What will be the most popular trends in 2012?
With new shows like Bridalplasty and media coverage on Mommy Makeovers. I predict that there will be an increase in Liposuction, Tummy Tucks, Breast Augmentation; all trending younger. The 30- something and 40- something group is already trying Botox, Dsyport and Xeomin and using fillers especially for lip plumping.
For nonsurgial facial rejuvenation HA Fillers, such as Juvederm, Perlane, Resytane will continue to be popular. Since HA fillers are temporary, consider them a great alternative to permanent fillers. If you don’t like the look, you can always have it dissolved with a product called Hyaluronidase, which is safe to use.
For those of you that have filler fatigue and are tired of getting fillers every 6-9 months there are longer lasting fillers such as, Sculptra, Radiesse, and soon to come to market Voluuma ( a longer lasting HA), currently be offered in the UK and Canada. For permanent fillers try Artefill or Fat Grafting.
The trend in facial surgery is also getting younger, which makes sense. Your skin has more collagen and ellastin in your 40′s than 50′s or 60′s. A facelift should last longer than if you had your first lift in your 50′s. Since the neck is the fist to go and the most difficult to fix, having a facelift younger makes sense.
Rejuvenating with Stem Cells is a new area that will start to gain momentum as more surgeons start to offer stem cell rejuvenation. Companies such as Cyro-Lip actually can freeze Fat Tissue from liposuction, which is very rich in stem cells to later inject it into your face as filler. Younger stem cells will rejuvenate your skin.
It will be an exciting year in aesthetics.
