Plastic Surgery In 2015: WHAT’S COMING UP?

As 2015 is off to a rolling start, what will the new year bring in the world of plastic surgery? Medical advancements have made the process of improving one’s appearance safer and easier, encouraging more people than ever to seize the opportunity to feel more attractive.

Will this be the year you change your look and boost your confidence? Dallas, Texas, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Laurence Weider will work with you to help you reach your goals.

List of the trends expected to grow in the upcoming year:

* Combining functional and cosmetic procedures, such as nose surgery (rhinoplasty) that both makes the nose more attractive and helps the patient breathe better.

* “Stacking,” which means combining treatments — such as Botox and facial fillers — to increase their efficacy.

* Ever-present smart-phone cameras and photo-filled social sites such as Facebook have people evaluating their appearance — and taking steps to change what they don’t like.

* Seniors, who are becoming more active due to advances in medicine, want to look as young as they feel. A new study showing that cosmetic surgery is no more dangerous for seniors — even those over 80 — could encourage higher procedure rates.
