Imagine a world where the most talented and educated people are literally fighting for the best jobs. However, in the end, these top candidates fail because they are not tall enough. Unfortunately, this is a reality for some Chinese people.
Some companies expect candidates to possess more than just brains. They want attractiveness too! It is one reason why Chinese employees are going under the knife to achieve a more attractive look.
1 Eye Surgery
Eye surgery is the most popular operation in China. Women try to make their face more Western and look like the hottest celebs. Most doctors consider the double eyelid operation (also called blepharoplasty) to be an easy one. University students and teens dream of having double lids for a way to have the 'perfect look' and receive better career opportunities.
2 Nose Job
Improving the shape of the nose is a more complicated procedure. After undergoing rhinoplasty (nose surgery), Chinese ladies can impress their colleagues with a longer and higher nose. The sacrifice: before revealing their new nose in public, women normally have to spend 2-4 weeks in recovery under doctor supervision.
3 Facial Sculpting
V-line facial contouring surgery reshapes the jaw bone. This procedure allows the face to be shaped into the letter V, thus achieving a skinnier look.
After doctors remove part of the jaw bone, the patients must wear a special facial mask. After surgery, patients must keep to a special liquid diet until they recover. Face swelling can take 3-7 months to wear off.
This weight loss operation is wildly popular in China. On average, Asian people do not gain weight quickly. Yet, Chinese women still strive to look slimmer. The operation comes complete with many side effects. In the worst scenario, complications including infection and organ perforation.
5 Breast Enhancement Surgery
Breast Augmentation Surgery is popular worldwide and China is no exception. It is most trendy with bloggers and media personalities. Another interesting fact: women from the southern part of the country tend to seek for the operation more than ladies from the northern part.
