Patient Demographics are Getting Larger and More Inclusive
With the new wave of self-awareness, health trends and clean living, cosmetic surgery is seeing a surge of new patients of all ages and body types. Dr. Greg DeLange says there is a growing desire among the population to eat better, look better and feel better – inside and out. An increased general awareness of the various types of cosmetic surgeries available has lead to more informed, motivated and determined patients who are ready to feel good about their bodies and improve their self-confidence in a big way.
Top Cosmetic Procedures
The Estetica Institute reports that while surgical procedures are still in high demand, they are now seeing an even larger demand for non-invasive, non-surgical procedures that are performed in their high-tech, on-site spa. Laser hair removal, lipotripsy (a non-invasive treatment that causes fat cells to breakdown), Botox, and laser hair removal are all at the top of the list for patients. These can all be performed in just a few hours with no recovery time needed. When it comes to cosmetic surgery inquiries, the top leaders are breast augmentation and reconstruction, tummy tucks for those who have embraced a healthier lifestyle and are now seeking to eliminate extra skin, rhinoplasty (nose jobs), and chin implants (a procedure that Marilyn Monroe had performed). The beauty industry has always been a large one, but cosmetic surgeons suspect that the new surge of interest in cosmetic surgery is now based less on “keeping up with the Jones’” or increasing ones status, and far more on patients simply seeking to regain their pre-baby body, reconstruct themselves after massive weight loss or injury, and to generally feel more at peace with themselves and have their insides and outsides aligned.
