Indian employers have the most bullish employment outlook across the world with 46 per cent of them planning to increase their headcount in the next three months, according to Manpower Employment Outlook Survey.The 46 per cent figure is derived on a seasonally adjusted basis for the three-month period starting July, the most optimistic hiring environment across the world. However, the figure has come down from 51 per cent for the April-June quarter.Commenting on the survey results, Manpower India managing director (MD) Sanjay Pandit said, “Inflation and the growing labour market may be exerting some pressure on organisations throughout India. Even then the hiring sentiments remain positive in almost all the sectors for the third quarter of 2011.”The strongest forecasts are reported in the manufacturing and the finance sector followed by insurance and real estate sector, with net employment outlooks of over 56 per cent and 55 per cent, respectively. Dynamic hiring activity is also expected in the public administration and education sector and in the wholesale and retail trade sector with outlooks of over 52 per cent. Much of the general sense of optimism is attributed to the manufacturing sector, which is expected to generate the maximum number of jobs.Hiring intentions for the next three months are strongest in India, Brazil, Taiwan, Turkey and Singapore. Spain, Greece, Italy and Ireland showed the weakest outlook with negative forecasts. Job prospects improved in 20 of 39 countries and territories where Manpower conducts its survey compared with the previous quarter. Hiring intentions were flat in four other economies, including the United States, and worsened in 15 nations.Read which the are the best companies to work for When compared with the third quarter of last year, the job outlook improved in 24 economies and worsened in nine countries, including China, where employment growth appears to be reaching a plateau, according to Manpower.”Globally, India has the most optimistic outlook, but it is lower than last quarter. Employment outlook is still bullish, employers are still hiring, but they are not as optimistic in their hiring trends as they were in the last quarter,” Manpower India head (sales & marketing) Namr Kishore said.The survey that covered 4,555 employers across India indicated that employers in all seven industry sectors and all four regions of India reported positive hiring plans for the next three months.Read how social media is helping Indian employers in finding the right candidatesSector-wise, job seekers in the wholesale & retail trade has a net employment outlook of 51 per cent followed by the service sector (48 per cent) in the next three months, while the country’s weakest yet positive hiring plans are reported by employers in the public administration & education sector (34 per cent).”The impact of inflationary pressures and the measures taken by the government thereof are quite visible as there is a slowdown in manufacturing, construction and real estate, which require cash flows and investments,” Kishore added.Zone-wise, the eastern region reported the country’s strongest hiring expectations at 49 per cent, followed by the north (48 per cent), west (45 per cent) and south (43 per cent), the report said.Globally, third quarter hiring expectations are positive in 35 of 39 countries and territories where the survey was conducted, with employers in the Asia Pacific region reporting the most positive employment outlook.For more news on India, click here.For more news on Business, click here.For more news on Movies, click here.For more news on Sports, click here.advertisement
DefinitionA forehead lift is a surgical procedure to correct sagging of the forehead skin, eyebrows, and upper eyelids. It may also improve the look of wrinkles in the forehead and between the eyes.Alternative NamesEndobrow lift; Open browlift; Temporal liftDescriptionA forehead lift removes orchanges the muscles and skin that cause signs of aging as drooping eyebrows, “hooding” eyelids, forehead furrows, and frown lines.The surgery may be done alone or with other procedures such as a facelift, eyelid surgery, or nose reshaping. The surgery can be done in a surgeons office, an outpatient surgery center, or a hospital. Its usually done on an outpatient basis, without an overnight stay.You will be awake, but will be given local anesthesia so that you will notfeel pain. You might also get medicine to relieve anxiety. In some cases, general anesthesia will be used. During the procedure, you will feel some stretching of the forehead skin and possibly some discomfort. Some patients ask for general anesthesia so they will sleep through the procedure.Sections of hair will be held away from the surgery area. Hair right in front of the cut line may need to be trimmed, but large areas of hair will not be shaved.The doctor will make a surgical cut at ear level. That cut will continueacross the top of the forehead at the hairlineso thatthe foreheaddoes not looktoo high.If you are bald or balding, the surgeon may use a cut in the middle of the scalp to avoid a visible scar.Some surgeons will use several smallcuts and perform the surgery using an endoscope (a small camera).After removing excess tissue, skin, and muscle, the doctor will close thecut with stitches or staples. Before dressings are applied, your hair and face will be washed so the scalp skin does not get irritated.advertisementWhy the Procedure Is PerformedThis procedure is mostoften done on people in their 40s – 60s to slow the effects of aging. It can also help people with inherited conditions, such as furrowed lines above the nose or a droopy eyebrow.In younger people, a forehead lift can raise low eyebrows that give the face a “sad” look. The procedure can also be done in people whose brows are so low that they block the upper part of their vision.A good candidate for a forehead lift has one or more of the following:Deep furrows between the eyesHorizontal wrinkles on the foreheadNose that doesntwork properlySagging browsTissue that hangs down at the outer part of the eyelidsRisksOccasionally, forehead lifts will make ithard to raise the eyebrows or wrinkle the forehead on one or both sides. If this happens, you might need more surgery to make both sides even. If you have already had plastic surgery to lift your upper eyelids, a forehead lift may not be recommended because it could affect your ability to close your eyelids.In most people, thecut for the forehead lift is under the hairline. If you have a high or receding hairline, you may be able to see a thin scar after surgery. Youll need to style your hair so that it partly covers your forehead.If the forehead skin is pulled too tightly or there isa lot ofswelling, a wide scar may form. In some cases, hair loss may occur along the scar edges. This can be treated by surgically removing the scar tissue or areas of hair loss so a new scar can form. Permanent hair loss after a forehead lift is rare.Medical conditions that could cause problems during or after surgery:Blood clotting problemsSmokingTendency to form excessive scarsUncontrolled high blood pressureAfter the ProcedureThe area is wrapped with a sterile padding and an elastic bandage to prevent bleeding and swelling (edema). You will feel numbness and temporary discomfort in the surgical site, which you can control with medication.Youll keep your head raised for 2 – 3 days after surgery to prevent swelling. Bruising and swelling will occur around the eyes and cheeks, but should begin to disappear in a few days or a week.As nerves regrow, numbness of the forehead and scalp will be replaced with itching or tingling. It may take up to 6 months for these sensations to fully disappear. The bandages will be removed a day or two after surgery. Within 10 -14 days, the stitches or clips will be removed intwo stages.Outlook (Prognosis)You will be able to walk around in 1 – 2 days, but you wont be able to work for at least 7 days after surgery. You can shampoo and shower 2 days after surgery, or as soon as the bandages are removed.advertisementWithin 10 days, you should be able to go back to work or school. You should limit vigorous physical activity (jogging, bending, heavy housework, sex, or any activity that increases your blood pressure) for several weeks. Avoid contact sports for 6 – 8 weeks. Limit exposure to heat or sun for several months.Hair shafts will be a bit thinner around thecut for a few weeks or months, but the hair should start to grow normally again. Hair will not grow in the line of the actual scar. Wearing your hair down on your forehead will hide most scars.Most signs of the surgery should fade completely within 2 – 3 months. Makeup can cover minor swelling and bruising. At first, youll probably feel tired and let down, but that will pass as you begin to look and feel better.Most patients are pleased with the results of a forehead lift. They appear much younger and more rested than they did before. The procedure reduces the look of aging for years. Even if you dont have the surgery repeated in later years, you will probably look better than if you had never had a forehead lift.ReferencesCodere F, Tucker N.
