Why Millennials Are Hopping on the Cosmetic Surgery Wagon

ipl photofacial long island | Dr. Elliot DuboysIt used to be that as you would age, the more you would start to consider both surgical and non-invasive cosmetic and plastic surgery options— leaving you looking like you’re forty when you’re sixty-five. However, one trend that has taken over the cosmetic industry is that younger and younger patients are opting to get these procedures. But why are younger audiences doing this and what are they doing? Let’s take a closer look.


Most millennials are opting to get non-invasive procedures like Botox done as a preventative measure. To really understand this logic, let’s take a closer look at what Botox is and how it works.

Unlike fillers that fill in fine lines and wrinkles, Botox works by temporarily preventing your ability to make certain wrinkle-causing facial movements. Many patients feel that the less they can make these actions, the less likely they are to get as many wrinkles. Which, in turn, makes it act as a preventative tool.


In addition to getting Botox done as a preventative tool, a lot of patients are also getting fillers done to add more volume and contour to their cheeks and lips— giving them that almost Kylie Jenner look. In just a few minutes, patients can get a plumper, sexier pout that will give them the confidence they need to show their lips off on social media.
