Cosmetic Trends: Which Plastic Surgeries Are Most Popular
Each year, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons compiles a study on the most frequently performed cosmetic surgical procedures. The most recent report lists the five most popular surgeries. Top Phoenix surgeon Genaro Valladolid can confirm that these are among the most requested procedures at his own practice, as well. In this blog, he shares what those surgeries are and why so many patients choose them to boost their appearance.
1. Nose Reshaping
Rhinoplasty maintains its position as the No. 1 procedure this year. While a lot of cosmetic procedures were postponed in 2020 due to shelter-at-home guidelines related to COVID-19, rhinoplasty only declined by 3 percent from the year before, a strong endorsement of its enduring popularity.
No doubt, its popularity is in large part due to rhinoplasty being such a versatile and customizable procedure. Whether you want to change the bridge, the width, the general shape, the projection of the tip or even the size of the nostrils, all of these alterations are possible in the hands of a skilled surgeon like Dr. Valladolid.
2. Eyelid Surgery
The average American may not be able to define “blepharoplasty,” but that is not an accurate reflection of how many people are undergoing eyelid surgery. Because a person’s eyes can tell so much about their age, upper and lower blepharoplasty are sought as rejuvenating procedures. These surgeries clean up excess skin, eliminate premature lines and can even target the bags beneath the eyes that make you look older and more tired.
The next most popular procedure is one that addresses signs of aging on the lower half of the face. By tightening the facial tissues around the mouth and neck, the fine lines and wrinkles are minimized while removing the excess skin that is common as you get older. In the hands of a surgeon like Dr. Valladolid, a patient can reasonably expect to see at least 10 years removed from their face.
The first non-facial surgery on the list is this classic body contouring procedure. Liposuction helps patients achieve a nicer toned body by suctioning out unwanted fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise. Patients especially appreciate that the procedure is successful all over the body — Dr. Valladolid has performed liposuction on patients’ thighs, stomachs, hips, butt, back, neck and arms. If you have multiple problem areas, they can usually be addressed in the same session.
5. Breast Augmentation
Feminine beauty is so often linked to the size of the chest that it is no surprise that many women look to increase their confidence along with their bust size. Dr. Valladolid is proficient at multiple techniques and carries a variety of implant textures and sizes to provide you with breasts to give you the proportions and physique you have always wanted.

Ultimately, patients should choose cosmetic procedures based on their ability to make them look and feel better, not how popular they are overall.
