2023 – Top Trending Cosmetic Surgery Procedures and Requests

Wondering what’s popular at Gorgeous Getaways for cosmetic surgery and requests so far in 2023? Here are our top 10 of most popular requests.

1. Natural Facelifts:

In 2023, more clients want “natural facelifts.” Many prefer a more natural-looking result rather than an obvious “overdone” appearance. A natural-looking facelift can make you look refreshed and rejuvenated without drastically altering your facial features. Also, many want a natural facelift to maintain their unique facial features and not completely change their appearance. Our skilled cosmetic surgeons use techniques that enhance a person’s natural beauty and provide subtle improvements that look like a natural progression of aging rather than an artificial result.

2. Body Lifts – Upper/Lower:

Body lifts have become more popular in recent years due to several factors. Firstly, the rise of extreme weight loss programs and bariatric surgery has increased the demand for procedures that address the excess skin and sagging that can occur after significant weight loss. Body lifts are particularly effective at removing excess skin and fat from multiple body areas, including the abdomen, hips, thighs, and buttocks.

Secondly, advances in surgical techniques have made body lifts safer and more effective than ever. Techniques such as the lower body lift, which involves removing excess skin and fat from the lower body in a single procedure, have become increasingly popular due to their effectiveness and efficiency.

Finally, the increasing emphasis on body positivity and self-confidence has led more people to seek body contouring procedures to help them feel more comfortable and confident in their skin. Body lifts can help patients achieve a more proportionate and youthful-looking body shape, which can in turn, improve their self-esteem and quality of life.

3. Body Contouring:

Body contouring procedures such as liposuction, tummy tucks, and mommy makeovers are in high demand. Patients are looking for more natural-looking results and personalized treatment plans. Body contouring provides the following benefits:

  • Improved body shape: Body contouring procedures can improve the body’s overall shape by removing excess fat or skin and improving the appearance of sagging or loose skin. This can lead to a more toned and youthful appearance.
  • Boost in self-confidence: Body contouring can help to boost a person’s self-confidence and self-esteem by improving the appearance of their body. This can have a positive impact on their personal and professional lives.
  • Post-weight loss: Body contouring is often sought out by people who have lost a significant amount of weight and are left with excess skin and stubborn fat deposits that cannot be eliminated through diet and exercise alone.
  • Non-invasive options: Non-invasive body contouring procedures, such as CoolSculpting and SculpSure, have gained popularity in recent years because they do not require surgery or anesthesia and have minimal downtime.
  • Customizable: Body contouring procedures can be customized to address specific areas of concern and achieve the desired results. Liposuction, tummy tucks, and thigh lifts can be tailored to a patient’s needs and goals.

4. Breast Augmentation:

Breast augmentation remains one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures. Women are seeking smaller, more natural-looking implants focusing on achieving a more balanced and proportional appearance. Trending for breast augmentation this year includes;

  • Fat transfer breast augmentation: This technique involves harvesting fat from other areas of the body, such as the abdomen or thighs, and injecting it into the breasts to increase their size and improve their shape.
  • Hybrid breast augmentation: This technique uses implants and fat transfer to achieve the desired breast size and shape. This can provide more natural-looking results and minimize the risks associated with traditional breast augmentation procedures.
  • Adjustable implants: These implants are filled with saline solution and can be adjusted after the surgery to achieve the desired size and shape. This can allow for more precise and customizable results.
  • Improved implant shapes and textures: Newer implant shapes and textures, such as teardrop-shaped and textured implants, can provide more natural-looking results and reduce the risk of implant displacement or rotation.

5. Anything “Butt Related” – All Butt Procedures

The most popular butt procedures trending this year are below.

  • Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL): This procedure involves removing fat from other body areas, such as the abdomen or thighs, and injecting it into the buttocks to enhance their size and shape.
  • Butt implants: This procedure involves surgically placing implants into the buttocks to increase their size and shape. Implants can be made of silicone or other materials and come in various shapes and sizes.
  • Butt lift: This procedure involves removing excess skin and fat from the buttocks to lift and tighten the area. This can improve the appearance of sagging or drooping buttocks.
  • Cellulite treatments: Cellulite is a common concern for many people who want to improve the appearance of their buttocks. Several non-surgical treatments are available to reduce cellulite’s appearance, such as radiofrequency treatments or laser therapy.
  • Thigh lift: A thigh lift can improve the appearance of the buttocks by removing excess skin and fat from the thighs and buttocks. This can improve the overall contour of the area and provide a more toned appearance.

6. Gender-affirming Surgeries:

7. Regenerative Medicine:

Regenerative medicine, including platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments and stem cell therapy, is used for facial rejuvenation and hair restoration. Here are some of the most popular regenerative treatments:

  • Stem cell therapy involves using stem cells, which can differentiate into different types of cells, to regenerate damaged tissues. Stem cells can be obtained from various sources, including bone marrow, adipose tissue, and umbilical cord blood.
  • Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy involves extracting a small amount of the patient’s blood, isolating the platelets, and injecting them back into the body to promote healing and regeneration.
  • Growth factor therapy: This involves using growth factors, which are proteins that promote cell growth and proliferation, to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes.
  • Prolotherapy: This involves injecting a solution of dextrose and other substances into damaged tissues to stimulate healing and regeneration.
  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT): This involves exposing the body to 100% oxygen at high pressure, which can stimulate the growth of new blood vessels and promote tissue repair.
  • Laser therapy involves using low-level laser light to stimulate cellular metabolism and promote tissue regeneration.

