Facial Cosmetic Surgery is up 25%

Feb 26, 2018

More and more folks are putting their best face forward. In the annual review put forth by the American Academy of Facial and Reconstructive Plastic Surgery, 2017 was a boon for facial cosmetic surgery. In fact, the demand for both invasive and noninvasive procedures created a 25% increase in procedures overall.

What’s driving the trend for facial enhancements, you may ask? For one, social media. Welcome to the selfie culture, which has helped mainstream cosmetic procedures. People want to look their best, and according to research, both surgical and nonsurgical facial procedures can help boost self-esteem and confidence. Beyond the impact of social media, many people report that they are seeking cosmetic facial procedures in order to stay relevant and “young” looking in the workforce.

Based on this report, the most popular face-focused procedures performed in 2017 were rhinoplasty (nose jobs), blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), and facelifts. At Bellava MedAesthetics & Plastic Surgery Westchester, our board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. C.S. Kim, who trained at Yale and has over a decade of plastic surgery experience, is passionate about helping patients achieve their own natural beauty through the latest, advancements in facial cosmetic surgery. He is highly sought after in Westchester for nose reshaping, facelifts/mini facelifts, eyelid surgery and more. Dr. Kim is highly praised for his warm bedside manner. During the consultation stage, Dr. Kim carefully listens to each patient’s goals and then provides a thorough analysis to help ensure artistic balance of the face for an outcome that is natural, not artificial. His follow-up care includes direct access via cell phone in order for him to personally address his patient’s progress and concerns.
