If 2016 was the year that put lip fillers on the map, 2017 was the year that plastic and cosmetic surgery treatments came out of hiding. Searches for Botox went up 15 percent (we blame fake-news-wrinkles), microneedling shot up 85 percent, and interest in the non-surgical nose job went up 35 percent, according to RealSelf.
As the go-to online community for sharing information about cosmetic treatments, RealSelf rounded-up the year’s top cosmetic and plastic surgery treatments based on data from the site. Here are the most popular ways we zapped, poked, and lifted this year.
The Top Nine Non-surgical Treatments of the Year:
1. Non-Surgical Fat Reduction (like Sculpsure and Coolsculpting)
2. Fillers (like Juvederm and Restylane)
3. Hair Restoration
Injections, lasers, light therapy, and transplants are all now offered to help reverse the signs of hair loss or increase the thickness of thinning hair.
4. Toxins (Botox and Dysport)
5. Facial Lasers
6. Scar Treatment
Resurfacing lasers can also help diminish the signs of scars.
7. Acne Treatment
8. Hair Removal
Laser hair removal has been around for years, but newer, faster, and less-painful lasers—not to mention are making the procedure have a renaissance.
9. Chemical Peel
The top plastic surgery treatments of 2017 are a little less surprising, though we are taken aback that butt enhancement is all the way down at number six.
The Top 10 Plastic Surgery Treatments:
1. Breast Augmentation / Lift
3. Tummy Tuck
5. Vaginal Rejuvenation
6. Butt Enhancement
8. Eyelid Surgery
9. Breast Reduction
