Just as hairstyles and makeup trend change from year to year, so do trends in plastic surgery. Of course, the latter is generally less extreme, as going under the knife involves much more than a trip to the salon or buying different shades of eyeshadow. Still, some of 2017’s plastic surgery trends are quite different from those popular just a year or two ago.
Overly full lips are not in this year, at least not in Asian countries. Lip reduction surgery has become increasingly common among Asian clients, primarily female, who want the thinner lip look of Westerners. Lip reduction surgery consists of cutting at the lip’s wet/dry line, then moving the lip back into the mouth. This helps reduce the appearance of lip thickness.
Boobs and butts are still on the upswing, so to speak. The latest trend concerns the use of fat grafting, or taking fat from the patient’s own abdomen and using it to enhance the size of breasts and buttocks. All the procedures are done in conjunction with liposuction, which removes the fat from the unwanted area and places it where the client does want extra size. Because the fat comes from the patient’s body, it lasts longer than other types of fillers often used in such procedures.
Here’s one procedure only your most intimate friends need know about, and you won’t post it on social media. That’s because labiaplasty is one of several operations known as “cosmetic vaginal surgery.” Let’s put it this way – if camel toe is a problem, labiaplasty is the solution. Some women with long labia, the vaginal “lips,” experience discomfort while riding a bicycle or horse – or while having sex. Other women have issues keeping the labia from coming out of their bathing suits. Labiaplasty reduces the size of the labia minora, so that it is symmetrical with the labia majora or doesn’t hang below it. Some women just want a more pleasing look aesthetically.
Although most women can resume normal activities after cosmetic vaginal surgery within a week, those activities do not include vaginal intercourse. For that, you’ll have to wait at least a month to six weeks post-surgery. Women recovering from cosmetic vaginal surgery can’t wear tampons during their periods. Such procedures aren’t performed during a woman’s period or if a woman is pregnant.
