Recent statistics show that more millennials (adults in their 20s and early 30s) are seeking cosmetic enhancement. San Diego plastic surgeon Dr. Carlos Chacon has seen an influx of millennial patients come into his practice to discuss their cosmetic concerns and goals. Here, he reveals some of the most popular cosmetic procedures requested by millennials.
Breast augmentation continues to be one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures across all generations. Newer breast augmentation options like gummy bear implants and fat transfer are especially appealing to millennial women who are very mindful of natural-looking results. Thanks to advanced techniques and implant choices, breast augmentation allows women to not only boost breast size, but improve their overall figure as well.
The millennial generation is a very health-conscious group as a whole. But when diet and exercise efforts fall short, many millennials turn to liposuction. The gold standard in fat removal, liposuction removes small pockets of fat that are resistant to weight loss efforts. Liposuction can be used on various body areas, including the arms, abdomen, back, hips, thighs, buttocks and even the face and neck.
Selfies allow millennials to view themselves like never before. The camera lens has the ability to magnify even the smallest imperfections and put them at the forefront of our thoughts and our social media accounts. Botox is a great solution for millennials who are just starting to see wrinkles and lines appear on their skin. A non-surgical treatment, Botox can be completed in about 30 minutes or less and involves very few side effects. Results are almost immediate and last three to four months.
As with Botox, many millennials are turning to dermal fillers as a quick and non-invasive solution to premature wrinkles and lines. Dermal fillers add volume to the skin, making them a great choice for filling in wrinkles and creases, as well as under-eye hollows and thin lips. The results of dermal fillers vary depending on the specific product used.
