Why Millennials Are Hopping on the Cosmetic Surgery Wagon
It used to be that as you would age, the more you would start to consider both surgical and non-invasive cosmetic and plastic surgery options— leaving you looking like you’re forty when you’re sixty-five. However, one trend that has taken over the cosmetic industry is that younger and younger patients are opting to get these procedures. But why are younger audiences doing this and what are they doing? Let’s take a closer look.
Most millennials are opting to get non-invasive procedures like Botox done as a preventative measure. To really understand this logic, let’s take a closer look at what Botox is and how it works.
Unlike fillers that fill in fine lines and wrinkles, Botox works by temporarily preventing your ability to make certain wrinkle-causing facial movements. Many patients feel that the less they can make these actions, the less likely they are to get as many wrinkles. Which, in turn, makes it act as a preventative tool.
In addition to getting Botox done as a preventative tool, a lot of patients are also getting fillers done to add more volume and contour to their cheeks and lips— giving them that almost Kylie Jenner look. In just a few minutes, patients can get a plumper, sexier pout that will give them the confidence they need to show their lips off on social media.
During your initial consultation with Associated Plastic Surgeons & Consultants, we will not only go over any concerns you may have but we will also go over any and all options that are available to you!
If you are in your twenties or thirties and are wanting to either take preventive measures or just add a bit more volume to your lips and cheeks, schedule a consultation at our Huntington Office today by calling (631) 423-1000.

Sex Reassignment Surgery: A Few Things to Know
One of the surgical treatments that we offer here at our Associated Plastic Surgeons & Consultants office is sex reassignment surgery for both males to female and female to male. As a procedure that’s just as much about the emotional aspects as it is about the physical aspects, we have created a brief guide listing some basic things for every sex reassignment candidate to know. Let’s take a closer look.
Here at Associated Plastic Surgeons & Consultants, our main goal with sex reassignment surgery is to make sure that you feel confident, calm and prepared for this surgery. And although most surgeries only require one or two consultations before surgery, we encourage our sex reassignment patients to come into our office for as many consultation appointments as you need.
Here at our office, we don’t administer hormones, but patients who are undergoing this type of surgery will be encouraged to meet with an endocrinologist beforehand. Typically, hormone therapy is the first step in this process and will need to be done before sex reassignment surgery.
Before surgery, we required patients to have undergone hormone therapy and lived as the opposite sex for a full year. Additionally, we encourage patients to be enrolled in a transgender program for emotional support.
If you are considering undergoing sex reassignment surgery, contact our Huntington office today at (631) 423-1000 to schedule your initial consultation.
