Plastic surgery trends for 2021

The global COVID pandemic has caused one of the most severe social and economic catastrophes modern civilization has experienced.

All industries are experiencing a significant reduction in turnover, with the plastic surgery practice being no exception.

Nonetheless, people still desire and deserve to look their best, perhaps more so in times of stress and panic.

With this in mind, there are several plastic surgery trends we can expect to see occur during 2021.

1)   Likely a decrease in significant surgeries

The financial cost of extensive plastic surgeries, such as mommy makeovers, breast augmentation and Brazilian butt lifts will likely make people less inclined to opt for these procedures, as families and couples everywhere need to batten down the spending hatches.

Furthermore, significant surgeries such as these incur recovery and downtime, during which the body’s immune system is suppressed and unable to fight infection as efficiently as it would typically be.   Though it may still be a viable option for some, major plastic surgery is often being postponed.

2)   More facial procedures

Facial cosmetic surgeries, such as eyelid lifts, earlobe repair, facial fat transfer, lip lifts or neck lifts, will likely remain stable, if not slightly increase.

This is because of their relatively lower costs when compared to the more extensive surgeries listed above.

These procedures can be performed safely, even though they require patients to remove their face masks.

Furthermore, the added benefit of having smaller amounts of downtime means patients can recover safely in the knowledge that their immune systems won’t be compromised for long.

3)   More skincare procedures

Wearing masks everywhere can have negative impacts on people’s skin if proper precautions are not followed. Regular cleaning of the skin, exfoliation, and regularly changing masks are crucial to avoid acne build-ups and other mask-related skin issues.

If patients are struggling with skin and mask hygiene, chemical peels, or IPL photo facials offer solutions to encourage healthy, new skin cell growth.

4)   A growth in injectables, fillers, and body contouring

We expect to see an increase in the number of people seeking lip fillers, BOTOX® injections to eliminate wrinkles, dermal fillers to recontour facial features, and laser liposuction as a way of rewarding themselves for staying positive and motivated during these challenging times.

All these procedures incur zero downtime, are relatively affordable, and produce exquisite results almost overnight.

If people become demotivated with their at-home workouts, Coolsculpting offers a fantastic opportunity to realize the body you desire and encourage you to keep up the hard work at home to get the body of your dreams, even in lockdown or social distancing circumstances.
