Even during the midst of a global pandemic, people wanted to look their best.
In 2020, cosmetic procedures such as lip injections and skin tightening were still hugely popular.
As we finally begin to stem the tide of COVID-19, what does 2021 have in store?

Long gone are the days when bigger was better when it comes to breast augmentation.
People are now more often looking for smaller, more natural implants. The goal is to subtly augment and lift the breasts, rather than significantly increase their size. There are also a lot of people seeking breast revision, in order to correct the breast augmentation surgery that they have had previously, and finally give them the results they originally hoped for.
Some people are choosing to have their implants completely removed.
Sites like Instagram have brought a lot of attention to people’s facial features.
One of the most dominant features of any face is the nose. It’s no wonder then that rhinoplasty continues to be one of the most popular plastic surgery trends in 2021. Rhinoplasty can straighten a crooked or off-center nose, can shorten the length of the nose, can correct bumps or bridges, and even reshape the nostrils.
If you’re looking to have the nose you’ve always dreamt of, then rhinoplasty is still the way to go.
If you’re looking to enhance the shape of your face, then facial implants are something that will continue to be popular throughout 2021.
Facial implants such as chin or cheek implants can add balance to your face, making it more symmetrical. Science has shown that we find symmetrical faces the most attractive.
There is a range of options for facial implants. The most common choice is silicone gel, which can be semi-solid or soft. Inserting these types of implants usually only requires small incisions, and recovery times are fast.
2020 was the year of the mask. With most of our faces covered, it brought more focus to the eyes.
That’s why one of the big plastic surgery trends of 2021 is the brow lift. The brow lift can improve a number of issues, from brow creases and frown lines to sagging brows. It can save you hours of plucking and penciling, and the best part is that the results of a brow lift can last for years.
If you want to look great in your mask, then a brow lift is something that you should consider.
2021 is likely to see the continued rise of non-surgical procedures.
The most famous of all non-surgical procedures is Botox, which continues to be one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. It’s no wonder; Botox treatments can address issues such as forehead lines, frown lines, crow’s feet, brow creases, and more.
There are plenty of other non-surgical procedures that are popular in 2021. Dermal fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm can restore the volume of your skin and remove lines and wrinkles, making you look noticeably younger.
Coolsculpting and other non-surgical body contouring procedures are also highly popular, allowing you to remove unwanted fat without invasive surgery. Laser treatments are another non-surgical cosmetic procedure; lasers can be used for everything from hair removal and skin resurfacing to tattoo removal and skin peels.
If you’re not sure about going under the knife, then there are plenty of non-surgical options which can give you excellent results.
The COVID-19 lockdowns have had both positive and negative effects. One huge positive is a reduction in harmful emissions, as people used their cars less, and businesses used less power. A big negative is that people stayed at home and became more sedentary.
That’s why liposuction is one of the major cosmetic surgery trends in 2021. Even if you exercise regularly, and follow a healthy diet, you may still have some areas of fat that you simply can’t shift. That’s where liposuction can help. Liposuction treatment can remove stubborn fat from areas such as hips, thighs, abdomen, and even those stubborn man-boobs.
It’s important to understand that whilst liposuction removes the unwanted fat, it doesn’t impact skin elasticity, so not everyone may be a suitable candidate for the procedure. We recommend having a consultation with a good plastic surgeon who can talk you through all of your available options.
Another popular treatment for 2021 is hair restoration. As procedures become more and more effective, and less invasive, hair restoration is continuing to grow in popularity.
There are a number of options available if you are looking for hair restoration treatment. Some methods involve removing a piece of skin from the back of your head and implanting the hairs into your head. This will leave scars where the skin is removed, but if your hair is thick enough, then these shouldn’t be visible.
If you’re looking for a less invasive method, then options such as Neograft treatment may be a better choice. This is a minimally invasive procedure that involves no scalpel incisions, no sutures, and leaves almost imperceptible scarring. It’s also possible to restore large areas of hair in a single session, meaning fewer visits.
