In 2015, there were many new and surprising trends in plastic surgery. There was a stark decrease in the number of traditionally popular procedures such as breast augmentation. Instead, many people are turning to non-invasive laser procedures to change their looks rather than the traditional scalpel method. Here are a few of the most popular plastic surgery trends in 2015.
Do you ever wish that you could take a bit of fat from one area of your body and put it somewhere else? Now you can! Fat transfer has gained in popularity this year as more and more people are choosing to shape and mold their bodies to be exactly what they want them to be. Fat transfer consists of taking fat from areas where it is in excess (like the outer thigh) and transferring it to areas that need filling out such as the face, breasts, or buttocks. It is a fast way to change the silhouette of your body completely.
One of the most surprising trends of last year was the big increase in labiaplasty. Labiaplasty is the process of altering the reshaping the labia and surrounding folds. Many women after childbirth feel that their most private areas don’t quite look the same. They may become self-conscious and unable to feel comfortable during intimate moments. Labiaplasty can restore confidence and comfort in women with large or deformed labium.
Another favorite in 2015 were fillers for the face. Fillers can help restore fullness in the face, reducing wrinkles and retaining a youthful appearance. As you get older, you begin to lose fat in your face. You also start to lose elasticity in your skin. This can result in crow’s feet and smile lines. Fillers are a fast and non-invasive way to soften your face and reduce the signs of aging. They are also very affordable when compared to more invasive methods.
