3 Plastic Surgeries Used by Celebrities
In the past, celebrities were quick to dispel plastic surgery rumors, but more and more are coming forward and praising their physicians. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 1.7 million plastic surgeries were performed in the United States in 2015 and hundreds of thousands chose one of these three procedures: breast augmentation, nose reshaping or liposuction. The trend for 2016 seems to still favor these surgeries, but lesser-known cosmetic surgeries are growing in number thanks to celebrities.
If you’re interested in plastic surgery, our board-certified plastic surgeon can help you decide which procedure is best for you.
Three of the most recent celebrity-endorsed plastic surgeries are:
1. Lip Augmentation
Kylie Jenner gave women across the country a look at what lip augmentation can do. She not only admitted she had work done, but advertised her fuller lips. Lip augmentation can be done using injectables including JUVEDERM™ or fat grafting. Injectables require repeat sessions every three to four months. Lip implants such as PermaLip™ are a great way to give you permanently plump lips.
2. Buttock Lifts
Another Kardashian-induced plastic surgery craze is the buttock lift which can be accomplished through liposuction and fat grafting. A buttock augmentation or a lower body lift can give you a bigger, but contoured, bottom. Dr. Angelchik in Glendale can give your whole lower half a lift by tightening your stomach, thighs and buttocks.
3. Facial Fillers & Fat Grafting
Over the last 15 years, the trend has moved from tightening and pulling back skin with a face lift to filling in sunken areas of the face to give you a more youthful appearance. Collagen production slows down as you age and can accentuate growing wrinkles and lines. Injectable fillers or fat transfers can give your face volume and also fill in scarring.
While breast augmentation, rhinoplasty and liposuction are still at the top of the plastic surgery pyramid, celebrity-advertised procedures are seeing a dramatic increase.
