Top Plastic Surgery in 2024

New cosmetic surgery procedures have seen a steady rise in recent years and this trend will surely continue into 2024. Advancements in technology have paved the way for procedures that are more efficient, safer, and have better outcomes. From facial contouring procedures like chin implants and jawline sculpting to non-surgical treatments like Botox or fillers, there is something to fit everyone's needs. Customization of the results allows people to achieve a look that works best for them.

Many plastic surgeons are continuing to move away from one-size-fits-all operations as they embrace unique surgery trends tailored to individual needs. The trend towards natural-looking results is also in full force, allowing individuals to maintain a fresh appearance without drastically changing their underlying facial structure.

Less "Done," More Natural Aesthetics

Beauty and appearance are important to many individuals, but how people seek aesthetic perfection has drastically changed over the years. Instead of pursuing radical, drastic changes to their face and body, today’s generation is turning towards options that complement their unique features. This shift away from traditional approaches has led to a boom in natural-looking plastic surgery and minimally invasive and non-surgical aesthetic treatments. Cutting-edge solutions allow patients to achieve impressive results without extensive downtime or results that scream plastic surgery.

The appeal of these modern treatments lies in how they subtly contour and accentuate a person’s natural beauty instead of completely changing it. The overall goal is not just to reduce wrinkles or sagging skin but also to “age better” by preventing the deterioration associated with aging more gracefully.

Board-certified plastic surgeons have been invaluable during this evolution of aesthetic procedures, providing both technical expertise and creative input when helping clients tailor their treatments according to their needs. As technology advances further still, aesthetic medicine will continue to provide individualized solutions tailor-made for each individual’s distinctive features and lifestyle requirements.

 Why Do Men and Women Have Plastic Surgery?

Cosmetic surgery has become increasingly common in recent years, which can be attributed to the many benefits it offers to both men and women. Plastic surgery procedures can help people improve their physical appearance and address specific concerns that may inhibit their body confidence.

Various factors, including the aging process, social media influence, personal satisfaction, and medical considerations, contribute to the demand for cosmetic procedures. As the field of cosmetic surgery advances, new and innovative procedures are being developed to cater to the diverse preferences and needs of patients.

Additionally, cosmetic surgery can give individuals the opportunity to feel more at ease and confident in their skin. This feeling of empowerment can then have a positive ripple effect on various areas of one’s life, such as personal relationships and career advancement.

Trends You'll Want To Watch in 2024

Botox Is Trending Younger

The beauty and aesthetics industry has seen a steady rise in the past two decades with developments in both surgical and non-surgical treatments like Botox and dermal fillers. Popularized by influencers on TikTok and Instagram, the latest advancements have created exciting opportunities for women and men to express their individuality through subtle enhancements of their natural appearance. Aesthetic procedures such as “botox lip flips” and “baby botox” are becoming increasingly popular treatment options for those seeking an instant youthful makeover with minimal downtime.

Using just a few strategic Botox injections, plastic surgeons and injectors can turn up the edges of the lips, known as a “botox lip flip,” creating a fuller-looking pout without injecting any fillers. Baby Botox is another rapidly growing trend that reduces muscle movement resulting in reduced wrinkles and added definition to the face features. As an ever-evolving field, advancements in aesthetics will continue to change our approaches towards enhancing our personal beauty.

Chin Augmentation For Profile Balancing

Self-promotion, personal branding, and social media in general have added attention to the individual's facial profile. I've noticed a significant uptick in men and women who desire profile balancing and enhancement. There are a few ways to go about creating a natural profile and jawline: dermal fillers, fat, and a chin implant. 

The benefits of chin augmentation can range from subtle changes that give a person a softer overall look, to drastic ones that yield noticeable results. Additionally, some people also find psychological benefits in improving their facial features related to self-confidence and satisfaction with one's appearance. I believe we'll continue to see a surge in chin augmentation in 2024.

Skin Smoothing and Retexturing

Constant advancement in skin resurfacing technologies, such as fractional laser treatments like Sciton Joule and radiofrequency devices like Sofwave, have made these procedures more effective, with reduced downtime and side effects to appeal to women and men with active lifestyles who typically like to avoid rejuvenation with downtime. Both men and women are opting for skin resurfacing treatments to minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and signs of photoaging like brown spots and slight skin laxity.

Skin lasers can stimulate collagen production while smoothing the skin. Concerns like superficial acne scarring can also be addressed, giving patients multi-fold benefits.

As we move into 2024, we’ll also continue to see a steady rise in procedures like microneedling with platelet rich plasma (PRP). Tiny needles are used to superficially penetrate the skin and your own platelets are used to provide growth factors to regenerate new refreshed skin. Microneedling can be done superficially or deeper for a more aggressive treatment.

"Tox Fatigue" Ushers in Eyelid
and Brow Lifts 

We know that nothing stops the aging process. At some point, multiple Botox injections aren't going to combat gravity quite like plastic surgery. When Botox begins to lose its effectiveness, and individuals find that their desired results in reducing wrinkles and fine lines are not being adequately achieved, they may explore other options, including surgical procedures like eyelid lifts (blepharoplasty) or brow lifts (forehead lift).

