As we enter into a new decade, experts have predicted the cosmetic procedures likely to dominate in 2020. Each year, new trends emerge within the field. So, what can we expect to be the most popular this year?
Below, we’ll look at some of the procedures set to dominate the industry over the coming year.
Cosmetic surgery trends: Fat transfer to the breast
Breast augmentation has remained one of the most popular cosmetic procedures for decades. In 2020, it shows no signs of slowing down in popularity. However, the way in which the procedure is performed is expected to change as we enter a new decade.
More and more patients are opting for fat transfer to the breast, rather than standard implants. While improvements have been made within the breast implant sector, there has been some worry presented over their safety in recent years. While they are still regarded as one of the safest procedures, fat transfer is an even safer technique which produces great results.
As the fat is taken from the patient’s own body, there are very few risks and complications involved. The results are also much more natural as the volume is made up of natural fat, rather than an implant.
Cosmetic surgery trends: The age of the jaw
In 2019, surgeons saw an influx of patients seeking jaw tweak surgery. Throughout the next year, it is expected that this trend will continue to rise. This is largely thought to be down to the rise in the number of images we take of ourselves. Sites such as Instagram, make us more aware of how we look from different angles. The jaw can make a huge difference to the profile of the face. Therefore, making small tweaks can drastically alter the appearance.
Common procedures to improve the jawline include a jaw lift, fillers and hyaluronic treatments. A chin implant is a common procedure used to improve the jawline and profile – a relatively small procedure with short downtime and very successful results.
Cosmetic surgery trends: Muscle relaxing injections will continue to rise in popularity
Another procedure that’s set to dominate in 2020, is the muscle relaxing injection. This is already one of the most popular procedures carried out throughout the country. However, improvements within techniques are making the procedure even more popular. This is especially true with the younger generation.
These are just a few of the top cosmetic surgery trends to watch out for in 2020. Before undergoing any procedure, it is important to have a consultation to determine the type of procedure that would prove most beneficial for the results you’re looking for.
