According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, growing trends in plastic surgery include facial procedures, increased demand for fat transfers, fat freezing, and an increase in male plastic surgery.
Trends in Facial Plastic Surgery
Plastic surgery trends for 2018 have shown an increase in popularity focusing mainly on the face. Nose reshaping, eyelid surgery, and facelifts, were three of the top five procedures performed last year.
Nose shaping, also known as rhinoplasty, helps to reshape the nose for better symmetry. Rhinoplasty can completely alter the appearance of the face and impact your overall beauty. Eyelid rejuvenation is performed when one has a loss of volume in the face. This can lead to sunken eyes and sagging skin. A facelift is a surgical procedure that improves visible signs of aging in the face and neck. By removing excess skin, smoothing deep folds, and lifting and tightening the deep facial tissues, a facelift is ideal for those who hope to look and feel younger.
New Trends with Fat
Fat transfer is on the rise. This procedure involves removing fat from one area of the body and using it to shape and plump other areas of the body. Liposuction is performed to the areas of the body that have excess fat. After a purification process, the fat is injected into different areas of the body including the buttocks, breast, and face.
CoolSculpting is one of the most popular trends right now in non-surgical body contouring. It is non-invasive, requires no downtime, and is one of the only FDA approved non-surgical fat reduction treatments. CoolSculpting freezes fat cells. Over the course of several weeks to a month, you body will shrink these fat cells until they are completely eliminated.
More men are now undergoing plastic surgery to keep a younger looking appearance or to change something they dislike about their body. These procedures include rhinoplasty, blepharoplasty, breast reduction, and liposuction. Learn more about the Top 7 Cosmetic Procedures for Men in another post.
