Face and jawlineEach year the cosmetic surgery industry experiences its own trends and emerging advancements in the technology that’s used to achieve ever-improving results. Social media allows beauty trends to spread far and wide at lightning speed, but what sort of cosmetic trends and emerging technologies can we expect for 2020?

Dermal fillers for the jawline

With images of ourselves captured from every angle on a regular basis due to the selfie-culture and easy access to a camera on a mobile phone, industry experts claim that attention may grow on the shape of the jawline - something that’s important for both men and women. When it comes to the jawline, most patients are looking for a more defined lower facial shape with improved symmetry. There’s very little down time injectable dermal fillers, and just a little swelling and soreness can be expected around the injection site on the day of the procedure.

Botox to show no signs of slowing

Several rapidly evolving technologies means the popularity of another non-invasive procedure, Botox, is also likely to continue its popularity growth. Improvements to technology and methods has seen results achieve a far smoother and more radiant appearance these days rather than the somewhat paralytic effect of years gone by. The fact that there is no longer a stigma toward Botox, or any other non-invasive cosmetic procedure for that matter, means a younger generation of patients than ever before are now seeking cosmetic treatments.

Chin fillers increasing in popularity

Much like the predicted increase in jawline procedures, the chin is another area of the face that people want to address for similar reasons. An increasing number of men have been turning to chin filler treatments to improve the symmetry of their face and to enhance their masculine facial metrics, and 2020 could see this number continue to rise rapidly. This is another treatment that requires no downtime for recovery with only some swelling and soreness expected around the injected site. For those who are seeking a more permanent result, surgery is available in the form of chin implants.

Painless body contouring

There are a variety of procedures that can be used to carry out body contouring, with both liposuction and tummy tucks falling within that category. There are also several non-invasive techniques that have emerged during the past few years with varying success, and the popularity in these procedures is expected to increase as well as the attention paid to improving the results they can achieve.

The size of breast implants

The demand for breast augmentation surgery remains as strong as ever, but last year saw more and more women opting for smaller and more natural looking breasts. This trend is likely to continue through 2020 as people are now considering their overall appearance and appreciate the positive effects of choosing to make just small and subtle enhancements to their face and body, as opposed to large or more over-the-top transformations.

No matter what the top cosmetic surgery trends of 2020 may be, it’s vital that you consult a reputable board-certified plastic surgeon or practitioner before making any decisions.
