What Beauty Trends Will Be Popular In 2021?

Plastic surgery procedures were on the rise for years before the pandemic that struck early last year. Much to our surprise, the field has thrived throughout the periodic lockdowns and mask mandates. It does not seem as though interest in plastic surgery and other beauty treatments will diminish anytime soon. What has begun to change from previous years is the trends that drive plastic surgery consultations.

Why the Shift?

For several years, plastic surgery trends revolved around the body. We had the “year of the butt” that lasted quite some time and involved thousands of buttocks augmentation procedures. Body contouring was also a driving trend for many years. Adults underwent liposuction, abdominoplasty, and other lifts and tucks to sculpt their bodies. Last year, we saw a massive shift. While body contouring continues to achieve outstanding results, we’re seeing more interest in facial rejuvenation than we have in years. There are two primary reasons.

One of the big changes that occurred as a result of the novel coronavirus was that many people shifted into a work-from-home situation. Working from home lent more flexibility to daily scheduling. People had time to schedule beauty treatments or plastic surgery because they had more time to recover at home. The work-from-home situation also put people in front of a screen far more often than they were used to. Video conferencing allowed us to see our coworkers, but it also allowed us to see ourselves in real-time, and that led to the identification of beauty goals. Perhaps you’ve made a few of your own in the past year.

Trending Beauty Treatments

As we saw in 2020, we expect trends to remain focused on facial rejuvenation for the remainder of this year, too. Treatments that are commonly sought include:

  • Eyelid rejuvenation. The eyes are the primary communicating force of the face these days, thanks to necessary mask-wearing. Eyelid rejuvenation can lift heavy eyelids, eliminate undereye bags, and smooth wrinkles. This may be achieved with BOTOX and other injections or it may be achieved with blepharoplasty. Both options have their advantages and disadvantages. A consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon can help you weigh them.
  • The lower face may be covered when we go out but it is center stage during those video conferences! Facelifts accounted for a vast majority of plastic surgery consultations last year. This procedure can eliminate deep creases around the nose and mouth, refine the jawline, and give more curvature to the midface. In our Pottsville and Hazleton offices, patients also have the option of a thread lift for minimally-invasive enhancement.
  • Lip Augmentation. The shape of the lips has become a topic of interest for men and women who are now seeing themselves more frequently than they have in previous years. This trend has morphed somewhat since it first emerged. People are no longer seeking dramatically overfilled lips. Today’s lip augmentation looks and feels soft and kissable.

We have several ways to help you feel your best in 2021. Contact us today to schedule your consultation.
