In case you have not noticed, it seems like every part of the world is on its toes because of the financial state. With more people seeking work, traditionally polishing the resume and shoes is back in order. In fact in the 1930’s, despite the great depression, there was actually a surge in purchases of new suits. A job applicant felt he (because back then the workforce was mostly men) felt it would enhance their prospects of landing a job in a down turned economy.
Now in the year 2009. some 80 years later, the work force is mostly men and women. Now however, a simple upgrade to the wardrobe will not do, some patients are remaking their face.
AM New York reported that more patients (as many as 40%), which is a similar trend nationally and here in Chicago, are seeking injectables such as Perlane, Restylane or Radiesse or a quick surgical procedure to look younger and more competitive in the workplace.
Generally speaking, I would not suggest that someone get a procedure to help get a job. Some of the quick fixes, when appropriately used, can create a wonderful change with minimal downtime, however, and provide an opportunity for a more youthful, refreshed look. As with any procedure, the patient seeking it should have a reasonable expectation and motivation.
