Newport Beach, Calif. – Acclaimed Southern California Plastic Surgeon Dr. Tenley Lawton, based in Orange County (the cosmetic and plastic surgery capital of the U.S.) notes a dramatic increase in nip/tuck, career-boosting procedures that are requested by aging Gen X professionals who are competing for jobs.
“Companies are hiring again after a long recession. Prepping for interviews used to be getting your hair cut and a new suit, but these days I see more patients than ever before seeking procedures,” says Dr. Lawton.
Looking Younger to Look Relevant When Competing with Gen Y & Z workforces.
As Gen X’ers begin to age in the workforce, and Generation Y and Z begin to grow in roles, many men and women are turning to plastic surgeons to help eliminate the signs of work stress on their physical appearance. “Age discrimination is a reality. Statistics and focus groups show that young, attractive people make a bigger impression on interviewers than ever before,” says Dr. Lawton.
Image Surgery is Up, As Job Market Grows. Better image equals a better hire.
Both women and men are seeking alternative options to make their physical appearance as impressive as their resume. As the job market has grown, so has the business of Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Tenley Lawton.
Job Enhancements: Pre-job-interview Career Beautification Procedures
“I get requests from Brotox for men to liposuction, tummy tucks and injectables for women patients I see,” says Dr. Tenley Lawton. “They are savvy professionals rapidly seeking ways to turn back the clock before job hunting." She applauds patients’ proactive ways and their pro-active efforts not to accept hindrances that might make them less likely to land the job. “Patients shouldn’t want, or expect, to look ridiculously younger, but simply refreshed, and to compete on a more equal playing ground.”
As we head into September, school season is once again upon us. For many, this brings a time of rejuvenation as our kids are headed back to school. However, for many, this brings an increase stress level with homework, sports, after school activities and everything else that comes with this season. Because of this, it’s very easy to begin to slack in the fitness level that we worked so hard to build before summer and maintain throughout.

"Bathing suit season is when my self-esteem is the lowest. This year, I've decided to change that and had liposuction on my tummy, flanks and back. It has already changed my life. And, now, can't wait to wear my new bikini!" - Jennifer A.
One of my specialties is body contouring - it helps me appreciate the art form of the human body. Enhancing the curves and optimal shape of a person's individual body is perhaps one of the best artistic representations of cosmetic surgery. Patients instantly feel beautiful - their clothes fit better; they can wear the trends the always loved; they stand straight, tall and proud and exude a new self-confidence.
Liposuction leaves little to no scarring and is relatively inexpensive. A simple pin-prick incision and a few weeks of soreness, is well-worth the radiance that patients project following the procedure.

On February 20th, the FDA approved a new anatomically correct breast implant from Allergan, Inc. that is designed to mimic the natural slope of the breast.
"The Natrelle® 410 shaped gel implant will be a welcome new option for my patients seeking breast augmentation or reconstruction," says Dr. Lawton. "Women seeking breast augmentation now have an alternative to the round implants currently available."
Dr. Lawton, the first plastic surgeon in Orange County to use the new implant, specializes in all areas of cosmetic surgery including breast augmentation, liposuction, tummy tucks, facelifts and "mommy makeovers.
"This new implant offers a highly-cohesive silicone gel that will enable it to hold its shape over time while remaining soft to the touch," she said. "It is the most selected shaped gel implant in markets where it is already available, such as Europe and Canada."

"I just received a tummy tuck and breast augmentation from Dr. Lawton. I have never had surgery before. I was terrified. Dr. Lawton made me feel so comfortable.

And, I'm THRILLED by my results." - Natalie

"Dr. Lawton has become my therapist. She has helped me overcome my insecurities while staying "natural" looking. The other doctors I saw made me feel like they wanted to augment me to be this cookie cutter image of perfect. Dr. Lawton, wanted to naturally enhance the things that make me, well, me. I'm so happy with my rhinoplasty and liposuction." - Kate K.

As the season in Southern California changes from summer to fall, it brings with it the always present Santa Ana winds and a dry heat. All of the wind and dryness can play havoc on your skin, particularly if your skin tends to be sensitive. With that in mind, there are a few tips that you can use to ensure that your skin stays healthy and keeps that great glow!
1. Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize – All of the dry wind sucks the moisture right out of your skin during these months and the moisturizer regiment you are used to during the summer may not be enough to keep up. With that in mind, find a moisturizer that suits your needs and ensures that your skin stays healthy and moist. Dry skin can cause your pores to increase their oil production which can then lead to a misdiagnosis of oily skin. Keep an eye on the products you are using and be sure they are helping in the correct way, which actually leads to the next point…
2. Evaluate Your Skin – skin is an organ and as such, can change with the season. What may be oily skin during the summer can change to dry during the fall and vice versa. Along with that, just as our taste buds change as we age, so too does our skin change. It’s important to evaluate your skin so that the decisions you make with product and skin care is the best for your current situation.
3. Wear Sunscreen – When the weather cools down, we tend to forget that the sun is still shining just as bright. We’ve all seen people coming back from a day of skiing and snowboarding and their faces are bright pink, except for the raccoon eyes from goggles or glasses, of course! It’s important to always wear some sort of SPF protection whether it’s regular sunscreen or something built into your skincare products. Just because it’s not hot, does not mean you won’t get sunburned.
Keep these tips in mind as we head into the fall season to ensure your skin stays healthy and young!
