The demand for plastic surgery continues to rise as more and more individuals are dropping the plastic surgery stigma and new treatment options emerge. As the year comes to an end, RealSelf has compiled a list of some of the most popular surgical and nonsurgical treatment options of the year. Let’s take a look!
Top Non-Surgical Procedures
Non-surgical procedures seemed to be on the rise this year, especially with younger individuals! New advances in plastic surgery are giving patients alternatives to surgical procedures. One of the most popular ones of 2017 was CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting uses cooling technology to freeze away stubborn fat cells for good. The non-surgical body sculpting procedure requires no anesthesia, little discomfort, and no downtime.
Injectables were also high on the list of popular non-surgical options. Dermal fillers and Botox are becoming popular among younger individuals who want to prevent the formation of wrinkles and the need for a surgical procedure down the road. Fillers add instant volume to an area of the face to smooth lines and wrinkles and even enhance the lips, cheeks, and other features. Botox targets the facial muscles to temporarily reduce muscle contractions that cause the appearance of wrinkles. New injectable formulas continue to emerge, giving men and women the ability to take years off their face.
Non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation has also become popular in the past year. With Geneve vaginal treatment, women can improve vaginal laxity from age or childbirth. During treatment, radiofrequency is delivered to stimulate new collagen formation and create stronger tissue. Treatment can reduce vaginal dryness and improve sexual comfort and urinary competency.
Top Surgical Procedures
While non-surgical treatment options are great for those with mild to moderate concerns, most cannot give the dramatic and long-lasting results that a surgical procedure can. Like recent years, in 2017, the most popular plastic surgery procedure was the breast augmentation. The procedure can give women larger breasts to boost self-confidence and restore their youthful appearance. Until a non-surgical breast enhancement option is developed, it doesn’t look like the breast augmentation will be losing popularity anytime soon!
Next on the plastic surgery list was rhinoplasty. A rhinoplasty is a highly customizable procedure for women who are unhappy with the natural shape of their nose, have a misshapen nose due to injury, or have functional problems with their nose. Because the nose is the central feature of the face, living with one you aren’t happy with can lead to a serious lack of confidence!
