5 Plastic Surgery Trends For 2015

As new technologies in plastic surgery and more minimally invasive products become more widely available to all consumers the trends of cosmetic surgery are beginning to shift. In 2015, we expect more of our Charleston customers to go for multiple, smaller procedures and combine bigger procedures.breast augmentation surgery charleston sc

Top 2015 Plastic Surgery Trends

1. Minimally Invasive

Getting results without going under the knife is a huge draw for many people. Aesthetic procedures like skin rejuvenation, intense pulsed light, scar revision, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and coolsculpting can give dramatic results with multiple quick visits to Dr. O’Neill.

2. Plastic Surgery For Men

With online identities more and more focused on photographs, many people (especially men) are noting their appearance and wanting to make a change. Procedures like male breast reduction, skin care, and tummy tucks are perfect for men who want to improve their body contours.

3. Small Procedures With A Big Impactbrow lift charleston sc-1030x360

For people who have very specific needs can usually target their trouble spots with small procedures. A brow lift or nostril reshaping can make a huge impact on trouble spots. Dr. O’Neill can use a combination of these small procedures with more aesthetic procedures for a dramatic result on targeted areas.

4. Combinations

Combination plastic surgery is becoming hugely popular. Women in the Charleston area are getting the Mommy Makeover package to combine breast implants, liposuction, and a tummy tuck. Liposuction can be combined with almost any other procedure. Dr. O’Neill can work with you to develop a combination plan so that you can get your work done in one operation.

5. Eyes

Another trend supported by our image-centric online universe is the blepharoplasty procedure. Eyelid lifts are an extremely beneficial anti-aging technique. Dr. O’Neill lifts and tightens the skin around the eyes to give our patients a rested and youthful appearance.

Liposuction is a great option for generally healthy people who, even with exercise and diet, can still have stubborn localized fat deposits. Dr. O’Neill uses small incisions to insert a cannula (vacuum tube) to suck out the fatty tissue. Liposuction can be used in conjunction with almost every other procedure, but is also used for the following specific areas:

  • Stomach
  • Thighs
  • Hips & Buttocks
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Neck & Face
  • and more!

Visit our liposuction page or contact us online to learn more about liposuction.

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

For a tighter, flatter stomach, Charleston patients can get a tummy tuck procedure. Tummy tucks involve the removal of fat from the stomach/abdomen area and the fat cut out. Tummy tucks also re-firm the abdominal muscles that may have become weakened or separated during pregnancy or weight gain. After final healing and swelling goes down, you will get noticed for your tighter and slimmer body contours!

Liposuction Information

Liposuction is an extremely popular type of plastic surgery, performed to remove fatty deposits on specific areas of the body.

Dr. O’Neill performs this surgery regularly and his liposuction patients get dramatic, body contouring results, ultimately enhancing self-confidence and body image! Liposuction can also be combined with other procedures for overall body contouring improvement. Typically, people in good health are better candidates for liposuction surgery.

Liposuction Surgery Fat Targeting

  • Stomach
  • Waist
  • Hips
  • Buttocks
  • Upper Arms
  • Chest
  • Face
  • Calves
  • Ankles

How Does Liposuction Work

The tumescent or super-wet liposuction technique requires an infusion of saline solution with adrenaline and possibly anesthetic prior to removal of excess fat. During the outpatient plastic surgery procedure, Dr. O’Neill will make a series of incisions and inserts the fat-targeting cannula into the fatty deposits. Those fatty deposits are then sucked out using vacuum attached to the cannula.

Facelift – (Male Facelift Charleston, SC Patient Pictured Above) Facelift surgery for men is a process of tightening facial skin, lifting features, and dramatically reducing the appearance of aging. Facelifts can be combined with liposuction for even more dramatic results.
