No matter the age demographic, customers are flocking to plastic surgeons. Boomers want to appear younger, while millennials want to look new and improved. Whether it’s going under the knife or a minimally invasive procedure – think injections and peels – the plastic surgery surge shows no sign of slowing. Why should it? The facts are that people will continue to age and not like it, and few people are 100 percent pleased with their face and figure.
Although plastic surgery is a top subject on millennial social media, and stars freely share the work they have done, it’s the 40 to 54 year old demographic who has nearly 50 percent of all procedures done. Even though men are beginning to explore plastic surgery options, it’s still an overwhelming female experience, at 92 percent.
The top surgeries requiring anesthesia and significant recovery time include:
Minimally invasive procedures often take just minutes at the doctor’s office and require relatively little downtime. The favorites include:
Kybella looks to become the hot minimally invasive treatment of 2017. This injectable dissolves fat over a period of time, and it’s marketed to people wanting to eliminate a double chin or jowls.
With rare exceptions, insurance companies don’t pay for plastic surgery procedures, so clients spend huge amounts out of their own pockets to look better and younger. Those exceptions include breast implants for cancer patients, a situation no woman wants to find herself in. Perhaps the one plus of going through mastectomy and breast reconstruction surgery is that a woman can choose to make her new breasts larger than the originals.
If you’re thinking of taking the plastic surgery plunge in 2017, do your research. Look for board-certified surgeons and ask friends and colleagues who have had work done for recommendations.
