Even in the face of economic uncertainty and after a chaotic few years of a global pandemic, cosmetic surgeons in Arkansas and across the country are seeing a surge in requests for breast augmentation, liposuction, tummy tucks and other cosmetic procedures.
Millennials and Gen Xers — particularly women in their late 30s and early 40s — are a driving force behind this increased demand for cosmetic surgery after the pandemic. We break down some of the interesting reasons why here.
A Newfound Focus on Self-Care
If there is a bright spot that came out of the pandemic, it is the newfound focus on self-care. Many people in this age group used their free time at home to eat healthier, exercise and lose weight that they’d been trying to lose for years. Now, they are looking to fine-tune those amazing results with body contouring procedures like liposuction or a tummy tuck.
WFH Makes Recovery That Much Simpler
Even as we shift to post-pandemic norms, many Millennials and Gen Xers are still able to work from home, making it easier to take advantage of flex time or part-time WFH arrangements while recovering from cosmetic surgery. Cosmetic surgery recovery typically ranges from 1 to 2 weeks, depending on the type of procedure.
Millennials and Gen Xers Have Done Their Research
These generations have more access to a wealth of information about cosmetic surgery procedures than ever before. Thus, Millennials and Gen Xers are coming to cosmetic surgery consultations very well-informed about their options and candidacy for certain procedures.
