Over the last decade, the prevalence of casual injectables, Love Island lip fillers and plastic surgery has climbed to increasing heights.
In 2019, high-street drugstore Superdrug even began offering lip fillers in some of its shops, but now an aesthetic doctor has revealed that a more natural look is becoming more popular.
Professor Syed Haq, a pioneer of the cosmetics industry with 20 years of experience, told the MailOnline that requests for lip fillers and breast implants has decreased – with subtle ‘tweakments’ being the order of the day.
Patients are more often than not referencing Kate Middleton’s natural look when requesting the ‘Happy Face’ treatment, where lines are smoothed and filler is injected into the corners of the lips to lift downturned smiles.
Other trends include ear-reshaping, anti-acing knee lifts and ‘Instagram Face’, where features are reshaped using filler and Botox.
Professor Haq, who works on Harley Street, reveals the top aesthetic trends expected to take off in 2020.
The ‘Happy Face’ procedure uses filler to lift the corners of the lips and smooth frown lines, making the client look brighter, and more cheerful.
Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, is often used as an example of the secured end result.
Professor Haq commented: “The Duchess of Cambridge has a beautiful face but what makes her even more adored by the public is her friendly, happy and engaging expression which gives everyone added reassurance and confidence.
“People with a naturally down turned smile, furrowed brow look forever under pressure and anxious.”
Spanish Bum Lift
Inspired by Rihanna’s peachy behind, this alternative to the Brazilian Bum Lift, which requires the transfer of fat to the buttocks and hips, is far less invasive.
The Indiba Deep Care procedure uses pro-ionic technology and electrical transfers – so it saves patients from having to go under the knife.
Professor Haq pointed out: “More and more people are opting for non-invasive procedures to get a ‘bum like Rihanna’ – especially when they can give outstanding results without a needle or knife.”
Apparently even ears are bing scrutinised in 2020, with clients requesting ear-reshaping in order to achieve ears which are small and symmetrical like Cara Delevigne’s.
Octoplasty, which is often performed on children with sticking-out ears, can also involve using a filler to soften creases on the earlobe which provides an anti-acing effect.
Doe Eyed Laser
Laser surgery isn’t just used on patients who want to improve their eyesight.
According to Professor Haq, people are using it to tighten the eyelid area and smooth the skin.
He added: “Blepharoplasty by Aerolase involves the removal of lax skin and fat deposits from the eyelids to achieve the doe-eyed look like celebrity Angelina Jolie.”
For those lusting over the luscious locks of Gigi Hadid, this could be the solution.
‘Hair Line Filler’ is where perfectly matched colour is added to the parting to disguise hair thinning – so you don’t have to take any pricey supplements.
This procedure is most common post-baby, during menopause, stress and anxiety.
A name which often crops up in relation to this trend is Rosie Huntington-Whitely, the supermodel who has full lips and a defined jawline.
As many aren’t naturally blessed with these sharp characteristics, they turn to cosmetic experts for hell.
Professor Haq explained: “This is where clients want their full face contoured with filler to match the filters on Instagram and the celebrities they follow.”
Full Body Lipo
Since model and actress Amber Rose had post-baby liposuction the demand for the procedure has increased.
Professor Haq, however, warns the post-pregnancy lips can be unsafe if performed prematurely as the weight fluctuation and hormonal imbalance can cause issues.
This anti-acing procedure requires viscoelastic hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers and skin boosters to smooth the appearance of the knee.
Professor Haq says that he is frequently requested to give clients “legs like Lopez.”
Red Liquid Lift
Forget the Vampire Facelift, this skincare op is surging in popularity.
Professor Haq added: “The use of the Red Liquid Lift is being increasingly used as a synergistic approach to rejuvenating the face, neck and décolletage areas and works by injecting dermal fillers into the skin to plump up the skin, a non invasive procedure.”
