The Top Plastic Surgery Procedures for 2018

Plastic surgery has continued to be on the rise. In 2017, there were 1.8 million surgical cosmetic plastic surgery procedures performed. While people seek out these procedures for a multitude of reasons, many patients report more confidence after treatment.

Considering plastic surgery to improve your quality of life? Take a look at some of the top plastic surgery procedures for 2018.


Rhinoplasty is the reshaping of the nose for aesthetic or functional purposes. Nearly a quarter of a million procedures are performed each year. The nose is a delicate feature, and every step is taken to make sure that you’re satisfied with the end result. 

This procedure is typically chosen by people who want to change the shape or reduce the size of their nose. Imperfections can be caused by injury or genetics, but rhinoplasty can help to give you the nose you desire, creating a more symmetrical face and alleviating structural issues to improve nasal function and breathing.

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, removes excess skin and fat from the abdominal region while tightening muscles. This treatment is most commonly sought out after pregnancy or weight loss, when surgical removal of extra skin is the best option.

This cosmetic plastic surgery procedure still ranks in popularity because of its ability to do what diet and exercise cannot do to remove extra skin. Liposuction is often performed in conjunction with a tummy tuck to remove extra fat deposits. Following a healthy diet and exercise routine after surgery will allow you to continue enjoying the results of your surgery for years to come. 

Breast Reductions

Breast reduction procedures increased by 11% from 2016 to 2017, making them a top plastic surgery procedure for 2018. Because they have the ability to improve a patient’s quality of life, many people seek out this surgery when their breasts make daily activities uncomfortable. 

People suffering from back pain and skin irritation, as well as limitations in their activities, should consider this treatment option to live a freer, more active lifestyle. 

Eyelid Surgery

Blepharoplasty, more commonly known as eyelid surgery, can help to correct drooping upper eyelids or puffy under-eye bags. This procedure can help you look less tired, as it removes excess skin around the eyes. 

Age and genetics can affect the droopiness of eyelids—most patients who seek out this treatment are 35 or older. By removing extra skin, you can take up to 10 years off of your appearance.

Liposuction is a surgical fat removal treatment that can remove unwanted fat from almost anywhere in the body. It uses a tube attached to a powerful vacuum to remove fat deposits below the skin. 

Liposuction is not a magical ‘fix-all’ solution to unwanted weight. Instead, it’s often performed on patients who are in good health and near normal body weight, yet struggle with stubborn fat in specific areas.
