During this economic downturn a new class of cosmetic surgery client is born: the unemployed.

While appointments for larger, invasive procedures such as facelifts are on the decline plastic surgeons report that their bookings for Botox, fillers, and other minimally invasive procedures are on the rise.

According to an online study conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) of 562 members, nearly 32 percent reported that their new patient appointments were up by 30 percent.

And who make up this front of new clients? According to the ASDS surgeons: jobseekers, wanting a leg-up for their next interview.
