New Year, new you instantly becomes a realistic possibility when you consider cosmetic surgery trends. Popular treatment predictions for 2015 include advanced transplant surgery, updated facelift enhancements and non-invasive anti-ageing solutions. A rise in new procedures, and an increase in breast reduction enquiries, is also expected.
New Trends include:
Hair and Eyebrow Transplant
Due to the growing list of celebrities that have admitted to undergoing hair transplant treatment the cosmetic surgery procedure has grown in popularity. Hair transplant however, is no longer just for men. Women who have welcomed the surgery, for thinning hair on the head, can now raise an eyebrow at the treatment that is set to permanently restore or establish hair on the eyebrow. Eyebrow transplants enquiries are predicted to increase significantly due to celebrity inspiration from Keira Knightley, Kate Middleton and model Cara Delevingne.
The modern non-surgical cosmetic facelift treatment was recently highlighted by Kim Kardashian and is expected to increase in popularity. Also known as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, the ‘Vampire Facelift’ gets its name from the harvesting of the patient’s blood that is re-injected into the desired areas of the face to plump skin, fill out fine lines and produce a more radiant appearance. The treatment works particularly well around the eyes, nose and mouth and can also be used to give the décolletage a more youthful look. Platelet Rich Plasma stimulates the production of collagen, which boosts the volume of your skin and evens out skin texture and tone.
Line and Wrinkle Treatment
The non-invasive filler option was hugely popular in 2014 and is expected to continue being the one of the most requested anti-ageing cosmetic solutions. Line and wrinkle reduction treatments iron out fine lines and wrinkles and involve injecting and paralyzing the facial muscles. The skin rejuvenation treatment creates a more youthful appearance and leaves skin feeling smoother. The treatment is ideal for minimizing frown lines between the eyes, crow’s feet, and lines around the mouth.
Expected Enquiry Increase
Some cosmetic surgery treatments will naturally see a surge in enquiry requests. Celebrity influence often drives interest and creates demand for reduction treatments and enhancement surgery. According to research carried out by CosmeDocs of Harley Street, non-surgical procedures that require little or no down time are increasing in popularity due to the smaller dent these treatments create on your bank balance. Enquiries for non-surgical nose jobs more than doubled in 2014, whilst breast reduction enquiries went up 89% because there is no other surgical alternative available.
Radiofrequency skin tightening is expected to become a popular on-trend procedure because it requires no general anaesthetic and offers substantial savings. The Thread Lift procedure offers a cheaper and less invasive alternative to a full neck lift and is a new treatment destined for celebrity interest.
