Talk of the Town

Talk of the Town is a blog about life in Atlanta. You’ll find features on people, places and events that local people (and the world) are talking about. Plus, you’ll find newsy scoops on things people should be talking about.

Millennials in Atlanta want big badonkadonks and flat tummies


Metro area millennials are looking to put a little more junk in their trunks, according to data from RealSelf, the largest community for information about cosmetic surgery .

In 2015, Brazilian Butt Lifts saw the most growth among 18-35 year olds nationwide, with 53% of millennials seeking this type of enhancement. Among millennials in the metro area, the procedure was the most researched topic...period.

Also among the top five most popular procedures desired by Atlantans under 35 were (in order): breast implants, tummy tuck, Mommy Makeover and breast reduction.

This makes sense as 90% of all new mothers in 2014 were millennials, according to Mashable.

Mommy Makeovers have been big business in Atlanta for several years and younger moms are now joining the ranks. But the Brazilian Butt Lift craze? I'll defer to Trace Adkins on that.
