What is the ‘ideal beauty standard’ across generations?

According to a recent Real Self survey, femaleMillennials and Baby Boomers have more in common when it comes to beauty standards than many may think. Despite the 40-plus years in age difference, these women share many of the same concerns, desires and possible future changes.

The study indicated that 87 percent of American women ages 18-64 are unhappy with at least one area of their body. Almost one-third of these women would be willing to undergo a cosmetic change to increase their overall confidence.

Both generations had an increased interest in anti-aging treatments such as facelifts, eyelid surgery and other face procedures. Other data stated that:

  • Breast augmentations are still one of the most popular surgeries
  • Tummy tucks are the most popular among women ages 25-64
  • The “mommy makeover,” a combination of a breast augmentation and tummy tuck, saw an increase of 33 percent in 2014.

Although they share similarities, their motivations for change are quite different. Baby Booms cite their desire to fit in as a main reason for a cosmetic procedure. In contrast, many Millennialsundergo plastic surgery to enhance their features and stand out from their peers, especially in the workplace.

The final findings of the survey stated more than 60 percent of respondents believe a person has a right to look exactly how they want and should be able to achieve it as they choose.

When you look good, oftentimes you feel good about yourself. Confidence is key when it comes to many aspects of life, and it starts with you.
