Plastic surgery is a continually evolving industry with new technologies and techniques emerging to make the procedures safer and minimally invasive. The industry witnesses an uptick in its popularity every year owing to the influence of celebrities and social media influencers who openly speak about undergoing makeovers to transform their face and/or body. According to Dr. Scottsdale, “The impact of social media, especially with the influx of the younger generation, who have turned content creators, is one of the major factors that have propelled the growth of plastic surgery.”
Dr. Carlos Mata aka Dr. Scottsdale is the founder of Natural Results Plastic Surgery in Scottsdale, Arizona, and one of the leading plastic surgeons. Sharing his insights on the latest trends in plastic surgery, he says, “We have witnessed a huge shift in the demand for both surgical and non-surgical facial treatments, which can be attributed to the surge in the number of hours spent on social media and zoom meetings, owing to the pandemic.” As per Dr.Scottsdale, the treatments that will attract more clients in 2021 are:
Preventative plastic surgery
From editing and using filters to enhance their images, women and men in their 20s and 30s have now transitioned towards preventative injectables and Botox treatments to prevent the onset of the signs of aging and maintain their youthful appearance. Lasers and chemical peels have also become popular with the young generation.
Body contouring procedures will continue to trend due to the latest innovation, and social media influencers. “Celebrities like Kim Kardashian or Kylie Jenner may have had plastic surgery. Their body types changed the vision of plastic surgery giving patients and future patients the ability to be more comfortable about the idea of having body contouring procedures” said Dr. Scottsdale. Also, due to the latest innovation, the new minimally invasive technologies reduce fat and tightens the skin working in a similar way to liposuction with no downtime (like EmSculpt, Evolve, Evoke, etc.)
The advancements in technology have transformed the way treatments are conducted. Guaranteeing more refined results, minimally invasive, and less recovery downtime; has led to increased demand for facial enhancements. The popular treatments include 3D facelifts, lip fillers, laser resurfacing, ultrasonic rhinoplasty, and eyelid corrections, among others.
The latest technique used to perform breast augmentation surgery has boosted the number of women opting for the procedure. The method includes taking fat from parts of the body, such as the abdomen and thighs, and injecting it into the breasts. The effect is more natural-looking breasts with a slight increase in size and a fuller appearance. It also has fewer risks compared to implants and a similar recovery time.
Dr. Scottsdale has garnered tremendous acclaim from his clients, who have successfully achieved their desired face and/or body. His work can be viewed on his Instagram page @drscottsdale, and he can be contacted for an appointment on https://www.naturalresultsaz.com/.
