Increased affordability of these procedures is just one of the important trends witnessed in the world of plastic surgery. Others include:
1. The rise of combination therapies
According to a survey published by the AAFPRS (American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery), more and more people are considering combination therapies. For instance, in 2016 alone, 66 percent of the facial plastic surgeons said that they performed various non-surgical procedures in the same patient, and all of them admitted that combined therapies are the top trend in their practice. This behavior has been accelerated by the invention of more advanced, as well as minimally invasive technologies. A person’s age has become an arbitrary number. Today, time is more important than money for a good number of people, as far as staying and looking young is concerned.
2. It is no longer for women alone
When it comes to surgery, men have been known to take a back seat and just watch as women take the lead role. However, men have gradually been overcoming this misconception since 2004 as more of them show concern about their sagging skins, wrinkled faces and extra fat and so on. The modern man cares about his appearance because it affects his professional and personal success. It is no wonder plastic surgeries for men are gaining popularity. Body sculpting and hair transplants are among the most popular plastic surgeries for men.
3. A growing relationship between plastic surgery and social media
In 2016, facial plastic surgeons observed a connection between social media and plastic surgery. Patients sought aesthetic service for two top reasons – to maintain their competitiveness in the labor force and also due to social media influence. 49 percent of the surgeons revealed that patients wanted different types of plastic surgeries to stay relevant at work. On the other hand, 42 percent of them said that their patients sought these procedures to look better in their social media profiles such as Instagram, Facebook Love, Snapchat and other social networks.
Patients are increasingly seeking procedures aimed at helping them solve particular lifestyle concerns. Eyelid surgeries, nose surgeries, and facelifts dominated the list of the most sought after surgical procedures. Advances in technology have contributed to the tremendous changes experienced in the market for aesthetic services. Continuous research and development have contributed to the discovery of safer, practical and more effective procedures that patients find easy to trust.
