Experts believe facial fillers will continue to rise in popularity during 2011

While plastic surgeons are typically optimistic about the success of their profession, experts say that in 2011, they may be proven right. Despite a slump in business over the past of couple years due to the recession, doctors believe that aesthetic surgery will experience a rebound these coming months, The Orange Country Register reports.

Facelifts, which have decreased over the past 5 years according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, have been replaced with minimally invasive anti-aging procedures. Specifically, industry analysts believe that facial fillers will see the largest growth in popularity. Not to be forgotten, Botox and fat transfers will also see growth as new advances in both will increase popularity.

In terms of body areas, the cheeks are the “new lips” for women looking to “re-inflate” loss volume and smooth out contours. Buttock augmentations will continue to be popular as high profile celebrities flaunt their assets. Advances in hair restoration, hair loss prevention and detection are all around the corner, from prescriptions to laser treatments and genetic testing.

The ultimate body procedure will be from those recovering from massive weight loss, either through diet and exercise or from surgery. There were over 200,000 gastric bypass procedures done last year and plastic surgeons will be keeping up with the aftermath.

Also listed in the forecast is an increase in procedures such as radio frequency heat and light-based technology.
