Plastic Surgery Trends: 2018

March 2nd, 2018

Three months in and we’re already in the full swing of things in 2018. Last year we saw rhinoplasty, facelifts and tummy tucks among the most requested plastic surgeries, but this year the trends are set to change. Let’s take a look at what 2018 has in store.

 

Plastic Surgery Trends for Women

Thighlighting

Making the legs appear longer, leaner and lovelier will be a big trend, as celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Taylor Swift and Kendall Jenner continue to grow our leg envy. Thighlighting includes thigh lifts, contoured inner and outer thighs, liposuction and calf implants, as well as thigh gaps.

 

Better Botox

Surgeons abroad claim to be working on an already impressive Botox formula, that will beat wrinkles and potentially stop future ones from forming. We can’t wait to see the results.

 

Natural-looking Breasts

Let’s face it, a bigger chest is not always best. Breast implants that seem to better fit in with body shape, weight and height will be favoured over bigger ones to create a more believable look.

Careers

It’s predicted that more women will opt for plastic surgery courses and enter the cosmetic surgery industry. Here come the girls.

 

Plastic Surgery Trends for Men

Breast Reduction

As man boobs can negatively impact male self-esteem, men will look to reduce them using liposuction, or in more severe cases, tissue excision.

 

Eye-lid Surgery

As the eyes are the first part of the face to show aging due to bags, hooded upper lids or sagging, eye-lid surgery will continually grow in popularity. The procedure can make the eyes look younger, and by extension, the face.

 

Daddy Makeovers

Men will be opting to beautify themselves through a combination of surgeries such as liposuction, tummy tucks and breast reductions, providing a quicker and more effective result than going to the gym.

 

Our Top Trend: More Choice of Services for Transgender Patients

With more open conversations circulating about gender and Caitlyn Jenner showing us how transgender surgery can reveal who we know we are through her eye-opening documentary and Vanity Fair feature, transgender surgery is said to steadily grow this year. And quite frankly, we think that’s wonderful.

 

Will these trends occur? Only time will tell.
