What cosmetic surgeries are trending in 2021?

While every body shape and feature should be celebrated, there is no getting away from the fact that for most of us, there are areas of our appearance that don’t fill us with the confidence that we deserve. Fortunately, cosmetic surgery procedures have made it possible to enhance virtually any aspect of the way that we look, empowering us to rediscover our inner as well as our physical beauty.

There are many different cosmetic surgeries available, and those that already exist are continuously being developed and improved in order to offer patients the greatest safest and most effective techniques. This means that inevitably, there are some cosmetic procedures that are considered more popular than others at any given time. Here are some of the trending cosmetic surgeries of 2020 that you should know about.

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentations have been popular since 2006 and remain one of the most sought-after cosmetic surgery procedures in the world. The aim of breast augmentation is to enhance the natural size and shape of the breasts so that they are large and more voluptuous, giving women even greater confidence in their appearance.

Conventionally, breast augmentation surgery is performed using artificial implants of either silicone or saline, which are inserted into the chest cavity through incisions under the breast or in the armpit. However, the latest trend in breast augmentation is a technique known as fat transfer. This is where fat is taken from another part of the body, harvested, and then reinserted back into the breasts in order to enhance them. The fat removal is performed using liposuction, which is minimally invasive and gives the patient’s ability to streamline another part of their body, such as their waist or hips. Fat transfer is particularly successful since it uses the patient’s own fat, which their body won’t see as foreign and therefore won’t reject. Recovery is also fairly quick with a low risk of complications provided you follow the aftercare advice of your surgeon.


Liposuction is another very popular cosmetic surgery, largely due to the fact that the technique can be performed on a wide range of areas of the body, and it is set to be just as hot for 2020. Liposuction involves the removal of excess fat through suction, via a tube that is inserted into the target area of the body. As it is worked back and forth, your cosmetic surgeon can use liposuction to create a slimmer, smoother, and more streamlined appearance. Some of the most common areas where patients seek to have liposuction performed include the:

- Abdomen

- Hips

- Flanks

- Lower back

- Buttocks

- Thighs

- Upper arms

Recovery from liposuction is usually fairly fast and straightforward, provided that patients follow the post-surgery instructions provided to them. Once fully healed, patients can enjoy a sleeker silhouette that gives them the confidence that they need to shine.

Nose Reshaping

As the central feature dominating our face, our nose is highly visible. If you feel that your nose doesn’t complement the rest of your face as well as it could, you may be considering cosmetic surgery to reshape it. While conventional rhinoplasty remains extremely popular, there are other, newer techniques for reshaping the nose, including the use of dermal fillers. These injectable treatments are placed around the nose in order to alter its appearance, enabling patients to achieve changes that place their nose in better proportion with the rest of their face. Nose reshaping, which is minimally invasive with virtually instant results and no downtime is the easiest way of enhancing the natural beauty of your face.
