We came across an interesting article from the Australian news about how cosmetic surgery is being used to boost careers of those who are in a competitive work environment. The article is based on the findings of Professor Anthony Elliott from Flinders University who has been researching this topic for five years and says that “acute job insecurity is driving the (cosmetic surgery) trend”.
The article goes on to say that people in their early to mid 30s are usually at the high point in their career and that by the time an employee hits 50, they are feeling “old” and unable to compete with the youth and vitality of their younger co-workers. Part of the upswing in using cosmetic surgery to save their position is that some employers are putting more of an emphasis on age and appearance to boost sales and performance.
