In a Business Insider article, Dr. Devgan shares her insight on a new survey about cosmetic procedures.
According to the survey, more than 1 in 3 adults in the U.S. are considering surgical or nonsurgical cosmetic treatment in the next 12 months.
“The rise of nonsurgical technologies and new treatment options have made aesthetics more accessible to a wider audience, and patients in their twenties and thirties are certainly helping fuel that trend,” Dr. Devgan said.
In fact, the survey revealed that adults under 45 are nearly twice as likely to consider cosmetic treatment as those 45 and older.
Dr. Devgan believes the younger generation is changing the way society views cosmetic procedures, as they are “more open to the idea that beauty is individualized and customizable, and that cosmetic interventions represent their personal choices about their own bodies for their own confidence.”
The survey, conducted by The Harris Poll on behalf of RealSelf also assesses what specific procedures people consider, as well as the motivations and concerns behind pursuing these procedures.
