What Generation is Most Likely to Have Cosmetic Surgery?
There is a cosmetic surgery or product for virtually every part of your body. Men and women of all ages choose cosmetic enhancements to improve their appearance, but their preferred procedure or product varies by generation. Our cosmetic surgeon offers a wide variety of cosmetic surgeries and injectables and can help you figure out which option is best for you.
Men and women between the ages of 18 and 34 grew up with the ever-changing digital age of selfies and social media. The Millennial generation is more likely to judge those who have had cosmetic surgery, but they are also more apt to use cosmetic products and procedures that delay the aging process such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, stretch mark treatments and microneedling.
Stars such as the Kardashians have also given rise to an increase in Brazilian butt lifts and lip augmentation among Millennials.
Generation X includes those born between the late 1960s and 1980s. In 2014, Gen X had more cosmetic surgeries than any other age group, which amounts to more than 4.2 million procedures. Men and women of Gen X are more likely to choose these cosmetic surgeries:
- Tummy tuck
- Breast lift
- Breast augmentation
- Breast reduction
It’s no surprise that the Baby Boomer generation is focused on anti-aging products and cosmetic surgeries to regain some of their youth. A majority of the cosmetic procedures chosen by this age group involve:
- Brow lifts
- Eyelid lifts
- BOTOX® Cosmetic
