Hollywood is the home of the U.S. film industry and it is no surprise that residents of Los Angeles are obsessed with cosmetic trends. Although plastic surgery is not uncommon, new statistics now suggest that people are now shifting face-lifts to a more natural look.
Face-lift popularity falls as new technologies emerge
In 2015, a study conducted by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons showed a 31% decline in the number of face-lift procedures in the western U.S. Most of the patients don’t come in to look 25 years younger. They want to look like themselves realistically and not look pulled and artificial.
The preferred options nowadays are anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers, and thread lifts for those looking to rejuvenate their appearance. In a face-lift procedure, the general anesthesia, pain, and discomfort, and the three-week recovery time redirect the people to more non-invasive options.
“Cocktails” as the present cosmetic trend
According to Beverly Hills surgeon Raj Kanodia, he’d rather have wrinkles than undergo a face-lift. As a well known cosmetic doctor in Hollywood, his “cocktail” approach restores volume, lifts tissues, and tightens muscles to contour someone in their 30s through a 3-pronged method: anti-wrinkle injections, fillers, and laser.
The new face-lifts
Face Thread Lift has become a popular alternative to the traditional face-lift to rejuvenate their look. The absorbable thread helps reduce the signs of aging more naturally. The procedure only takes about 45 minutes and there’s minimal downtime. Thread Lift is a nonsurgical treatment that defines the natural contours of the face, tackles sagging jowls, gives volume to the cheeks, and opens the eyes by lifting the brows and tighter and firmer skin. The results are immediate and continue to improve in 3 months following the procedure due to the natural stimulation of collagen production.
Another latest face-lift procedure gaining attention is Plasmage. Delivering plasma energy, this new technology lifts the skin and reduces wrinkles to create a more youthful appearance without damaging the skin’s surface. It stimulates collagen production and provides long-lasting lifting effects. And, with minimal to no discomfort during the procedure, the results are immediate.
These new forms of face-lifts produce the same results as the traditional facelifts but more natural. Because of the advancement of technologies, the number of altered faces of the traditional facelifts in and outside Hollywood is bound to lessen more and more each year.
