What are the most popular cosmetic procedures right now? Surprisingly, or not surprisingly, both surgical and non-surgical procedures, are on the rise:
Brazilian Butt Lift
Patients who are looking to enhance their buttocks, to better fill out jeans or swimsuits and in general give them a better body shape, will schedule a consultation for a Brazilian Butt Lift.
What is a Brazilian Butt Lift? Brazilian Butt Lifts involve removing fat from one area of the body and using that fat to augment the buttocks. Often, fat is removed from abdomen and flanks using liposuction, and after processing, it is placed in the buttocks. The overall change to your body contour is obvious with a rounder, fuller shape.
An article from the Washingtonian says the number of this particular procedure increased 58% in 2014. Wonder if Kim Kardashian’s popularity had anything to do with that? Generally, anyone in relatively good health can be a candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift, as long as there is enough fat to harvest for the augmentation.
The Mommy Makeover
Pregnancy, childbirth, nursing and extreme weight loss can cause unwanted changes in a woman’s body. Mommy Makeover is a complementary blend of surgeries to help you get your pre-baby, or pre-weight loss, body back. Mommy Makeovers often include a combination of tummy tuck (to remove loose skin and regain firmness), liposuction, and breast enhancement (includes breast lift and/or breast augmentation).
As we age, we lose volume in our faces, which can contribute to a sagging, hollow appearance. How does this happen? Our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat as we age. The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so smile lines and crow’s feet become more apparent.
Non-surgical fillers are popular for plumping lips, adding volume back into the cheeks, softening facial creases and wrinkles and improving the appearance of recessed scars, giving you a facial rejuvenation without surgery.
Men and Plastic Surgery
Cosmetic surgery is not just for the ladies – the industry has seen an increase in the number of men seeking cosmetic procedures. From liposuction, to tummy tucks, to male breast reduction and more, there are many surgical and non-surgical procedures that can be applied to both genders with success.
