2022 Cosmetic Surgery Trends

New Year, new you? Nah. We prefer: New Year, new options—to level up your look, if you so choose.


In the coming months, you can expect to see the greenlighting of some long-awaited breakthroughs—from the known surgical procedures to the cutting-edge tools, techniques and developments.

A cleavage-enhancing breast implant

Plastic surgeons will soon be offering a newly FDA-approved breast implant from Mentor called the Memory Gel Boost. 

This smooth, round, silicone device marries two seemingly opposing traits—it holds its shape in the breast while remaining soft to the touch, according to the company. 

Body Contouring Procedures

Due to the recent pandemic causing gyms to close and an increased time spent on the couch, people have found themselves a few pounds heavier. According to data collected by the Journal of the American Medical Association and the University of California San Francisco, Americans gained an average of two pounds per week during the start of the lockdown. This has led individuals coming out of the pandemic to resort to body contouring procedures such as liposuction, fat transfer to the breast, tummy tuck, brazilaian butt lift, Mommy Makeover and Coolsculpting.

Plastic Surgery for Men

Over the years, plastic surgery has gone from being difficult and stigmatised to becoming more mainstream and openly discussed. The increased awareness of plastic surgery has allowed men to feel less nervous about approaching this delicate topic. They have been able to ask the questions that stopped them from seeking Plastic Surgery in the past, as well as see it firsthand on apps like TikTok and Instagram. For these reasons, surgeries like Gynecomastia correction, the removal of male breast tissue, have increased in popularity in recent years. Other popular cosmetic procedures for men are rhinoplasty, Botox, and blepharoplasty surgery. While procedures for men are nowhere near as common as procedures for women, we are seeing a shift in the amount of men who are turning to surgery to preserve their youthful appearance

Preventative Surgery

Cosmetic surgery has been around for a long time, and for the most part it has been used by older patients to reverse the effects of ageing. However, in the past few years, there has been an increasing number of younger people opting for cosmetic procedures. This has been done in order to take a proactive approach to preventing or slowing down the signs of ageing. There has been a recent trend of younger people wanting mini-facelifts instead of waiting until they need a more drastic measure, such as a surgical facelift. Injectables such as Botox and dermal fillers have become increasingly popular as a way to ease the appearance of age lines and wrinkles. This trend is being fuelled by millennials who are looking to avoid more drastic measures like surgical facelifts in the future.
