As a facial plastic surgeon in Charlotte, I have the opportunity to help many people achieve an aesthetic goal that they’ve been wanting for quite some time. Over the years, plastic surgery trends change based on several different factors, including new minimally invasive techniques and certain media attention. With a new year just around the corner, I wanted to share my take on the most popular plastic surgery trends of 2012.
Top Facial Plastic Surgery Procedures For Women in 2012
2. Facial Fillers
4. Facelift/Neck lift
With Botox and Facial Fillers rounding out the top of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgeries in 2012, it’s clear that minimally invasive procedures that can produce great results are becoming more and more important to female patients. Treatments like Botox and other injectables like Juvéderm and Restylane offer fantastic results that can turn back the aging process in just one quick office visit, requiring no down time and allowing the patient to return to their normal everyday activities immediately.
Lastly, rhinoplasty, facelift/neck lift, and blepharoplasty complete the “top plastic surgery procedures for women” list at Carolina Facial Plastics. This can be largely attributed to the fact that invasive surgical procedures offer a more permanent appearance and can better assist patients who wish to achieve certain cosmetic goals, even if they are further into the aging process. As we can also notice, all of these procedures focus entirely on very important aspects of the face that can draw unwanted attention if not tended to as we age. When a patient comes to me and expresses interest in procedures on this list, I work with them to provide a customized cosmetic surgery that will bring them the best outcomes and results.
Top Facial Plastic Surgery Procedures For Men in 2012
3. Brow Lift
4. Chin Augmentation
5. Facial Fillers
Though Botox was also the number one plastic surgery sought by men at Carolina Facial Plastics in 2012, the bottom portion of the list tends to differ. Men largely care about the appearance of their eyes, which is why blepharoplasty is often a great choice for candidates who are experiencing saggy upper eyelids or droopy lower eyelids. An increase in brow lifts and chin augmentation procedures can be attributed to the new and widespread presence of the use of social media in our society. Because we’re able to see more and more pictures and videos of ourselves, we’re beginning to notice more about our appearance that we haven’t before, which is resulting in more cosmetic procedures.
