Plastic Surgery Trends of 2021
With 2021 well underway, the leading plastic surgery trends in for the year are taking shape. Science and technology in plastic surgery are ever-advancing, meaning that there are more possibilities than ever when addressing your cosmetic goals. Here, we’ll spotlight the most prominent plastic surgery trends of the year, along with how you can benefit from these hot cosmetic treatments.
In past eras, plastic surgery was exclusively used to help older patients regain a youthful appearance of years past. Now, younger patients are heading to the plastic surgeon’s office to tackle signs of aging before they set in. By addressing the effects of aging in the earliest stages, preventative cosmetic treatments can help patients avoid more extensive treatments later in life.
Preventative Botox, in particular, is becoming a major trend among patients in their 20s and 30s. Botox injections minimize the muscle activity that can cause fine lines and wrinkles, allowing for smoother skin into older age.
As mask-wearing lingers as an effect of the COVID-19 pandemic, people are increasingly aware of their eyes’ appearance. Wearing a mask covers the lower half of the face, drawing emphasis to the eye area. The eye lift procedure (AKA blepharoplasty) enhances the look of the eyes through the reduction of excess skin and puffiness. The skin and tissue in the eye area are also tightened during an eyelift, making the eyes look more alert and youthful. To make the eyes pop above the mask, many patients will consider an eye lift this year.
Though dermal fillers are far from being a new trend, this popular type of cosmetic treatment will likely become even more popular in 2021. As patients turn to minimally-invasive treatments for cost and convenience, dermal fillers are an attractive option for various cosmetic goals. Whether you’re looking to reduce wrinkles, restore facial volume and definition, or even plump up the lips, there’s a dermal filler available to suit your needs.
