Wat "luchtiger" nieuws:
Boomer women who want to turn back the clock are lining up for breast enhancements in increasing numbers, either as a post-baby “mommy makeover” or a post-hot-flash booster shot.
Between 2005 and 2008, demand for breast lifts among 40- to 54-year-old women spiked 11%. Many also had other procedures; 45% of patients who undergo cosmetic surgery come from that same age group (ePR Source 6.17.08).
Coincidence? The surge in enhancements parallels the rise of the TV drama Nip/Tuck and reality shows like Dr. 90210, which helped mainstream cosmetic procedures.
WHAT THIS MEANS TO BUSINESS
It's no secret that Boomer women want to look younger. And what better way to achieve that goal than with perky, youthful breasts?
It's hard to imagine now, but there was a time when exotic dancers were the only gals who got their breasts enhanced. Safer, more affordable procedures made the surgery attractive to many woman, especially in the wake of Nip/Tuck and pop-cultural trends.
