Plastic Surgery Trends

Plastic surgery has never been more popular than it is today. Due to improvements in existing techniques, and innovative new procedures being constantly introduced, each year new trends emerge bigger than ever before.

So, as we enter a new year, what’s in store for plastic surgery in 2023? Here’s the top predictions for the top treatments expected to be carried out…

Breast augmentation

It is no surprise to see breast augmentation on the list. This popular procedure has remained one of the most performed plastic surgeries for decades and it shows no signs of slowing down. In 2022, the procedure overtook rhinoplasty as the cosmetic surgery of choice.

The techniques used to perform breast augmentation have improved drastically over the years. These days it provides patients with a more natural, fuller look.

Fillers set to be replaced by more permanent trends

Due to their fast results and minimally invasive technique, fillers became extremely popular in the past decade. However, while they can be highly effective, the results are only temporary. This year, patients are expected to move away from temporary treatments such as fillers, moving towards more permanent solutions instead.

These treatments have already started to decline in popularity. Instead, patients are choosing brow lifts, eyelid lifts, and facelifts for more dramatic results. Another reason fillers are falling out of favour is because they provide unnatural results. Facelifts and other surgical methods focus on providing a more natural look.


Liposuction is one of the most popular plastic surgeries performed worldwide. In 2023, clinics are expecting to receive more requests for this popular procedure, particularly from men.

The number of men choosing to undergo liposuction has risen dramatically in recent years. Improvements within the procedure have made it safer and less painful. There are also liposuction alternatives being used to help deliver the same results.

While it can help you to achieve a toned physique, liposuction is not a weight loss surgery. Instead, it aims to remove small pockets of fat that don’t shift with diet and exercise alone.

Labial reduction

The final trend for 2023 is predicted to be an increase in genital surgery. Labial reduction, or a Labiaplasty, that aims to change the size or shape of the labia, has become especially popular.

These are some of the main plastic surgery trends for 2023. Whichever procedure you are considering having done, it is crucial you choose a reliable and experienced surgeon. All cosmetic surgeries carry some level of risk, and you need to understand the dangers before going under the knife.
