Skip the hospital visits, recovery time, and pain meds—this year’s
most popular aesthetic treatments will have you swapping the knife for the
needle. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, minimally invasive
cosmetic procedures have increased 200% since 2000, with 15.7 million
procedures performed in 2017. We asked Chevy Chase, MD plastic surgeon Shervin Naderi, MD about which treatments
and procedures he’s seen on the rise in his office. Read on to find out!
rhinoplasty (price varies by location, average $700*/syringe) – During this
procedure (which is sometimes referred as the “5-minute nose job”), a doctor
will inject a temporary hyaluronic filler (like Restylane®) into the nose to
give better definition and symmetry. It’s a great option for those looking for
immediate nasal reshaping without any surgery or downtime.
trough injections (average $700*/syringe) – Dark circles and deep shadows under
the eyes are common, and it used to be a tough problem to correct. Now, doctors
can easily fill in the depressed tear trough with fillers like Restylane and
Juvéderm Voluma® for a more rested, youthful undereye appearance.
injections (average $700*/syringe) – Lip injections have been around for a
while, but since celebrities started talking about them, lip filler
appointments have skyrocketed. Juvéderm and Restylane are used to create more
fullness, symmetry, and an overall better pout.
Non-surgical cheek and chin augmentation (average
$700*/syringe) – Cheeks and chins used to only be augmented with implants. Now,
doctors are using fillers like Restylane Lyft or Juvéderm Voluma to add better
projection to both areas. Fillers in the chin create more balance to the face
and a better neckline, while fillers in the cheekbones, add lift, shape and help
create a more heart-shaped face.
buttock augmentation (average $1000*/syringe – Most patients need multiple syringes.)
– Everyone wants a great butt, and thanks to Sculptra®, patients can have one.
Sculptra is made from an injectable synthetic material (called poly-L-lactic
acid), which stimulates collagen production and can be naturally absorbed in
the body. Sculptra can be used to create a more feminine, full derriere in the
office, without surgery.
