Previously on this blog, we've talked a lot about the growing trend of Mommy Makeovers, and how mothers across the country are finally treating themselves to a long overdue bit of pampering. Now, it seems that teachers – who devote their lives to educating our children – are also seizing the opportunity to invest in their appearance.
This week, the CBS affiliate in New York reported that teachers have been taking advantage of the summer vacation to spring for cosmetic procedures like nose jobs, Botox injections, breast lifts and more.
"The older teachers… usually it's facial rejuvenation," said New York plastic surgeon Dr. James Marotta. "They may have a brow lift or upper-lower eye lid surgery. They may have a face lift."
Younger professionals, meanwhile, tend to veer toward nose jobs and other procedures that can enhance their appearance.
Getting a bit of work done over the summer is ideal for teachers, Dr. Marotta notes, because they have time to recover and, depending on the type and quality of the procedure, can start the year without any students or colleagues even catching on.
So what is driving this push? For one thing, plastic surgery has undoubtedly become more mainstream in recent years, so more men and women of all professions are starting to see it as a viable option to improve their appearance. In addition, CBS notes that teachers may be subjected to somewhat insensitive remarks from students, or could even feel a bit threatened by younger professionals.
If you've been considering a cosmetic procedure, there is still time to consult a Miami plastic surgeon before the summer comes to an end. Dr. Christopher Craft is a board-certified plastic surgeon who will put your privacy, safety and satisfaction above all else.
