As cosmetic surgery becomes more and more popular among both women and men, different trends arise year to year. Whether you’re looking to enhance your look after weight loss, give yourself a boost of self-confidence, or even test out the cosmetic waters with a quick nonsurgical treatment, these plastic surgery trends of 2019 could be just the ticket.

1. Body Contouring

Body contouring procedures can enhance the shape and silhouette of your body. They remain some of the most popular plastic surgeries year after year. 2019 will likely see a continued rise in popularity of tummy tuck and liposuction combination procedures. While a tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, can address loose skin and separated muscle tissue, it won’t remove stubborn belly fat on its own.

That’s why adding liposuction to your tummy tuck can really help you see the most comprehensive results. The C.L.A.S.S.® tummy tuck includes liposuction and eliminates the need for post-surgical drains, streamlining your recovery and improving your overall results.

The drain-free tummy tuck requires a bit more surgical skill and precision, but it can make your recovery that much easier.

2. Modest Breast Implants

Breast implants are another popular procedure that makes it to the top of the trends list nearly every year. But we do see changes in the look that women are going for each year. In 2019, we expect to see more of the trend toward smaller, more modest-looking implants that pair well with some of the latest fashion styles, like plunging necklines and very sheer fabrics.

If you’re considering body contouring and breast enhancement, a mommy makeover might be the most effective solution. In a mommy makeover, you can pick and choose which procedures you’d like to include, and in many cases, these can be combined into a single surgery. The most common procedures included in a mommy makeover are abdominoplasty, liposuction and breast augmentation or breast lift.

3. Plastic Surgery for Men

More and more men are opting for plastic surgery procedures to help them boost their self-confidence, ditch the dad bod and look and feel younger and more energetic. While facial cosmetic procedures like eyelid surgery and brow lifts have been some of the top plastic surgeries for men in previous years, we are now seeing an increase in body contouring procedures for men.

Liposuction is often a go-to treatment for men who want to enhance their workout results. Stubborn pockets of fat in areas like love handles and belly bulges can be difficult to get rid of through diet and exercise alone, making liposuction a popular choice.

Additionally, many men who have achieved a substantial weight loss goal turn to abdominoplasty to remove excess skin and help to tighten abdominal muscles.

4. Nonsurgical Treatments

Nonsurgical treatments continue to rise in popularity with each new year. Whether you’re not quite ready for a surgical procedure or you’d like to further enhance your plastic surgery results, nonsurgical options can be a good choice.

VelaShape™ III, for instance, uses a combination of infrared and radiofrequency waves to help dissolve unwanted fat while also smoothing the texture of your skin. One of the biggest benefits of going the nonsurgical route is you won’t have to worry about taking any time off work to see great results.

Plastic surgery trends can help you get an idea of which procedure(s) you might be interested in, but the right choice for you will depend on your unique goals and body shape.
