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.

Your Scottsdale Cosmetic Consultation

Your initial consultation with board-certified Scottsdale plastic surgeon Dr. John Corey is the first step in achieving the look you desire. No matter if you are interested in facial plastic surgery, breast augmentation, abdominoplasty, or any number of other procedures, Dr. Corey will listen carefully to your desires, assess your body, and help you determine what options will best meet your needs.

What to Bring to Your Consultation

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.

TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING?

Who operates on these people? We’ve all seen them, people who have had so much plastic surgery that they look scary! People who looked really good...about 5 surgeries ago! I have a revolving list of celebs that get named routinely when prospective patients tell me what they DON’T want to look like. I can’t tell you here (email me..) but I think this happens through a combination of ego (on both the doctor and patient), flattery, coercion, and loss of perspective. Ok and maybe some greed as well. Now sometimes you have to do what the client wants.
