Are We on the Rise of a Cosmetic Surgery Generation?

Cosmetic surgery is more popular than ever. In 2018 alone, almost 24 million procedures were completed worldwide, according to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. These numbers have been steadily climbing for decades, and the trend isn’t slowing down.

As cosmetic surgery has risen to new heights, more people are starting to wonder if we’re on the cusp of an aesthetic surgery generation––in our eyes, we’re already there.

Modern cosmetic surgery offers a power our ancestors could only dream of. At Desert Bloom Plastic SurgeryDr. Wallin and our entire team are proud to provide our clients the ability to carefully, safely, and efficiently work with their bodies to craft results they could never achieve alone. With the help of advanced medical technology and surgical techniques, you can join the millions of people worldwide who’ve experienced the confidence and joy of living in a body you love.

Cosmetic Surgery’s Climb to the Top

In Hollywood, plastic surgery has become as commonplace as the palm trees. The saying goes, “everyone’s doing it, and those who say they aren’t, lie.” Celebrities, CEOs, and influencers have all been early converts to the wonders of cosmetic surgery. Powerhouse celebrities like Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian, and Nicki Minaj have all brought fuller booties back into their rightful spotlight.

As of 2018, butt lifts are up by 256 percent annually compared to the year 2000, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. These high-profile players, alongside everyday people, all play a massive part in shifting the world’s view of cosmetic surgery. Today, cosmetic surgeons work with clients of all ages, genders, races, and economic backgrounds to create stunning results.

In many ways, cosmetic surgery’s rise was natural; how couldn’t modern medical miracles pick up the momentum to change our world? As surgeons have gained more knowledge and refined techniques, the increase in curious clients has been exponential.

The numbers show a very clear picture. In recent years, there’s been some fluctuation in the annual number of procedures for some more specific treatments like blepharoplasty, but the overall trend has been straight upward. Breast lifts, for instance, have seen a 108 percent increase since 2000. Botox has seen an even more meteoric rise into the household name it is today. Over the last two decades, it’s seen an 845 percent increase in annual procedures in America alone.

With the exceptional range of customizable surgical and non-invasive treatments, along with the subtler, more precise results modern cosmetic surgery provides, annual procedures are predicted to keep on rising.