These treatments may treat various conditions, including musculoskeletal injuries, chronic pain, and degenerative diseases. Please inquire to determine the best course of treatment for your individual needs.

8. Customized and Personalized Treatments Plans

With advances in technology and techniques, cosmetic surgery is becoming more individualized, with customized treatment plans based on your unique needs and goals. Customized cosmetic surgery plans refer to a tailored approach to cosmetic surgery that considers an individual’s unique physical characteristics, goals, and preferences. Rather than following a one-size-fits-all approach, customized cosmetic surgery plans are designed to meet each patient’s specific needs and desires.

Creating your customized cosmetic surgery plan typically begins with completing a firmquote request. Once received, the surgeon will evaluate your physical characteristics, review your medical information, evaluate your photos or files submitted, and recommend a treatment plan tailored to your needs.

Some of the factors that may be taken into consideration when creating a customized cosmetic surgery plan include the following:

  1. Age
  2. Skin type and condition
  3. Body type and shape
  4. Overall health and medical history
  5. Desired outcomes and goals

We specialize in customized cosmetic surgery plans involving surgical and non-surgical procedures, such as breast augmentation, liposuction, Botox injections, or dermal fillers. The plan may include pre-operative preparation, such as skincare or diet and exercise recommendations, and post-operative care instructions to ensure optimal results.

Overall, customized cosmetic surgery plans are designed to provide patients with personalized and comprehensive care that addresses their individual needs and goals.

9. Fat Reduction:

Non-surgical fat reduction treatments such as CoolSculpting and SculpSure are becoming popular alternatives to traditional liposuction, offering patients a less invasive way to reduce fat in targeted areas. Here are some of the most common fat-reduction procedures:

  1. Liposuction: This procedure involves using a thin, hollow tube called a cannula to suction out fat cells from targeted body areas. It is typically used to treat the abdomen, thighs, hips, and arms.
  2. CoolSculpting: This procedure uses controlled cooling technology to freeze and destroy fat cells in targeted body areas. The dead fat cells are then naturally eliminated by the body over time.
  3. SculpSure: This procedure uses laser technology to heat and destroy fat cells in targeted body areas. The dead fat cells are then naturally eliminated by the body over time.
  4. UltraShape: This procedure uses ultrasound technology to break down fat cells in targeted areas of the body, which are then eliminated by the body over time.
  5. Kybella: This procedure involves injecting a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body, into targeted areas to destroy fat cells.

It is important to note that fat reduction procedures are not a substitute for a healthy diet and regular exercise. These treatments are best suited for individuals who have already achieved a healthy weight but have localized areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. Please inquire with us to determine the best course of treatment for your individual needs.

10. Ethnic Diversity:

There is an increasing demand for cosmetic surgery that respects the unique facial and body features of people from different ethnic backgrounds. Surgeons use specialized techniques to create more natural-looking results that enhance the patient’s natural beauty and cultural identity.

Here are some examples of cosmetic procedures that are commonly performed on individuals of diverse ethnic backgrounds:

  • Rhinoplasty:  involves reshaping the nose to improve its appearance and/or function. Ethnic rhinoplasty considers the unique anatomical features of different ethnic groups, such as the thickness of the skin, the width of the nostrils, and the shape of the nasal bridge.
  • Blepharoplasty: This procedure involves removing excess skin and fat from the eyelids to improve the appearance of the eyes. Ethnic blepharoplasty is often performed on individuals of Asian descent to address a condition called “monolid,” characterized by a lack of a visible crease in the upper eyelid.
  • Breast augmentation: This procedure involves using implants to increase the size and improve the shape of the breasts. Ethnic diversity breast augmentation considers the unique proportions and contours of different body types and breast shapes.
  • Liposuction: This procedure involves removing excess fat from targeted body areas. Ethnic diversity liposuction considers the different fat distribution patterns and body shapes of individuals from different ethnic backgrounds.
  • Brazilian Butt Lift: This procedure involves using fat grafting to increase the size and improve the shape of the buttocks. Ethnic diversity Brazilian Butt Lift considers the unique proportions and contours of different body types and buttock shapes.

Special Mention: Non-surgical Treatments: 

Non-surgical cosmetic procedures such as Botox, fillers, and laser treatments will always be popular due to their quick results, minimal downtime, and relatively low cost compared to surgical procedures. The best age for non-surgical treatments such as Botox, fillers, and laser treatments can vary depending on your specific concerns and goals. Generally, non-surgical treatments can be effective for clients in their late 20s to early 30s who notice the first signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles. These treatments can help prevent the formation of more pronounced wrinkles and improve the skin’s overall appearance. For older patients with more advanced signs of aging, non-surgical treatments are less effective and must be combined with more invasive procedures such as a facelift or brow lift for optimal results. The ideal age for these procedures will depend on various factors, including the patient’s overall health, skin quality, and desired outcomes.
