Plastic surgery trends are spreading across the globe. In this “selfie” obsessed culture, filters are no longer enough. Instead, people are turning to cosmetic surgery to get their dream look. To meet this growing demand, surgeons must constantly innovate and train. This noticeably appears in South Korean clinics, a growing mecca for cosmetic surgery. We are world renown for our cutting-edge techniques and on-trend procedures. Therefore, we offer a diversity of cosmetic procedures for all consumers, dependent on what are their issues.
Plastic Surgery Trends: What’s Trending Worldwide
Perhaps one of the most popular plastic surgery trends has been rhinoplasty, most commonly known as the nose reshaping or the nose job. Rhinoplasty is no new procedure. However, with with the rise of “selfie” culture, it has seen a spike in popularity. Specifically here in Korea, over 200,000 patients received the surgical procedure. They are the second most popular surgery. It is common to see online that many celebrities have gotten a rhinoplasty. This procedure involves precision and an attention to detail in which our Banobagi physicians are renowned.
2. Breast Augmentation
Another worldwide plastic surgery trend is breast augmentation. You may call it the boob job. Like rhinoplasty, boob jobs are no new procedure. However, physicians and their female clients’ perspectives are changing. More and more women are opting for a more natural over excessive enhancement and their medical professionals agree. At Banobagi Hospital, our staff prides itself on not pushing the “best implants” but the “appropriate implants” for our patients. We are not in the business of creating new people, but maximizing what’s already there. Our surgeons understand the different ethnicities and body types. Therefore, they know how to provide the best results for each patient.
3. Body Contouring/Liposuction
Two popular plastic surgery trends are liposuction and body contouring. Liposuction is a classic in cosmetic surgery trends. However, body contouring is a newbie to the industry. Liposuction is a plastic surgery staple. Many have undergone this procedure to get their dream body and live their dream lives. Despite its longevity, liposuction has drastically changed. With advanced technology comes advanced results. Recovery time is decreasing while clients’ satisfaction is on the rise. Although liposuction technology is progressing forward, many people are still seeking non-invasive procedures. This is where body contouring comes into play. Cryolipolysis, otherwise known as cool sculpting, and laser lipolysis, or heated sculpting, are two of the hottest trends. These trends involve using controlled cooling and heating to melt (or freeze) away fat! Because of this non-surgical process, clients are receiving optimal results in lightning speed.
Men are now becoming more interested in cosmetic procedures. They are no longer as concerned with the stigma of plastic surgery. According to ISAPS, approximately 13.8% of procedures were performed on men. The most sought after surgeries for men are rhinoplasty, liposuction, hair transplantation and blepharoplasty. Men are even doing petit surgeries such as Botox and Fillers to refresh their look. At Banobagi, we have seen a rapid increase in the number of male clients.
