It appears that some women are investing in cosmetic surgery in order to improve their looks and give them the upper hand in the job market.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) recently released a survey, indicating women were going for cosmetic surgery just to get a competitive edge in the workplace and secure their careers.
Seventy-three percent of working women said they have a feeling that appearance and good looks can help them get hired, get a promotion, or climb up the career ladder, especially in times of the global financial crisis. In addition, 80 per cent of working American women said that they are sure that cosmetic surgery can do wonders for an individual's level of confidence. Nearly 13 per cent of ladies who work said that they would spend as much as it takes for plastic surgery in order to become more confident in the competitive job market and 3 per cent of working women admitted to having already invested in cosmetic surgery to increase their perceived value in the workplace.
If cosmetic surgery could improve your job opportunities, would you go for it?
