双语:肉毒杆菌开始在华尔街大行其道

对失业、声誉下降和收入缩水的恐惧,正在促使华尔街的男士们更加关注自身形象和年龄。一位整形外科医生透露说,有许多男性来他的诊所注射肉毒杆菌,注射位置多为眉毛周围、掌心和腋窝。还有一些人希望通过整容手术获得不多不少的“华尔街皱纹”。

Every profession has a dress code, whether spoken or unspoken. For men on Wall Street, it’s a pretty stringent one. That suit had better be navy blue, that tie had better be in a Windsor knot and if you want to express yourself with your clothes, your exit interview is down the hall to your right.
每一种职业都有明确或不言而喻的着装要求。对于华尔街男士来说,这种要求尤为严格。西装最好为海军蓝,领带最好为温莎结,如果你想用着装来彰显自己的个性,距离你的离职谈话恐怕就不远了。

But now, you can add to that a touch of Botox.
但现在,肉毒杆菌开始在华尔街大行其道。

The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery said that in 2013 alone, 385,000 men had undergonethis procedure. Last week, the organization said the 2014 numbers also show the number of men having cosmetic surgery continues to rise, though it didn’t yet release the latest Botox numbers. Todd Schlifstein, owner of Fountain Medical Group in New York City, told Men’s Journal that the men coming in for Botox are “middle-aged, health-conscious, white-collar guys” who want to look not just younger, but fresher.
美国美容整形外科学会表示,仅在2013年,就有38.5万名男性注射了肉毒杆菌。该学会上周发布的2014年数据也显示,接受整容手术的男士人数在继续上升,但尚未公布男士注射肉毒杆菌的最新数据。纽约喷泉医疗集团的所有人托德•斯克里夫斯滕告诉《男士杂志》,注射肉毒杆菌的男士多为“关注自身健康的中年白领”,他们不仅希望看起来更年轻,也希望自己的外貌更有活力。

“Since the 2008 meltdown in the economy and the subsequent repurposing of careers and functions, it has been messy on the Street,” New York-based executive coach Roy Cohen said in an interview. “In the process, fear of job loss, diminished prestige and shrinking income have led men to pay closer attention to image and age.”
纽约高管教练罗伊•科恩在接受采访时表示:“自从2008年的经济危机导致许多人开始重新审视职业前景以来,华尔街一直处于混乱之中。在这个过程中,害怕失业、声誉下降和收入减少,促使华尔街的男士们更加关注自身的形象和年龄。”

For men who want to reboot their image but can’t change their wardrobes, getting a little “work” done can yield the desired benefits. Dr. Norman Rowe, a New York City plastic surgeon, told ABC TV that he’s already seeing men come through his office for Botox, specifically asking for a procedure that will provide what he calls “that Wall Street Wrinkle.”
对于那些希望改变形象但却无法改变着装风格的男士们来说,一些小的“工作”便可以取得期待的效果。纽约市一名整形外科医生诺曼•罗博士对ABC电视台(ABC TV)表示,有许多男性来他的诊所注射肉毒杆菌,并特别提出整容手术的要求,以获得他所称的“华尔街皱纹”。

According to Dr. Rowe, this means that these men don’t want their wrinkles eradicated entirely. They just want enough wrinkles removed to give a fresh look to their faces, yet have enough left over to give the impression of a professional who’s been around the block a few times. After all, they don’t want to give the impression that they’re just kids. And besides, theyearned those wrinkles.“They’re battle scars,” he said. “They’re badges of honor, so to speak.”
罗博士表示,这意味着这些男士并非要求消除所有的皱纹。一方面,他们希望消除足够多的皱纹,让自己的面部容颜焕然一新,同时又要保留足够的皱纹,给人留下经验丰富的资深从业者的印象。毕竟,他们不希望让其他人认为自己还是职场新丁。此外,这些皱纹是他们拼搏的见证。他说道:“它们就像战场上留下的伤疤,是值得骄傲的荣誉勋章。”

He added that they’re not just getting Botox treatments for the brows that they furrowed on behalf of their clients. They’re also getting them in the palms of their hands, to eradicate that troublesome sweaty handshake, and in their armpits, to prevent them from sweating through their Turnbull & Asser shirts.
他补充道,为了不给客户留下眉头紧锁的形象,男士们经常要求在眉毛周围注射肉毒杆菌。但不止于此,他们还会在掌心注射肉毒杆菌,以彻底摆脱在握手时令人烦恼的手汗,另外一个位置是腋窝,这是为了避免汗水湿透他们的Turnbull & Asser衬衫。

In a release last week, The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery said that cosmetic procedures have been gaining traction among men for some time now. ASPS President Scot Glasberg, MD said that the idea that these procedures are the sole province of women is one that should be left in a less enlightened past.“Male plastic surgery rates have significantly increased since 2000 and the notion that cosmetic procedures are just for women no longer exists,” he said. “Men are seeking to regain a more youthful look, improve their self-image and feel better about their appearance.”
在上周发布的报告中,美国美容整形外科学会表示,男士整容手术正变得日益流行。学会主席斯科特•格拉斯伯格博士表示,以前人们认为整容手术是女士的专利,但这已经成为历史。他说道:“自2000年以来,男士整容手术的比例大幅增加,整容手术只适合女性的观念已经不复存在。男士希望重新获得更年轻的容颜,改善自我形象,对自身的外表更有信心。”

Some men of Wall Street are also choosing other, less painful methods to address that not-so-fresh feeling. Diana Melencio, co-founder of the OkMyOutfit shopping service, spent eight years as a Wall Street analyst. She said her company organizes events for the clientele that used to be her male counterparts. In her experience, they’re not just trying to look younger; they’re trying to feel younger by being pampered, just like their female counterparts.
此外,有些华尔街的男士们也在选择其他无痛的方法,来缓解“青春不再”的苦恼。购物服务提供商OkMyOutfit的联合创始人戴安娜•梅伦肖曾做过八年华尔街分析师。她说自己现在的公司会为客户组织各种活动。这些客户多是她在华尔街的男同行。根据她的经验,他们不仅想看起来更年轻,也希望像女同事们那样获得悉心照料,从而让自己感觉更年轻。

“We have thrown several events for our male clientele, and a ‘beauty’ service that has proven popular with this trend is at-home barbers,” she said. “We’ve hosted events where hot shaves have proven to be quite popular. Among this crowd, other procedures that come to mind include manicures and so-called ‘male’ facials.”
她说道:“我们为男性客户组织了许多活动,事实证明较受欢迎的一项‘美容’服务是上门理发。我们举办的活动中,剃须也非常受欢迎。男性客户会选择的其他服务包括美甲和所谓‘男士’美容。”

Today’s Wall Street man has good reasons to leave the Gordon Gekko look behind, in favor of something more youthful and vibrant. Thanks to modern cosmetic products and hypodermic needles full of botulinum toxin, he has ways of getting there that will allow him to keep coming to work in his Brooks Brothers suits.
如今,华尔街的男士有足够的理由抛弃戈登•盖柯式的外表,选择更年轻、更有活力的形象。拜现代化妆产品和装满肉毒杆菌的皮下注射器所赐,他们现在拥有许多改变形象的方式,以期能够继续身穿Brooks Brothers西装纵横职场。(财富中文网)
