Today, more and more people are spending their time and money on their appearance and wellbeing. But, a few trends, in particular, took over 2020. In this article, Dr. Julian De Silva shares 10 facial cosmetic procedures that have been extremely popular among patients in 2020.
Too much filler looks inflated and unnatural, puffiness around the lower eyelids or overfilled lips are common areas that give a fake appearance. Some days we dissolve 4-5patients fillers and the start with a blank canvass, we utilise the golden ratio to naturally enhance your face observing more feminine areas that can be enhanced and utilised to beautify your face. A common area is the cheek that can be conservatively shaped to give a more of a curvaceous natural cheek (termed the ogee curve) giving a more feminine and attractive appearance.
Millennials, in particular, are opting for gentle facial optimizations with dermal fillers and neurotoxins rather than a full makeover. Patients are choosing a little filler once or twice a year so that they can look their best all year round without makeup.
Younger patients are also opting for Botox as a preventative measure. A light amount of the neuromodulator has been shown to have anti-aging benefits while also addressing mild aesthetic issues without the need for more invasive surgery.
Everyone’s lips are different and many are investing more into achieving the perfect contour. Dr. De Silva offers custom lip augmentations designed to meet his patients’ needs – whether this is through surgery or the use of fillers.
Botox is now being used for more than aesthetic results. Patients are opting for Botox to help with temporomandibular joint disorders as the neurotoxin can be used to weaken the main teeth-grinding muscles for a short amount of time. This also leaves patients with a more defined and slimmer jawline.
This year, patients have combined minor surgeries such as blepharoplasty with non-surgical techniques such as fillers and Botox to optimize their eyes. These eye-opening procedures have provided patients with a more relaxed and better-rested appearance.
Facelifts have been popular for years but with new and innovative techniques on the rise, many are opting for mini facelifts and facelifts done with signature techniques that require minimal downtime and recovery.
The traditional nose job has now fallen second in line as non-surgical rhinoplasty takes centre stage. Many patients are opting for this non-surgical alternative for smaller alterations as the procedure requires little to no downtime and comes with fewer risks.
More men are investing in cosmetic procedures to address imperfections. Today, a personalised approach to rhinoplasty means that men don’t have to worry about being left with a more feminine nose. Male rhinoplasty is on the rise and this could give way to a bigger variety of procedures tailored to the male facial form.
As the trend towards wearing less makeup grows, women are opting for long-lasting or permanent procedures that provide them with the same feature-enhancing effects. Cheek implants are growing in popularity with many choosing this procedure as a way to rid themselves of their blusher.
