More than 50 percent of Latina Influencers think that non-surgical body contouring works well with diet and exercise, according to an Allergan-sponsored survey.
The survey results were part of a panel discussion with Vivian Bucay, MD a San Antonio, Texas dermatologist; Gia Fey, Curveygirls Fitness trainer and creator of Body by Gia; and Ana Flores, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of #WeAllGrow Latina Network, an organization dedicated to leveraging social influence to grow a community of Latinas through online conversation, held on May 19th.
In the survey of 255 members of #WeAllGrow’s Latina influencer network, 63 percent said they are considering cosmetic surgery to look better as they age, and 42 percent said they consider themselves to be the first of their friends/family to try new aesthetic treatments. What’s more, as many as 94 percent of respondents said they have troublesome spots on their bodies that they want to lose, mostly centered in the mid-section, and one in two respondents (52 percent) shared they are in favor of combining diet and exercise with a body contouring procedure such as CoolSculpting.
"The #WeAllGrow Latina Network is focused on empowering women," said Ana Flores of #WeAllGrow Latina Network. "Through this effort, we have been able to share information on a topic that some may consider taboo - the steps we take as part of our personal care regimen, including how we address diet, exercise and stubborn body fat."
