According to the latest statistics from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Americans spent more than 13.5 billion dollars on plastic surgery procedures in 2015. This total reflects Americans’ increasing interest in looking and feeling their best. So, what procedures are “in” right now? In this blog post, Dr. Donald Hause of Sacramento Aesthetic Surgery breaks down four plastic surgery trends to look out for this year.
More Millennials Having Work Done
According to the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, an increasing number of patients under 30 are seeking plastic surgery. Research shows social media, celebrities and selfies are behind the increase. Many millennials want to immediately erase new wrinkles as they pop up or achieve photo-ready glowing, radiant skin.
Luscious, Pouty Lips
Thanks to celebrities like Kylie Jenner, fuller, plumper lips are a red-hot trend right now, and the trend shows no signs of slowing down. Soft dermal fillers like Restylane and Juvederm are made of a hylaluronic acid gel that adheres to the skin as the water contained in the acid helps to retain volume under the skin’s surface. As an added benefit, these dermal fillers also fill in the lines and wrinkles around the lips, creating a youthful, more attractive appearance.
Fat Transfer for a Svelte Figure
You may have heard that more plastic surgery patients are adding fat instead of removing it. Fat transfer is the process of removing unwanted fatty deposits via liposuction and re-injecting it to other body areas such as the breasts, buttocks and face. Many patients view fat transfer as a two-in-one procedure; they’re able to slim down areas like the thighs and stomach and add natural-looking fullness to other areas. The result is a more attractive overall body figure.
Smaller Breast Size
More women are moving away from “super size” and opting for a more modest breast implant size. Some women find that a smaller bust size achieves their desired look: natural-looking breasts that accentuate their overall body figure. Plus, overly large breasts (especially on women with a small frame) are more likely to cause physical discomfort, such as back and shoulder pain.
