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.

“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.”
