While the popularity of plastic surgery is nothing new, 2016 is shaping up to be the year of the breast lifts, actually all lifts. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) just came out with a report of all the plastic surgery trends from 2015. What leads that report? You guessed it: breast lifts and even better- painless breast lifts. Other procedures are still just as popular, but lifts are seeing a huge surge in numbers.
No More Sag – Thanks to Breast Lifts
At the top of the lift list is no surprise. Breasts! Plastic surgeons such as board-certified Dr. Paul Wigoda have seen an increase in interest in not just breast implants but also breast lifts. They’re so popular that he offers both surgeries as a pair. That’s right, not only can you change the size of your breasts but you can also make sure they’re pointing in the right direction. The ASPS states that breast lifts have increased 89% since 2000. Better surgical options like the painless version Dr. Wigoda offers could be responsible for that increase.
Bigger, Minus the Pain
Surgery techniques are changing quickly. This means better options for plastic surgery. Breast augmentation is more popular now than ever. Skilled plastic surgeons like Dr. Wigoda have created innovative ways to increase your bust size without leaving you in pain during your recovery. He actually specializes in a painless breast implants, which makes the option even more appealing both men and women. Check out the story of one of Dr. Wigoda’s patients through the journey as celebrity, co-host on the 97.3 HITS morning show with DJ Laz, Kimmy B shares her story from one hour before plastic surgery to one hour after surgery to one week after to 3 months later.
The Year of the Rear – Butt Lifts Shape Up
Next in line for popularity is the buttock lift. Trends are heading toward bigger butts, and the popularity of the buttock lift and augmentation shows that. You no longer are limited to only implants. Now plastic surgeons can also rearrange your body fat to create a curvy backside with plastic surgery procedures like the Brazilian Butt Lift.
This means you get to lose that belly, back, arm, or thigh fat and have it taken to your rear instead. Brazilian Butt Lifts can drastically transform a flat or saggy behind into something J. Lo or Kim Kardashian would be proud of.
Beauty Without the Knife
There are plenty of non-surgical options for those who are squeamish or just want a quick pick-me-up. Botox (Botulinum Toxin Type A) leads that list with an increase of 759% procedures since 2000! Other options include fillers (up 274%), chemical peel (up 14%), and microdermabrasion (up 8%).
Plastic Surgery for Men
Perhaps surprising to some, men are asking for more and more plastic surgery too. Last year, for the first time ever, 40% of the breast reductions performed were on men, also known as Gynecomastia. This means more guys are overcoming the stigma of plastic surgery and showing up to fix those issues that have bothered them for years. Since some men struggle with a genetic predisposition for breast shapes that are more feminine, this plastic surgery procedure is a great option to help them regain (or maybe gain for the first time) a look that makes them feel more confident.
Feel Beautiful After Cancer
More women are turning to breast reconstruction after mastectomy. The ASPS launched a campaign in 2012 to make more women aware of their surgical options. Since 2000, breast reconstruction surgeries have increased by 35%. After making it through such a painful ordeal such as cancer, breast reconstruction can help cancer survivors women empowered again.
Everyone has to make the right choice for their health and situation, but luckily there are now more choices than ever. Whether you want a minimally invasive surgical procedure done, something more drastic, or somewhere in between, there is an option that is a good fit for you. Thankfully, plastic surgeons have also created new, innovative plastic surgery techniques that can enhance your body shape without the pain.
Maybe the growing popularity of painless breast implants and lifts tells us one thing: people like them. If you want to see how you can have breasts that make you feel good, schedule a free consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Wigoda.
