New Trends on the Plastic Surgery Horizon

For some people, staying on top of the next big thing is a way of life. From the latest iPhone to the newest designer threads, these trendsetters always seem to know what’s in and what’s out. That includes today’s hottest plastic and cosmetic surgery procedures! Whether you’re one of these trendsetters or just aspire to be one, here’s a quick look at some of the cutting-edge procedures coming soon to a clinic near you.

Skin Tightening

A new procedure that uses ultrasound waves to lift and tighten the skin is already garnering rave reviews in Orange County, California, a hotspot for plastic surgery trends. This FDA-approved treatment is designed to target sagging skin on the chin, neck, brow and décolletage.

Restylane Lift

This new treatment for hands is already making headlines for its popularity with the 40-plus crowd. The Restylane Lift uses the dermal filler Restylane (which is made of hyaluronic acid) to smooth out imperfections in the skin and fill in wrinkles, fade sunspots and seamlessly blend away veins and tendons that may be making your hands look older than they should.


Cryotherapy is the new liposuction, but instead of making an incision and using a cannula to suck away the fat, a device sits outside the body and freezes the fat cells. It takes about six months to get the full effect, but it really works, and best of all you can go about your daily life immediately after each treatment

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet rich plasma doesn’t sound very “cosmetic,” but it has real cosmetic benefits. It’s done by extracting the patient’s blood, spinning it in a centrifuge, extracting some beneficial platelets and growth factors, and then injecting it back into the skin. One PRP treatment is even being called the “Vampire Facial” by some. It uses a combination of PRP and microdermabrasion to boost cell turnover and create a tight, smooth, youthful glow on the face.
