Latest Cosmetic Surgery Trends

The New Ideal in American Beauty

With so many options to choose from today – both surgical and non-surgical – more men and women than ever before are turning to cosmetic procedures to “enhance” rather than dramatically change their looks. An article in the current issue of Los Angeles magazine, “Meet the New L.A. Ideal,” confirms that even in L.A., patients are getting more realistic about what they want.

Full Lips

While lip augmentation doubled in the U.S. between 2010 and 2011, L.A. patients want a more conservative approach that creates a bee-stung, rather than blowfish, effect.

Hyper-Smooth Skin

The idea is to reduce fine lines and pores, even out skin tone and refine texture for a more youthful appearance. Chemical peels and laser skin resurfacing offer a variety of options.

“Ethnic” Nose

According to L.A. surgeons, the trend in rhinoplasty – especially among patients with “ethnic” noses – is to refine, not alter, overall shape.

Believable Breasts

Since 2006, L.A. surgeons report that the preference is for a more natural-looking breast size that balances an hourglass shape.

Big Booty

For some – especially Latin American women – the backside is more important than the front. Over the last decade, there’s been a 235 percent increase in butt lifts in the United States and a rising popularity of silicone butt implants.
