Cosmetic Surgeons List Top Trends For 2008

Share Article

January is a time for reflecting on the past, and using it to plan for the future. While the common resolutions of dieting and spending more time with family will always remain on the list, an increasing number of people are adding a new resolution this year: looking and feeling better about their bodies by utilizing cosmetic surgery.

Cosmetic plastic surgery continues to grow and be an exciting option for today's population that wishes to hang on to youth and vibrancy for as long as possible. With nearly 12 million Americans choosing cosmetic procedures in 2006, and the demand rising as new less invasive procedures become better known, 2008 promises to be a booming year for cosmetic surgery.

Two of today's top cosmetic surgeons, Dr Randolph Robinson and Dr Jeremy Williams, offer advice on procedures that continue to be in demand today, and what they're predictions are for the coming year.

"People are taking better care of themselves today than ever before," stated Dr Robinson. "Because the Internet and television have made plastic surgery an every day topic, people know their options, and are demanding the best when it comes to choices and results."

This year Drs. Robinson and Williams are advising the top trends in cosmetic surgery to be:

Mommy Makeovers
Because women are having children later in life, the desire to look and feel as young as possible will continue to rise. As women complete their families, they desire to return to their active lifestyle and their pre-pregnancy shape.

"A mommy makeover is more than sculpting the body to improve a woman's looks; it's also about restoring her youthful personality and giving her the energy she had in the past," states Dr Williams. "A mommy makeover combines two or more procedures, and is customized for the desires and the lifestyle of each woman."

Breast Augmentation
Over the past few years, breast augmentation has gone through a variety of changes, and will continue to do so. A new silicone high strength gel implant, or gummy bear implant, is made of a gummy consistency, is more solid and holds its shape better than the saline implants. The gummy consistency, similar to the feel and consistency of a candy gummy bear, also decreases the likelihood of rippling, and provides greater safety because the silicone is less likely to escape from the shell if it were to rupture.

Harmonic Facelifts
Facelifts will continue to grow this year as more options become available. The popularity of reality shows and lifestyle facelifts will continue to make facelifts one of the most desired procedures. The introduction of the Harmonic Facelift will give people long term results associated with a more traditional facelift, with the speed and ease of using ultrasonic technology.

"People want fast results. As a cosmetic surgeon, I demand safe, long-lasting results," stated Dr Robinson. "I have full confidence in the new Harmonic Facelift procedure, and know it will offer far superior results compared to some of the quick, in-and-out procedures on the market today."

Non-Invasive Treatments
Non-invasive cosmetic procedures like Juvederm, Botox and Restylane will continue to grow as the demand for "lunchtime" procedures rises. These non-surgical procedures help hydrate your skin and replenishing its natural volume. They are great for your laugh lines and smile lines, and can produce lasting results over a short period of time.
