The coronavirus pandemic has provoked an unforeseen surge in demand for plastic surgery. Experts are labeling the phenomenon Zoom Boom. The widespread adoption of video calling resulted in people’s heightened sense of their physical features and increased the desire to improve personal appearance. According to The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, nearly 10 million surgical procedures were performed in 2021 alone.

It’s become a publicly discussed topic, especially on social media, and is eagerly encouraged by self-love advocates. Plastic surgery doesn’t simply change an outward aspect, it uplifts the inner spirit, too. It helps heal the poor attributes one might hold of themself. Millions of people transform internally as they re-enter life with boosted confidence, enhanced self-esteem, and feeling good!
Plastic surgery has quickly gained notoriety for being the new form of self-care. It’s growing in popularity each year and the number of patients continues to steadily rise. There’s dozens of procedures available, but where to begin? Insight on the trending plastic surgeries for 2023 is a great place to start.
Setty Plastics and Aesthetics
Despite not being as trendy as facial enhancements, body and breast surgeries have been a fan favorite for years. Dr. Naveen Setty runs the private practice Setty Plastic and Aesthetics, ADDISON, Readers’ Choice Awards Winner for 2022 Favorite Plastic Surgeon, where he specializes in both cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, with a focus on body and breast procedures.
There are several different types of breast reconstruction surgeries, however, breast lifts have been gaining more attention as of late.
Pregnancy, breastfeeding, and aging are beautiful parts of womanhood but they wear down the breasts. Dr. Setty redefines the breast by reducing loose skin and pulling firmly on the tissue to restore their youthful shape and vigor.
Though last year’s data is unavailable, liposuction was the top surgery performed in 2021 and most likely maintained the leading spot.
Excess fat can be difficult to shred, but thankfully liposuction jump-starts the process. Dr. Setty uses advanced suction techniques that remove fat from the targeted areas of the body, leaving you with a healthier appearance.
Tummy tucks are another popular procedure, which actually came in at third place for top surgeries performed in 2021.
Similar to the natural state of the breast, unwanted fat and excess skin on the stomach subsists due to aging, childbirth, and significant weight loss. Dr. Setty has devised a body contouring treatment to reshape the abdomen and produces flattering results.
