With scientific, medical and technological advancements, cosmetic surgery trends change all the time. Body contouring in New York City has been growing in popularity as an effective option to treat stubborn fat pockets, sagging skin, and cellulite that are resistant to even stringent diets and rigorous exercise. In fact, the demand for body contouring procedures has reached new heights with the increasing focus on looking good. Change in beauty ideals are reflected in cosmetic surgery trends. For instance, the increased interest in buttock contouring in recent years has fuelled the demand for fat transfer buttock augmentation in NYC, with a tremendous increase over the past decade. However, other treatments continue to lead the race – liposuction has been in the top 5 cosmetic minimally-invasive procedures for several years.
What does 2020 hold for the plastic surgery industry? A recent report from New Beauty listed the predictions of top plastic surgeons and dermatologists on the top aesthetic surgery trends to expect this year:
- Fractional Facelifts: The effects of aging become visible first on the face, making treatments such as facelift surgery one of the most requested cosmetic surgical procedures in the U.S. A facelift in NYC can address folds, wrinkles, lines and creases on the face that develop due to natural aging, gravity, sun exposure and other environmental aspects, etc.
According to the report, fractional facelifts will take center stage in 2020. An expert describes the treatment, which is based on micro-coring of skin, as a technique where “anywhere from dozens to hundreds of tiny, full thickness cores of the skin are removed”. This will leaves bridges of normal skin between them, promoting skin contraction and a veritable lift, without surgery and with very little downtime.
EmbraceRF is another popular nonsurgical facial rejuvenation treatment that provides results similar to a traditional facelift. It uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to mold facial fat in strategic positions and addresses skin laxity to produce natural-looking results. With its ability to provide amazing outcomes with minimal downtime and short recovery, this minimally invasive procedure could continue to be in the spotlight in 2020. In fact, the report cites an expert as saying that in 2020, “Facial rejuvenation via thermal energy created with the aid of ultrasound or radio frequency energy will continue to on the top of the list of nonsurgical options”.
- Wide awake procedures: Many body contouring procedures are now performed as wide-awake procedure under local anesthesia (with or without light sedation) and experts predict these treatments to continue their upward trend in 2020. Plastic surgeons can use local anesthesia to perform virtually any aesthetic procedure, including liposuction, browlifts, and eyelid rejuvenation with the patient awake and comfortable. Facelifts, Brazilian butt augmentation in NYC, and hi-definition liposuction are among the many minimally-invasive procedures that skilled plastic surgeons perform using local anesthesia. Liposuction technologies such as Smartlipo (laser assisted), BodyTite (radiofrequency assisted), and VASER lipo (ultrasound assisted) provide natural-looking results when performed by a skilled plastic surgeon.
- Jawline treatments: The report predicts that more and more patients will opt to have treatments to lift and tighten specific areas of their faces, especially the midface and jawline.
Kybella in NYC is a popular FDA-approved injectable to improve the chin and jawline. This double chin treatment is an effective option to treat moderate to severe fat under the chin and improve your profile. EmbraceRF combines InMode’s Facetite technology and Morpheus8 to treat the neck and jawline. According to New Beauty, InMode’s new minimally invasive AccuTite device is one of the most exciting new treatments for both the face and body.
- Living fat transfer will replace implants: Fat transfer offers a natural way to add volume to various body areas and improve contour. Plastic surgeons expect fat grafting to continue its upward trend in the coming years. It involves removing fat from one area of your body and transferring it to another area that needs enhancement. Fat transfer in NYC is used in both cosmetic and reconstructive procedures. Performed by the best US plastic surgeons, fat transfer buttock augmentation is an ideal option for women who are looking for small to moderate improvement in buttock size. Fat grafts also improve the outcomes of breast augmentation with implants.
Other top trends that feature in the New Beauty report include long-lasting fillers combined with body-tightening devices to treat cellulite and crepey skin, and the resurgence of plasma skin due to the introduction of new plasma-powered machines.
Botox is another cosmetic treatment that is expected to be more popular than ever in 2020, according to Glamour Magazine. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) reported that the year 2018 saw 7.4 million Botox injections, an increase of 3% from 2017. Experts point out that this versatile cosmetic procedure is becoming popular among the younger generation of patients seeking preventative treatments. According to a Fox News report, millennials in their 20s and 30s are staying ahead of the game by choosing to have preventative Botox to keep wrinkles from forming. In this selfie era and social-media obsessed world, it’s not surprising that millennials are turning to preventative Botox to look their best.
