Top Three Popular Procedures for 2012 Predicted

May 17th 2012 at 5:12 AM

Liposuction and breast augmentation surgery were among the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in 2011. For this year, however, Dr. Gregory Baum and Dr. Anthony Deboni are predicting three procedures that are going to be the most popular ones for the duration of 2012. These would be laser rejuvenation, mommy makeovers, and dermal filler injectables. Both doctors explained one by one why they think that these would take the three top spots for 2012.

First of all, they both think that laser rejuvenation would be such a hit because it addresses so many cosmetic dilemmas, while at the same time, being minimally invasive. Dr. Deboni said that laser rejuvenation is highly favored by those who want so many things done on their body but all the while afraid to go under the knife. Two of the many advantages of laser rejuvenation according to him are that it is minimally invasive, and is able to target many problems all with the same procedure. Dr. Baum also adds that the procedure can take care of problems such as dark spots on the skin, formation of scar tissue, pimples, wrinkles, and so much more. All of these results are achieved with little or even no recovery time needed post-operation.

Second on their list are dermal fillers. Dr. Baum explained that the concept behind these fillers is to increase the volume underneath the subcutaneous tissue, thereby increasing the tightness of the skin and decreasing the magnitude of wrinkle formation. This process, according to his clients, has the effect of dramatically reducing the perceived age by a number of years. He also added that the lost volume due to aging is quickly and efficiently replaced, at least temporarily, and that it is a non-invasive technique, thus removing any element of scarring and skin damage.

Lastly, both doctors believe that mommy makeovers are going to be highly in demand this year. These makeovers involve two main procedures—abdominoplasty and breast augmentation. Dr. Deboni explains that abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck procedure, is the removal of excess skin and fat that are left hanging from the abdomen after child birth. It can help tighten the abdominal muscles and flatten out bellies in order to have that youthful and fit body that the patient used to have before pregnancy. This procedure is coupled with breast augmentation so that the general problem of women’s breasts sagging a few months after child birth is addressed. Breast augmentation procedures could also be adjusted to lift up, increase, or decrease the mass of the breast tissue, depending on what kind of result the patient wants. Dr. Baum says that mommy makeovers are going to be popular because so many concerns are taken care of in a single surgery session, and that these sessions could easily be tailor-made for each patient’s specific needs.

Amid their predictions, both plastic surgeons say that the number of people seeking out help in the form of cosmetic surgery will definitely go up regardless of what procedure they undertake. This is because most people are not anymore scared of going under the knife, since modern doctors and improved medical standards have transformed plastic surgery into a field where patient care is of utmost importance. They both believe that undergoing plastic surgery procedures don’t just improve one’s external appearance—they also help improve one’s self-esteem. And having high regards for one’s image not only polishes up his/her own view of the world, but also affects the people around them. Smiles are contagious, and having a radiant smile, even if through plastic surgery, is something that ought to be shared with the rest of the world.
