TETRRF-00004540-001When the American Society of Plastic Surgeons released their 2013 statistics, it was no surprise to our doctors and staff at Long Island Plastic Surgical Group that breast augmentation, rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery, liposuction, and facelift were the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures in the United States. However, we have noticed at our practice that nonsurgical procedures – particularly injectables – are increasing steadily in popularity.

The current trend in aesthetic enhancement is a less aggressive approach to rejuvenation. For our average patient seeking cosmetic treatment, the goal is an end result that looks natural and realistic, rather than overdone and artificial. The dramatic increase in injectable treatments is, in part, due to their overall ease, availability, and minimal down time. Injectables such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and JUVÉDERM® can often be a more practical and conservative approach to achieving younger-looking skin without making an overly-dramatic impact on your appearance. Patients seeking to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and restore lost volume – or to take preventive measures against these common signs of aging – have many nonsurgical treatment options available if a full facelift is not considered an options by the patient.

Please check our blog again soon for a follow-up post in which Dr. Barry K. Douglas will discuss a variety of injectable options that can be used to maintain a more youthful facial appearance.
