Most people would probably agree that 2020 was one of the most unpredictable and topsy-turvy years of our lives. The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted everything from the way we work to how we shop for everyday necessities, and some of these changes could be permanent. However, news of two reliable vaccines has been a bright spot amid these chaotic circumstances, giving us a renewed sense of optimism heading into 2021.
Many of us are looking forward to gathering with family and friends once again in the new year. Here are some on-trend plastic surgery procedures we expect to be highly sought after in 2021!
1. Eyelid Lift
Our eyes are one of the most expressive parts of our faces, and we’ve relied on them more than ever to convey emotions in public. As a result, you might have noticed the delicate skin around your eyes aging more rapidly than the rest of your face.
If puffy undereye bags make you look fatigued or sad, or your upper eyelid skin is drooping into your field of vision, you’re likely an excellent candidate for an eyelid lift. This cosmetic procedure can remove excess skin and fat from the upper and lower eyelids, leading to a brighter, more approachable appearance and a naturally rejuvenated look.
2. Lip Augmentation
Full, pouting lips are a hallmark of a youthful face, but lip volume loss is a common cosmetic concern as the years roll by. A surgical or non-surgical lip augmentation procedure can restore your lips’ contours and help define their shape. After months of having to obscure your mouth behind a mask, you are likely yearning to show off a sexy, perfectly formed lip profile, which is why we predict that lip augmentation will be so sought-after in 2021.
If you’re one of the thousands of people who had to put their 2020 goals on hold due to the pandemic, you’ve probably got a long list of New Year’s resolutions ahead of you. Many of Dr. Schmidt’s facelift patients tell him they’ve been dreaming of getting this surgery for years before finally committing to it. While a facelift can’t halt the natural aging process, it can remove a decade or more from your appearance, making it well worth the wait. In performing a facelift, Dr. Schmidt can remove excess skin that creates the appearance of jowls, creating a slimmer jawline and neck profile. By repositioning sagging facial muscles and tissues, he can also tighten the area around the mouth and cheeks, reducing wrinkles and fine lines.
