From vaginal rejuvenation and butt lifts, to fat freezing and skin tightening, here are our predictions for the top 5 popular treatments your going to see more of in 2016
Cool Sculpting, Trusculpt and Ultrascultp
Controlled cooling technology is used to freeze fat cells in the treated area. The fat cells subsequently die and are permanently eliminated from the body. These fat freezing treatments are non surgical and claim to have no down time. They are however, no alternative to traditional liposuction and are better suited to smaller stubborn areas such as the love handles, chin and tummy pouch.

Mona Lisa Touch
Mona lisa touch is touted as a non surgical, walk in walk out procedure for vaginal rejuvenation and vaginal tightening. This 20 minuet procedure uses a laser which is inserted into the vagina to deliver fractional CO2 laser energy to the vaginal wall. Stress incontinence, urinary urgency, light bladder leakage, painful intercourse, loss of vaginal elasticity, vaginal dryness and vaginal tightness are said to all be treatable by the Mona Lisa Touch.
Brazilian Butt lift
More and more people are interested in the brazilian butt lift and we can probably thank the Kardashians for this one. Technically speaking, BBL usually refers to all procedures that improve the appearance of the butt, however most people these days are seeking fat transfer to the buttocks to increase the size, shape and projection of the derrière. Fat is liposuctioned from other areas of the body such as the flanks, legs or tummy and then transferred into the butt.

Ultrasound skin tightening
Skin tightening treatments such as Ultherapy use ultrasound waves that stimulates collagen production to lift, tone and tighten loose skin. Its non surgical and apparently has no down time. Ultrasound skin tightening is already hugely popular, particularly in the US, however as technology advances and more and more clinics begin to offer this procedure, we predict even more people will flock for this procedure before they head for the surgical route.
Along with fat grafting to the buttocks, fat grafting in general is on the rise with more and more surgeons using fat grafting in the face, breast and body. Fat grafting can be used instead of fillers in the face to restore volume and create a more youthful appearance. This technique can also be used in place of breast implants for patients who don’t want a foreign prosthesis in their body but still desire an increased breast size or it can also be used along with breast implants to provide more tailored results.
