+ - What are the most sought after surgical procedures?

  • Aesthetic Society surgeons predict jawline contouring will gain popularity in 2021. With people spending hours on screen time, complaints are rolling in from patients who are acutely aware of extra skin or fat underneath their neck. Now that virtual meetings and video calls are the new normal, patients want a sharp neck contour.
  • Liposuction is likely to surpass breast augmentation in 2021. The decreased access to health clubs and fitness group facilities has contributed to weight gain and people are going to look for options for improvement.

+ - What surgeries do men typically go for?

  • Men will seek subtle surgical procedures with high impact like blepharoplasty. This procedure has been increasing in popularity over the past 10 years and can result in a younger appearance. With masks being incorporated in everyday style, eyes will remain the focal point of how we look.
  • Body contouring and liposuction remain extremely popular with men, especially now as many men do not need to be physically in the office for work— they can recover easily at home from procedures while still being on the job.

+ - How do millenials and generation Z feel about Surgery?

  • Younger patients are all about prevention and they are educated on plastic surgery procedures because so much plastic surgery related content is available on social media like TikTok and Instagram.
  • The popularity of injectables and facial injections skyrocketed in the last several years. It has become part of culture and the millennial generation is being raised with injectables and facial fillers as an accepted part of regular "grooming" – just as getting one's nails or hair done.

+ - Are there procedures that aren't as popular anymore?

  • "Foxy eyes"—a procedure trending on social media and popularized by the lifted eyebrows of Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid. Threads are used to lift the eyebrows, giving eyes an almond shape. Patients ask for it because they see it on many younger celebrities. At the end of the day, there are risks and members advise against altering your facial features just because it's trendy.
