It’s getting to that time of year again where you start to glance towards the New Year. Now that the world is reopening, patients look to cosmetic procedures to make themselves look and feel great. While certain cosmetic treatments stay on top, it’s normal for trends to come and go. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular cosmetic surgery predictions for 2022.
Top 5 Most Popular Cosmetic Procedures for 2022
Technically, facial enhancements cover a range of procedures. While rhinoplasty has always been a popular procedure, treatments like eyelid surgery and brow lifts continue to rise in popularity. Anti-ageing procedures targeting the face, like facelifts and neck lifts, will continue to be popular well into the New Year. Whether it’s all the Zoom and video calls, we’re seeing a renewed focus on the eye area, both the upper eyelids and under the eyes.
In the UK, breast augmentation was the most popular procedure for women in 2020, and it’s unlikely to fall from the top position. More women opt for natural-looking size increases, with many patients having more options like breast fat transfer or breast implants.
No doubt, body contouring procedures will continue to be popular with tummy tucks and liposuction still the go-to choice for many. Unsurprisingly, liposuction continues to make the list as one of the top procedures. With different liposuction techniques, patients have more options when it comes to liposuction with Vaser and traditional liposuction offering various benefits.
Non-surgical treatments like fillers, Botox, and peels can have a large impact on your look. These types of treatments can provide a temporary result without the need for surgery and usually at a much lower price. Procedures like non-surgical rhinoplasty, Botox brow lift, fillers, and peels will continue to be popular.
Post Weight Loss Plastic Surgery
Another potential trend is a bigger interest in post-weight loss plastic surgery. These are the procedures for targeting excess skin. Often, when you lose a significant amount of weight, you’re left with excess skin that can stop you from seeing your hard work. Procedures like a tummy tuck, thigh lift, lower body lift, and upper arm lift can help to target excess skin, so you can see the results of your weight loss.
While it’s impossible to tell the future, no doubt procedures like rhinoplasty and breast augmentation will continue to take the top stops for the most popular procedures. With many people still working from home, we could see the demand for facial enhancements increase even more.
