Boost Your Confidence via Modern Cosmetic Surgery
During our school years, most of us were taught that “looks are not important . . . but it is the inside that counts.” While that might make some folks feel all warm and fuzzy inside, such an idealized notion is not only unrealistic, but complete balderdash. In the “real world,” appearance does not only matter, the way you look can make the difference between a prestigious career and active social life, and dead end jobs and abject loneliness. For this reason, more Americans have been having breast implants, and opting for other surgical and non surgical cosmetic procedures.
There is a reason why we get haircuts, shave, wear makeup, and dress in our best clothes for job interviews. Job interviewees are evaluated as much, if not more, based on physical appearance as they are by their resumes. Whether interviewers realize it or not, they do judge applicants by their physical appearance; and the judging does not stop there.
For both men and women, height, weight, and physical features each play crucial roles when it comes to career and social success. In fact, studies show that the average height of a business executive is around six feet, despite the national average being only 5 foot 9 inches. It is also interesting that, since World War II, the only U.S. President whose stature was shorter than 5 feet 11 inches was Jimmy Carter, who stood 5 feet 9.5 inches during his presidency.
When it comes to physical appearance, American society seems to place more pressure on women. While society “allows” men to carry a little extra weight, women are held to a higher standard of physical appearance. According to the American ideal, women are expected to be thin and have larger breasts. While discrimination of any kind is unethical, aesthetic discrimination is simply a fact of life.
The good news is cosmetic and plastic surgery procedures like liposuction and breast augmentation enlargement are safe and effective options for boosting your confidence. In fact, a recent survey found that having breast implants boosted the confidence and sex lives of more than a third of breast implant patients. When you combine the aesthetic benefits with its safety, nearly one million American women have undergone breast augmentation since 2010.
Prior to 1990, there was quite a bit of controversy surrounding breast implants, which were mostly attributed to safety concerns related to third and fourth generation silicone implants. While contemporary silicone implants are approved by the FDA, saline breast implants may be even safer, since they are filled with harmless saline solution. Thus, women who desire larger breasts are becoming more comfortable with the idea of having breast implants.
In the not too distant past, cosmetic surgery of any kind was considered controversial. With the highly successful and safe cosmetic procedures of today all of that is changing. As a result, many Americans are feeling more confident about both their professional and and social lives.
