Summertime is often a popular season for lip and face cosmetic surgeries. For men and women who are planning to undergo a lip or face procedure this summer, it helps to know summertime cosmetic surgery trends, too. Summertime cosmetic surgery trends to watch this summer include:
1. Botox Injections
Botox consistently ranks among the top non-invasive cosmetic procedures. It temporarily smooths fine lines and wrinkles caused by excessive muscle movements in the face. Botox is also performed via a series of small, subcutaneous injections, making it a simple procedure that requires only minutes to complete.
Botox treatments may be ideal for people who want to address crow’s feet, bunny lines and other visible signs of aging in the face. A typical Botox treatment delivers results that last about four months – roughly the length of the entire summer. Plus, the side effects associated with Botox injections are generally minimal, and there is little to no downtime after a Botox procedure.
2. Juvederm Lip Fillers
Juvederm injectable lip fillers have been shown to improve lip volume and fullness. They are intended for people dealing with thin lips, as well as individuals who are struggling with vertical lip lines.
This summer, individuals who want to achieve beautiful, natural-looking lips may want to undergo Juvederm treatments. Juvederm injections offer terrific alternatives to traditional cosmetic surgeries. They also contain Lidocaine, a local anesthetic that makes a Juvederm procedure virtually pain-free.
Juvederm patients usually won’t have to wait long before they see the results of their treatments, either. In fact, Juvederm treatment results often become visible within about 24 hours of a procedure. The results of a Juvederm procedure may last up to 18 months as well.
3. Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing involves the use of DOT Deka laser treatments to correct facial wrinkles, scars, sun-damaged skin and other skin issues. It resurfaces the skin on the face and neck, ensuring an individual can improve skin tone and pigmentation.
Laser skin resurfacing is available to individuals dealing with virtually any dermatological condition. It is commonly used to treat mild signs of aging like acne scars and facial lines and wrinkles. In some instances, laser skin resurfacing treats melasma (brown patches on the face), sunspots and hyperpigmentation (dark spots), too.
4. Custom Facelift Surgery
The days of a traditional facelift are coming to an end. Now, an individual can receive a custom facelift surgery to ensure his or her facial features appear in harmony with one another.
A custom facelift surgery delivers long-lasting results. Prior to a facelift procedure, an individual will meet with a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon who learns about his or her treatment goals. Then, this individual and his or her facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon can work together to accomplish the best-possible facelift surgery results.
When it comes to summertime facelift surgery, it is paramount to work with an expert facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon. That way, an individual can get the support that he or she needs to achieve a natural-looking facial appearance in which the nose, chin, cheeks and other facial features perfectly complement each other.
5. Facial Fat Grafting
Facial fat grafting helps an individual restore a youthful facial appearance. With facial fat grafting, fat is transferred into a patient’s face; this fat comes from a patient’s abdomen, flanks, hips or other parts of the body. The procedure involves harvesting fat via a small incision in a patient’s abdomen or legs. Next, the fat is cleansed, concentrated and injected into a patient’s face, resulting in a rejuvenated facial appearance.
Facial fat grafting allows a patient to simultaneously treat volume loss in the mid-face and thinning lips. It usually takes several months to recover from a facial fat grafting procedure. As a result, individuals who are eligible for time off from work or school and want to rejuvenate their facial appearance may want to undergo this procedure in summertime.
