With the 2014 calendar year coming to a close, facial plastic surgeons at the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) have predicted what this upcoming year will bring for the cosmetic surgery industry in terms of growth and potential trends.
Dr. Stephen Park, a facial plastic surgeon and president of AAFPRS, stated, “We expect the interest in cosmetic procedures – both surgical and non-surgical — to continue to climb in 2015 due to the improving economy, increased consumer awareness and a growing comfort level with the safety of cosmetic treatments.”
The plastic surgeons at Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery have also seen a steady customer base over the last decade for plastic surgery procedures, both facial and non-facial (i.e. breasts, abdomen, thighs). The stigma of getting work done is loosing its touch and patients have undoubtedly become more comfortable with the idea of cosmetic surgery. Regardless, the two surgeons are sharing some of the AAFPRS’s predictions for next year.
With the “selfie” trend showing no signs of letting up, plastic surgeons are predicating the requests for rhinoplasties (nose jobs), eyelid rejuvenation(s), neck contouring and other facial surgeries will either increase or stay relatively the same in 2015. You can thank social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for this, primarily because a growing number of users have become more cognizant/judgmental of their appearance.
Facial plastic surgeons from the organization have also predicted an increase in patients requesting little “tweaks” to their face like an earlobe reduction, injectable fillers, the removal of mole or birthmarks, and/or injections to the lips and nostrils.
Speaking of injectables, with advances in surgical and nonsurgical procedures, surgeons are also predicting an increase in “stackable” procedures—a.k.a. combining laser skin rejuvenation therapies with injectables with minimally invasive surgical procedures.
