Cosmetic Surgery Trends For 2018
More people than ever before are seeking cosmetic surgery to increase their self-confidence. In fact, since 2001, the number of cosmetic surgery procedures has increased by 132 percent! But what procedures will be most popular in 2018? According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, there will be a renewed interest in facial procedures, increased fat transfers and more men will seek out cosmetic procedures.
Trends in Facial Cosmetic Surgery
One of the fastest growing types of facial cosmetic surgery is eyelid rejuvenation or blepharoplasty. Loss of volume in the face causes the skin around the eyes to sag or look sunken. Dermal fillers or neuromodulators like Botox aren't effective around the eyes. To open the eyes, helping you look more awake and vibrant, eyelid surgery is the best option.
Rhinoplasty continues to be one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. Nearly a quarter of a million surgeries are performed each year. The surgical procedure helps reshape the nose, making a more symmetrical appearance and providing more balance to the face. The procedure requires a good deal of finesse, so it's vital to find an experienced, skilled surgeon to perform the procedure.
Reshaping with Fat
Adding volume using your body's own fat is growing in popularity. In the procedure, liposuction is used to remove fat from an area of your body such as the thighs, abdomen or buttocks. Then, it's injected into another area to add volume, definition or symmetry. This procedure can be used to improve the appearance of many areas, including the breasts, buttocks, hands or face. The results are permanent, unless you undergo a significant weight loss.
Cryolipolysis, or the freezing of fat, can help reshape your body. The nonsurgical procedure kills fat cells, and over the course of several weeks, your body fat diminishes. There is no downtime associated with the procedure.
In recent years, the number of men undergoing cosmetic procedures has increased exponentially. Non-surgical procedures among men have increased 74 percent since 2000. Botox and laser skin resurfacing are among the most popular non-surgical procedures. Among surgeries, rhinoplasty, buttock lifts and breast reductions are quite popular.
