Cosmetic Surgery Trends – The Influence of Fame
BARCELONA, SPAIN, December 6, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ – While Covid decreased the total number of cosmetic procedures in 2020, the data overall tends to increase with procedures, such as the Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL), increasing by over 48% over the past five years. Medical Solutions Barcelona, a plastic and aesthetic surgery platform in Spain that treats patients from all over the world, confirms that the influence of the “Kardashian effect” on cosmetic surgery has raised awareness of what can be achieved with aesthetic treatments.
The rise in BBL procedures is arguably attributable to Kim Kardashian ‘breaking the internet’ with her Paper magazine cover photo shoot, and the latest fox eye look also popularized by celebs Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner. But, while a celebrity can start a trend, that’s not always the driving force behind an individual’s decision to have cosmetic surgery.
In the past, it was common for patients to show their plastic surgeon a photo of a celebrity and ask for the same features, be it the shape of the eyes, nose, or bust. The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) found that 59% of patients now refer to the area in question rather than a celebrity. This is probably due in part to the information available online where the majority of patients now do their research before scheduling a consultation.
Patients are now looking to undergo surgery that enhances their natural beauty. They always want to look the same – only better – and will make changes to their appearance to improve an issue rather than large-scale changes that dramatically alter their appearance. This demand for natural looking results is compelling in the fields of surgical and minimally invasive procedures. So instead of celebrity photos, they will bring photoshoped images that they themselves edited to reshape and erase their unwanted features.
It is likely that celebrities, social media, and reality TV will continue to influence trends in both surgical and non-surgical aesthetics. The demand for cosmetic surgery treatments will increase as the techniques become less invasive, more advanced, and less expensive. New innovations and technologies will improve the quality of treatments and they will become even safer and with more predictable results.
As people live longer, they want to look and feel their best for as long as possible. Delaying the aging process with plastic surgery will become even more popular in the future. Over the past decade, the different types of plastic surgery procedures have mushroomed. Where once the only option for the face was a full facelift, there are now mini-facelifts, lower facelifts and targeted surgeries for specific areas, be it around the eyes, nose, cheeks or neck. .
In the future, individual cosmetic treatments will be even more tailored to specific patient profiles in order to achieve the most natural results available. Celebrity influence may still play a role, but the future of plastic surgery offers exciting, tailored solutions that are as individual as each patient.
