Prejuvenation, Selfies & Millennial Men
The AAFPRS also predicts rising popularity for “prejuvenation,” the concept that younger patients have age-prevention cosmetic procedures — from skincare and injectables to laser and light therapies.
Social media selfies will continue to fuel patient demand. More than 40% of AAFPRS members noted in the AAFPRS member survey in 2016 that patients were requesting facial plastic surgery to look better on social media.
The New Year will feature a greater focus on transgender/feminization procedures at academic centers.
Millennial men will continue to want to maintain. A survey by the AAFPRS, found that nearly a third of men surveyed said they are "extremely likely" to consider a surgical or nonsurgical cosmetic procedure. Of those men, 58% were between 25 and 34 years old while 34% were 18 to 24 years old.
