It’s no surprise that social media is playing an influential role in teen’s lives and self-conscientiousness. This influence is contributing to a younger population among rhinoplasty (nose surgery) clients here in Newport Beach and world-wide. Those under age thirty are flocking to plastic surgery offices for procedures ranging from rhinoplasty to injectables and non-invasive therapies.
Delaying and reversing the aging process is popular among both men and women as well as the young and old. It seems that women under thirty five are primarily taking measures to prevent visible signs of aging for longer, while young men are more likely to pursue rhinoplasty, neck liposuction, chin implants, and acne reduction procedures.
Still, women are the most likely candidates for facial plastic surgery and account for approximately eighty percent of all surgical and non-surgical procedures in 2013. Out of these women, mothers outnumber other groups, making up two-thirds of all procedures on women last year. We’ve found that men in Orange County are most concerned with wrinkles and having a full head of hair, while women more likely to elect to have a facelift or eyelift to avoid the appearance of age.
Women are also very likely to have rhinoplasty if any unsightly asymmetry exists. Rhinoplasty and facelifts are still the most popular cosmetic surgical procedure among women. Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) is next in line. In 2013, BOTOX®, ranked as the most commonly performed non-surgical procedure among women, followed by hyaluronic acid injections, superficial peels/microdermabrasion, and non-ablative resurfacing. The popularity of rhinoplasty still ranks number one among both sexes, and rhinoplasties are the most requested surgical procedure for men and women under the age of thirty five.
Interestingly enough, it seems like plastic surgery is becoming a family affair as well. Female family members, especially, like to undergo procedures together but husbands and wives are actually the most likely to schedule plastic surgery together. Women, typically tend to be the driving force behind the decision, but a good portion of male plastic surgery requests result from their significant other having undergone facial plastic surgery.
