Each year, plastic surgeons refine their techniques and create new procedures that result in amazing changes to the human body. From minimally invasive dermal fillers to comprehensive “mommy makeovers” and “daddy do-overs,” plastic surgeons have an incredible number of tools at their disposal to improve a patient’s appearance and self-confidence.
Every few years it seems like there’s a new “it” procedure that’s very popular, and popularity often ebbs and flows over time. With a variety of procedures waiting for FDA approval in the next few years, it’s likely that the most popular procedures each year will continue to change alongside industry advancements.
Some of the noticeable trends in the last few years have been the increase in popularity of fillers, as well as the interest in plastic surgery from male patients.
These developments have influenced what procedures have become most popular.
Botox Remains Eternally Popular
The reason Botox is so popular is because it’s effective and doesn’t require an actual surgical procedure. Popular with women for many years, Botox has also become a popular consideration for men seeking facial plastic surgery. For men who aren’t yet ready to undergo surgery, Botox and other fillers are a common stepping-stone to reduce the appearance of aging.

One of the interesting procedures that may gain approval soon is Botox that doesn’t require a needle. The needleless version would feature a peptide technology that would do its job with a simple topical application to the skin. Although it might be nice to see Botox cream in your bathroom cabinet, it’s still going to be a treatment that requires a trip to a medical professional.
Daddy Do-Overs and Plastic Surgery for Men
Although men are still very much in the minority as far as plastic surgery is concerned, each year brings greater numbers of men to doctors for various cosmetic surgery procedures. Botox has become quite popular for working men who wish to appear younger in a competitive workplace, and increasing cultural acceptance of cosmetic surgery for men has also encouraged men to seek out the advice of a plastic surgeon.
The rise of the daddy do-over (similar to the mommy makeover) has created a demand for a variety of treatments like abdominal sculpting and liposuction, Male breast reductions and male neck lifts have also become increasingly popular. From laser treatments to rhinoplasty, men have started seeking out a wide array of plastic surgery solutions.
What’s on the Horizon for Plastic Surgery?
Plastic surgeons have developed some absolutely incredible options in the past few years including non-surgical versions of facelifts and rhinoplasty (nose job). These non-surgical options use fillers to create a different look for the nose and face without the need to undergo traditional surgery.
Not all patients are suitable candidates for these procedures, but it’s possible to use a liquid facelift to fix some irregularities on the nose, such as removing the hump on the bridge of the nose that many people don’t like.
Other fascinating advancements in cosmetic surgery that doctors may offer in the near future include injections that melt fat, as well as a treatment for excessive underarm sweat. A variety of futuristic techniques are currently under consideration by the FDA, so some of these procedures may be available very soon.
