Although we’re only two months into the new year, 2016 has already shown signs of what people are pursuing the most in terms of plastic surgery. At Allure Plastic Surgery, our surgeons have personally observed these trends based on what patients are asking for when coming into our Miami practice. Read on to find out what these trends are.
Any type of plastic surgery that involves creating incisions in the skin is going to result in scarring of some sort. The plastic surgeons at Allure Plastic Surgery are careful to create the smallest incisions possible, placing them discreetly in places that can be concealed by natural creases or skin folds, or behind clothing. The amount of scarring left by a surgery depends on many individual factors, such as a person’s healing rate, skin pigmentation, age and genetics. Regardless of these factors, proper scar management is essential to minimize, or possibly even eliminate, scars. Here are some scar management tips to ensure that your scars will fade as quickly and completely as possible.
A recent report from the UK-based cosmetic group Transform noted a 73-percent increase in patient requests for plastic surgery to look like one of the Kardashians. This phenomena, dubbed the “Dash Effect,” (as in Kar-“dash”-ian), is not unique. Stars like Lindsay Lohan, Angelina Jolie, Demi Moore and Justin Beiber, among countless others, have been the inspiration for people’s plastic surgery procedures — often multiple procedures — over the past several years, all with the goal of looking like the patient’s favorite celebrity. With this trend gaining speed, the surgeons at Allure Plastic Surgery outline why it’s not a good idea to use plastic surgery to be a celebrity look-alike.
As we age, our faces and bodies undergo changes as a result of genetics, weight fluctuations, childbearing, stress and simply the passage of time. Because of this, adult women and men of every age group — especially those in their 30s, 40s and 50s — seek out plastic surgery as a way to keep them looking as youthful, fit and attractive as possible. The esteemed surgeons at Allure Plastic Surgery of Miami share which procedures are often the most popular among each age group.
More men are seeking plastic surgery to enhance their physical appearance and boost their self-confidence, according to recent numbers from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). It’s a rising trend we here at Allure Plastic Surgery have seen in our own Miami office. In this post, we take a look at the most common plastic surgery requests from our male patients.
Choosing a plastic surgeon for your procedure is as important as the surgery itself. Before making this important decision, consider the following criteria brought to you by the trusted team at Allure Plastic Surgery of Miami.
One of the most rewarding parts of having breast or body plastic surgery is that it opens up wardrobe options exponentially. Pieces or outfits that used to look silly suddenly fit better and even look flattering. A patient’s self-confidence skyrockets as she realizes she can take fashion risks that pay off.
Selfies have become a big part of social media conversations. If you have a Facebook, Instagram or Snapchat account, chances are good that you’ve sent and received a fair share of selfies with your friends and followers.
