I recently came across an article on Huffington Post that really got me thinking. In the article, the author (Kristen Haughton, a regular contributor and humor writer) discusses why she will be getting a facelift. As I read her words, it occurred to me that she may be the ideal candidate for this procedure. She is mature, self-assured, intelligent but not obsessive, and has a realistic perspective on what cosmetic facial surgery can offer. After a brief interlude about our American culture and its youth obsession, she makes some excellent points about motivation for surgery. She writes that she is seeking to look refreshed and less tired, and that there are real benefits to even subtle improvements in these areas in terms of how you present yourself and how others see you. This can be important in the workplace as well as your personal life. If you have a few minutes free, it’s worth a read!
