Need a Nip or Tuck? These are the Top Plastic Surgery Trends for Millennials

Millennials are self-expressive, confident, open to change and are estimated to become the most educated generation in American history. But these attributes don’t just apply to their access to Google search and their willingness to roll with the latest Instagram update. This also applies to their desire to undergo plastic surgery. The rise of social media and the developing transparency and acceptance within the cosmetic industry has caused popularity of plastic surgery among Millennials to grow. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), Millennials in 2015 made up 26.8 percent of surgical procedures and 15.9 percent of non-surgical procedures—making up 17.5 percent of the total procedures performed. The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) reported that 64 percent of member facial plastic surgeons saw an increase in cosmetic surgery or injectable treatments in patients under age 30.
