The millennial generation has slightly different preferences compared to previous generations when it comes to plastic surgery. These trends are easy to track, as millennials are the most likely to post their plastic surgery stories on social media.
There are conflicting definitions of what ages constitute the “millennial” generation, so for the purposes of this article, we’ll talk about people born between 1980 and 1995. Read on to learn the most popular millennial plastic surgery trends right now.
Rhinoplasty (Nose Job)
The rhinoplasty procedure remains as in-demand as ever. The nose is the most prominent feature of your face and is often the primary source of facial insecurities, no matter your age group.
Social media photography has made a shapely, symmetrical nose all the more desirable. For these reasons, rhinoplasty is arguably the most popular millennial plastic surgery trend, and it also remains #1 among older generations as well.
Breast Reduction and Breast Lifts
Large or asymmetrical breasts not only impact your appearance but can also cause back pain, daily discomfort, and difficulty exercising. Among millennials, breast reductions and breast lifts are becoming some of the most popular plastic surgeries.
Safe and effective plastic surgery is more accessible across the United States, and younger generations are more likely to consider plastic surgery to alter their breasts in comparison to the older generations. These two procedures are most often performed together.
Plump, full lips have skyrocketed in popularity since celebrities like the Kardashians boasted their luscious lips all over Instagram. Thin, shapeless lips are now out of vogue, and more millennials than ever are turning to lip fillers to improve their confidence (and their selfies).
The lip filler procedure involves a simple injection of fillers that you and your injector will decide upon during your consultation. Your injector will choose a material that works best for what you want to achieve. Multiple injections may be necessary to get the results you want, and you may need regular injections after that to keep up the look.
Lip fillers are not technically a surgery, but they’re commonly performed in a plastic surgery facility. This cosmetic procedure is so popular that we had to add it to our list of most popular millennial plastic surgery trends.
Brazilian Butt Lift
We can pinpoint the Nicki Minaj Anaconda video as a defining cultural shift towards full, voluminous derrieres. In contrast to previous generations, a procedure for a plump, pear-shaped body is an incredibly popular plastic surgery among millennials.
The Brazilian Butt Lift involves a fat transfer to enhance, lift, and reshape your glutes into a shape that gives you symmetric and attractive curvature. This procedure uses no foreign materials like silicone, so the result will look and feel natural.
