Plastic Surgery: New Surgery Trends Popping Up In 2017

224

New trends in plastic surgery and many different types of cosmetic surgeries continue to increase by the day all over the world. This increase could be because they have become more affordable and there is less stigma attached to the procedures nowadays. Both males and females dominate the market. Below are the new trends popping on the top up in 2017?

Dimpleplasty

Dimpleplasty is one of the newest trends in plastic surgery. While most people with dimples get them genetically, it is possible to get dimples today through plastic surgery. With the help of qualified medical professionals, women are now transforming their facial looks by having dimples crafted on their cheeks. The procedure is minimally invasive and requires no general anesthesia. It takes about 30 minutes to create a defect inside the cheek muscle of the patient known as the buccinators. It takes about two months before the patient heals and the dimple start to show.

Labiaplasty

Some women are very conscious of the size of their labia. It is now possible for those women to have the labia size they always wanted. Labiaplasty is the procedure that reduces the size of the labia minora and even though this type of surgery has been around for many years, it has become one of the most sought after procedures in 2017. The procedure gives women the confidence to wear whatever they wish, like swimsuits without the fear of a bulging genitalia showing. It also helps to make garments such as jeans more comfortable to wear as the labia is not rubbing on the material.

Nipple reduction


Women (and men) have been obsessed with breasts since history can record. Breast enlargement is one of the oldest plastic surgery procedures in the market with women wanting rounder breast, bigger nipples (areolas), and more perky breasts. However, in recent years there have been new trends with the looks of breasts. Women no longer want big nipples, they are more interested in having smaller nipples. According to the experts at CosMediTour, this is the most requested procedure in 2017. It is no longer trendy to have large nipples with women feeling, they are more attractive with larger sized breasts that have smaller nipples.

Fat grafting

Fat grafting is another plastic surgery procedure trending in 2017. Anyone not happy with how some of their body parts look especially if they think those parts are not big enough can now have fat injected into them. The surgeon harvests some fat from (mostly the abdomen) using the procedure known as liposuction, then injects the fat to the places the patients’ wants lifted/plumped. The areas mostly rejuvenated with the fat are the face, the buttocks and the breasts. Compared to fillers, the results of this procedure last longer because as the patients use their own fat as the injected material.

Plastic surgery for men

Many people associate plastic surgery with women. Today, plastic surgery is for not only women or the rich and famous and more and more men are turning to plastic surgery to change their looks. 2017 has seen more and more men seek plastic surgery in the following areas:

  • Penile enhancement surgery
  • Abdominal etching
  • Facelifts
  • Tattoo removals
  • Implants especially for bodybuilders
  • Liposuction
  • Male breast reduction
  • Nose surgeries
  • Tie tuck
  • Eyelid surgeries
  • Butt implants and many more.

Conclusion
Plastic surgery trends keep changing as the years go by. What is trendy this year may not be as trendy next year. Whatever the case, if it makes one feel good about themselves, then no reason should prevent them from reviewing, researching and then going ahead with the procedure they desire.

24 Beauty And Style Brands Donating To The Fight To End Police Brutality Against Black People

From small, boutique brands to legacy fashion brands.

The worlds of beauty and fashion often collide, whether for good or bad. In both, underrepresentation has always been, and remains to be, a major unresolved issue. After the recent killing of George Floyd, many people are rightfully enraged, compounded by the fact his death in police custody wasn't an isolated incident.

Police brutality against Black people is not new, and isn't going away till we start dedicating resources to fighting it. Many of us, as individuals, have only begun in the last week scratching the surface of what it means to educate ourselves on race, historical race relations, and how to be an ally to the Black community.

True Self-Care Is HARD, That Face Mask Isn't Actually Going To Solve Your Problems

There's a line between self-care and self-destruction.

Anyone who hasn't been living under a rock for the past few years has seen something somewhere about self-care whether it was on Facebook, Twitter, or their Instagram feed. Oftentimes it's pictures of celebrities or influencers sipping green smoothies or slathering on mud masks with #selfcare. It's posts like these that made me realize that "self-care" has become the ultimate buzz word, soaring in popularity but in the process, it's lost most of its original meaning. It's time to set the record straight and reclaim the term.

Although self-care has been around for quite some time, within the past few years it's been misconstrued and commodified as our capitalist society tends to do with things it thinks can be profited off. Self-care is now being peddled as something that can be bought and sold on the shelf at Target rather than something that takes real work to achieve. This fake self-care movement is not only enabling people to over-indulge themselves, but it has created a crutch for people to avoid the responsibility of taking true care of themselves. Instead of doing the work that needs to be done, many people fall into the trap of rewarding themselves for doing nothing at all — this can quickly become an unhealthy coping mechanism, especially with corporations cheering us on (to buy their next product). Long, hard day at work? Just grab your third iced coffee of the day! Fight with your SO? Buy that 50-dollar face mask, it'll make you feel better! This is how self-care becomes self-sabotage and self-destructive.
