Popular plastic surgery trends are constantly changing. With the recent pandemic, an increase in working from home and attending regular Zoom meetings, surgeons saw an increase in facial procedures. However, as the world begins to return to normal, cosmetic trends in 2022 seem to be bringing back the balance between body and facial procedures. However, there are some new trends that surgeons are seeing across the United States.
1. Patients Are Taking Recovery More Seriously
Many people are turning to plastic surgery in order to prevent the signs of aging instead of just trying to reverse them.
With many companies and individuals still working from home or permanently transitioning to at-home positions, people are able to consider plastic surgery with a better focus on recovery. In previous years, plastic surgery decisions were often made based on the desired results and how long the recovery period would be, as people needed to get back to work quickly. Now, they can choose the comprehensive procedure they really want, such as a mommy makeover, and have the time to recover from home while still able to work, putting a focus on results and not timeframe.
2. Focus Is on Prevention and Proactive Treatments
When you think of procedures such as facelifts or eyelid surgery, you often assume that this procedure is limited to those above the age of 50 with significant signs of aging. The new trend, however, is seeing millennials opting to have facelifts or mini facelifts in order to maintain their younger appearance and slow down the signs of aging. If you aren’t quite ready for surgical intervention, facial procedures, such as Silhouette InstaLift, can provide a nonsurgical facelift alternative.
3. More Men Are Choosing Plastic Surgery
For decades, women have accounted for the majority of plastic surgery procedures performed each year in the United States. While women do still dominate, men are coming in more and more for surgical intervention, such as for liposuction, neck lifts, and facelifts.
