pink cherry blossom treeEvery spring offers the opportunity for renewal and revitalization, and perhaps this year more so than ever, as we emerge from social isolation and shed our masks. Along with feeling better about returning to normal interactions, many of us also seek to put the ordeal of the past year behind us and look our best for long awaited reunions, events, and celebrations – or just for ourselves. As such, the demand for aesthetic procedures continues unabated, with the following plastic surgery interventions in highest demand:

  • facelift and neck lift: we’ve seen a significant increase in patients seeking facial rejuvenation as mask wearing eases; options include:
    • short scar and mini-facelifts to address the cheeks and jowls
    • microsuction and full neck lift to tighten and smooth the jawline and neck
    • fat injections as complementary procedure to improve facial contour and replace lost volume
  • rhinoplasty: many patients are taking advantage of masks to camouflage their nose after cosmetic nasal surgery; most requested improvements include:
    • reducing the overall size of the nose
    • removing a bump at the root of the nose
    • refining and narrowing the nasal tip
    • straightening a crooked nose
  • eyelid lift: in an era of mask wearing, eyes have become an even more important facial feature to convey emotion and connect with others; patients often seek one of the following procedures on the upper, lower, or both upper and lower eyelids:
    • removing hooding and droopy skin from the upper eyelids
    • eliminating undereye bags and loose skin of the lower eyelids
    • in some patients, a brow lift may be performed concurrently to enhance the cosmetic appearance of the eyes
  • body contouring improves the shape of the arms, chest, abdomen, hips, thighs, and legs; the most popular cosmetic procedures include:
    • liposuction, which removes stubborn fat deposits from the arms, belly, flanks, love handles, or saddle bags
    • tummy tuck or abdominoplasty, which tightens abdominal muscles and removes excess skin and fat from the belly
    • gynecomastia surgery in men, to improve the appearance of their chest and eliminate “man boobs”
  • breast enhancement to change the size and/or shape of a woman’s breasts with any of the following popular cosmetic surgeries:
    • breast augmentation with saline or silicone implants, or natural breast augmentation with fat injections
    • breast lift to reposition and reshape sagging breasts, performed in conjunction with or without implants
    • breast reduction to decrease the size of enlarged breasts and lessen symptoms due to excessively large breasts
  • labiaplasty to reduce bulky or excess tissues and improve the aesthetics of the labia minora, labia majora, and clitoral hood
