Top of the List: Non-Surgical Procedures
Many people are looking for ways to get great results in the least-intrusive way possible. This makes non-surgical procedures particularly appealing.
A non-surgical procedure does not require an operation and may involve injectables or skin rejuvenation. Some examples of non-surgical procedures are BOTOX, lip fillers, injectable cosmetics, and laser and light therapy.
These minimally and non-invasive procedures may serve as a great introduction to cosmetic enhancements if you’ve never gone under the knife before. They can provide long-lasting results that are not permanent and can be altered as needed. Learn more about your non-surgical options in this blog.
The Rise of Facelifts
Facelifts are definitely making a comeback in the new year. Harper’s Bazaar shares that “liquid facelifts” in particular are growing in popularity, stating, “Liquid facelifts involve injecting dermal fillers into the skin to plump up the skin. It differs from a surgical facelift in that it doesn’t involve cutting into the skin.”
This trend aligns with the ever-growing preference for procedures that provide natural-looking results and minimal to zero downtime.
With so many public figures becoming more vocal about their own plastic surgery, facelifts are likely to continue trending up in 2022. Whether you’re interested in a “liquid facelift” or the more permanent route of traditional surgery, Dr. Stallworth can help you find the look you want.
Focus on the Lips
Yes, lip fillers are here to stay. In its 2022 Beauty Trend Forecast Report, Yelp referenced a staggering 107% increase in internet searches for “lip flips” (a procedure used to plump the lips that became popular on TikTok).
Over the past couple of years, lip-enhancing methods have established a new trend in the beauty market. Plumping lip fillers have been a hit, and now other procedures such as lip blushing are beginning to grow in popularity as well. Before you decide to make changes to your lips, be sure to read our blog on 5 Things to Know Before Getting Lip Fillers.
The Rhinoplasty Boom
In 2021, rhinoplasties beat breast augmentations as the most-performed plastic surgery, and this trend is expected to continue in 2022.
Why the increase in popularity? The short answer: social media. Over the last year, TikTok especially has helped shape cosmetic surgery trends. On TikTok, #plasticsurgery alone has over 10.7 billion views, with users often showcasing procedures they’ve undergone with dramatic before and after videos.
