At AW Plastic Surgery, we’re seeing more millennial patients each year for body contouring treatments, especially Emsculpt®, and we think it’s because body-contouring treatments are uniquely suited to the millennial generation. Here’s why.
Many Millennials Seek Body Contouring Because of Weight Loss or Gain
For several years, the top three plastic surgery procedures among millennials, have been liposuction, breast augmentation, and the tummy tuck, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. These three popular body-contouring procedures are often tied to a patient’s weight loss or weight gain, which are common trends among millennials who are either experiencing a decline in metabolism for the first time or reclaiming control of their health after years of being overweight. To put it simply, past the years when they could eat anything and not gain weight, millennials suddenly find themselves needing to pay closer attention to their weight and health.
Millennials are also taking a keen interest in some of the newer body-contouring systems that non-invasively shape the body by heating, cooling, or using electromagnetic energy to alter fat cells. At AW Plastic Surgery, we use Emsculpt® to help build muscle and burn fat in areas where no amount of exercise seems to make a difference. Emsculpt® is a non-surgical option for many younger millennials who are trying to kick that “freshman 15” they put on back in college, or older millennials who want to tighten up their neglected “dad or mom bods.”
Millennials Want to Reclaim Confidence in Their Body After Starting a Family
Pregnancy obviously alters the body in many ways for women, but stressed out, tired new dads, too, tend to put on a few extra pounds as they settle into their new roles. Once they’re done having kids, many women in this age group want to reverse some of the effects of carrying children and giving birth. They explore body-contouring treatment packages such as the mommy makeover, tummy tuck, and breast lift. The mommy makeover focuses on contouring areas such as the breasts, buttocks, belly, and genitalia.
Emsculpt® can be a potent addition to any mommy makeover because it not only helps burn fat and sculpt the midsection, but it also helps strengthen a new mom’s damaged and overworked core muscles. We often recommend Emsculpt® for women who experience diastasis recti, a condition in which the abdominal muscles separate during pregnancy that impacts nearly 60% of pregnant women.
Millennials Try Emsculpt® Because They’re More Conscious of Their Image
The first selfie generation, Millennials photos appear on their social feeds constantly. With high definition cameras in their pockets, they want to look good from all angles at all times.
Emsculpt® is popular for millennials who want to show off their sun-kissed skin at places like the beach and out on the water, without having to undergo a lengthy recovery from surgery. Instead, Emsculpt® uses high intensity focused electro-magnetic (HIFEM) energy to burn fat and tone areas such as the belly and buttocks. To put it simply, it manipulates the muscles in a way that mimics many intense workouts in one short treatment session.
