Most Popular Plastic Surgery Procedures
Cosmetic plastic surgery has surged in popularity over the last 20 years, and there is no indication that its prevalence will slow down anytime soon.
It seems that Baby Boomers and Millennials alike have an insatiable desire to look and feel their best…and why not? Boomers have worked hard, have raised their family, and now have more disposable income to spend on themselves. Millennials are driving the increases too due to social media and celebrities popularizing certain procedures. Each year we wait in anticipation to read the statistics on what were the most popular facial plastic procedures. Are we just curious . . . or are we secretly considering a little procedure ourselves? This plastic surgery trends list allows us to see what the rest of the world is doing in the facial cosmetic surgeon’s office.
A Nose Job, better known as rhinoplasty surgery, is first on the list. Concern about the size, shape, and proportion of the nose seems to be top of mind for North Americans. It is the central feature on our face, and it is obviously central in importance as well. Dr. Cory Torgerson is considered a rhinoplasty expert. He has achieved certification from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada in not only facial plastic surgery, but also in ear, nose, and throat surgery (otolaryngology) as well. His expertise has also gained him notoriety performing revision rhinoplasty surgery.
Eyelid Surgery, also known as a blepharoplasty, comes in at number 2 in popularity. As we age, eyelids may become fatty, begin to sag, and form hoods over our eyes. In some cases, “hooding” can advance and even affect eyesight. A blepharoplasty removes excess skin and fat from the eyelid and restores a fresher, rejuvenated appearance. A lower blepharoplasty can also remove the tired-looking bags from beneath a person’s eye, creating a more awake and refreshed appearance.
A Facelift, also known as rhytidectomy surgery, is number 3 on the list of the most popular facial plastic surgeries. Deep tissues of the skin are tightened, and excess fat is removed in the upper, middle, and lower sections of the face. Because there are so many non-invasive methods to tighten skin and smooth out wrinkles, people are pursuing facelifts at a later age than ever before.
Mini-Facelifts are becoming increasingly popular to target specific areas of the face that are causing concern. The middle area, consisting of the jowls, cheeks, and nasalabial folds (lines between the nose and mouth) cause the most anxiety. A mini face lift requires less downtime and, of course, is less expensive than a full facelift.
Chin Implant surgery is number 5 on the list of top facial cosmetic procedures. People who are unhappy with their profile or have a backward-sloped chin often request this surgery. It is an extremely easy procedure that can be performed while the patient is under local anaesthetic. Chin implants are extremely popular with the Asian population.
