We all worry about frown lines, sagging skin and other signs of aging, but for people who work in the public eye, these elements could actually affect their professional success. In the past, we’ve talked about how celebrities may opt for a nip and tuck to help them garner leading roles. Recently, the New York Post ran a feature on how local politicians could also benefit from some cosmetic enhancements.

This week, a plastic surgeon based in the Big Apple weighed in on how specific plastic surgery procedures could make the city’s Mayoral candidates more appealing to the electorate. After all, though voters will of course consider each runner’s political views, it’s undeniable that outward appearance often affects how people evaluate others, whether or not they realize it.

Plastic surgeon Dr. Scheiner mentioned, for example, that the appearance of under-eye bags and frown lines could lead people to view candidates as aged, sickly or stern, rather than vibrant, powerful and energetic.

Scheiner argued that, however illogical, it is “simply wired into us” to associate physical appearance and trustworthiness.

Botox, laser surgery and liposuction would help the candidates look stronger, happier and more likeable,” the source reported.

Even a simple, non-invasive procedure like Botox or a dermal filler can smooth out lines and add a more youthful volume that can dramatically transform how an individual is perceived.
