It’s that time of year again when people start forecasting the trends for the new year. Plastic surgery is always a hot topic and this year is no different. Many of the trends are fueled by celebrities. In an article published by the New York Daily News, the plastic surgery fads for 2016 will be as follows:
1. Smaller Breasts – The request for smaller breasts is being linked to actress Ariel Winter from Modern Family who had a breast reduction earlier this year. There are a number of other popular celebrities who have smaller breasts, which just reinforces the idea that natural looking breasts are in and big breasts are out. Years ago it was common for women to ask for breast implants that would give them a D cup or larger, but over the years the trend has definitely been shifting to a smaller size. Now plastic surgeons frequently perform breast augmentation on women wanting to be a full B or C cup.
2. Bigger Butts - Thanks to celebrities like Khloe and Kim Kardashian, J Lo, and Iggy Azalea. Although not every woman wants a booty quite as large, women are wanting a fuller sexier backside.
3. Larger Lips – This probably comes as no surprise since the lip plumping craze has been all over social media as a result of Kylie Jenner. The demand for fuller lips isn’t expected to slow down anytime soon.
4. Neck & Chin Enhancement – With the popularity of the selfie and selfie sticks, men and women are more conscious about their appearance than ever before. In a world where we post pictures for everyone to see, judge, and even comment on, we have become extremely aware of our every flaw and even use photo editing programs to erase anything we don’t want others to see. As a result, the desire for cosmetic procedures has increased & plastic surgeons are seeing a surge in procedures such as neck liposuction, non-surgical Kybella neck fat removal, chin implants, and even neck tightening.
At the Pacific Center for Plastic Surgery and BioSpa in Newport Beach, we have seen a steady increase in 2015 in the request for natural breast augmentation, Brazilian butt lift, lip augmentation, and neck and chin enhancement. We expect the demand for these procedures to continue into 2016, along with an increase in vaginal rejuvenation.
