Welcome to LA! Where plastic surgery has become a simple way of life. Here in Hollywood, we like to keep ourselves looking and feeling as young and beautiful as possible. On the west coast, life is for living, and we want our faces and bodies to show off that attitude and beauty.
Plastic surgery is still a relatively controversial topic, but it’s becoming much more accepted. Not only that, but it’s becoming much more effective, and much more natural. So, what are the most beauty popular treatments among Hollywood’s finest? Just like fashion, plastic surgery trends come and go! But, here’s what’s hot right now.
Liposuction – I’m not sure there will ever be a day where liposuction isn’t at the top of the list. Losing that stubborn belly fat is the hardest part of dieting and exercising. Even the fittest and most disciplined struggle to shed it. That’s why so many people turn to liposuction, and take matters into their own hands. It’s a simple surgery, with a quick recovery time. In most cases, the cost has come down significantly over the years too. (Image Credit)
Eyelid surgery – We all know that the eyes are the first sign of aging. They’re the biggest giveaway of your true age! All the skin creams in the world can’t stop the eyes from sagging. That’s why eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is one of the most popular treatments on the market. Again, it’s fairly simple, and much less invasive than a full facelift. Yet, the results are quite fantastic.
Butt augmentation – You can thank the Kardashian clan for drawing attention to the backside! Now, everyone in Hollywood wants the Brazilian butt lift. Butt augmentation helps to create a fuller buttock area using either implants or fat grafting. It’s particularly popular because it’s very difficult to shape or tone this area with regular exercise and dieting.
Breast implants – Although this is not the ‘must-have’ surgery it once was, it’s still very popular. Many patients still feel they desire larger breasts, and simple implants will take care of the job. Although the demand for breast implants has lowered, there are a lot more breast reduction surgeries.
Nose jobs – The rhinoplasty is still one of the most requested surgeries in Hollywood. Any small flaw in the nose can cause anxiety and image struggles. After all, it has such a prominent place on the face. The nose often defines your subtle beauty, and that’s why we’re so quick to chisel it down!
Facelift – Although the quicker and less invasive eyelid surgery has become more popular, there are plenty that still demand the full facelift. When skin begins to sag, it shows off the true signs of aging. A facelift helps us rewind the clock a few years!
Botox – Of course, we couldn’t possibly leave Botox off the list. It’s everyone’s favorite ‘drop-in’ plastic surgery. Many now schedule their Botox treatments as often as they schedule a haircut. Best of all, you can do it in your lunch hour. Simple.
The plastic surgery phenomenon is still alive and well in Hollywood. But what will the next big trend be?
