Board-certified plastic surgeon in Orlando, Florida, discusses the most popular beauty trends currently being requested at plastic surgery offices across the country.
Online PR News – 07-July-2012 – Orlando, FL – Like in fashion, what’s beautiful changes with the season. Although there has always been, and will always be, a true standard of beauty, there are certain trends that come and go in the cosmetic surgery field—many of which are based on the changing styles and attitudes of Hollywood celebrities.
“We’re seeing women and men going back to a more natural appearance when it comes to cosmetic surgery treatments,” said Dr. Pope. “Women are wanting fuller lips, but not Angelina Jolie sized lips; they’re wanting fuller breasts through breast augmentation surgery, but are keeping the size natural looking.”
According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), breast augmentations and tummy tucks were the most popular cosmetic surgery treatments of 2011. “This year, we are certainly seeing a lot of these same procedures again, especially breast augmentation—as expected, but there are a few new procedures growing in popularity that are relatively new to the market,” said Dr. Pope.
Brazilian butt lifts are gaining popularity in 2012. According to an article that appeared in the latest Plastic Surgery News from ASAPS, increased interest in this surgery can be accredited to curvy celebrities like Jennifer Lopez and Sophia Vergara. According to ASAPS, patient satisfaction from Brazilian butt lifts is extremely high, with some 93 percent of patients very happy with their surgery.
Another surgery that’s piquing the interest of women across the United States is the Mommy Makeover. Dr. Pope has performed many Mommy Makeovers of the years, and is seeing more requests than ever. “A full Mommy Makeover can include a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, and breast lift, as well as liposuction,” said Dr. Pope. “It’s performed all at the same time.”
According to RealSelf magazine, online surgery for Mommy Makeovers and post-baby surgery are up 13 percent over the past year. And a recent consumer poll conducted by this website said that women who receive these treatments report a boost in “self-confidence, attractiveness, and satisfaction with their sex life.” 98 percent of Mommy Makeover patients say their surgery was “worth it.”
Dr. Pope said that surgeries aren’t the only trends hot this summer. The injectables Botox and Sculptra are leading the non-invasive procedures at his practice. “These injectables are an easy way to achieve a natural, red-carpet-ready look this summer.”
The Orlando plastic surgery practice is currently offering a summer special until August 31, 2012, that includes a free breast augmentation consultation and monthly financing payments for breast augmentation for as low as $119 per month. If Orlando breast augmentation surgery is elected, the patient will receive 25 units of Botox for themselves and also for a friend.
According to Dr. Pope, some of the hottest over-the-counter beauty treatments this summer at the Orlando plastic surgery practice include Clarisonic products, Obagi products, TNS Recovery Complex, TNS Essential Serum, and Revision skincare products. “Our ViPeel Chemical Peels and Jessner Peels are also a popular trend this summer—offering big results with minimal downtime,” said Dr. Pope.
