Reports are coming in from overseas that the top trends in cosmetic surgery for 2017 will include a skyrocketing demand for bigger butts, smaller breasts, and quicker recovery times. Plastic surgeons had already begun to see an increased demand for Brazilian butt lifts, thanks to the “Kardashian Effect,” but clearly, this is a trend that is only expected to pick up steam. Of course, just because a procedure is considered to be trendy doesn’t make it the best choice for every patient. If you’re concerned about your appearance, it’s advisable to seek a personal consult with an experienced plastic surgeon who speaks with you – not at you – in reaching a decision about which cosmetic procedure with help you reach your goals.
Is smaller better?
After years of dominating the list of most requested plastic surgeries, it’s possible that breast augmentation might start to decline in favor of breast reduction. Plastic surgeons say that the increased requests for breast reductions and reductions in nipple sizes has been fueled by the trend toward favoring athletic builds. Celebrities like Ellie Goulding and the ever-popular Taylor Swift epitomize the long, lean look of the athlete that many women wish to emulate.
Another possible influence in this trend is the growing popularity of hardcore athletic training programs like CrossFit, which has seen scores of women embrace weightlifting.
Lifting the derriere
The growing demand for a bigger, uplifted butt isn’t going away any time soon. This type of derriere has been made popular by the likes of Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez. A more voluptuous bottom can be achieved with buttock implants or with autologous fat grafting. Fat grafting involves injecting the patient’s own fat (taken from elsewhere in the body) back into the buttocks to shape the silhouette.
Walk-in/walk-out cosmetic enhancements
In 2017, plastic surgeons can expect to see a rise in the requests for “lunchtime enhancements.” People who are juggling demands at work with family obligations often lack the time to take a few weeks off to recover from a major procedure. The solution is minimally invasive procedures that require a shorter recovery time and far less time spent in the office, allowing patients to return to the comfort of their own homes more quickly.
Additionally, plastic surgeons have been seeing an increase in the number of patients who request local anesthetics for procedures instead of general anesthesia, which induces unconsciousness. Local anesthesia is considered safer for patients, since some patients may experience adverse reactions to general anesthesia. Facelifts and certain types of breast procedures are among those that have been performed under local anesthesia more frequently.
