Summer 2021 is finally here and there are so many things to look forward to this season! With vaccines rolling out and Covid-19 restrictions easing up, we are all excited to make fun summer plans that were sorely missed last year. Whether it be a beach vacation, wedding, hot date, or girls’ night out, people want to look their very best post-quarantine. We have seen a major increase in patients looking for both noninvasive and cosmetic surgery procedures to get ready for this summer!
Current trending procedures of 2021 include lip filler, Botox, liposuction, and breast augmentations.
Goodbye masks and hello luscious lips! Lip injections have been gaining increasing popularity well before Covid, especially among the younger demographic. And as masks start to come off this summer, it’s no wonder we’ve seen a major trend towards getting lip filler. This treatment is a great option for those who are looking to add volume or definition to their lips.
Another current trend in the cosmetic industry is Botox, specifically preventative Botox. There have been many patients in their 20s and early 30s wanting to treat the lines on their forehead and between their brows. Preventative Botox is a great way to minimize those unwanted fine lines and optimize the aging process.
Anyone struggling with losing the ‘Quarantine 15’? Weight gain in 2020 was inevitable with being housebound and nothing much to do besides eat snacks and watch Netflix. Now, many people are looking for procedures that can help tighten up their figure. Liposuction is a trending procedure that is great for treating unwanted fat in problem areas like the thighs, abdomen, flanks, arms, back, and even the chin.
Breast augmentations have been one of the most sought-after procedures in 2021. Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that helps to improve the appearance, size, and shape of the breasts. This procedure offers a major confidence boost to any woman who may feel self-conscious about the contour of her breasts.
An uptick in cosmetic surgery procedures didn’t just start in 2021. In fact, more than 15.5 million cosmetic surgery procedures were performed in 2020 alone, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
Even with plastic surgery practices closing for an average of 8 weeks at the beginning of the pandemic, Americans still spent $9 billion on plastic surgery last year! This has been attributed to what is called the “Zoom Boom.” The Zoom Boom refers to the rise in demand for cosmetic procedures due to people seeing themselves on screen while working from home.
With some people continuing to work remotely, there have been many benefits to getting elective procedures done during this time. It has offered a way for people to take less time off work during the recovery process and even not have to mention their procedure at all.
