Cosmetic Surgery Trends to Look for in 2015

Posted in Cosmetic Surgery Trends | Posted By - Dr. Philip Solomon

This year will bring on many new and exciting trends in the vast world of cosmetic surgery. Advancements in facial plastic surgery will allow doctors to perform these procedures quickly and easily, ensuring that more people will be inclined to reap the benefits.

Cosmetic Surgery Trends

Below are some incredible cosmetic surgery trends to look for in 2015:

  • The marriage of function and cosmetic
    Patients who are scheduled for a rhinoplasty due to a deviated septum will use the surgery to rid themselves of bumps and other imperfections, much like patients getting a breast reduction will likely get liposuction to better shape their new breasts. This doubling up will help the patient avoid multiple visits to their surgeons.
  • Pyramid of procedures
    Many facial treatments are given concurrently as co-treatments. Let’s say a client requests Botox in conjunction with facial fillers, this is the perfect opportunity for the fillers to more accurately target tissues, creating longer lasting results. This is often referred to as stacking or piggybacking.
  • Camera readiness at all times
    The selfie is a snapshot that people take very seriously. Close-ups of our faces are splattered across our various social media platforms making us very self-critical. For those who want to eliminate any imperfections, selfie-motivated surgery will continue to rise in 2015.
  • Forever young
    Seniors are living fuller lives than ever and for those over 70, they may want to look as young as they feel. This demographic is fast becoming an increasing percentage of facial plastic surgery patients. There’s no reason that seniors can’t look their best!
  • Eye opening procedures
    With advancements in blepharoplasty, eyelid lifts, smoothing away under-eye creases, and brow lifts will be on the menu for 2015. If the eyes are the windows to the soul, they should be clean and perfect. There’s nothing a quick eye procedure can’t fix.
  • The fatter the better
    Natural fat grafting for facial filling will continue to grow this year. Because fat grafting lasts longer and gives a more natural appearance, it remains a favourite among surgeons and patients.
  • Little tweaks here and there
    Minimal procedures such as earlobe reductions, lip lifts or even birthmark removal provide a boost in confidence. These tiny tweaks will be all the rage in 2015 because small changes can produce a huge positive impact on self-esteem.

The field of plastic surgery is rapidly advancing yielding endless benefits for patients. Topical Botox, fat-melting facial injections and new techniques are hoping to get FDA approval in 2015, making this year a great year for cosmetic surgery!
