When we look at trends in American plastic surgery, society is starting to see a shift in which cosmetic procedures are most popular. Of the more than 14.5 million cosmetic procedures performed in the United States last year, the more invasive, previously more popular surgeries have actually decreased by about 2%. Breast augmentations, nose jobs, liposuction, and face and eye lifts are now taking a backseat to more minimally and non-invasive cosmetic procedures that can deliver restorative benefits without the surgery. The doctors at Boulder Plastic Surgery are skilled in all of the latest trends to meet your needs and restore your vibrant appearance.
Why Are Plastic Surgery Trends Shifting?
More plastic surgery patients are opting for cosmetic enhancements and plastic surgeries that focus on restoring the youthful appearance of the face. Much of this is attributed to the aging of America’s largest demographic: the Baby Boomers. The Baby Boomers are the influx of people born after WWII from 1946 and 1964, and now comprise one of the largest and most influential groups in American society. Now in their 50s and 60s, they are definitely not sitting back and aging quietly, and remain a vital component of America’s workforce. As such, they are interested in looking younger to continue to stay competitive in the workplace. This group of middle-aged men and women are still working, going back to school, changing careers, and reentering the dating scene. Hence, the shift in American plastic surgery trends towards facial rejuvenation.
Facial rejuvenation treatments include invasive surgeries such as facelifts, eyelifts, and forehead lifts; minimally invasive treatments such as Botox and injectable fillers; and non-invasive treatments such as microdermabrasion, laser peels, and hair removal. Minimally invasive treatments have increased by about 6%, as more people are finding it easier, cheaper, and less scary to undergo cosmetic treatments to enhance their appearance without going under the knife.
