If you’re one of the nearly 2 million students graduating from college this spring, it may be time to start interviewing for your first full-time job. But while a stack of freshly printed resumes and a professional outfit should be at the top of your interview checklist, according to an article by King Malleta on the news site Nextshark some new graduates in China are taking the adage, dress for the job that you want to new heights and undergoing plastic surgery procedures to help them gain an edge in the job market. In fact, cosmetic and surgical procedures are up 200% this year among new grads in China.

So, should you consider plastic surgery to help ace your next interview?  Here are some key factors to consider before hiring or firing your current look.

b2ap3_thumbnail_breast-implant-2_20170602-202841_1.jpgAccording to data from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 290,467 people received breast implants in 2016, a number that has been steadily climbing since the year 2000.  But while most of these patients likely successfully completed their post-surgical aftercare, many patients may not realize that caring for breast implants should continue well beyond the initial recovery period. Post post-op aftercare is an important step in maximizing the longevity of your breast implants and minimizing the effects of rare but dangerous complications.

Your surgeon may have already told you that breast implants are not meant to last a lifetime. Most implants have an expected shelf life of about 8 to10 years, however, there is no need to remove and replace them if they are in good condition after any duration of time. That being said, the older the implant, the greater the risk of deflation or and serious complications including rupturing. That is why it is imperative to follow the care guidelines for your implants and to get regular breast implant exams.

Putting Your Best Face Forward When You Walk Down the Aisle

The average couple is paying nearly $2500 for wedding photos alone. If you’re spending this kind of money on photos of yourself, you want to be sure you’re putting your very best face forward.

b2ap3_thumbnail_insurance.jpgEach year, millions of plastic surgery procedures are performed in America, and most of them are not covered by medical insurance. This means these costly procedures are often done at the expense of the patient, to the tune of over $12 billion dollars a year. But now, a growing number of plastic surgeons are pushing for health insurance providers to cover more plastic surgery procedures, as many procedures do improve the health and well-being of the patient.

"A popular example many surgeons are using is reconstructive surgery for transgender patients or breast cancer survivors," said Dr. Ryan Mitchell, a plastic surgeon based in Henderson, Nevada. "Many women opt to have breast augmentation following a mastectomy, but most insurance plans don’t cover augmentations. That leaves a woman who has just likely endured a grueling medical battle with the added expense of having to purchase what is essentially a prosthetic breast with her own money."

b2ap3_thumbnail_breast-implant-2.jpgWhen Cynthia Hedgecock tripped on a broken piece of San Diego, California sidewalk in July of 2015, she had no idea that her ordeal was just beginning. Hedgecock is the wife of former San Diego Mayor Roger Hedgecock, who served the city from 1983 to 1985. Following Mrs. Hedgecock’s fall, she reportedly suffered continued pain, but it was not until September of 2015 that she discovered both of her breast implants had ruptured in the fall and were leaking silicone into her bloodstream. The lawsuit alleges Hedgecock sought medical attention for "persistent breast pain and deformities," and that was when the discovery of the extent of the fall’s damage was revealed.

Hedgecock’s lawsuit claims that due to the fall she endured "serious personal injuries" and required an extensive period of recovery following the removal of the leaking silicone, ruptured implants and the subsequent implant replacement surgery. According to the lawsuit, Hedgecock states that the incident cost her and her husband over $25,000 in medical expenses. Her husband has joined the lawsuit as a co-plaintiff, alleging the accident and recovery of his wife caused him to suffer "loss of support, service, love, companionship, society, affection, relations and solace from his wife."
