It’s not surprising that cosmetic surgery has been reaching new heights over the past few years. With celebrities like the Kardashian clan and various instagram stars' pixelated perfection popping up on newsfeeds, people have become aware of their own images and are looking to enhance their appeal with cosmetic surgery tweaks.

But it isn’t the slice and dice type of procedure that’s at the forefront of 2017’s hottest rejuvenation trend. With a selfie-generated society, we are seeing more “lunchtime” procedures, starring an array of non-invasive treatments, including liquid facelifts, lip augmentations, PRP injections, and macrolane. We’ve become a society of a la carte beauty with no commitment needed.

For both young women struggling with thin lips and older women suffering from the loss of volume in their once plump pouts, Lip augmentation allows them to boost the volume back up to full, supple mouths.

Hyaluronic Acid fillers are not only restoring volume to mature women’s cheekbones and plumping up the skin to erase the sharp creases of their laugh lines, but younger women are using them to enhance their cheekbones, define their jawlines and smooth away lines for perfectly natural airbrushed appearances.

PRP treatments that initially gained popularity as the vampire facial are now being used for hair regrowth and vaginal rejuvenation.

Macrolane and Sculptra are being used for body contouring and noninvasively increasing the size of the buttox and breasts.

PDO Thread lifts are wildly popular in Asia and Europe, and this minimally invasive facelift is making its way to being one of the most sought after minimally invasive facelift procedures in the States. With little barbed threads, PDO thread lifts are able to achieve natural lifting while stimulating natural collagen production. It also has significantly less downtime than a standard facelift.
