Women all over the world routinely invest in their personal and professional success, paying substantial amounts for degrees, impressive wardrobes and beyond.
But in China, some women are going to extreme lengths to ensure success — they’re investing in cosmetic surgery.
China is trying to catch up with the Western world in the fastest possible way, and at the same time copying those lifestyles that are associated with the “West”. Chinese men and women are thus trying to look more “western” or eurasian.
They let themselves remove eye wrinkles, increase the size and raise the bridge of their nose, enlarge their breasts, and even go to such extremes as to lengthen their legs to look taller. The opinion of being more successful in professional life by having a Eurasian appearance is the most frequently mentioned reason for these extreme measures. It seems – that even in China, one must suffer to be beautiful.
