Looking for a crystal ball into the world of plastic surgery in 10 years? The cosmetic industry continues to bring new techniques to enhance your looks. From new longer lasting fillers to new lasers and surgical procedures the cosmetic industry will continues to bring new techniques.
The next 10 years of plastic surgery will witness more changes and here is what we anticipate:
1- As the desire to look younger in a healthier longer living society will increase, more people will demand cosmetic procedures.
2- Fat transfer will be one of principle procedures in plastic surgery. It will be used extensively not only to fill up the face, but it will be used to correct scar contracture, volume replacement following reconstructive procedures and its application in breast reconstruction will also go up.
3- More women will elect enhancement of their breast with fat graft instead of breast implants. Although breast implants offer a more predictable breast shape and volume, the tendency to “go natural’’ will drive up fat breast enhancement.
4- Safer and longer lasting fillers will continue to be manufactured and consumers will have a wider variety of fillers to choose from. In a few years, doctors will be able to use a patient's own skin tissue as the basis for a custom-tailored filler that will ideally last longer.
5- Hand rejuvenation will be the next big thing. Lasers to improve hand skin texture, remove skin spots and tighten the skin, and fillers including fat graft will be used to make the hands look more youthful.
6- Enhancement of the buttocks will continue to increase. Fat transfer to the buttocks, also known as the Brazilian butt lift, will be the main technique to shape the buttocks.
