Cosmetic Procedures Used to Boost Careers

More than 5% of the UK’s working population have already turned to cosmetic surgery in a bid to boost their career prospects.

And according to a new survey 1 in 10 people would resort to surgery to get ahead in the workplace. These statistics are part of new research seeking to discover the true extent of the use of cosmetic surgery and procedures by professional people looking to enhance their career, carried out by MyFaceMyBody, the chat show dedicated to cosmetic surgery.

The survey found that

  • Nearly two thirds of women believe appearance and youthful looks play a part in getting hired, gaining promotion or getting new clients.

  • More than one in ten said that they would consider having a cosmetic procedure to make them more competitive in the job market.

  • Nearly three quarters of consumers would consider having a non surgical treatment such as teeth whitening.

When consumers were asked what they would prefer to improve the most about themselves to boost their career prospects, nearly a third would improve their facial features and one quarter said that they would improve their teeth.
