Each year, new trends and innovations shape the popularity of certain types of cosmetic procedures. These emerging trends reflect changing attitudes, technological advancements, and a deeper understanding of aesthetic preferences. So, what plastic surgery trends are set to be big as we enter the new year?
From menopause makeovers to breast reductions, here we’ll take a look at the top plastic surgery trends predicted for 2024.
Menopause is a significant milestone in a woman’s life, marked by hormonal changes that often lead to physical transformations. These changes can include weight gain, altered body shape, loss of skin elasticity, and changes in fat distribution.
As a response to these changes, many women are now considering ‘menopause makeovers’. This is a new term that relates to a range of plastic surgery procedures aimed at addressing the physical effects of menopause.
These makeovers can include tummy tucks and liposuction to facial rejuvenation techniques. Most importantly, the goal is to help women feel more confident and comfortable in their changing bodies. Consequently, this empowers them to embrace this new stage of life with a positive self-image.
Plastic Surgery Trends in Breast Surgery
In 2024, plastic surgery trends in breast surgery are shifting towards a more natural aesthetic. Certainly, breast reductions are becoming increasingly popular, as women opt for smaller, more proportionate figures. This procedure involves removing excess breast tissue and skin to achieve a breast size in balance with the body.
On the augmentation front, there’s a move away from larger implants towards smaller, more subtle enhancements. The aim is for a natural look that complements the body’s contours. This trend reflects a broader shift in beauty standards towards a more authentic and individualised appearance.
New Facelift Techniques
The introduction of the weight loss drug Ozempic has presented new challenges and opportunities in the field of facial plastic surgery. Ozempic has been found to change the tissue’s characteristics, often resulting in a doughier consistency. As a result, this alteration affects how the skin responds to traditional facelift techniques.
As a result, plastic surgeons are adapting their methods, often reinforcing the skin before undertaking procedures like facelifts. These new techniques are designed to accommodate the altered tissue properties, ensuring that patients receiving Ozempic, or similar treatments can still achieve the rejuvenating effects of a facelift.
These are just a handful of the plastic surgery trends set to take over the cosmetic surgery field in the coming year. However, it is important to remember that surgery is long lasting, but trends often change year upon year.
Whatever cosmetic procedure you consider, do your research and check the credentials and experience of the surgeon first. Above all, always discuss what is involved in the procedure, what results to expect and how to ensure a good recovery in your first consultation.
