Cosmetic procedures have been around for a long time but have become extremely popular in recent years. Since 2017, the number of people who have undergone surgery has skyrocketed. It used to be only available to rich or famous people, but recently it has become widely accessible. Plastic surgery is now extremely cheaper than it was before, and there are also a variety of finance plans available for it. The technology and techniques that are used are sophisticated, which means the outcomes are better, the recovery times are much quicker, and more surgeries can be done in a day.  This has meant it is much more affordable for anyone to invest in. 

Not only is plastic surgery now more accessible, but it has also become extremely trendy. Famous figures such as the Kardashians have changed the beauty industry in a variety of ways, including the demand for body enhancements. This has made plastic surgery more accepted within society, and significantly increased the demand for it.

With the plastic surgery industry growing, there are a plethora of surgeries available. Some are sought after for their health benefits, while some are intended to change the way you look. If you’re not sure what kind of surgery you want, here are some of the top trends in 2022 to help you decide. 

#1 Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are one of the most popular types of plastic surgeries on the market, as they do not require you to go into surgery or go through a recovery period. These can be done quickly, and take less time than going to the hairdressers for a trim. The aim of dermal fillers is to reduce wrinkles and fine lines on your face, with just a few small injections. They are very affordable and easily accessible. Many beauty salons offer this on the high street. 

#2 Fat transfer

Fat transfers are simple procedures that take the fat cells from one area of your body, for example, from your stomach, and use them in another place in your body, such as your buttocks. This surgery is popular because using your own fat cells significantly reduces the risks of any issues or rejection. It also means you are getting two surgeries done in one go, so you only have one recovery period. Buttlifts via fat transfer are very trendy right now. 

#3 Tummy tuck

A tummy tuck has been around for years, and is still extremely popular. Also known as abdominoplasty, people undergo this surgery to change the shape of their stomach. This may involve removing fat, excess skin, stretch marks, fat or just tightening the stomach area. This is not a substitute for weight loss, but instead can be used in addition to losing weight, to remove excess skin that you cannot tighten through exercise. 

These are just some of the most common surgeries in 2022 that you should know about. All these surgeries are cost-effective and accessible. When choosing the procedure you wish to have, make sure you always opt for a reputable surgeon to complete it for you. Which plastic surgery will you choose?
