All the buzz about body positivity is certainly not putting a damper on demand for major body-modification surgeries. More Americans got breast implants and liposuction in 2017 than they did the year before (300,378 and 246,354, respectively).
An entire generation that grew up hearing people talk openly about plastic surgery — rather than seeing it as taboo — now has disposable income. And the more interest there is in these procedures, the more incentive there is to perfect them. These are the most game-changing innovations in breast augmentation and liposuction — straight from the surgeons who are scrubbed up at the front lines.
Women in Los Angeles desired a more feminine appearance – bigger lips, slender noses and lifted foreheads, plastic surgeons said. By contrast, New Yorkers sought a more natural look defined by stronger jaws, chins and noses.
But what about Philadelphia?
While names like liposuction or breast augmentation are well known, other less common procedures are apparently making their way into the plastic surgery industry.
According to the latest International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS) report , such procedures as labiaplasty or vaginal tightening are among the fastest growing practices in the world.
Here’s our list of eight plastic surgery procedures that more and more people are lining up to take.
Saving money can be a beautiful thing — and the holiday season brings sales galore. But if you’re browsing for discounts on aesthetic procedures, be sure to shop smart.

Billed as a non-invasive alternative to liposuction, CoolSculpting continues to be a go to treatment for A-listers who want results, but don’t want to have scars or spend time recovering from surgery.
CoolSculpting helps to reshape your body by freezing unwanted fatty deposits beneath the skin (think love handles and belly fat). Targeted fat cells die and are eliminated via the body’s natural processes.
Here are four reasons why CoolSculpting could be your favorite beauty treatment this summer.
The International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS) today released the results of their annual Global Aesthetic Survey for procedures completed in 2017, which showed an overall increase of 5% in surgical cosmetic procedures within the past twelve months.
The top five countries – USA, Brazil, Japan, Mexico and Italy – account for 38.4% of the world’s cosmetic procedures, followed by Germany, Colombia and Thailand.
Dr. Suzanne Trott, a double board-certified plastic surgeon who has been practicing in Beverly Hills for 15 years, has come up with a new neck procedure to make you look younger in a week (with very little downtime.)
Trott sat down with Stylish on Monday, October 29, to dish on the Neck Slim, the perfect in-between surgery if you’re not quite ready to go for a full facelift, but still want to see the younger, fresher version of yourself.
In 2012, Somers had an experimental stem cell fat grafting procedure to reconstruct her breast.
Now, roughly six years since that procedure, Somers still loves to talk about her breast. She did so, apparently unprompted, in an interview with Us Magazine, in which she said, “This is a regrown breast. This is really mine.”
Wanting to restore her confidence once and for all after undergoing gastric bypass surgery, events planner Laura Franks, 36, paid $5,000 for a tummy tuck, liposuction and Brazilian bum lift at a clinic in Cali, Colombia, in February this year.
But, instead of getting a dream body, she caught a flesh-eating bug, which ravaged her stomach.
Despite its importance as part of a holistic cancer treatment plan, reconstruction can be incredibly difficult to afford.
When a single breast implant can cost as much as $10,000, the financial burden on a patient can quickly get out of control, making some women feel as though the surgery isn’t a viable option for them.
What about when money does dictate the decision? Marie Claire spoke to three women in the throes of trying to rebuild their lives—and breasts—after cancer.
