2022 Plastic Surgery Trends

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, plastic surgery procedures were down in 2020 (not surprising, due to COVID-19), but the industry saw a significant rise in procedures in 2021. With the outlook bright in 2021 – what will 2022 have in store for us? While we will most likely continue to see the continuation of certain popular procedures such as breast augmentation or rhinoplasty, there is an increasing amount of interest in others as well.

Plastic Surgeries to Look Out For

Now that the world is taking a tentative step into reopening, people are scheduling popular plastic surgery procedures that will make them look and feel better. 2022 may very well be an explosive year for popular plastic surgeries and some new entrants as well. This year, let’s be on the lookout for growth in the following procedures:

  • Dermal micro-coring treatments
  • Surgical labiaplasties
  • Rhinoplasty
  • Breast augmentations
  • Brazilian butt lift

Dermal Micro-coring treatments

This treatment is a type of collagen induction therapy that uses very fine needles to create micro-wounds in the skin. This is supposed to help with the production of collagen and elastin, which can improve the appearance of scars, wrinkles, and stretch marks. This procedure is a new way of achieving skin tightening without any serious facelift surgeries that are more invasive. 

Surgical Labiaplasties

Surgical labiaplasties are increasing in popularity as more women are seeking out procedures to correct asymmetry or other aesthetic concerns with their vulvas. This process is a procedure that reduces the size of the labia minora, which are flaps of skin on either side of the vaginal opening. It is performed using local anesthesia and takes around an hour to complete. This is an aesthetic surgery that helps women feel more confident about the appearance of their labia.


Rhinoplasty continues to be one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures year after year. While many people seek this surgery out for functional reasons (to fix a deviated septum, for example), an increasing number of people are undergoing rhinoplasties for cosmetic reasons as well. The primary types of rhinoplasties available, open and closed, patients have options in 2022 with what type of nose surgery best suits their needs.

Breast Augmentations

Breast augmentation is a surgery to increase the size of a woman’s breasts. This surgery helps to lift and reposition the breast and nipples, and it raises the breasts to their natural position on the chest, giving the woman a more youthful and toned appearance. In 2022, we will continue to see the numbers of this surgery rise as women are looking to have fuller breasts and a youthful appearance.

Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)

While you may think that the Brazilian butt lift (BBL) was just a cosmetic surgery fad, its popularity has not slowed down! A BBL procedure is a fat-transfer process where fat cells from one area of the body (belly, thighs, or hips) are removed via liposuction and injected into the buttocks. The BBL results in a shapelier backside that helps tone your future and enhances your physique.
