With beauty standards changing often, the need to keep up with the latest appearance aesthetic is growing. In 2023, it’s a common trend for people to get plastic surgery to achieve their dream body. With the help of advanced technology and high-quality safety precautions, the plastic surgery industry is always changing and allowing patients to obtain the natural looking results they desire. Procedures ranging from body contouring to facial rejuvenation continue to grow in popularity. Let’s jump into the most popular plastic surgeries of 2023!
Liposuction, professionally called lipoplasty, is one of the most popular and sought-after procedures for body contouring. In the US approximately 500,000 people undergo liposuction in 2021. A traditional liposuction procedure removes stubborn fat that won’t go away from following a healthy diet and routinely exercising. Your plastic surgeon gets rid of the targeted fat by using a small, thin tube called a cannula, that suctions the fat deposits out of the desired area. Some areas that can receive liposuction are the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, upper arms, back, and hips.
With technology advancing, plastic surgeons are finding other alternatives to reduce pain during the patient’s recovery period and improve the procedure’s accuracy. Nontraditional alternatives include laser or ultrasound assisted liposuction, making this body contouring procedure less invasive and safer, while still delivering permanent results.
Also called an abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck is another common plastic surgery procedure! If you have recently given birth or lost a large amount of weight, a tummy tuck is a great procedure for obtaining a flat and toned stomach. During an abdominoplasty, your Board-Certified plastic surgeon will remove the excess skin and repair any damaged muscles and tissue.
It’s common for patients to get a full tummy tuck, which covers their entire abdominal area. But there are abdominoplasty procedures that focus on certain parts of your stomach, such as a mini tummy tuck focusing on toning your lower stomach, or in conjunction with a thigh lift known as an extended abdominoplasty. Feel confident in your own skin with a tummy tuck that fits your needs.
Brazilian Butt Lift
In recent years, getting a Brazilian Butt Lift, BBL, has gained immense popularity. Patients will undergo two procedures during their BBL procedure: liposuction and augmentation. Fat cells get transferred from a patient’s stomach, thighs, lower back, and hips. Then, these fat cells get injected into the buttock reign, enhancing your body’s natural curves, and giving you a smoother, firmer butt.
Using fat from different areas instead of using silicone implants reduces the risk of any complications such as blood building up underneath your skin, intense pain, and fluid buildup. With an active appearance on social media from celebrities and influencers, the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure will keep gaining popularity.
With over 300,000 surgeries performed each year, many women have opted for a breast augmentation to improve the size and shape of their breasts to help regain their confidence. Women seek out for breast augmentation after they have lost a lot of weight, have gotten a mastectomy, or have recently given birth. This procedure is beneficial for women who are looking to increase their breast size and volume or correct any asymmetry.
Patients can choose their preferred implants which are: silicone or saline. Saline breast implants are put in place empty and then filled with a sterile saline solution. Silicone implants are made with a silicone gel filling and give a natural appearance. Women can choose the right size and shape that will suit their body. Although breast implants aren’t meant to last forever, silicone and saline implants can last about 10 to 20 years.
Have you noticed the beginning signs of aging and are tired of trying to find the best creams to reverse the effects? Another common plastic surgery is a facelift. This type of plastic surgery procedure removes any excess fat and loose skin and tightens the muscles within your face, leaving you with a smoother, fresher appearance.
However, with different types of facelift procedures available, your plastic surgeon will suggest the best facelift that will give you the age-defying, natural looking results you want.
Another procedure to assist with combating the signs of again is an eyelid lift. An eyelid lift, also known as Blepharoplasty, gives men and women a fresher appearance to their eyes. This popular procedure removes any pockets of fat, loose skin, and muscle in the eye area.
Plastic surgeons also can remove under eye bags during a blepharoplasty procedure. If the appearance of your eyes is not prominent, ask your plastic surgeon about getting injections such as Botox or Juvéderm, to reduce and erase fine lines and wrinkles.
With over 225,000 surgeries a year, rhinoplasty is still one of the most common plastic surgeries people get and continues to rise in popularity. Commonly known as a nose job, patients seek out this procedure if they have a deviated septum and an asymmetric nose, which tend to cause breathing restrictions.
Also, a nose job can reshape your nose by removing bumps and narrowing your nostrils. Breathe easier and feel comfortable with your appearance by getting a rhinoplasty!
