Giving Your Career A Facelift


Is plastic surgery your key to success?

Looking to boost your career? Don't waste time pursing that MBA or putting in extra hours at the office. Just do what millions of other Americans do: Get a facelift.

A recent story in U.S. News and World Report suggests that "beautiful people make more money and have more opportunities for advancement." In fact, the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery reports that two thirds of patients got surgery to remain competitive at work.

But could this really be true? Beauty is, after all, in the eye of the beholder. And America's wealthiest -- Microsoft's (MSFT) Bill Gates and Berkshire Hathaway's (BRK) Warren Buffett -- can't really be described as pretty boys.

Plastic surgery can typically cost anywhere from $15,000 to $30,000, depending on the procedure. Any way you slice it, that's a big investment. Especially when there's no way to predict the payoff.

Join Hoofy and Boo as they put this shocking theory to test. Will Hoofy's facelift pay off, or leave him forever scarred?
