It is pretty easy to access the general data regarding the most popular plastic surgeries in the world or in a particular country. According to the data released by The International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS), top 5 plastic surgery procedures performed worldwide in 2017 are breast augmentation, liposuction, eyelid surgery (eyelift or blepharoplasty), rhinoplasty and abdominoplasty (tummy tuck).
Instead of general list of most popular plastic surgery procedures, we generally seek guidance in Hollywood, expecting that celebrities will know better which plastic surgery is more effective and long-lasting than the others. Additionally, most common plastic surgery may not be the best one – the cost also matters and many ‘regular’ clients of plastic surgery clinics are limited by this factor more than they are willing to admit.
Based on this, we have created a list of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in Hollywood for you to take a look and get some inspiration.
Breast Augmentation as the most popular one!
Breast enlargement is on the top of the list of most popular plastic surgeries, be it in general or among Celebrities in the USA. However, the size of new breasts after breast augmentation has changed over time, together with methods.
It is a general trend that women deciding for breast augmentation lower their expectations with regard to the size. Instead of large breast implants, women choose more moderate sizes since they look much more natural.
More than that, increasing number of women in general and in Hollywood decide for methods of breast enlargement others than breast implants. For instance, they can choose a fat transfer breast augmentation, to have a new big breast with fat taken from other body parts such as buttocks.
The result of the surgery depends on many factors, including the size, shape and method and material you choose. However, the general result of breast augmentation is perkier, fuller breasts that are more symmetrical and appealing. Most women state that their clothing and bras fit better, and many feel a lasting boost to their self-confidence after their breast augmentation surgery.
Breast augmentation combined with liposuction is a rising trend and promises often more natural effects. Still, many women prefer silicone breast implants but instead of round implants, they can choose a more anatomically suitable teardrop implant. It should be noted here that, while breast augmentation keeps its popularity, other breast surgeries such as breast lift and breast reduction surgery are also highly chosen by the celebrities.
Botox and Fillers
If we consider both plastic surgery and plastic surgery procedures not involving a cut with a scalpel, Botox is the number 1 among most popular plastic surgery procedures. It becomes even more popular in Hollywood, where all signs of aging are met with ostracism on behalf of the community and fans. For this reason, both male and female Hollywood stars are crazy about Botox injections, repeating the Botox procedure at regular intervals.
Apart from Botox injections, in recent years there was an increase in the use of fillers which serve as cheek and lip enhancers. Botox and dermal fillers are both used to treat wrinkles on the face. Each treatment is made via injection. Although they seem alike, both options have slightly different uses. Botox is a muscle relaxer made from bacteria. Dermal fillers on the other hand, come in different forms, they’re also injectable. Some fillers are temporary and used mostly for soft tissues in the face along the smile lines.
Liposuction always occupies the list of most popular plastic surgeries in Hollywood. It is a great way of dealing with excessive fat tissue and especially with so-called ‘stubborn fat’, not giving up to even the most rigorous diets and training programs. Liposuction may be a procedure on its own rights or a part of a larger plastic surgery. Liposuction is often combined with fat transfer to breasts or other body parts, becoming an element of breast augmentation efforts or other most popular plastic surgery procedures. Apart from liposuction, there is also a popular cosmetic surgery procedure called abdominoplasty (known as “tummy tuck”). Considering the abdomen part of the body, tummy tuck and liposuction are two different surgical procedures that aim to change the appearance of it. Both procedures claim to make your stomach appear fitter, tighter, and flatter.
Fat grafting may take place a long time after liposuction, so doctors often store fat removed in the liposuction procedure for their Hollywood clients.
A nose job is also a big thing among celebrities in America. It is for a very simple reason – while many other defects of our body are possible to fight with using diets, healthy lifestyle, massages and non-invasive methods, we do not choose a nose we are born with. Additionally, since we are ‘sentenced’ to deal with it, our nose often becomes a matter of obsession. Rhinoplasty, as a popular nose surgery, promises us salvage from this drama, though it requires a lot of skill and artistic touch to it, unlike some other most popular plastic surgery procedures.
The facelift also should not be a surprise in the Hollywood list of most popular plastic surgeries. It is performed for removing sagging skin, flatten deep folds, and lifting the facial tissues to help a patient look younger, and fresher.
Instead of a number of small procedures such as Botox injections, fillers, and others, some celebrities prefer to have one facelift done and do not worry about sagging and imperfect skin for a few years to go. Additionally, in Hollywood, a facelift in a way that hides almost totally the possible scars. It is not surprising then that it is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures.
