How Business Professionals Have Been Using Cosmetic Surgery to Increase Self-Confidence

Posted on August 30, 2013 | by

The American workplace is becoming increasingly youth-driven, and more minimally invasive cosmetic procedures have been gaining popularity as a result.

Even with a fantastic résumé and long list of experience, an employer may favor the confidence and ambition of that 20-something fresh out of business school. Is this really just because they are younger? It isn’t totally black and white. Pardon the cliché, but age is but a number. A lot of it has to do with the difference in how we carry ourselves.


One of the biggest impacting factors on our self-confidence has to do with how comfortable we are with our looks. As our coworkers and even the CEOs around us continue to get younger and younger, it is easier to become more self-conscious about our own age and appearance. How we carry ourselves has a lot to do with the way others view us and this can make or break an interview. Those with low self-esteem often avoid eye contact and shrink back in their chairs as opposed to engaging their interviewer and sitting up strong.

Our faces are what people focus on during conversation, so it is easy to pick up on any insecurities or a lack of confidence. Minimally invasive cosmetic procedures are becoming increasingly popular as a way to regain a youthful and develop a new level of confidence in the workplace.

Injectables like Botox and dermal fillers such as Juvéderm have gained extreme popularity as many men and women continue to turn to these non-surgical cosmetic treatments to improve the appearance of lines or wrinkles. Others are turning to bigger procedures like nose surgery (rhinoplasty) or a face-lift for more serious results.
