Summertime means a resurgence of gym memberships from New Year’s resolutions gone rogue, but some are skipping the treadmill and heading straight for the OR.
Plastic surgeons say the trend this summer for patients is to move towards a more natural and softer look through surgical procedures.
Injectables and conservative invasive procedures are dominating the industry now, as patients are favoring things like Botox around the temples to achieve a fullness to the face. Patients are also inquiring about procedures to give them a more curvy figure. Brazilian butt lifts are becoming more popular and have gained wide acclaim from patients.
The Mommy Makeover is also growing in popularity; women are taking strides to regain their pre-pregnancy figures through breast augmentation, tummy tucks and liposuction.
According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, both breasts augmentations and tummy tucks topped the list of procedures performed in 2011.
As always, doctors advise that anyone interested in a cosmetic procedure should consult with a board-certified specialist in the field before any surgery. Check out our Haute MD Rolodex to find the best surgeons in your area.
