What Are the Latest Trends in Facial Reshaping Surgery?
Don’t expect the demand for facial reshaping surgery to slow down any time soon. In fact, there are several trends that could transform facial reshaping surgery in 2018 and beyond, and these trends include:
- Selfie Awareness
A recent American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) survey showed 42% of AAFPRS members said they are seeing people who request facial plastic surgery so they can look better on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social networks. As more people strive to enhance their facial appearance for selfies, the push for non-invasive facial plastic surgeries may increase accordingly.
There is no shortage of non-surgical facial reshaping treatments available. Botox, for example, is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that temporarily reduces fine lines, wrinkles and furrows caused by excessive muscle movements in the face. Dermal fillers like Voluma, Belotero and Sculptra help individuals rejuvenate their facial appearance, too.
- Millennial ‘Man’-tenance
More men than ever before are choosing facial reshaping surgery. In an AAFPRS survey, 31% of men said they are “extremely likely” to consider a non-surgical or surgical facial reshaping treatment. Among these men, 58% were between the ages of 25 and 34 years old, and 34% were between the ages of 18 and 24.
In addition to Botox, dermal fillers and other non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures, men can reap the benefits of various surgical treatments as well. For instance, male rhinoplasty helps men reshape their nose, resulting in an improved facial aesthetic. Other male facial reshaping surgeries like facelifts, neck lifts and chin augmentation frequently help men achieve a harmonious facial appearance.
- Non-Surgical Eyelid Lifts
Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, is commonly used to eliminate bags from the lower eyelids or excess skin from the upper eyelids. The procedure offers a safe, effective option for those who want to treat volume loss in and around the eyes. Yet many people would prefer to avoid going under the knife as part of an eyelid lift.
Non-surgical eyelid procedures are now available that enable individuals to use injectable treatments to reduce hollowness of the lower eyes and laxity of the upper eyes. Injectable treatments like Restylane and Juvederm provide proven alternatives to traditional eyelid surgery. Going forward, these treatments may help people revitalize the appearance of their eyes without surgery.
Clearly, facial reshaping surgery is a promising field that continues to evolve. For those who are considering facial reshaping treatments, it is important to select a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon who keeps pace with the latest facial reshaping surgery trends.
