“Right now we are cocooning. While the beauty is in the butterfly – the growth happens in the cocoon” -Jim Kwik.
As we re-emerge from our cocoons, we are in many ways stepping in to a new world. (See updated safety protocols) Changes in business, lifestyles, finances have effected us all to a certain extent. Along with these changes, some of which may be around for a while, the following are my predictions for the newest trends in Plastic Surgery in Houston.
Spent quarantine going braless? Unfortunately, gravity didn’t take a pause during stay at home orders. Over time, breasts can lose their youthful shape and assume a sagging posture. This can often be the result of heredity or changes the breasts undergo during pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations or aging. As the elasticity of the skin and the density of the breast tissue change, the breast can begin to droop. A Mastopexy (aka Breast Lift) restores a more youthful profile and allows patients to enjoy more clothing options, enhanced comfort and improved confidence.
Neck rejuvenation procedures have been steadily on the rise even before Covid. Many patients come to me to treat the loosening of neck muscles and surrounding skin caused by holding your head at a 45-degree angle or greater, also known as #TechNeck. Between spending more time than usual on our devices to stay connected socially and finding ourselves scrutinizing our lower face during Zoom meetings, I am already receiving an influx of calls for necklift surgery as well as non-surgical options including FaceTite and Kybella.
Botox and fillers
A perennial favorite, both fillers and neuromodulators such as Botox, Dysport, and Jeuveau offer temporary improvement the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Since these treatments require ongoing visits to maintain results, I advise anyone looking for a tune up to schedule far in advance as injectable appointments in particular are sure to fill up fast.
Evolve by InMode.
With gyms being closed and the abundance of snacking we were all guilty of, there will be a huge demand for non-surgical treatments to trim, tighten, and tone our figures to fight off the #QuarentineFifteen. Using a hands-free device, Evolve treatments allow patients to burn fat, tighten loose skin, and/or build muscle all within the comfort and privacy of my office in Houston.
