Plastic Surgeons spend many years gaining the professional skills and credentials to practice, but in today’s world there is far more to running a successful plastic surgery practice than artistry in plastic surgery. The latest trends include a wealth of non-surgical treatments for anti-aging, skin tightening, facial rejuvenation, and body sculpting technology. Many older patients will require surgical treatment to restore a more youthful look to face or body, but younger patients have a high interest in new technologies for face and body enhancements – particularly non-surgical, non-invasive treatments with little-to-no downtime.

Body Sculpting

Traditional plastic surgery involves excision or extraction of excess fat, repositioning and trimming saggy skin and tissue, and repairing and tightening muscle structure. New body sculpting technology makes it possible to reduce fatty areas without surgery, and these procedures are becoming ever more popular. People who have a genetic predisposition to fat deposits on thighs, legs, abdomen or love handles now have the ability to improve on nature with these procedures. CoolSculpting or ultrasound technology are both popular, and each treatment is effective for patients who want to reduce areas of unwanted fat but are not interested in undergoing liposuction or surgery. While these procedures are effective, some patients will be better served with liposuction or surgery. The ability to get them in the door for a consultation will often be associated with a plastic surgeon offering these non-surgical alternatives as an option.

Softer, More Natural-Looking
Breast Implants

As the breast implant industry advances, newer types of implants have been developed. These implants have a softer, more natural feel, and are less likely to rupture. Many people with breast implants will need to get them replaced and are interested in these recently developed silicone or saline implants. Not only are they more natural in feel, they are available in shapes that more closely mimic natural breast tissue and are less likely to lead to capsular contractual and other cosmetic problems.

PRP Treatments

One growing trend is the use of PRP as an anti-aging, revitalizing treatment. Often called a “vampire facelift,” this procedure is an effective regeneration technique. Skin becomes smoother, tighter, and suppler as the PRP stimulates the body to produce a higher volume of natural collagen and elastin. Many young patients are interested in this treatment to restore a youthful, rosy glow to the face after the early signs of aging have appeared. It is also an effective way to speed the healing process for patients who have undergone a plastic surgery procedure.

Lip Enhancement

Many women want lusher, plumper lips. Lip enhancement is a growing trend, and newer products on the market make it possible to create better lip definition, a cupid’s bow, or plump up thin or aging lips. With new products available that create a softer, more natural look, this procedure continues to gain in popularity for both young and older patients.

Natural Fat Transfer

Many patients have become interested in the concept of natural fat transfer for breast enhancement, facial rejuvenation, or a Brazilian butt lift. The idea of using your own fat can be appealing, as there is no risk of rejection. This procedure is particularly attractive for the dual effect, as fat must be extracted from another body area with an abundance of fat available to harvest. Not only is the patient’s body contour improved by extracting the fat, but the body is reshaped by injecting the healthy fat cells into areas of the body or face that need more volume.

Lip Enhancement

Lip enhancement is a growing trend, and newer products on the market make it possible to create better lip definition, a cupid’s bow, or plump up thin or aging lips.

Laser, Laser, Laser

Laser technology has come a long way, with newer systems making it easier for plastic surgeons to perform treatments with better results. A wide range of laser systems are available to plastic surgeons, each of which is appropriate for specific skin conditions. These can be used for skin resurfacing, reducing the appearance of age or sun spots, birthmarks, scars, rosacea, or to tighten loose skin. Providing a range of the most advanced laser treatments to your patients will attract more patients to your practice. They research these systems online, read beauty blogs and articles, and will ask for them by name. They know what to expect, although it is always necessary to ensure your patients have realistic expectations about results.

Microneedling

Microneedling for stimulating the skin to naturally restore and rejuvenate is gaining in popularity. Newer systems, including a pen delivery system with variable needle depths, now make it possible to treat even the finest lines around the eyes and lips effectively.

Light Therapy

The use of light therapy has become a trend for health-conscious patients. Various light frequency delivery systems are available to plastic surgeons who want to attract patients seeking more natural treatment.
