When it comes to plastic surgery and overall cosmetic treatments, the demand just keeps growing. With continual advancements in medicine, as well as new and safer, more effective treatments, men and women everywhere are seeking out cosmetic procedures that will help address facial and body issues that concern them.
Last year, 1.8 million plastic surgery treatments were performed. Here’s what is most popular right now.
Topping the list
One consistently popular cosmetic surgery treatment is liposuction. In fact, the latest numbers indicate that 246,000 treatments of liposuction took place annually…a five percent annual increase.
Liposuction is so popular because it is a relatively quick treatment that removes stubborn fat that people have been frustrated with for years. Many times, areas of fat in the stomach, hips, thighs, arms and love handles are resistant to exercise and diet. Liposuction is a highly-effective treatment that tones and trims areas of concern for a naturally beautiful look.
Also, at the top of the list is breast augmentation. In 2017, over 300,000 breast augmentations were performed. This treatment addresses many concerns women may have about their breasts, including breasts that are small or asymmetrical, sagging breasts and even unshapely breasts.
A breast augmentation enhances the size and shape of breasts and can even involve reshaping the nipple. For women who have had a breast or breasts removed due to cancer, breast implants can restore what they’ve lost.
Another highly popular plastic surgery treatment right now is an eyelid lift, also known as a blepharoplasty. This treatment enhances the eyelid appearance by removing loose, sagging, excess skin that can create a tired or aged look and negatively impact vision. It can also remove fatty deposits on and under the eyes that create a puffy look. The result is a more refreshed appearance.
