Traditionally, the majority of plastic surgery and aesthetic procedure patients are chosen by middle to older-age adults. With procedures capable of treating the aging process, such as facelifts, breast augmentation and brow lifts, patients traditionally turned to plastic surgery as a solution to the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and loose skin.
Over the past 5-10 years, however, there have been many new procedures introduced to the plastic surgery industry which target other areas of the body. These advances have attracted a younger demographic to the industry, as young people recognize the potential advantages of cosmetic procedures.
Body contouring procedures, such as high definition liposuction, CoolSculpting and Cooltone, are rapidly growing in popularity, particularly amongst young adults.
Several reasons contribute to this rapid growth in popularity of body contouring procedures amongst younger adults, which Dr Scott Farber examines here.
What are body contouring procedures?
Body contouring procedures improve the overall shape and appearance of our physique with minimally invasive or non-invasive means.
While other procedures, such as a tummy tuck, halo lift or breast augmentation focus on a particular body part (the abdomen, butt, or breasts, respectively) and incur weeks of downtime post-procedure, newer body contouring procedures focus on body regions and generally involve little to no downtime.
What’s more, body contouring procedures enhance what many may consider an already appealing physique.
What do body contouring procedures achieve?
The majority of body contouring procedures aim to improve muscle tone and definition in general body areas. The most popular treatment areas are the thighs, buttocks, waist, hips, abdomen, lower back and upper arms.
Body contouring generally involves eliminating stubborn, excess pockets of fat, either through liposuction or super-cooling technology or by improving muscle mass and definition with muscle contraction initiation.
Why body contouring?
The benefits of body contouring manifest in several ways.
- Body contouring procedures give people a jump-start towards achieving their dream-physique, which provides much-needed motivation to maintain a workout and nutritional plan.
- Body contouring is not a replacement for an active lifestyle or healthy nutrition. Instead, it is a complementary procedure that enhances the hard-earned results of a dedicated and disciplined fitness routine.
- Younger adults are attracted to body sculpting as an affordable, time-sensitive approach to rewarding themselves for their hard work and dedication. Most body contouring procedures do not demand downtime or a change in routine.
