Successful women in the workplace want to look as good as they feel
Park Ridge, IL (PRWEB) February 20, 2009
Faced with news of increasing layoffs, straining economic times, President Obama's economic stimulus package, and a belief that hiring is based on looks, millions of American women are looking at cosmetic plastic surgery procedures to give them a competitive edge in the workplace. In a recent telephone survey of 756 women between the ages of 18 and 64 compiled by the ASPS, many working women reveal cosmetic plastic surgery procedures are now one of the most important rungs on the success ladder.
"Successful women in the workplace want to look as good as they feel", says Dr. Sam Speron, Chicago plastic surgery expert and consumer advocate. "Time has given them knowledge and experience in their respective fields. However, father time can also take away their youthful sparkle. When you look good, you feel confident. Women in the workforce want to maintain a competitive edge. Nearly 15 million U.S. working women are considering cosmetic plastic surgery according to the ASPS. No one is more qualified than ASPS and ASAPS Member Surgeons to perform the full range of cosmetic surgical procedures."
Some interesting study results about cosmetic plastic surgery:
- 13% (more than 1 out of 10 of the 115 million working-age women surveyed) say they would consider having a cosmetic medical procedure specifically to make them more confident and more competitive in the job market.
- An astounding 3% (nearly 3.5 million working women) say they have already had a cosmetic surgery procedure to increase their perceived value in the workplace.
- 73% (almost three out of four or 84 million working women) believe, particularly in these challenging economic times, that appearance and youthful looks play a significant part in getting hired, getting a promotion, or getting new clients.
- 80% (four out of five or 92 million working women) think having cosmetic surgical procedures can boost a person's confidence.
Dr Speron says you can still save money in today's economy by having non-invasive procedures, but you should never swap quality care for cost. ASPS and ASAPS Member Surgeons put safety and outcome satisfaction first. Consumers looking to cut costs during the economic downturn cannot afford to cut corners on quality of care
Dr. Speron is the founder and medical director of the Park Ridge Center for Plastic Surgery. He is board certified with the American Board of Plastic Surgery and an active member of both the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS).
