Cosmetic Surgery Trends for 2022

Procedures in the field of plastic surgery decreased in 2020 (which was not unexpected given COVID-19), but they significantly increased in 2021.
While the popularity of some treatments, like breast augmentation and rhinoplasty, hasn’t changed much, interest in other procedures is rising.


Most Common Cosmetic Surgery Procedures

Some plastic surgery operations, as we mentioned before, continue to be popular on an annual basis. The four procedures that are outlined are the ones that we use the most frequently.


Rhinoplasty, also known as a “nose job,” is reshaping the nose to repair damage, enhance breathing, and make it more enticing and in proportion to the rest of your features.
On both men and women, about 200,000 rhinoplasty surgeries are carried out annually.

Increased breast size

Women from different backgrounds and walks of life choose to receive breast implants, whether it’s to increase the volume and size of the breasts, correct asymmetrical breasts, or reconstruct the breasts following a mastectomy.
In reality, breast augmentation remains the most common cosmetic procedure in the US, with over 300,000 procedures performed annually and one of the highest patient satisfaction ratings.

Brazilian  Butt Lift

Although the Brazilian butt lift (BBL) was once a popular cosmetic surgery procedure, its popularity over the past few years has maintained unabated.
A BBL is a fat-transfer surgery in which fat cells are extracted via liposuction from one part of the body (the belly, thighs, or hips) and injected into the buttocks.
Your physique will be improved as a result of your backside taking on more shape.

Tummy tuck

A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, is a procedure used to remove extra skin, tighten or restore strained muscles, and create a firmer, flatter abdomen.
Although many patients are choosing this treatment after achieving a goal weight to remove the sagging skin and tissue and finish their weight loss journey, this operation is frequently chosen by women after having children to restore their pre-baby bodies.

The Popularity of Cosmetic Surgery Procedures is Growing

These are expanding or continuing cosmetic surgery trends for 2022, as evidenced not just by the continuous popularity of the treatments mentioned above but also by an increase in information requests and popularity.

Eyelid surgery

The skin behind the eye can be tightened and extra fat and skin tissues that might create bags or sagging can be removed during eyelid surgery. This procedure can be done on either the upper or lower eyelids.
Many patients who opt for this operation want more “opened” eyes or a more youthful appearance without experiencing a significant change in appearance.

Lipo 360

Lipo 360 is conducted in a 360-degree manner around the entire waist, including the upper and lower abdomen, sides, and back, to eliminate the “spare tire” of excess fat. Liposuction targets a specific area to remove excess or stubborn fat deposits.
The end effect is a more beautiful overall form and silhouette as well as a smoother, slimmer waist line.

Body Sculpting

Despite the fact that a lot of people have been talking about gaining weight (the “quarantine 15”) for the past 18 months or so, some have taken advantage of the opportunity to lose weight, either through diet and exercise or gastric bypass surgery, to put an end to the fight against obesity.
The conclusion of the weight reduction journey can feel at best anticlimactic because after major weight loss, loose, sagging skin frequently remains.
Fortunately, body contouring following extreme weight reduction is a specific collection of treatments done all at once that are intended to get rid of the extra skin, fix strained or torn tissues, and boost your self-esteem.

Mommy Makeover

A customized series of operations called a “mommy makeover” is also carried out all at once to assist women in regaining their pre-baby bodies following the impacts of pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding.
More women are opting to treat their bodies for the hard work they went through, regain their confidence, and feel beautiful on the inside and out by getting a mommy makeover, which can involve operations like:
