Millennials and Plastic Surgery: The Rise of Cosmetic Procedures in the Y Generation

Written by Dr. Sean Maguire on September 8, 2017

Millennials and plastic surgery

Millennials, adults in their 20s and early 30s, represent an increasing proportion of plastic surgery patients. Louisville plastic surgeon Dr. Sean Maguire has seen an influx of millennial patients come into his office to discuss their aesthetic concerns and goals. Here, he reveals some of the reasons why this generation is seeking plastic surgery in increasing numbers.

Self-Confidence Boost

Whether it’s because of celebrity culture or social media, millennials are very aware of their appearance, including body areas that they are unhappy with. Plastic surgery gives patients the opportunity to address cosmetic flaws and, as a result, build their self-confidence. For instance, patients who are self-conscious about the naturally thin lips can augment their lips with dermal fillers. Women who have low self-esteem due to small or asymmetrical breasts can benefit from breast augmentation with implants.

Instant Gratification

Many millennials lead very busy lives and therefore prefer to not take too much time off from their normal routine to recover from plastic surgery. Others simply want their plastic surgery results as soon as possible. Minimally invasive procedures like Botox and dermal fillers give millennials the opportunity to tweak their appearance with little to no downtime. Patients who wish to eliminate stubborn fat seek CoolSculpting, a non-surgical alternative to liposuction that freezes fat off painlessly and with no downtime.

Medical Reasons

Not all plastic surgery is performed for cosmetic reasons. Some millennials seek plastic surgery to address a medical condition. Rhinoplasty reshapes the nose to resolve conditions like a deviated septum and restores normal breathing function. Men who experience painful chafing and rashes due to gynecomastia (enlarged male breast tissue) can benefit from male breast reduction surgery. Similarly, men and women who suffer from skin irritation and chafing from excess, loose skin as a result of massive weight loss can find relief from body contouring procedures like tummy tuck surgery and body lift. Following body contouring, patients can move easier and more comfortably.

Regardless of your age, Dr. Maguire is happy to help you achieve your cosmetic goals.  To discuss your plastic surgery options, schedule a consultation by calling (502) 897-7549 today.
