Springtime is here, and many individuals are gearing up for beach season. Whether they're hitting the gym, going on a diet or paying a visit to a plastic surgeon – one thing's for sure, people want to look their best.
New York-based plastic surgeons recently predicted what procedures they expect to be the most popular this spring. They predict that Mommy Makeovers (which includes liposuction, a tummy tuck and breast lift or augmentation) laser rejuvenation and dermal filler injectables will be the top three.
"The Mommy Makeover is popular among women because it addresses the breasts and the abdomen which are both common areas of concern for women who have had children," said a New York-based plastic surgeon. "Additionally, we are able to tailor the procedure to fit each individual’s needs, and patients can combine multiple procedures into one surgery which increases the popularity of the Mommy Makeover."
Laser rejuvenation, which is minimally invasive and does not require a lot of recovery time, will also be popular, the doctors project. This procedure targets wrinkles, scars, acne, rosacea, pigmentation problems, skin tone and vascular conditions. Finally, dermal fillers are in high demand, as they can help the patient appear younger by making certain places on the face fuller and plumper – and it less invasive.
Before choosing to go under the knife for any surgery, including a tummy tuck procedure, patients should first do some research to find out if they are a good candidate. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, those who have excess skin around their abdomen due to pregnancy, aging, significant fluctuations in weight and prior surgery are the most eligible for the procedure.
