Year after year, plastic surgery trends gain or lose popularity. In addition, medical advances continue to introduce new types of procedures and treatments for less invasive solutions or to enhance the outcome of a selected procedure. Let’s take a look at some of the popular plastic surgery procedures trending from 2016, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons:
Fat grafting is a procedure where liposuction removes the fat from one area of the body to another. To remove fat from the abdomen and move the fat to add volume to the face, buttock, and breasts became extremely popular last year. This procedure allows the patient to “kill two birds with one stone” by removing fat from another area to provide more volume in another.
Facelifts were among the top five procedures performed in 2016. This includes removing sagging neck skin or jowls and creating a more defined, youthful-looking jawline. Nose reshaping was also one of the top five most popular procedures in 2016, proving that the face was a very popular area for improvement.
Labiaplasty procedures spiked in 2016. This procedure allows a woman to become more confident with her genital appearance. Many of these procedures included reshaping and resizing of the labia and although a large labia isn’t abnormal, size preference has become more and more popular.
Breast augmentation was the top most performed surgery from 2016 with 290,467 procedures done across the United States. This procedure has remained at the top of this list since 2014 according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Although we are seeing an increase in these procedures, we are seeing all types of requests from larger breasts, to smaller, more natural-looking implants.
