More people are choosing cosmetic surgery than ever before between the increasing variety of procedures available and the growing cultural acceptance of plastic surgery. While certain procedures like breast augmentation, and rhinoplasty have maintained their popularity for decades, newer procedures are rapidly growing in popularity.
As beauty standards are ever-changing, it’s important to be aware of aesthetic trends, desired popular looks, and external factors affecting how people view themselves and how they want to look. With the rapid development of surgical technologies, cosmetic surgery is more accessible and diverse than ever. Today, let’s discuss cosmetic surgery trends for 2023.
What Was the Most Popular Surgery in 2022?
Rhinoplasty (nose surgery) was the most popular cosmetic procedure for years, but in 2022, breast reduction surgery has come out at #1.
With constantly changing beauty trends (coming out of Hollywood) and the self-reflection we all did during the COVID pandemic, both men and women seek cosmetic procedures to reduce the signs of aging and are opting for procedures that make them happy instead of staying on-trend.
Therefore, breast reduction surgery makes sense as a top procedure, as it relieves pain in the back, neck, and shoulders, increase your ability to take part in physical activities, helps clothes fit better, and promotes a positive self-image so you can feel confident.
Favorite Plastic Surgery Procedures in 2023
I always strive to provide optimal results to people who have struggled with regions of their body for a long time because of pain or self-esteem issues. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, I want to ensure your goals are realistic and they benefit your self-confidence.
Based on past trends and patterns for cosmetic procedures I have made predictions that will be popular in 2023. These predictions are based on my research, along with my extensive surgical expertise. In 2023, there will be an even demand for both body and face procedures.
Many people gained weight during the pandemic, as gyms closed and cooking at home became more popular. As people continue fighting off the extra pounds, many seek liposuction and tummy tucks to achieve their ideal body. These are safe, permanent ways to remove and keep the fat off while improving appearance and restoring self confidence.
Breast augmentation remains the most popular cosmetic procedure performed in North America. A lot of people seek out breast augmentation after a mastectomy, after pregnancy, after rapid weight loss or gain, to correct asymmetrical breasts, or increase the size and volume of their breasts.
This procedure is highly customizable, and different types of implants and enlargement procedure options are readily available. This customizability means more and more people will seek out breast augmentation procedures in 2023.
The past two years were pivotal for facial plastic surgery – predominantly for rhinoplasties, eyelid surgeries, and facelifts. With the rise of lip and cheek injections, injectables and dermal fillers remain one of the most sought-after cosmetic treatments to rejuvenate the skin and improve the appearance of thinner lips. The face will always be popular as it’s one of the first things you notice, and judge, about someone.
Popular Plastic Surgery Procedures for Women
“Mommy makeovers” – a full makeover involving many customizable procedures that can reduce fat gained from pregnancy, wrinkles from aging/stress, and lifts to create a rejuvenated, youthful appearance. A benefit to Mommy Makeovers and what makes them increasingly popular is they tend to consist of multiple procedures that occur all at once, thus limiting patients to one recovery time and a new look in less time. Procedures include breast augmentation, breast reduction, liposuction, tummy tuck, buttock augmentation, arm/thigh lift and procedures focused on fat reduction and skin tightening.
Liposuction – is also as standard as breast augmentation, as women especially have difficulty getting rid of stubborn pockets of fat in their abdomen, thighs, arms, and buttocks. This long proven body scultping procedure continues to be a go to procedure for women looking to find their perfect body shape and look.
Blepharoplasty – called “eyelid” surgery, has become the second most popular surgical facial procedure. As women age, they desire to remove excess skin and fat above the eyelid to look more awake and youthful. Eyes are one of the first things we see when we meet or look at someone, and erasing those years through Blepharoplasty remains a top choice for woman looking to roll back the years and their aging effects.
Popular Plastic Surgery Procedures for Men
More men are seeking plastic surgery every year to achieve self-confidence.
Gynecomastia correction – this is the reduction of breast tissue in males achieves a smoother, more masculine chest. Male breast reduction has become extremely popular in the last few years and will become even more prevalent in 2023 as the focus on looking fit and younger takes over aethetic trends. Men no longer wish to have the Dad bod of fathers and grandfathers. A slim, chiseled chest is sexy and in demand.
Liposuction – no longer solely a female majority procedure, Liposuction is quickly becoming the most popular plastic surgery procedure for men and will continue to trend up in 2023. Male liposuction focuses on removing stubborn fat from the lower abdomen and sides, as well as chests, backs, and shoulders, achieving a sculpted and toned physique they’re proud of.
