Plastic surgery used to be a thing that was only associated with celebrities and the wealthy. That hasn’t been true for a long time, now that cosmetic surgery is so much more affordable and accessible. Which is also why you see so many different age groups and body types opting to go under the knife.
As a matter of fact, Americans spend over $16 billion on surgeries, and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures, each year. That includes lip injections and body sculpting. People in their twenties and thirties are getting cosmetic procedures done now more than ever.
If you’re curious as to just what the younger crowds are getting work done on, we have the top five popular picks.
- Breast Augmentation
For women in their 20s and 30s, they’re at the prime age for breast augmentation. As soon as the breasts stop growing, the tissue is ripe for implants. Wait too long and the time it takes for the breast tissue to recover may result in imperfect results.
That’s why almost half of all breast augmentations come from the 20s and 30s. Young women want to live their lives to the fullest, which is hard to do when you have a flat chest or too large of a chest. Clothes are harder to find, sexy lingerie is unflattering, and swimsuits just don’t fit as they should.
Breast implants have come a long way, especially. The latest development that is receiving high praises is called “gummy bear” implants. They’re not only more resilient against rupturing, but they also deliver fantastic shape and perkiness.
Women love these implants because they closely resemble breast tissue and do not suffer from the ripple effect that comes with saline or silicone. In motion, these implants move naturally and keep their shape well.
Also known as the “nose job”, rhinoplasty is a cosmetic surgery that is commonly associated with old age corrections. The truth is, rhinoplasty is more than just cosmetic, it can be life-changing. Sometimes the nose’s shape can impede breathing or make people more susceptible to breaks or nosebleeds.
Cosmetic surgery on the nose can be a touchy and delicate process, that’s why it is important to go in very prepared. Know exactly what you want to be done to your nose and how you would like it to look after it is finished. Using pictures of ideal noses is one way to find your perfect nose.
Even if the goal of a rhinoplasty is to correct biological abnormalities, achieving your ideal shape is still important. Don’t let anyone tell you that you’re vain for wanting cosmetic surgery done on your nose at such a young age! A plastic surgeon can really bring out the best features of your face.
The surgery itself usually doesn’t take long, but the healing process can take some time due to the nature of the tissues and cartilage. Any temporary discomfort or embarrassment is well worth the lifetime of improvement.
- Body Contouring
This category of cosmetic surgery includes a multitude of different procedures, including: tummy tucks, arm lifts, thigh lifts, liposuction, and full body lifts. These procedures are especially prominent in younger people who have just lost a lot of weight. The leftover skin can be an unsightly reminder of your once previous shape.
Liposculpture, in particular, is such a revitalizing option that keeps you looking younger, longer. Technology has advanced to where doctors can go in with minimally or non-invasive tools to zap, suck, and tighten all of that excess away in a matter of minutes. These techniques ensure fast recovery and fast results, helping you feel more confident than ever before.
- Cosmetic Fillers
You might have heard of these fillers or injections before on paid programs or in celebrity news headlines. The most commonly used filler uses hyaluronic acid, which is actually a naturally occurring ingredient in the skin. Fillers are very popular dermal procedures with 20-somethings because they provide smoother features on the face.
Typically, those with concave features on the face are stuck with them, with possible deepening of them as they get older. The most common locations on the face are around the eyes, lips, and cheekbones. Even a perfectly healthy person with normal body weight can look unfairly sunken.
This is why people in their twenties and thirties are getting injectable fillers now to combat sagging later.
- Lip Augmentation
The lips have grown tremendously over the years as sought after features. Women with big lips can show off their lipstick better, kiss better, and so forth. Celebs like Kylie Jenner have popularized this cosmetic upgrade and have proved its effectiveness.
Sometimes, lip augmentations are done in conjunction with other cosmetic surgeries, such as facelifts or brow lifts. The dermal tissue used in those procedures can then be applied to the lips. This is the most natural way to plump up your lips, however, fillers can be used instead.
As mentioned previously, lip injections will use fillers like hyaluronic acid or other materials to achieve the level of fullness one wants. There is always some swelling that will make the lips appear out of proportion, but they will return to normal after a few weeks.
Whatever you do, don’t opt for DIY lip augmentation products. They either don’t last long or cause unintended damage to your lips. Stick with the professionals.
