Plastic Surgery trends are more than fads or fashions. Here in Sarasota, with our active lifestyles, the overall beauty trend is healthy and active.

Trending for plastic surgery in 2020, we see the evolution of natural, easy, beauty and confidence in Sarasota and beyond.  In general, our predictions for the decade agree not only with medical experts but with some of the glossier beauty experts like Allure magazine. They are both predicting we will see “more fillers, Botox, and noninvasive body contouring than ever before.”

Fads and fashions come and go each decade. This is thanks to social media almost every month of the year.  However, we are observing a classic, timeless beauty that is shining through for the new decade. And we see this to be especially true in geographical locations that encourage a healthy, active lifestyle.

So, let’s take a look at the Timeless Trends we see for 2020 in our first part of a two-part blog introducing you to the plastic surgery trends of a new decade.

Plastic Surgery Trend Number One:  Botox

As we begin 2020, we are certain the natural but undoubtedly glamorous appeal of Botox will only get better.  “It’s really the era of minimally invasive medical aesthetic procedures,” says Lara Devgan. Lara is a board-certified plastic surgeon in New York City.” She added, “I think that is not only because of low downtime, lower cost, and lower invasiveness.” “…also because there are lower stigma and lower barriers to entry.”

Botox:  Number One Key to the Pre-juvenation Trend

Recently, Allure magazine also counted Botox as their number one trend for 2020.  Likewise, they grouped Injectables, lasers, and skin resurfacing procedures together under the Botox banner of Number One Trend. These procedures are fast and they give immediate—or almost immediate results.

Botox and associated fillers have become conventional health and beauty aids. Did you know that four-fifths of all treatments performed by facial plastic surgeons in 2018 were cosmetic, non-surgical procedures?

The Data Behind the Trend

Plastic Surgery Trends for 2020 Reflect Healthy Beauty that Transcends Fashion and Fad.

Likewise, “In 2018, 72 percent of facial plastic surgeons saw an increase in cosmetic surgery or injectables in patients under age 30.”

This is important because it is a remarkable increase in younger clients over 2017. Even in that year, we at Altiora and other plastic surgeons noticed a large influx of younger patients. “In fact, this year’s survey reveals a 24 percent increase in cosmetic surgery or injectables in patients under age 30 since 2013 (58 percent to 72 percent).”

Phillip R. Langsdon, AAFPRS President has stated, “This points to the larger “pre-juvenation” trend with more and more patients wanting to remain youthful rather than turn back the clock on signs of aging later.”

Plastic Surgery Trend Number Two:  All About the Angles: Jawline Elegance

Many experts are noticing a new area of facial beauty: an elegant, sharp jawline.  Perhaps taking countless “selfie” portraits accounts for this new discovery in feminine beauty. Filler can improve the average angle of the aging jawline.  “Ava Shamban is a dermatologist based in Los Angeles. She says with unwavering confidence that filler for the jawline will be the most popular procedure for the year. She said, “The jawline is a big thing.”

Likewise, Allure reports that Dendy Engleman, a fellow dermatologist in New York City, agrees. “Everyone is so hyperaware of every angle when we’re taking so many more images of ourselves,” she says. And yes, your cosmetic surgeon can utilize filler to mimic that angle.

Dr. Shamban stated that the most beautiful angle for a lady’s jawline is about 125 degrees. If math is not your thing, think of the elegant jawline of Rihanna or Angelina Jolie. To mimic that angle, your cosmetic surgeon might “fill out the back of a client’s jaw to achieve their desired angle and visually separate the jaw from the neck. There’s little to no downtime, but swelling and soreness can endure around the injection site the day of the procedure.”

Plastic Surgery Trend Number 3:  Shaping the Chin

It’s interesting that not only women but also men have noticed the angles in their faces. And artistically, we know there must be a balance.  So if the jawline is noticeable as a new beauty point, then so also is the chin.  No one wants their chin to recede into their neck.  Again, there are new techniques to inject filler along the bone and build out the chin in proportion to the face.

Trend Number 4:  Less Invasive Techniques for Body Contouring

Body contouring in previous decades meant tummy-tucks or liposuction. However, 2020 will expand the nonsurgical category of body contouring.  We believe we will see more options that are nonsurgical procedures.

Plastic Surgery Techniques Will Be Less Invasive in 2020

Timeless Beauty and Health Will Be the Hallmark of 2020.

Non-surgical smoothing, shaping, and fat-busting techniques include:

  • temperature-based fat reduction,
  • skin tightening,
  • muscle enhancements,
  • and even cellulite-reducing injectables

We believe you will be hearing more about all of these techniques. We have seen these non-invasive techniques grow in popularity over the last few years. And we expect these technologies will continue to expand your options in 2020.
