Trends in Facial Plastic Surgery: Surgical VS. Non-surgical

Plastic Surgery Boston, MADid you know that there are always new advancements in plastic surgery trends, technologies, and treatments? New lasers and new procedures excite us, because we love giving you the best results.

We know we’ve entered the right profession when we can’t get enough of plastic surgery news and trends. A study done by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery is currently helping us prepare for all of the new trends and treatments that you’ll soon be asking us for! According to a study by the AAFPRS, demand for non-invasive treatments (like those utilizing injectables) rose alongside treatments for people in their twenties. We’re seeing some major shifts! Keep reading to learn more about these trends in plastic surgery.

Younger Patients

Younger patients and millennials are getting more treatments than previous generations at their age. If you’re surprised, don’t be. Plastic surgery is more available, less expensive, and better than ever before. Plus, social media has lead everyone to be a little more aware of their appearance and their best angles for selfies. But, wait. They don’t have wrinkles yet. They don’t need anything done yet. They’re aware, and taking their fate into their own hands.

Millennials and younger people are not only opting to perfect features they’re not happy with, they’re also choosing to prevent issues now. Preventative treatments like laser treatments to boost collagen production and Botox injections to avoid wrinkles forming are rising steadily.

More Fillers Please

Filler technology has also improved in recent years, which means that you can get better, more natural results from a few syringes. We can help you choose the best filler for the feature you want to sculpt. Firmer fillers will work best on cheeks and chins, whereas lips will look best with a filler that has a little more softness to it.

Fillers are also utilized more often to correct issues that until recently required a large price tag and a long downtime. Looking for a quick rhinoplasty? That is already a reality for patients with certain needs.

If you’re interested in learning more about what fillers can do for you, give us a call at (617) 632-7369 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Lin today.
