A Facelift Can Have Huge Implications in Your Career

Submitted by Bernabe Vazquez on August 25, 2014

8There are many compelling reasons to consider a facelift: perhaps you want to look a few years younger in order to experience the confidence you had in your 20s; maybe you plan to reenter the dating scene; other candidates just want a fresh, new start.  Regardless of the reason, it is important to consider the additional benefits of getting a facelift.  As surprising as it may sound, some individuals opt for a facelift in order to boost their career.

With the insurgence of young, new graduates in the workforce, some men and women want to look younger in order to stay competitive in their job market.  The recent economic downturn has left employers making cuts, and unfortunately many decide to cut some of their highest earners and most experienced employees, making way for younger, fresh faces in the workplace.  Those looking to avoid the implications of these cuts may benefit from a facelift.

There are numerous ways a facelift can have a positive impact on your career. The following are three powerful reasons:

1. Look Younger:  A facelift tightens the skin in the lower part of your face and removes excess fat and skin, leaving you with a tighter and more youthful appearance.  Surprisingly, Forbes states that numerous studies reveal that looking younger (and better, overall) can help prolong your career and guarantee a bigger paycheck.

2.  Boost Your Confidence:  When you look better, you feel better. This can translate into performing better in your job.  When you begin to feel better about how you look, you may even find yourself stretching and volunteering for tasks that are outside of your normal comfort zone, making you indispensable to your supervisor.

 3.  Put You in a Better Position for a Future Career:  If you are considering a career change, looking younger may help give you an advantage.  Significant experience paired with a youthful glow translates into a strong applicant.

Important Things to Consider

If you are considering a facelift to help boost your career, you must be mindful of planning the procedure at a time that will not negatively impact your job.  Generally, recovery from a facelift takes approximately 2-3 weeks.  Sutures are removed about 10 days after surgery and you should expect some swelling and bruising for those first two weeks.  Patients heal at varied rates and every surgery is different, so you should be in close communication with your surgeon as you manage post-op recovery.
