New technologies are emerging all the time and affecting plastic surgery practices, from the way they're connecting with patients online to how quickly those patients are recovering from their surgery.
FREMONT, CA: With scientific, medical and technological advancements, cosmetic surgery trends change all the time. The demand for body contouring processes has reached new elevations with the increasing focus on looking good. Change in beauty ideals is reflected in the aesthetic surgery trends.
For example, the increased interest in buttock contouring in recent years has fuelled the demand for fat transfer buttock augmentation with a tremendous increase over the past decade. A recent report from the New Beauty listed the prophecies of top plastic surgeons and dermatologists on the top aesthetic surgery trends to expect this year.
The effects of ageing is becoming visible first on the face, making treatments like facelift surgery, which is the most requested cosmetic surgical procedures in the U.S. A facelift can address folds, wrinkles, lines and creases on the face that develop due to natural ageing, gravity, sun exposure, and other environmental aspects.
According to a report, fractional facelifts will take the spotlight on a stage in 2020. Researchers described the treatment is based on micro-coring of skin, as a technique where anywhere from dozens to hundreds of tiny, full-thickness cores of the skin are transferred. It will leave bridges of healthy skin between them, promoting skin contraction and a real lift, without surgery and with minimal downtime.
EmbraceRF is yet another popular nonsurgical facial renewal treatment that affords results similar to a traditional facelift. It uses radiofrequency (R.F.) energy to mold facial fat in strategic positions and addresses skin indulgence to produce natural-looking results. With its ability to provide fantastic outcomes with minimal downtime and short recovery, this minimally invasive procedure could continue to be in the spotlight in 2020.
The report mentions facial rejuvenation through thermal energy that is created with radiofrequency energy. It will stay on the top of the list of nonsurgical options.
Experts point out that this versatile cosmetic process is becoming popular among the younger generation of patients seeking preventative treatments. In this selfie era and social-media obsessed world, it's not surprising that millennials are turning to preventative Botox to look their best.
