Top Facial Surgery Trends for 2022
While the number of plastic surgeries in 2020 was down from 2019, that should come as no surprise as it was the year of COVID – where’s the dislike button?
As we made our way through 2021, though, and as businesses and people became more comfortable with returning to their regularly scheduled programming, we started to see these numbers rise again.
Not to mention, we’ve all had more time to look at ourselves on video chats and pick apart all the areas we’d like to improve.
In 2022, it is predicted that the following facial enhancements come out on top.
RHINOPLASTY (NOSE JOB)
Commonly referred to as a nose job, rhinoplasty is a procedure to alter the appearance and overall construction of the nose – a focal point of the face. Double-board certified, Palm Beach facial plastic surgeon, Doctor Jean-Paul Azzi is a rhinoplasty expert and believes the nose is one of the most defining features of the face.
Dr. Azzi is known for being a perfectionist. He says:
“I have no problem spending three hours making sure every detail is perfect and if I am not 100% satisfied, I will start all over. The confidence boost that patients get when they see their ‘new’ nose for the first time makes it all worth it. It is so fulfilling for me to be able to help them.”
EYE LID SURGERY
Blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) improves the appearance of the eyelids – upper and lower. An upper eyelid lift (upper blepharoplasty) addresses droopy or saggy upper eyelids, while a lower eyelid lift (lower blepharoplasty) fixes puffy under eye “bags” that develop over time.
Dr. Azzi uses the most advanced techniques to not only improve the lower eyelids and remove the bags under the eyes, but he can also simultaneously lift a drooping cheek or midface.
“The goal is not to look different - just rested, natural, younger and more beautiful,” says Dr. Azzi
After the past two years we’ve had, a facelift might be just what the doctor ordered for a confidence boost. A rhytidectomy (facelift) is a procedure that works to reposition the face and turn back the hands of time for a more youthful appearance.
Dr. Azzi utilizes the deep plane technique. He's doesn't just pull the skin tight and sew it back together (like other facelifting techniques); he goes underneath the skin and repositions the underlying structures – like muscles and tissues – back to where they were at an earlier point in life. ⠀
His technique allows him to lift the entire face, rather than simply stretching the skin over drooping facial structures, which would result in a very tight, windswept look.
The results are more natural and longer-lasting than a standard facelift (skin lift). ⠀
Not exactly part of the face, but connected for sure. Gravity and time takes its toll on the neck and a smooth and youthful face might lose its credibility if your neck skin is sagging and lacking elasticity. The key to a youthful appearance is cohesion. In most cases, a neck lift can actually be performed at the same time as a facelift. Doctor Azzi uses the most up to date techniques when it comes to facelifts and neck lifts, which is important in achieving a natural look.
If you are considering any type of procedure, Dr. Azzi of The Palm Beach Center for Plastic & Laser Surgery can discuss the benefits and risks with you in great detail. With offices located in Jupiter and Palm City, Florida, he’s known as one of the top plastic surgeons in Florida, and he has patients travel from all over the country for his specialized procedures.
