Plastic surgeons nationwide have seen a significant growth in plastic surgery patients post-pandemic. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), 76% of plastic surgeons have reported an increase in cosmetic surgery demands within their practice. The motives for plastic surgery vary from patient to patient. Some patients simply want to look more refreshed since they’re beginning to transition to working in-office. On the other hand, some patients reported noticing post-pandemic body changes due to inactivity and aging due to stress. Whatever your reason may be, Dr. Crofts and his staff are here to accommodate your cosmetic surgery needs.
The top cosmetic procedures patients are seeking in 2022:
Liposuction is the number 1 most popular procedure mentioned from the top 5 plastic surgery trends in 2022. Liposuction is a procedure that removes unwanted and/or stubborn fat using a cannula.
According to research done by the Journal of American Medical Association, Americans on average gained an estimated 1.5 pounds per month due to inactivity during the lockdown in 2020. This weight gain is most likely the reason for the significant increase in liposuction procedures post-pandemic era.
One of the reasons for the surge in facelift surgeries is that people began noticing things they want to improve during video calls according to the study done by ASPS. One of the most important factors to consider when searching for a facelift plastic surgeon is the surgeon’s experience. A plastic surgeon’s experience and credentials are critical with any facial procedure to make sure he or she will give the most beautiful, natural, and youthful results all while preserving nerves and minimizing incisions.

- Tummy Tuck
Tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, came in at number 4 of the most popular cosmetic procedures. A tummy tuck restores the abdomen for a more youthful and firm appearance. An abdominoplasty is one of the more common procedures used in combination procedures, such as a mommy makeover. ASPS’ study found that 80% of patients are looking into combination procedures. A mommy makeover, or mommy takeover, is a combination of procedures to restore women’s bodies after giving birth.
- Breast Lift
Breast lift procedures were one of the most mentioned post-pandemic procedures that women were seeking over the age of 31. There are different techniques used with this cosmetic surgery trend, but ultimately, a breast lift procedure removes sagging tissue and repositions the nipples to give the breasts a youthful, firm appearance.
