Historically, plastic surgery trends were predictable. Breast augmentations were popular before spring break, while Halloween through Christmas was the busiest time of the year. The pandemic introduced some twists and turns that affected traditional trends. However, the demand for the main type of breast implants remains unchanged.   

Here are the most trending plastic surgeries of 2022. 

  • Breast augmentation.
  • Rhinoplasty.
  • Brazilian butt lift.
  • Tummy Tuck.
  • Eyelid surgery.
  • Liposuction.
  • Body contouring.

After spending two years at home, and countless hours on video calls, many people became conscious of their physical flaws. Life is getting back to normal. People are travelling again. However, the interest in plastic surgery hasn’t diminished. 

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation has been popular for years, and it continues to trend in 2022. It is a popular cosmetic procedure in the US, with over 300,000 surgeries annually. 

Some of the procedures under breast augmentation involve increasing the size and volume of the breasts and correcting asymmetrical breasts. Breast reconstruction after a mastectomy is also part of breast augmentation. 

It is also one of the most successful surgeries, with the highest satisfaction rates. 


Rhinoplasty involves reshaping the nose to improve its appearance or correct damage. Some people also seek rhinoplasty to improve breathing. Over 200,000 men and women seek rhinoplasty procedures annually. 

Brazilian Butt Lift

Brazilian butt lift (BBL) has been popular for years, and there is no sign that the demand will diminish anytime soon. BBL is a process that involves the transfer of fat cells from one part of the body (hips, thighs, or belly) and moving them to the buttocks. This procedure is standard for women seeking a more shapely butt and a balanced, attractive physique. 

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck is a process that involves the removal of excess skin around the tummy. Plastic surgeons tighten the abdominal muscles, resulting in a flatter, firmer abdomen. Tummy tuck is common amongst women who wish to get back their pre-baby bodies. People who have lost weight but are left with sagging skin and tissues also seek a tummy tuck. 

Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery was not on the list of popular cosmetic treatments for years. However, it is one of the treatments that are trending in 2022. It involves the removal of excess skin tissues and fat in the upper or lower eyelids. 

It is a solution for people with eye bags or drooping skin under the eye. Some people also opt for eye surgery to dramatically change their appearance. Others seek a more youthful appearance. 


Liposuction is a surgical procedure that is not taking a back seat in 2022. It involves the removal of excess or stubborn fat in the upper and lower abdomen and the sides of the waistline. 

Most patients seeking liposuction want a thinner, smoother waistline and a shapely silhouette. 

Body Contouring

The pandemic came with its share of problems. However, for many individuals, weight gain was a price they paid for staying at home for more than 18 months with little physical activity. 

After months of weight gain, people are now back in the gym and are dieting to lose weight. Body contouring helps tighten and repair stretched skin and damaged tissues.
