The popularity of cosmetic surgeries can vary over time and geographic regions. In 2022, some of the most popular cosmetic surgeries worldwide were:
Breast Augmentation (Augmentation Mammoplasty):
- Insertion of implants to enlarge breast size and enhance shape. This remains one of the most widespread plastic surgical procedures.
- Removal of excess fat from specific areas of the body using a suction device. Liposuction is popular for shaping the body and eliminating localized fat deposits.
Nose Correction (Rhinoplasty):
- Surgical correction of the nose’s shape or size to improve aesthetics or address functional issues such as breathing difficulties.
- Injection of botulinum toxin to reduce wrinkles and fine lines by temporarily paralyzing muscles. This is a non-surgical method that has become highly popular.
- Tightening of facial skin to reduce wrinkles and achieve a more youthful appearance. Facelifts can be combined with other procedures like eyelid surgery.
Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty):
- Removal of excess skin or fat around the eye area to enhance the appearance of the eyelids.
Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck):
- Removal of excess skin and fat from the abdomen, often combined with tightening of the abdominal muscles to achieve a more toned midsection.
Breast Reduction (Reduction Mammoplasty):
- Reduction of breast size by removing excess tissue and tightening the skin.
Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL):
- Transfer of fat from other parts of the body to the buttocks to create a fuller and lifted appearance.
- Use of fillers like hyaluronic acid to enlarge and shape the lips.
It is important to note that beauty standards and preferences vary, and the popularity of different procedures can change over time. Before deciding on a cosmetic surgery, it is crucial to consult with a qualified plastic surgeon to gain a full understanding of the procedure, risks, and expected results.
