For years ago the industry has been geared to wiping away wrinkles. A smooth, forehead and a wrinkle-free face have been the measure of youth. But fast-forward to 2016 and we’ll see a surprising shift – we are no longer obsessed with looking ten years younger but realising that looking healthy and happy for the age we are is far more attractive. Rejuvenating not reversing the hands of time is the way forward and skin quality not wrinkles is the new buzzword. The latest procedures are focused on minimising pores, correcting sun damage and uneven colouring and promoting radiance . Non-surgical Facelifts, including the new sculpting facelifts which aim to reposition the fat and restructure the face to lift and redefine contours whilst restoring volume without going under the knife are the next big thing in facial rejuvenation

*Make way for the rise of the C cup , predicted to be the most favourite bust size in 2016 . The popularity of larger breast implants is waning and women are no longer requesting DD or E cups but opting for a smaller C size or less following in the footsteps of most favourite smaller chested celebrities such as Victoria Beckham, Kate Hudson, Rihanna and Gwen Stefani. The trend for smaller busts is also reflected in an increase in breast reduction surgery predicted to be one of the top five procedures this year.
*Prevention is another key buzz word this year as more women realise that looking great is all about combining lifestyle changes with regular mini procedures to restore collagen and boost skin quality – PRP procedures which uses a patient’s own blood , is now being used to restore scalp health and thicken thinning eyebrows
*Sixty is the new 40 is so last year. This year seventy is the new 50, and there is nothing stopping today’s active seniors from looking as young as they feel and act. More and more women and men in 70s and even 80’s are undergoing cosmetic treatments to maintain a youthful appearance. As less invasive techniques continue to evolve, coupled with people living better and longer, there is really no maximum age for cosmetic procedures anymore, A recent study showing that even octogenarians are at no higher risk for complications from cosmetic surgery when compared to their younger counterparts will likely encourage even more seniors to seek cosmetic enhancements this year.
* Male patients currently account for around 15 per cent of all cosmetic procedures and this year it’s predicted that the number of men booking in for treatments, will be up by more than 200 per cent.Spending time and money on your looks is no longer seen as unmanly . Twenty years ago it was unheard of, but now no one blinks an eye at the sight of a man buying a moisturiser or having a manicure.Topping men’s shopping lists will be jawline and chin remodelling, chemical peels, acne scar removal and Botox – dubbed Boytox –-while most popular surgical procedures will chest and nose surgery, as well bottom sculpting and pec implants.
