Cosmetic procedures for a competitive edge in the workplace

As the unemployment numbers heat up, so does the competition for available jobs. To get an edge, increasing numbers of job seekers are looking to cosmetic procedures to give them confidence and a competitive edge in the workplace. Indeed, a recent survey released by The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) supports this.

According to Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michel Siegel, "When you are in your forties and fifties and competing for a limited supply of jobs with people in their thirties, who look younger and fresher and who may be just as qualified in the eyes of the employer, you have got to level the playing field. Cosmetic procedures do exactly that for a lot of my patients."

Dr. Siegel offers two options to those seeking the best value for their cosmetic investment.

The Executive Lift™ Face Lift is ideal for those needing a more youthful, fresher look. It is a 45-minute in-office procedure using only local anesthesia and having a short recovery time. Patients can be back in the public eye, on average, in 48 to 72 hours. Because the Executive Lift is not a full face lift, it results in a "younger you" rather than a "different you" -- and without the "pulled back" look sometimes associated with a full face lift. It definitely boosts confidence that is essential to display in an interview.

This type of mini face lift in the hands of Dr. Siegel typically costs $6000 to $9000 less than the conventional face lift, which includes hospital and anesthesia fees.

Another option for the job seeker is Dr. Siegel's less expensive Liquid & Light Face Lift™. This is a quick, non-invasive set of procedures that includes the judicious use of the most effective dermal fillers, BOTOX® Cosmetic and/or an IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) photo facial. Using these alone or in combination, Dr. Siegel typically custom designs a treatment program for each patient's needs and budget to remove wrinkles and creases, clarify skin and create a healthy, youthful glow. Results can be the same as a conventional face lift without the surgery and last up to one year.
