What Is the Trend in Plastic Surgery 2024? 

Patricia Villate | February 8, 2024 | Posted in News

There are a few emerging trends in plastic surgery for 2024, including the rise of menopause makeovers, a preference for smaller breast implants or breast lifts, and skin tightening procedures following weight loss medication treatments, e.g., Ozempic. Every year brings new trends with exciting innovations in plastic surgery. Now that there is far less stigma surrounding plastic surgery with more people undergoing procedures—people are vocal about what they want. 

Ultimately, don’t allow current trends to convince you to undergo a surgical procedure. Instead, choose an appropriate and effective treatment plan for your needs and goals. Along those lines, it’s crucial to select a board-certified plastic surgeon who treats you as an individual. 

What’s a Menopause Makeover?

The mommy makeover has long been popular among women interested in correcting some of the effects of pregnancy and childbirth, but now the menopause makeover is just beginning to emerge. 

It’s natural for a woman’s body to change as her hormone levels do, and during menopause, there are significant changes in hormone levels. Women going through menopause often develop fat deposits in the upper chest, upper arms, and the area in the front of the armpit. This can happen even with a healthy diet and exercise plan. 

A menopause makeover can target these fat deposits with liposuction. At the same time, many older women also opt for a breast lift and tummy tuck for an “aging gracefully” appearance. 

Meet the New Breast Implants 

One of the most popular plastic surgery trends–breast augmentation–has been declining in popularity. When women do opt for them, they’ve been requesting smaller breast implants. In fact, many women have been requesting breast reductions or the removal of breast implants. 

The trend is toward a more athletic-looking body and the ability to step out sans bra if desired. Furthermore, plastic surgeons note that some of the women who might have previously requested a breast augmentation are now opting instead for a breast lift. As a result, breast lifts are positively exploding in popularity in 2024. 

You’ve Got an Ozempic Body, But What About Your Loose Skin?

Being overweight can lead to numerous health problems, and losing weight is often recommended by doctors and desired by patients. In 2024, many patients are turning to injected weight loss drugs, such as Ozempic and Wegovy, which have the potential to cause very rapid weight loss. 

However, one of the problems is that it leaves behind a lot of loose, sagging skin. The loose skin is most noticeable in the face and the buttocks but can occur anywhere, like the thighs and midsection. 

Plastic surgeons can treat excess, sagging skin through procedures like a tummy tuck, which tightens the tissue at the mid-section and removes excess skin. Skin tightening procedures are expected to be more prevalent in 2024 and beyond.