Blepharoplasty addresses sagging or drooping eyelids, excess skin, and fatty deposits around the eyes. It can rejuvenate the upper and/or lower eyelids, creating a more youthful and alert appearance. During the procedure, excess skin, and fat are removed, and the underlying muscles may be tightened. The incisions are strategically placed to minimize visible scarring.

Forehead Lift is designed to lift and reshape the forehead and brow area, reducing sagging skin and deep lines. It can create a more refreshed and lifted appearance. Brow lift techniques vary, but they generally involve lifting and repositioning the underlying tissues, and sometimes, the removal of excess skin. The procedure can be performed using different approaches, including traditional, endoscopic, or temporal methods.

*it should be noted that Botox can continue to be used with surgical intervention like a brow lift or blepharoplasty.

The "Light Lift" Facelift For Young 40s

Historically, facelifts were only suited for those aged 50+ to address sagging skin. Innovations in technique and technologies now serve women and men who want "just a little lift."

Traditional facelifts typically involve excess skin removal and intense tightening of the SMAS and platysma bands at the neck. In younger patients, the amount of excess skin that needs to be removed is usually much less than it would be when doing a traditional facelift.

While there are some risks associated with any kind of surgical procedure, it is an increasingly popular option for those looking to turn back time on their aging faces without undergoing a full-scale lift. With this facelift lite approach, clients can enjoy results that look natural yet refreshed while minimizing any downtime and recovery time after surgery.

FaceTite, a non-surgical alternative to a light facelift, is gaining popularity among men and women aged 40-45 seeking rejuvenation without the downtime of traditional surgical procedures. This innovative treatment utilizes radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis to tighten loose skin, contour facial features, and stimulate collagen production. Ideal for individuals experiencing mild to moderate sagging or laxity in the lower face and neck, FaceTite offers a minimally invasive solution with impressive results. The procedure involves the insertion of a small, handheld device beneath the skin, delivering controlled thermal energy to target areas. As collagen production is stimulated, patients will see gradual improvements in skin tightness and texture, achieving a more youthful appearance without the need for surgery.

FaceTite is becoming a preferred choice for those in their early 40s, allowing them to address aging concerns with efficiency and minimal disruption to their busy lifestyles.

The Lift & Fill Facelift

For women and men seeking facelift rejuvenation, trends are shifting towards a global facial rejuvenation with multi-procedures dialed in to enhance natural-looking and younger-looking results. One way we accomplish this is with the modernized Lift and Fill Facelift. The Lift & Fill not only repositions skin and facial tissue (SMAS + deep plane) but also involves injecting micro, nano, and fracto fat in areas to fill volume-depleted areas. The results are softer and more natural, not a pulled-too-tight or gaunt facelift result.

Natural-Looking Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation has seen a shift towards natural yet shapelier breasts is taking center stage. Many women now prioritize achieving a more natural look, opting for subtle enhancements that highlight breast contour and silhouette without appearing overly enhanced or artificial. This departure from several-cup size increases (think A cup to D cup) is reflected in the increasing popularity of breast augmentations. Rather than seeking significant volume, women are now inclined towards a touch more fullness that complements their natural proportions.

The trend aligns with a desire for breasts that enhance femininity without hindering active lifestyles, such as running and working out. The selection of breast implant profiles, including low and low-plus, caters to this trend, offering a more modest increase in volume while maintaining a natural appearance. Mini breast augmentations often involve placing implants under the muscle, providing additional coverage, reducing rippling, and ensuring a smoother upper pole transition. For those leading active lives, the option of subfascial breast augmentation addresses concerns about implant movement during chest muscle contraction, offering a solution that minimizes animation deformity. 

Modern Lipo-Sculpting 360

The 90s ushered in the era of liposuction, where more and more individuals began opting for this cosmetic body modification procedure. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, while there were only 3,500 liposuction procedures performed in 1985, a decade later saw an incredible surge to over 180,000. By 2005, there was an even greater explosion of fat-removal procedures with over 500,000 procedures performed that year alone.

The modern liposuction techniques being utilized today are incredibly precise and effective. This is due to the new technologies that have been developed to improve accuracy, sculpt better, and reduce discomfort and downtime for those undergoing these treatments. Modern techniques have also added something called “stacking energy” to help tighten skin and enhance results.

Liposculpting allows for precise and targeted fat removal, enabling plastic surgeons to sculpt and contour specific areas of the body. This precision is particularly beneficial for body-conscious individuals who struggle with localized fat deposits that do not respond to diet and exercise. Smaller cannulas allow surgeons to hone in on micro-sculpting areas like the neck, inner thighs, love handles, knees, and bra bulge. Chest and abdominal etching can also be achieved with a hi-def finish, thanks to modern technology.

Plastic surgeons can address multiple areas in tandem with other procedures like a tummy tuck or male chest reduction, creating a more comprehensive and harmonious result that aligns with the patient's desired body shape.
