Recent developments in the technology of plastic surgery have been so quick that if you were to suggest a particular procedure to someone, they might say, “That’s so last year.” Just in the last two years, remarkable developments have occurred in this field. So if you are still awestruck by botox and fillers, this article lists 5 plastic surgery trends that are going to swirl your world upside down:
1. The high-tech breast augmentation
This allows for the possibility of reshaping facilitated by fat transfer. The reason why this procedure has become so famous is because of its ‘close to reality’ look. Besides, compared to traditional silicone breast implants, this offers fewer risks and allows for a shorter downtime.
2. Reducing the labia
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, a labiaplasty gives a satisfaction rate of 90% to those who undergo the procedure. It is for the very same reason, this procedure will continue to be on the top of plastic surgery trends.
3. Lifting up the lips
The idea of lip lifts is to give a good uplift to the face and not overwhelm it. While this procedure can be completed within an hour, most of the plastic surgeries seem to go wrong here. However, no matter what, this still seems to be on top of the list. This procedure shortens the space between the bottom of the nose and the top of the lips, where the surgeons carve a bull horn-shape incision on the skin right below the nostrils.
4. No more regular nose jobs
Rhinoplasty is the medical term for nose jobs. Last year, the attention was shifted to ultrasonic rhino-sculpture though. It uses state-of-the-art technology where a probe emits the required ultrasonic energy. This allows the surgeons to shape the nose and also reduce the damage to the cartilage and other soft tissue. A traditional nose job, on the other hand, is largely dependent on a chisel and filing the nasal bone and also requires significant downtime. This procedure seems to cut all that down to a large extent.
5. The 3D facelift is here
Micro-surgeries in plastic surgery include fixing wrinkles and saggy skin among many. As a person ages, the facial tissues slips down the face, which causes wrinkles and sags. While fillers are used to overcome this, the 3D facelift enables the experts to reverse the ‘slipping down’ of facial tissue. What they do is essentially push the tissue back to the cheekbones so that the person gets their plump on the face back. This would certainly make them feel youthful.
The general assumption was that women were more inclined towards getting plastic surgery but there has been a significant rise in the number of men opting for one too. The market has indeed opened up for everyone.
Another crucial factor that decides the fate of popular plastic surgery trends is to determine the crucial factors that affect people’s perceived benefits in undergoing these procedures. Some results have shown low self-esteem and the need for change, media consumption, satisfaction in life, and biological sex are the top four reasons that decide the trend in plastic surgery.
