NY Facial Plastic Surgery Could Give You the Edge You Need
Beauty pays. That’s the message and title of a recently-published book by economist Daniel Hamermesh.
Published by Princeton University Press, Beauty Pays is the culmination of 20 years of study by the University of Texas-Austin economics professor. Hamermesh has devoted his career to studying the economic impact of beauty on society and, specifically, on the workplace. In a nutshell, his research shows that, just like the rest of us have always suspected, people who are physically beautiful do enjoy an easier life.
Compared to their plain Jane and average Joe co-workers, Hamermesh’s study found that, on the job front, beautiful people typically earn more money than their less-attractive peers – a lifetime average of $230,000 more! Beautiful people are also more likely to be hired, are hired for better jobs, are promoted more quickly, and move farther up the corporate ladder than other people.
On the social front, beautiful people were found to be happier, were better liked, had more friends, and were more self-confident than their plainer peers. The study also showed that attractive people have an easier time getting a bank loan and are generally able to obtain their loan at a lower interest rate than their beauty-challenged peers. Beautiful people were also more likely than people of average attractiveness to marry other beautiful people who were well-educated and had greater earning potential.
That’s great for the beautiful people, but what about the rest of us? In Hamermesh’s study, participants almost universally identified beauty as a symmetrical face. If your facial features are not symmetrical, a skilled Manhattan facial plastic surgeon can improve your facial symmetry and help you reach your appearance goals so you can enjoy the same edge that beautiful people are born with.
