastic surgery is a good investment for businessmen
June 21, 2011
While plastic surgery may have once been seen as a medical procedure for just women or people with a higher-than-average income, advances in the field have opened opportunities for various individuals. The people getting plastic surgery aren't doing so simply for cosmetic reasons either - it appears that some people see plastic surgery as a way to improve their odds of getting a job, according to The Street.
Businessmen are using noninvasive procedures such as Botox injections or dermal fillers to help them stay ahead in their field. They favor these treatments because they are quick, inexpensive and can possibly help them edge out competition from younger candidates.
Whether or not professionals will admit it, appearance makes a big difference in competitive markets. Men who have deep wrinkles or creases around their eyes or mouth may be discriminated against, particularly if they are up for a job position for which they will be competing against people in their 20s or 30s.
Fortunately, the price of injectable facial fillers such as Juvederm have decreased in price in the past few years, making these one-stop procedures much more affordable for small business owners and other professionals who are still working their way up the ladder.
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane or Juvederm can last for six months or more.
The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), is recognized as the world’s leading organization devoted entirely to aesthetic plastic surgery and cosmetic medicine of the face and body.
