We’re not having a good year and I know I’ll soon have to interview… The surgery made sense for me. I look at least 10 to 15 years younger and I have more confidence.”
Surgeon Payman Simoni is quoted in the report as stating of the change in his patients motives for getting plastic surgery, “Before the economy turned down, people would come in because they wanted to have more fun and enjoyment out of life… But now plastic surgery has become a necessity for some. People cannot only rely on their skills in this market. They want to look refreshed and youthful so they can compete for jobs.”
