Over the past year, liposuction overtook breast augmentation as the most internationally sought-after procedure, with patients wanting full body contouring instead of focusing on just the chest. “This trend will be seen well into 2023. Contouring procedures remove excess fat and account for just under 15% of cosmetic surgeries performed around the world – almost 2% higher than the amount of breast augmentation procedures that are performed,” explains Dr. Bell.
Even non-surgical body contouring is seeing a surge as people want to enjoy the sculpting results without going under the knife. “Amazingly, the cosmetic surgery industry has grown beyond pre-pandemic levels as people seek self-betterment and become the best version of themselves,” says Dr. Bell.
Along with the demand for body contouring comes the need to remove breast implants – the number of patients seeking to remove implants has grown substantially as natural beauty has been emphasized more recently.
The Rise in Body Contouring
Liposuction, an always-popular procedure, has been growing even more in popularity as people want long-lasting results that are hard to achieve when the body holds onto stubborn pockets of fat that are hard to get rid of with diet and exercise alone. “I find that patients also love the customizability of liposuction and other body contouring procedures – you may be pleased with your abdomen but want to reduce pockets of fat on your arms or thighs. You pick where you want to contour to achieve your dream body,” states Dr. Bell.
It’s not just women who are seeking out liposuction treatments, either! There has been a drastic increase in men receiving cosmetic treatments like liposuction to contour their bodies and boost their self esteem.
Along with liposuction, we will continue to see a rise in rhinoplasty procedures, tummy tucks, lifts in various body areas, and eyelid surgery. No matter which procedure you want this year, it’s extremely important to do your homework and pick a board-certified cosmetic surgeon with experience and training who will ensure you are happy with your results.
