Whether you’re for or against invasive aesthetic transformations, it’s a booming industry with new technologies advancing treatments all the time. 2019 looks set to see the demand for cosmetic surgery procedures further increase, with a trend for truly natural-looking results. We asked experts from The Private Clinic of Harley Street, one of the country’s leading cosmetic surgery groups, and influential industry figure cosmetic doctor Dr Esho, to share their new year ‘tweakment’ predictions, below.
1. ‘Impact treatment’
Whereas before to change a face significantly you’d have to perform plastic surgery, now, “with a needle, a cannula and 3D imaging, you can do it all in the space of the doctor’s clinic,” says Dr Esho. “It’s like Face Off, it’s amazing.”
Using 3D imaging and augmented reality, clients now get a chance to see what their face will look like post-treatment, before they’ve even gone near a needle. Defined as “impact treatment” by Dr Esho, “the new treatment works on the entire face and can transform round faces into defined, sharp silhouettes”. The big game changer is that instead of using surgery to make the changes circa 2018, the results are all achieved via bespoke fillers, he says.
