Great article posted on the ASAPS website. The Acara team has seen this for the past few years where there is more demand coming out of the younger generations than the BabyBoomers, like so many assume:
“First, who is Generation X? They are adults between the ages of 31 and 45. This is the age of becoming something, otherwise known as living in a pressure cooker. The race is on: get a great job, get married, have babies, buy a house and start saving for retirement. The added caveat is that now you have to do it in a recession economy.
So when this “put upon” generation has a couple of extra dollars, what are they doing with it? According to Fox Business.com, November 21, 2011, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) reported that “adults between the ages of 31 and 45 accounted for 43% of all cosmetic procedures in 2010. Baby boomers, aged 51 to 64, who do in fact have more expendable income, accounted for just 28% of such procedures.”
