Plastic Surgery Predictions for 2020
The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) has released its 2020 predictions detailing what plastic surgery trends are expected in the coming year. Insights include trends for surgical and non-invasive options, and a forecast that sees a new generation of patients entering the market in earnest.
With more than 2,600 members, the Aesthetic Society is recognized as the world’s leading organization devoted entirely to aesthetic plastic surgery and cosmetic medicine of the face and body.
Return of the Facelift
Patients are realizing that injectable treatments enhance but do not replace surgical treatments for the aging face. The most effective, most natural, most long-lasting and most cost-effective treatment for facial aging remains a well performed cheek and neck lift.
The Daddy-Do-Over is the male counterpart to the Mommy Makeover and is predicted to rise in 2020. More men are embracing aesthetic procedures as a way to boost their confidence and improve their physical appearance.
High-definition abdominal liposculpting (liposuction and body sculpting with fat transfer) will likely continue to rise in popularity. Procedures for gynecomastia (male breast development) have been on the rise over the last decade and will continue to increase.
Expect a windfall of innovation among non-invasive and minimally-invasive aesthetic treatments. With continued advancements in nonsurgical techniques, plastic surgeons are capable of improving patient outcomes. An expanding arsenal of non-invasive treatments and techniques allows aesthetic plastic surgeons to further individualize and optimize patient care.
Baby Botox refers to the use of targeted micro injections of a neurotoxin to achieve a more natural, subtle look. Compared to standard-size injections, Baby Botox lowers the risk of your features appearing to be frozen or weaken muscles that can later lead to drooping. The coming year will see an increase of people who want to look their best, not unnatural.
Gen Z Enters Aesthetic Market
Generation Z, people born in the late 1990s and early 2000s grew up as online natives and look to social media for beauty trends. Gen Z will seek out aesthetic procedures earlier in life as a preventative measure and in non-surgical ways.
