With technology only growing more advanced and our society becoming increasingly digitalized, the impact that social media has on the beauty industry cannot be denied. These days, as digital culture keeps growing and beauty standards change, the demand for cosmetic surgery procedures evolves as well.

The prevalence of social media in our digital age has catapulted the desire for people to improve their appearance with the help of cosmetic procedures. Moreover, the modern advancements in the world of cosmetic surgery are making it easier now more than ever for people to address any concerns and improve their appearances. In this article, we go over the top 4 most popular plastic surgery trends of 2022!

1. Double eyelid surgery

Because the extra fold can make the eye appear brighter and larger, double eyelids are seen to be beautiful. However, the unfortunate truth is that many people were not born with double eyelids. Instead of having the hassle of putting on double eyelid tape, many are opting for double eyelid surgery – a popular plastic surgery procedure that creates a double eyelid crease for a more youthful look.

Generally, there are two types of double eyelid surgery – incisional surgery and non-incisional surgery (stitching). For incisional surgery, an incision is made on the skin of the eyelid. The inner eyelid muscle is then permanently joined to the eyelid skin to form a double eyelid crease. As for non-incisional surgery (stitching), sutures are placed in the eyelid to create an attachment between the inner eyelid muscle and skin to form a crease.

For those who have droopy eyelids, you may consider combining the incisional double eyelid surgery with our ptosis repair treatment for an enhanced look.

2. Rhinoplasty

A rhinoplasty, sometimes known as a nose job, reshapes the nose to balance it with the rest of the face. For a more appealing look, individuals may opt to have the nose’s tip trimmed or to reduce the size of the nose. After surgery, some slight swelling and bruising may be noticeable, but it should go away after a couple of weeks.

There are two primary rhinoplasty techniques. All incisions are made within the nostrils during a closed rhinoplasty, and modifications are done through these incisions. This is typically used for smaller treatments since it allows for a quicker recovery and leaves no visible scars after surgery. In an open rhinoplasty, the surgeon will make an incision at the base of the columella to take the skin of the nose off, revealing the whole bone and cartilage structure beneath. This is typically recommended for more complex situations since it enables the surgeon to make more exact and precise modifications.

3. Breast augmentations

An increasing number of women from various walks of life are opting to receive breast implants — whether it is to increase the volume and size of the breasts, correct asymmetrical breasts, or reconstruct the breasts following a mastectomy.

Breast implants may be inserted in 3 main ways – under the muscle, above the muscle or through the armpit. The round and teardrop forms are the two most popular breast implant shapes. Ultimately, your personal goals, body type, and breast form/shape will all influence the choice of implant shape that will suit you best.

4. Abdominoplasty

Abdominoplasty, sometimes referred to as a tummy tuck surgery, involves removing extra skin and tightening the abdomen to reshape an individual’s core. Generally, individuals who have lost a substantial amount of weight or women who have just given birth are the ideal candidates for this procedure.

During the procedure, the skin flap is lifted from the abdominal wall by an incision that is made slightly above the pelvic line. The surgeon makes any required adjustments to the muscle groups of the rectus abdominis and the fascia gap. The surgeon will then gently cut away any extra skin before sealing the incision after pulling the skin flap over the constricted abdomen.

The majority of patients may return to their regular routines in two to three weeks, although they might need to put restrictions on their physical activity for longer. For more information on the post-abdominoplasty recovery process, do not forget to check out our article!
