Almost every industry is subject to trends and plastic surgery is no exception. From bigger breasts and lips to smaller noses and stomachs, many Americans are willing to go under the knife in favor of the season’s hottest looks. However, not all trends are the kind you’d expect to see. In the past, women have requested a wide range of odd surgeries including foot shortening and procedures to split their tongues in two like a snake. Here are a few of today’s most unusual trends among plastic surgery patients.
Do your thighs brush against each other when you walk? If so, you’re not alone. Unless you have wide hips and a seriously skinny frame, you’re probably accustomed to a little thigh rubbing. However, recent reports indicate that not everyone is willing to suffer from lack of thigh gap in silence. A new if unusual trend in plastic surgery, thigh gap therapy involves the use of cold laser treatments to remove unwanted fat from the thighs. The end result is a reduction in thigh circumference, creating the desired gap between patients’ legs.
Many of us yearn for longer, more bat-able eyelashes however, until recently, the most we could do was slap on some mascara or falsies. However, a new plastic surgery trend offers hope for the short-lashed. Known as eyelash transplants, this procedure involves the use of hair strands from the back of your scalp to create a new set of eyelashes. While effective, the procedure does come with one rather serious caveat. Because the transplanted hair continues to grow, patients must trim their own eyelashes moving forward!
It’s no secret that many women long for bigger fuller breasts. However, a strange new plastic surgery trend will let ladies enjoy larger boobs on a strictly temporary basis. Using liquid injectables that last for two to three weeks, doctors can help women fill out their wedding dresses or bikinis without enduring the lifetime of accompanying back pain. Called vacation breasts by some, this treatment should be available starting in 2016, and according to the experts, women are already expressing interest.
No matter what cosmetic surgery trend you’re considering, it’s important to take your time and do all the necessary research. Make sure that you really want the procedure in question—and that you aren’t just jumping on the latest plastic surgery bandwagon before going under the knife.
