The Most Popular Plastic Surgery Procedure for 2014

The new year is bringing about new trends, a few of which involve cosmetic and plastic surgery. While non-surgical cosmetic procedures are seeing the biggest boom, several surgeries are also getting a spike in popularity. Here is a look at seven of the most trendy plastic surgery procedures for 2014.

Tummy Tucks

The tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, involves the removal of excess skin and fast and the tightening of the abdominal wall muscles. The result is a flatter, more toned midsection with fewer stretch marks. The procedure is especially popular among those who have had major weight loss and are wanting to remove the sagging, excess skin left behind. It is also very popular among women following pregnancy. In 2014 there is sure to be a continued spike in popularity for tummy tucks as people seek out that slimmer, more toned stomach.

Breast Surgery

From breast augmentation, to breast reduction and breast lift, breast surgery will continue to be one of the most popular surgeries in 2014. It’s no surprise since our society appears to be fascinated with breasts. And, according to Dr. Alan Dulin of American Institute for Plastic Surgery, advances in modern technology have helped the procedure become more mainstream. “Breast surgery is less complex than it was in the past and it can often be completed on an out-patient basis.”

Breast augmentation, which involves the enlargement of the breasts through implants, is easily the most popular of the three breast surgeries. However, that isn’t to say that the other two surgeries are not popular. Breast reduction is popular among women whose breast size causes them problems and by men who have developed breasts due to gynecomastia. Breast lift, on the other hand, is popular among those looking to boost their cleavage and counter the sagging of the breasts that often comes with age.

Labiaplasty

The popularity of labiaplasty is quickly picking up steam, particularly in the UK and the United States. This procedure involves altering the shape or size of the labia minora to improve the overall appearance of the vagina. The increasing popularity of this procedure is due in part to new techniques that help to reduce the risk of scarring. As the pursuit of the ‘designer vagina’ intensifies, 2014 will surely see an increase in labiaplasty procedures.

Laser Hair Removal

More than ever, men and women are recognizing the value of long-term reduction of unwanted hair. As such, laser hair removal is becoming more popular than ever. During the procedure, a laser is used to destroy hair follicles, stunting future hair growth. The procedure is non-surgical and anesthesia is not required. 2014 will be the year of laser hair removal, as it replaces other forms of hair removal such as electrolysis, waxing, and shaving.

Chin Implants

Chin implants can instantly strengthen the profile of your face, adding definition and balance. Chin implants are quickly joining face lifts as a top procedure in the quest for achieving a youthful look. In 2013, old x-rays revealed that Marilyn Monroe herself received a chin implant. It is more than likely that the popularity of chin implants will continue to soar into 2014.

Lipotripsy

Lipotripsy is a non-surgical procedure used to reduce fat and cellulite and to improve skin elasticity in the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, and the arms. It works using radial wave therapy, which boosts the permeability of fat cells and improves the skin’s blood circulation. The novelty of this treatment combined with its growing reputation as one of the most effective methods of removing cellulite make lipotripsy a winner in 2014.
