In this blog from Prive Plastics in Florida, we anticipate which facial plastic surgery trends will increase in popularity this year.
What Facial Plastic Surgery Trends Can We Expect In 2023?
For years, breast augmentation has been the most popular plastic surgery procedure. However, treatments and procedures to enhance the face are becoming increasingly popular. Rhinoplasties are still popular, but modern men and women are more aware of other options to enhance their appearance. This is due to the amount of Zoom meetings, FaceTime calls, and social media posts they are exposed to. Plastic surgery trends we expect to see in 2023 include:
- Increased Popularity Of Brow Lifts, Eyelid Lifts, and Neck Lifts
- Continued Popularity Of Neurotoxins And Dermal Fillers
- More Male Clientele Choosing Plastic Surgery And Injectables
What Is A Brow Lift?
Our eyebrows are an important part of how we communicate. For example, a furrowed brow can indicate confusion or unhappiness, while a smooth brow is usually a sign of relaxation or being at ease. Over time, our eyebrows can lose their elasticity and start to droop, which can give the impression that we are angry, displeased, or judgmental. To counter this, brow lifts are a type of cosmetic facial surgery that can help lift the eyebrows and restore their original, relaxed look. It is also called a forehead lift or rejuvenation.
What Is An Eyelid Lift?
An eyelid lift, also known as blepharoplasty, is divided into two distinct types: upper and lower blepharoplasty.
- Upper eyelid blepharoplasty is most often used to treat sagging upper eyelids that obstruct vision and may be covered by insurance as a medically necessary procedure. This procedure involves removing excess skin, fat, and tissue from the upper eyelid area. It can improve vision and restore an alert and awake appearance to the face by removing hooded eyebrows.
- Lower eyelid blepharoplasty is used to address drooping lower eyelids, chronic puffiness, wrinkles, and fine lines caused by a loss of elasticity and fat in the lower eyelid area. This procedure eliminates baggy eyes and wrinkles, restoring a more youthful look.
What Is A Neck Lift?
As we age, our neck skin begins to lose collagen, leading to a decrease in elasticity and the sagging of the tissues. This can cause us to look worn, tired, and prematurely aged. Neck lifts can help to combat these effects and restore a youthful vitality. Stress, sun exposure, genetics, and bad habits like smoking and drinking can all contribute to the aging of the skin and tissues in the neck. The neck lift procedure was designed to help restore fullness, shape, and tightness associated with a youthful appearance.
What Are The Benefits Of Neurotoxins And Dermal Fillers?
Three of the most well-known names in the dermal filler market are Restylane®, Juvederm®, and Sculptra®. These are biosafe gels injected into areas where additional volume is desired in order to create a softer, more youthful look. Dr. Wu can use these fillers to fill in hollows under the eyes, give the cheeks more fullness, or even enhance the jawline. Lines and wrinkles around the mouth can also be treated. In some cases, these fillers can be used to address any thinning in the arms, hands, and knees.
Neurotoxin-based cosmetic treatments such as Botox® and Dysport®, as well as the new Daxxify™, are designed to reduce and even eliminate wrinkles and fine lines. With proper application, these treatments can even lift a drooping brow or turn up the corners of the mouth. Results can be seen in as little as one single visit. These treatments can also be used for crow’s feet, large muscles, motion lines, facial asymmetry, necklines, and the 11’s. In addition, they can also be used to reduce excessive perspiration and treat chronic migraines.
Is Plastic Surgery More Popular Amongst Men?
In the past, most people who had plastic surgery were women. Now, though, there is a growing number of men seeking cosmetic treatments, which is changing the field of plastic surgery. The desire to maintain a youthful appearance is also driving the interest in male plastic surgery, since employers are looking for vibrant candidates. This trend may have been strengthened by social media and the amount of selfies people take. Whatever the cause, cosmetic procedures are becoming more accepted, even among the younger generations, and men are more open to talking about topics such as beauty, self-care, and cosmetic procedures than ever before.
