Men and women born between 1980 and 2000 are described as the “Millennial Generation” and are often credited with social and intellectual innovations.
Millennials have grown up amidst technology and have witnessed firsthand how to harness tools for self-improvement, so it makes sense that millennials are drawn to plastic surgery.
Let’s explore four of the top plastic surgery procedures for millennials.
Breast augmentation remains among the most requested plastic surgery procedure and has evolved significantly in recent years. In the past, some people considered breast implants synonymous with a fake, oversized look, but the breast augmentations of today’s world offer subtle, natural-looking results. Millennial women who want to enhance their breasts often choose breast augmentation.
The majority of millennials spend a good deal of time on social media, which may explain the increased demand for facial plastic surgery procedures, including rhinoplasty. Platforms like Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat offer the opportunity to put our best face forward, and many strive to take flattering selfies. Bumps on the nose or other abnormalities can detract from appearance, and a nose job can correct the nose’s features for a more attractive, symmetrical look.

Mommy makeovers are increasing in demand among women between ages 30 and 35. Millennial mothers want to look and feel their best, and the customizable mommy makeover can be a wonderful option for rejuvenating the body after pregnancy.
