4 Most Unusual Procedures of 2015


Every year there are new trends found in the field of plastic surgery. Regardless of what current trends are, the decision to get cosmetic surgery is one that you are comfortable with and shouldn't be taken lightly. If you are in the Philadelphia area and are considering cosmetic surgery, contact experienced plastic surgeon Dr. David Bottger at 610-355-1929 for a consultation.

So far, 2015 has brought about some atypical trends in procedures. Here are 4 of the most unusual trends we have seen thus far:

  • Grin lift - As we age, the corners of the mouth have a tendency to droop. This procedure turns that frown upside down..literally. Be aware that the procedure will leave permanent scars that may not be desirable.
  • Eyebrow transplants - While thin brows were once the "it" thing, bushy brows are back in full force. An eyebrow pencil allows you to create your own personalized eyebrow stencil. The procedure involves removing a piece of scalp from the back of the head and using the hairs to graft them into your desired shape.
  • Chubby cheek surgery - A buccal lipectomy is considered a minor surgery that eliminates chubby cheeks, giving you a more contoured face. This is done by creating a small incision in the cheek and removing a gumball-sized chunk of fat out of each cheek.
  • Thigh gap surgery - With the medias recent attention given to thigh gaps, cold laser treatment is now being offered to melt away unwanted fat cells on the inner thighs . Those who go through with this procedure will need to stick to a firm diet and exercise program as well.
