As beauty standards are ever-changing, it’s important to be aware of aesthetic trends, desired looks in Hollywood, and how external factors affect how people view themselves and how they want to look. With the rapid development of surgical and non-surgical technology, cosmetic surgery is more accessible and diverse than ever. Today, we will discuss surgery trends for 2023, as predicted by Dr. Bell, and a summary of this year’s most significant cosmetic demands.
What Was The Most Popular Surgery in 2022?
Past trends indicated that Rhinoplasty (nose surgery) would be the most popular cosmetic procedure for years, but in the past year, breast reduction surgery has come out at #1. With constantly changing beauty trends coming out of Hollywood and the self-reflection we all did during the COVID-19 pandemic, many people are opting for procedures that make them happy instead of staying on-trend.
Therefore, breast reduction surgery makes sense as a top procedure, as it can relieve a lot of pain and help clothes fit better so you can express your style.
Dr. Bell will always strive to provide optimal results to people who have struggled with some regions of their body for a long time, whether it be because of pain or self-esteem issues. He always wants to ensure your goals are realistic and benefit your self-confidence at the end of the day.
Favourite Plastic Surgery Procedures in 2023
Some predictions based on past trends and patterns for cosmetic procedures that will be popular in 2023 are listed below. These predictions are based on research, along with Dr. Bell’s surgical expertise.
Many people gained weight during the pandemic, as gyms were closed and cooking at home became more popular. As people continue fighting off the extra pounds, many seek liposuction and tummy tucks to achieve their dream body. For those who want a non-invasive option, non-surgical body contouring procedures are also on the rise.
The past two years were pivotal for facial plastic surgery – predominantly rhinoplasties, eyelid surgeries, and facelifts. With the rise of lip and cheek injections, injectables and dermal fillers remain one of the most sought-after cosmetic treatments to rejuvenate the skin and improve the appearance of thinner lips. In 2023, Dr. Bell predicts that there will be an even desire for both body and face procedures.
Breast augmentation remains the most popular cosmetic procedure performed in North America. Many people seek out breast augmentation after a mastectomy, after pregnancy, to correct asymmetrical breasts, after rapid weight loss or gain, or to increase the size and volume of their breasts.
This procedure is highly customizable, and different types of implants and procedure options are becoming readily available in larger numbers every year. This customizability means more and more people will seek out breast augmentation procedures in 2023.
As we continue to deconstruct gender norms and toxic masculinity, more men are seeking plastic surgery every year to achieve self-confidence. Gynecomastia correction is the reduction of breast tissue in males and has become extremely popular in the last year – and it will only become more prevalent in 2023.
In cities where looks are key, like Los Angeles, Toronto, and New York City, men and women seek cosmetic procedures to reduce the signs of aging. If you’re on screen or want to impress yourself and others, reducing the look of fine lines and wrinkles can be a great way to stay aesthetically young. Men seek surgical and non-surgical options to achieve smooth, rejuvenated skin, especially as younger people enter the workforce.
Lastly, liposuction has quickly become the most popular plastic surgery procedure for men and will continue to trend in 2023. Male liposuction focuses on removing stubborn fat from the lower abdomen and sides, as well as chests, backs, and shoulders, achieving a sculpted and toned physique.
In terms of procedures that women have been seeking more this year and will continue to pursue in 2023, labiaplasty surgery is on the rise as an effective way to make women feel good about themselves, produce natural lubrication, and not experience pain during intercourse. This surgery goes hand-in-hand with “mommy makeovers” – a full makeover involving many customizable procedures that can reduce fat gained from pregnancy, wrinkles from aging/stress, and lifts to create a rejuvenated, youthful appearance.
Liposuction is also almost as standard as breast augmentation, as women especially have difficulty getting rid of stubborn pockets of fat in their abdomen, thighs, arms, and buttocks. Liposuction for both men and women will continue to be popular in 2023.
Lastly, blepharoplasty has become the second most popular surgical facial procedure, which is called “eyelid” surgery. As women age, they desire to remove excess skin and fat above the eyelid to look more awake and youthful.
What Is The Most Popular Surgery in Canada?
While liposuction is the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure worldwide, breast augmentation tops the list in Canada and will continue to do so in 2023. 25% of procedures performed in Canada were related to breast enhancement for many reasons. Along with liposuction, tummy tucks, eyelid surgery, and fillers, breast augmentation procedures will be the most sought-after treatment in 2023.
