Spring is just around the corner, and now is the perfect time to get your body ready for the summer. However, if dieting and exercise alone aren’t helping you reach your beauty goals, it’s also an excellent time to consider plastic surgery.
You still have several months before swimsuit season, and that will allow you to heal up from one of several procedures such as breast augmentation or a tummy tuck. Or, if time is of the essence, you can always opt for a non-invasive procedure that requires little to no downtime.
We want to share with you the top five plastic surgery trends for 2020 and why they’re becoming popular.
The Light and Fresh Look
Many women are now opting for what some plastic surgeons call a “subtle transformation.” Instead of a complete “overhaul,” which usually requires multiple invasive surgeries, they’re now getting smaller procedures done, such as fillers, face, and neck lifts. This provides them with a subtle, more natural look and feel, as the overdone or overfilled look isn’t as popular as it was a few years ago.
Skin resurfacing is the perfect example. This non-invasive procedure can help reduce age spots, wrinkles, acne scarring, along with several other aesthetic imperfections. These treatments can help promote healthier, tighter, and more youthful-looking skin.
Skin tightening procedures are also becoming more popular as they allow women to achieve noticeable results without having to undergo surgery. They use high-tech lasers that send out rapid, gentle pulses of light to tighten the skin and heat collagen. This safe and non-painful method can help rebuild new collagen and improve the overall firmness of the skin.
Botox & Fillers
Botox and filler procedures were at an all-time high in 2019, and that trend is expected to continue into 2020. The continued rise in popularity is often attributed to selfies and social media. Everyone nowadays is hyper-aware of every little imperfection on their face, and that has led to younger people in their 20s looking to injectables such as Botox and fillers.
Kybella fat reduction is an FDA-approved non-invasive procedure that can significantly help reduce the amount of fat that causes the dreaded double chin that many people have. Kybella can destroy localized fat cells such that they are no longer able to accumulate fat. It provides results that are very similar to liposuction and provided that you exercise and eat healthily, the fat cells are expected not to return.
Treatments for Men
There used to be a stigma that plastic surgery was only for women. Surgeons are now seeing an exponential rise in men turning to non-invasive procedures to achieve their desired looks. They can help reduce excess fat and visible signs of aging.
Facial fillers and Botox are just two of the many procedures that provide men with facial rejuvenation results. Kybella and CoolSculpting are two non-surgical fat reduction procedures that can help get rid of stubborn fat that refuses to go away with regular exercise and a proper diet.
CoolSculpting can reduce up to 20% fat in treated areas, and it takes roughly three weeks to see the results. Full results are usually seen within four to six months. The best thing about this non-invasive procedure is that it’s simple, almost entirely pain-free, and men (and women) can return to their daily lifestyle immediately after treatment.
Customized facials are rapidly becoming a popular treatment for 2020. Licensed estheticians will sit down with you and analyze your skin, discuss its condition, and come up with a customized treatment plan just for you. First comes a thorough cleaning, which removes impurities and allows for maximum facial rejuvenation results.
Once cleansed, the dead skin cells will be exfoliated, and steam will be applied to open the pores and remove pore debris. Your esthetician will then apply one of several corrective serums based on your personalized treatment plan. Finally, a soothing mask and a protective coat of moisturizer and sunscreen will be applied. The end result is a more youthful, rejuvenated look and feel.
The Kardashian clan and other social media celebrities have made liposuction one of the most popular procedures over the past few years. This trend will undoubtedly continue in 2020 as it’s a highly versatile and effective way of getting rid of fat. The surgeon can reshape one or several problem areas during the procedure.
Liposuction offers a longer-lasting and more dramatic result than non-injectables—and it’s gone high-tech. Ultrasonic assisted lipoplasty uses ultrasonic energy that liquifies the fat. This allows for it to be removed via a low-vacuum suction. This gentle technique allows for a much larger volume of fat to be removed, and that helps reduce swelling, blood loss, and bruising.
Ultrasonic assisted lipoplasty is not a weight-reduction procedure, unlike traditional liposuction. Instead, it can help contour the body and remove localized fat deposits much better than diet, exercise, and non-invasive procedures.
