When it Comes to Plastic Surgery, We Don’t Follow Trends

Trends have existed for hundreds of years. We sometimes see them circle around multiple times. Sometimes. Often with a tweak. For example, in the seventies many people wore bellbottom pants and corduroys. Twenty years later, it was the boot-cut jean with a milder flare that was in style. To follow fashion or hair trends is one thing. To follow trends in body type is another entirely. It’s something we would discourage you from doing because, as we said, trends only sometimes circle back around. Plastic surgery changes you forever. Here, we discuss what you should know as you make plans to love your look more.

Body Type is Personal

We cannot say that there haven’t been trends in body type. They’ve been very clear. In the early 1900s, women wore corsets that inhibited breathing so they could exhibit the beloved Gibson Girl look. In the twenties, curves fell out of favor as women sought the Flapper body type. In the fifties, women wished to look like Elizabeth Taylor with her hourglass curves. You get the picture. It’s an important picture to get. Several body types have been deemed “ideal” through the ages. This will continue to change so there is no value trying to fit into any one of them.

Where Plastic Surgery Comes In

Body type is not something that can be changed much, nor should it be changed to meet beauty trends. That doesn’t mean there is no value in plastic surgery, though. People can have plastic surgery to eliminate unwanted fat and achieve a more sculpted body but not to lose weight or completely change their general shape. People can have procedures to add volume to the breasts or buttocks or to reduce the size of the breasts. People have surgery to restore better shape to the breasts after pregnancy and breastfeeding. There are several instances in which plastic surgery makes perfect sense. What we do is work with each patient to achieve a look that is ideal for them, not for the current trend, whatever that may be.

We can help you achieve the shape and curves that beautifully enhance your body. To learn more about procedures like liposuction, abdominoplasty, or breast surgery call our NYC office at (212) 508-0000.
