When most people think about plastic surgery, they think about celebrities and their quest for eternal youth. While plastic surgery has a long history with celebrities, it’s more recently become about giving people the opportunity to look and feel like themselves. The shift toward individuality is reflected in the many different types of procedures and accessibility you can enjoy with the help of a board-certified plastic surgeon. If you’re considering plastic surgery, then here’s what to know about it and what’s new.
What Are the Most Popular Plastic Surgery Procedures?
The most popular plastic surgery procedure remains breast augmentation which is up 14% from last year. Other popular procedures include:
- Liposuction has seen an increase in popularity as people look to sculpt their bodies
- Nose jobs are also on the rise as people look to improve their breathing and appearance
- Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is increasingly popular as people look to improve their appearance and reduce the signs of aging
- Breast lift surgery is popular among women who look to improve their breast shape and size.

- Facelift surgery is popular among those who want to reduce signs of aging
What Are the Newest Trends in Plastic Surgery?
Plastic surgery procedures are all about helping people achieve a unique look. In the past, patients would choose to have procedures designed to make them look like a celebrity or models. Nowadays, patients are more likely to want a natural look that enhances their features. There are a few reasons for this shift in thinking. First of all, celebrities are airbrushed and Photoshopped to perfection; it’s no wonder that people think they need to look like them. Secondly, social media has made it easier for people to see what their friends and family look like; they can compare themselves to real people, not celebrities. Finally, people realize that plastic surgery is not a one-size-fits-all solution. It’s essential to choose a surgeon who will take the time to understand your individual goals and help you achieve them.
