As much as we may not want to admit it, aging happens. Even the best plastic surgeon in Nashville can’t remedy every physical characteristic that distinguishes a 50-year-old from a 20-something. And, for the most part, that isn’t what women in Tennessee want to begin with. Recently, ABC News touched on the topic of career-based cosmetic enhancements, and what professional females are really looking for when they schedule a consultation with a plastic surgeon.

“They’re just saying they want to look refreshed [and] they don’t want to look tired,” New York plastic surgeon Dr. Sharon Glese told the news outlet of her 40- and 50-something clientele. “They don’t want to erase their wrinkles. They just want to soften them.”

While age can indicate experience and expertise, the intensity of fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin can also create the appearance of exhaustion or even a sour demeanor. These physical cues, whether coworkers and higher-ups consciously register them, could influence how women are perceived in the workplace. For the most part, many of the older women who are interested in cosmetic enhancements to further their careers simply want to come across as more energetic and capable.

Even if minor changes in your appearances haven’t influenced your worklife, the self-consciousness you may feel about these attributes could come to affect your overall performance. It’s an undeniable fact, after all, that when you feel good about the way you look, that confidence can spill over into many other aspects of your life.
