We have to admit that we get a little excited when we see what’s new and trendy in the beauty world. But, that doesn’t mean that we recommend every treatment for every patient. Not every person will look good with the big, bold Instagram brows that are having a moment (though some people look amazing with them). Trends come and go, but we think it’s important to know which trends will work for you and which ones you should let pass you by.
When it comes to plastic surgery, trends can sometimes refer to new technologies, treatments, or even a new way of utilizing an older method. That’s what we’re looking at today: plastic surgery trends that affect our clients so we can be ready when you come looking for the best new treatments. Keep reading for some interesting highlights.
Boost of Beauty
More and more patients are opting for fillers, and we can’t say we’re surprised. Dermal fillers are getting better and more natural-looking, while many physicians are getting better at applying them in natural ways. We’re especially excited in the advancements of fillers, because the more options we have the better results we can give you! If you’re looking for a stronger chin or sharper cheekbones, a firmer filler will work best. Interested in a juicier pout? Softer fillers will help those lips look naturally luscious.
Fillers are also a great option for patients who aren’t sure they want something permanent yet. You can test drive that juicy pout and see if you like it before you fully commit.
We’ll keep saying it: Botox is amazing at preventing wrinkles. This use of Botox is becoming more and more commonplace, helping younger patients avoid the frustration of removing wrinkles by preventing them! Patients in their twenties are banishing crow’s feet and frown lines before they set up shop.
These young patients are also utilizing laser treatments to boost collagen production before it even starts to wane, keeping them looking youthful for a bit longer.

The American Board of Plastic Surgery was established in 1937 to uphold ethical, safe, and efficacious plastic surgery. Here is why you should choose a plastic surgeon who is board certified in plastic surgery:
Board certification shows that the surgeon is qualified:
Even if a state medical board qualifies a surgeon, this does not guarantee they are certified and capable in the services they offer. There is a lot of profit to be had in the cosmetic surgery industry, and many physicians may arbitrarily add services to exploit this, whether or not they are qualified.
Board certification demonstrates continuing education: To be certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, a surgeon must complete six or more years of extra training after they graduate from medical school. Board certified surgeons could opt to pursue additional education to become qualified in other categories of plastic surgery. After they are certified, the surgeon will undergo comprehensive exams and regularly complete continuing education goals to keep their board certification. As the plastic surgery industry continues to expand and new technology is developed, continuing education is an invaluable component in making sure your surgeon is fully qualified to perform plastic surgery.
Board certification shows that the surgeon upholds high standards: Part of the mission of the American Board of Plastic Surgery is to support a philosophy grounded in ethical and safe practices that protect the patient. Too many times the news has reported botched plastic surgeries where unsafe or unethical practices were followed. Your investment in pursuing plastic surgery should be a confident one because you know that the safest practices are being upheld. With a board certified surgeon, you can rest assured that the greatest effort is being made to ensure that the highest ethical standards are observed.
If your surgeon is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, they will likely make it very obvious on their website or about page. If you can’t find it there, call into the office and ask “Is this doctor board certified?” If you have questions about plastic surgery or if you want to schedule a consultation with board-certified Dr. Sanjay Lalla, contact us at 973-324-9455.
