2016 was a big year for comebacks and everyone was working the old trends in a fresh way like playing Super Mario Bros. on the Nintendo NES, sporting crop tops, and buying chokers… Now in 2017, we’re looking forward to seeing what resurfaces! Luckily terms like ‘phat’ are still out but when it comes to 2017 plastic surgery trends “fat” is definitely in!
Liposuction + Bigger Butt = Plastic Surgery Trend for 2017📈 https://t.co/3UfBbglL1c
— Dr. Paul Wigoda (@DrWigoda) December 19, 2016
Many patients come to Dr. Wigoda’s surgery center seeking liposuction for problem areas like their belly or thighs and are surprised to learn that they can use the fat removed from those procedures to help rejuvenate other areas on their body. While these areas may not have been a high priority originally, it’s ideal to do both plastic surgery procedures at the same time because once the fat is removed you can’t save it for reuse later.
You may not have considered using liposuctioned fat for fat transfers before but there are a few reasons Dr. Wigoda thinks this plastic surgery trend will be hot in 2017! Liposuction can be performed on many areas of the body but there are few that would warrant a fat transfer. These are some of the top ones!
Butt I hadn’t thought about that…
2016 was also a big year for rounder, fuller bottoms but did you know you don’t need butt implants to save a figure that may be falling or flat?
A Brazilian butt lift is an augmentation procedure that uses fat from liposuction to fill and reshape the butt cheeks and outer hips to help address sagginess, asymmetry, and more. The combination of removing fat from other areas like the abs, back, and thighs and adding it to the buttocks creates a more sensual and sexy appearance, not just from the back, but from the front and sides as well.
Fat + Facelifts = 😊
When it comes to facelifts, most people scoff at the idea of transferring fat because it seems counter-productive. You want to tighten the skin and muscles, not make your face rounder, right?
Combining fat transfers with face and neck lifts can actually make patients look even more rejuvenated and youthful. Faces typically thin with age and with decrease in weight and you may even lose fat through atrophy. Facelifts on their own don’t necessarily bring that back but when fat transfers are added to cheeks, nasolabial folds and marionette lines in addition to traditional facelifts, they create an even more youthful appearance.
