‘Snapchat Dysmorphia’, the trend of people getting plastic surgery to more closely resemble their social media filters, recently took the Internet by storm, but there’s another, more subtle movement surfacing in facial plastic surgery. Gone are the days of plumped-up puckers, ski-sloped noses, and overly injected frozen or puffy faces. Today, facial plastic surgery is about looking like the best version of yourself -refreshed, relaxed and natural.
In fact, one-third of facial plastic surgeons report that the “fear of looking unnatural” is a top concern among patients today, according to the latest annual survey by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS).
Real life evidence of the trend: Kylie Jenner recently ditched her signature lip fillers. If history repeats itself, we can expect Millennials and beyond to take this as a cue to shy away from overtly “done” looks.
The annual AAFPRS survey also reveals that the most important consideration patients make when deciding to have a cosmetic procedure is finding a doctor they can trust AND who will deliver natural looking results.
Topping the list of facial plastic surgery procedures that restore natural beauty are:
- Eyelid lifts that rejuvenate tired looking eyes
- Neuromodulators and fillers that are injected in ways and amounts that create natural youthful-looking results
“We’re seeing more patients than ever before who are under thirty and want to start young with minor tweaks in order to forestall the need for larger procedures later. Patients should be careful to choose an experienced injector and a board-certified facial plastic surgeon who specializes in the face, head and neck to ensure the most successful, natural-looking outcomes,” shares AAFPRS president and facial plastic surgeon William H. Truswell, MD.
