Plastic surgery is growing in popularity with the following trends not only happening in the United States, but world-wide around the globe.
Plastic Surgery is No Longer For The Elite
Plastic surgery used to be known as something for only the rich and famous. Now, plastic surgery is something everyone is aware of and more people are openly talking about it. Males are seeking plastic surgery at a growing rate, especially over the past 10 years. About 15% of all plastic surgery procedure are now being done on male patients. This percentage is only expected to rise among the male population.
Enhancing Natural Beauty
Patients worldwide are wanting to look like themselves, just more refined. Overfilled lips and exaggerated cosmetic procedures are trends that are on their way out with “tweakments” becoming more popular. This involves small cosmetic “tweaks” so patients maintain their appearance and achieve a natural result. A successful cosmetic procedure should no longer be obvious to others. People are now starting to want to look like their own filtered photos instead of looking like idled celebrities.
Since patients are wanting to look more natural they are starting preventative treatments like Botox at an earlier age. By starting treatments at a younger age, they can prevent or delay needing to undergo more invasive procedures in the long run. In a recent AAFPRS’s annual survey, they found that facial plastic surgeons saw a 72% increase in cosmetic surgery or injectables in patients under 30.
Non-invasive procedures like filler, chemical peels and laser treatments are increasingly popular. There are many different filler options to smooth out fine lines and add volume to different areas of the face with out having to undergo an invasive procedure. Chemical peels and laser treatments are some more minimally invasive procedures that are gaining popularity in 2019. These treatments can correct or improve pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles and tighten the skin with minimal downtime.
