Playing Top New Plastic Surgery Trends

The following material contains graphic images of an actual surgery that may be disturbing. Parents are advised that these images may not be suitable for young children.

Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon is joined by plastic surgeon Dr. Ashkan Ghavami to talk big plastic surgery trends of this year. Dr. Ordon has two words for viewers: fat transfer. He shares that surgeons are now taking fat from one area and repurposing it in another part of the body.

Dr. Ordon shows photos of one of his patients who he performed liposuction of the abdomen, hips and flanks on. Since she wasn’t a candidate for silicone breast implants, he added the fat from her liposuction to her breast and says the results are “wonderful.” Dr. Ordon says fat transfer is being seen in facial rejuvenation as well, since often with aging the face loses volume and people need more fat there.

Dr. Ghavami warns that fat transfers are no joke and people should make sure to see a board-certified plastic surgeon for any cosmetic procedure. He says they have seen disasters with improper fat transfers in the butt and adds if done incorrectly, the fat could get injected into veins.

The next trend which is making a comeback is rhinoplasty. The latest desired look? Meghan Markle’s nose. Dr. Ghavami says the root of rhinoplasty is ethnic because it began in 500 B.C. in India. He loves that Meghan's face is racially congruent, meaning that it doesn’t look awkward on her and the proportions match her face. ER physician Dr. Travis Stork notes that sometimes, surgeons need to tell people the nose they want isn’t right for their face.

Luckily for one of Dr. Ghavami’s patients, Sara, when she wanted a nose that resembled Iggy Azalea’s (who received rhinoplasty from Dr. Ghavami), Dr. Ghavami was able to give her that look. Sara disliked her “booty” nose, saying that the tip of it looked like a butt. The Doctors go inside the operating room to see her surgery.

Sara joins The Doctors in the audience and loves her new nose! Dr. Ordon notes that the days of old-fashioned cookbook nose jobs are gone!
