PEARLAND, TX, January 12, 2011 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The plastic surgery industry has experienced its up and downs in the last decade. As we enter the second decade of the third millennium, Houston-area plastic surgeon Dr. Leo Lapuerta of the Plastic Surgery Institute of Southeast Texas offers his prediction for where the industry will be going in the next year, decade, and century.
"Curvy women will continue to be the beauty icons this year," says Dr. Lapuerta. "As women seek to emulate that standard of beauty, we will see an even bigger emphasis on body contouring procedures--like liposuction and tummy tucks--that help women to achieve the hourglass figure that distinguishes celebrities like Christina Hendricks. We will also see an emphasis on buttock augmentation as women strive to get a look like Kim Kardashian. The top five plastic surgery procedures for 2011 will be: liposuction, breast augmentation, rhinoplasty, tummy tuck, and blepharoplasty.
"In the next decade, we should get answers to all the remaining questions we have about the safety and effectiveness of breast augmentation using fat transfer (http://www.lookyounger.net/breast-augmentation.html). The techniques will be perfected and it will become a dependable alternative. It probably still won't completely replace breast implants for augmentation, but will become the preferred method for women desiring modest improvement in the size of their breasts.
"In the next century, we may learn how to control the body's mechanisms for fat deposition, allowing men and women to get the fat distribution they desire. We may also unlock the secrets of aging skin, the genetic triggers that make your skin act differently at age 50 than it does at age 20. This will allow men and women to continue enjoying the same appearance throughout their lifetimes."
