The Aesthetic Society has released its 2022 predictions detailing what aesthetic plastic surgery trends are expected in the coming year. With more than 2,600 board-certified plastic surgeons comprising its membership, The Aesthetic Society is at the forefront of research, education, and what lies ahead for the aesthetic industry. Insight from its members includes specific trends persisting from the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, more procedures performed at once to quell demand, and young patients requesting procedures that are popular among middle-aged adults.
According to data from Aesthetic Society members using the Aesthetic Neural Network (ANN) data, powered by Ronan Solutions, from January 1, 2021-July 1, 2021, Americans spent over $8.7 billion on aesthetic plastic surgery—hinting that 2021 may close the year in record-breaking revenue numbers. In 2020, Americans spent over $6 billion on aesthetic surgical procedures and over $3 billion on nonsurgical aesthetic procedures. After an unprecedented year in 2020, including restrictions on elective procedures, the aesthetics industry has seen a spike in demand for plastic surgery that has yet to subside.
“2021 was a unique year for our specialty given the COVID-19 pandemic and adjusting to the various changes it caused,” says William P. Adams, Jr., MD, President of The Aesthetic Society. “Demand is stronger than ever and likely won’t let up in the new year. Still, our members are an elite group using the safest, most advanced techniques. 2022 will give our membership even more opportunity to provide the safest care to the growing patient population.”
2022 Plastic Surgery Predictions:
Blepharoplasty was the top surgical procedure among 50–80-year-olds from January 2021- July 2021. Yet, Aesthetic Society member surgeons predict younger women pursuing eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty in 2022—a possible effect of the virtual meeting boom. Aesthetic Society members project the ubiquity of virtual meetings will continue to motivate patients to seek facial procedures to resolve issues they may not have noticed before, seeking out surgical and nonsurgical skin treatments. The leading nonsurgical treatment in the first 6 months of 2021 were neurotoxin injections, making up 54.25% of the top 5 nonsurgical procedures.
