Five new popular cosmetic procedures

Many of the most popular and trending procedures in cosmetic surgery have been traditionally requested for many years. However, over time new options are added and recently some have found a lot more favour with consumers. In this article we will be focusing on 5 of these newer cosmetic procedures that have proved popular..

3D Facelift

3D technology has enhanced many areas of life and cosmetic surgery is just another example. We are talking about something that not too long ago would not have been possible, as it’s only in recent years 3D tech has come on in leaps and bounds.

A 3D facelift pulls fat and tissue from the inside area of the lower part of the face to the cheekbonea. The idea is that this step will add volume to the face but not appear as severe as a traditional face lift, so the changes should be more subtle. A facelift of the 3D kind will usually be performed under local anesthesia.

Lip Lifts

Lips have been a particularly popular body part to focus on in regards to cosmetic surgery procedures, hence the popularity of lip lifts.

The idea behind a lip lift is that it shortens the space between the top of the lip and the bottom of the nose but raises the edges of the lips. This should result in the mouth having a more defined look. This procedure can be performed under local anesthesia and in less then one hour. Note that these are a permanent plastic surgery procedure.


The name of this procedure certainly stands out. It is a modern version of the more traditional nose job. It involves the use of a probe that emits ultrasonic energy to reshape nasal bones without damaging any soft tissue or cartilage. Compared to the more traditional version of this procedure known as rhinoplasty, Rhino-sculpture is considered safer and has a shorter recovery time.

Hybrid Breast Augmentation

This cosmetic procedure aims to result in more natural looking breasts then some of the older breast enhancement surgeries on offer. It is a type of breast enlargement that combines breast implants with liposuction, a technique that is used to remove fat where it is not wanted so that it can be injected into the breast tissue.

Once again this method has fewer risks with faster recovery then the traditional equivalent, whilst resulting in breasts that appear more natural then the results of the older methods.

EmSculpt Body Contouring

This contouring method is aimed at people with lower body mass index who are seeking to reduce fat in parts of their body that are hard to reach, whilst improving their muscle definition. It works by using highly-focused electromagnetic energy to initiate muscle contractions. This should help to tone muscle as well as break down fat on the abdomen and buttocks area.

This is only a small selection of quite a few newer cosmetic procedures that have been proving popular. You can be sure that the next few years will see many more new entries, as advancing technology allows for new procedures to become possible, or brings in modern alternatives as an option instead of their  classic counterparts.
