Dr George Pope, a leading surgeon at the Orlando Plastic Surgery Center based in US, has revealed some of the main trends that are emerging among his patients in 2012.
Pope admitted, while women are still very much in the market for cosmetic procedures, they generally want their overall appearance to seem as though they have had nothing done.
“Women want fuller lips, but not Angelina Jolie-sized lips. These women want fuller breasts through breast augmentation surgery, but are keeping the size natural looking,” Dr Pope said.
A member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), Dr Pope emphasised the rise of ‘mummy makeovers’ in 2012, as women opt for tummy tucks and breast lifts to regain their natural shape after having children.
Dr Pope also noted Botox and Sculptra are now the most popular forms of non-invasive procedures, claiming his patients like these treatments because they make them look ‘red carpet ready’ yet appear natural.
