Plastic Surgery Trends

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons has recently released its annual report on plastic surgery trends. Not surprisingly, breast augmentation remained the most popular plastic surgery procedure in 2014, with over 286,000 women seeking enhancement from board-certified plastic surgeons. Rounding out the top five most popular cosmetic procedures in this report are nose reshaping, liposuction eyelid surgery and face lift.

Medical Tourism

I always try and encourage patients’ to have surgery as close to their home as possible, making pre-and post-op visits so much easier and of course, being close to their surgeon in the rare case of a complication. But we do know that people travel all over the United States for surgery with specific doctors. I have that happen in my own practice. So the concept of “travel” isn’t a new one.

ARE MEN CRITICAL OF WOMEN? DO THEY CARE IF THEIR BODIES ARE PERFECT?

I think at times there is a misconception that the office of a Plastic Surgeon on any typical day is filled with fragile self-esteemed women who have been “gently” ushered in at the elbow by dominating men with a low set brow. I can tell you that in my almost 20 years of practice, that is not the case. Oh, don’t get me wrong…It does happen. But it is so rare, that I would be shocked if I see more than 2 cases a year of that. But what I do see on any given office day, is confident women who have pretty clear cut goals about what they want and what makes them happy; and what of the men?

NEW TRENDS IN BEAUTY

It seems like we are always looking for new trends in beauty and fashion. And sometimes it hard to tell which tail is wagging which dog but two things have become apparent of late, at least in the field of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Both concern the face and our interpretation of beauty. It’s funny to think that appreciation of human aesthetics can change over time the way skirt length or necktie width do, but they do.

LETS TALK ABOUT SEX

Truthfully, many people want to have plastic surgery to not only boost confidence, look more rejuvenated, appear more youthful, but they also want to feel sexier. So, when is it appropriate after your procedure to “get it on”? The answer is, it depends on the individual and type of surgery, but some common sense applies too.
