A lot has changed, but even in these unprecedented times, public interest in aesthetic and cosmetic surgery, as shown by Google trends, is increasing. Plastic surgeons have seen a huge demand in telemedicine consultations, and, with the reopening of their offices, many more people continue to show interest in specific surgeries.

According to a survey by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons(ASPS), some of the most sought-after procedures include injectables, breast augmentation, and liposuction.

Top Cosmetic Non-invasive Procedures

Minimally invasive facial rejuvenation procedures aren’t showing signs of slowing down in 2020. On the contrary, many patients are taking advantage of the downtime—with working from home and wearing masks—to have fillers, BOTOX® Cosmetic, and non-invasive body contouring procedures performed without worrying about showing up to the office/public with temporary swelling or bruising.

Many individuals are taking this time to focus on self-care and makeup-free skin that glows. This explains why there is increasing interest in skincare and an overall healthier, more radiant appearance.

Injectables enhance your facial features by removing wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of skin laxity, and lip fillers are popular tools for creating fuller lips. The use of high-tech lasers to tighten and improve the firmness of the skin by stimulating collagen formation is also on the rise.

Treatments like BOTOX® Cosmetic, injectable fillers, chemical peels, laser treatments, including laser hair removal, and other skin-tightening procedures continue to skyrocket as patients seek non-invasive treatments to delay the need for more aggressive surgical procedures, such as facelift surgery and eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty)

With the advancements in techniques and products, plastic surgeons can individualize treatments to what each patient needs.

Top Cosmetic Surgical Procedures

Patients are also taking advantage of the extended time at home to have surgical transformations done since there is enough time to recuperate.

Breast augmentation with implants, liposuction techniques, breast lift surgery, and tummy tuck surgery are some of the most asked-for invasive treatments, according to the ASPS survey. 

These procedures allow women and men to improve their body contours now so that they will be healed and ready to go by the time more restrictions are lifted, and life starts to return to a more normal pace.

Look Your Best With a Cosmetic Procedure

A board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Mendieta will take your specific concerns and anatomy into account before coming up with the best treatment plan to achieve the look you want.
