Plastic Surgery Trend Forecast for 2015
Apr 15, 2015

Popular Plastic Surgery in 2015

As leading New Jersey plastic surgeons, Drs. Gary Breslow and Jordan Farkas keep a finger on the pulse of their industry. They stay up-to-date on the latest plastic surgery trends and technology, so they can continue to offer patients the safest and most effective treatment. Because of their breadth of knowledge, the doctors also enjoy speculating on what is to come in the future.

Here, they share a forecast of plastic surgery trends we will likely see in 2015.

Demand for Buttock Augmentation Will Continue to Skyrocket

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) recently released data showing a 98 percent increase in buttock augmentation procedures from 2013 to 2014. Based on this information and current pop culture influences (e.g., Meghan Trainor’s hit “All About That Bass” and well-endowed stars like Iggy Azalea and Jennifer Lopez), Drs. Breslow and Farkas believe the demand for buttock augmentation will continue to rise.

Selfies Will Spur Requests for Plastic Surgery

Last year, the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery reported that its surgeon members were seeing more patients requesting facial plastic surgery based on their “selfies.” Selfies make us more aware of our appearance and tend to magnify our perceived flaws (e.g., double chin, saggy neck skin, undereye bags). Drs. Breslow and Farkas would not be surprised if more patients request corrective facial surgery — such as eyelid surgery and neck lift — based on their gallery of selfies.

New Double Chin Treatment Emerges

The FDA just approved a new injectable product designed to non-surgically treat a double chin. Known as ATX-101, the drug has performed well in clinical trials, showing that it can successfully melt submental fat away. Drs. Breslow and Farkas predict that the treatment will see widespread use in plastic surgery offices around the country.

Minimally Invasive Procedures Maintain Popularity

More than 13.9 million minimally invasive cosmetic procedures were performed in 2014, and Drs. Breslow and Farkas speculate the number will continue to rise. Millions of people enjoy the cosmetic benefits of Botox, dermal fillers, chemical peels and microdermabrasion. These treatments are relatively quick and require very little downtime (if any) yet produce noticeable rejuvenating results.

Closing the Loop on Breast Cancer

The 2014 ASPS statistics also showed an increase in reconstructive procedures, including breast reconstruction. This is encouraging news because studies show women that have breast reconstruction enjoy a better self-image and quality of life. Ideally, every breast cancer patient will receive information about her reconstructive options and make the best choice for her needs.
