It goes without saying, plastic surgery is on the rise in 2020. Wherever you look, you’ll find someone who has had a procedure done on them, whether it be minimal fillers in one’s lips or more invasive procedures such as liposculpture and rhinoplasty. In fact, as of 2019, there were over a quarter of a million more cosmetic procedures performed than in 2018. So, why the sudden increase in popularity? Today, we will have a look at some of the reasons society is embracing plastic surgery, so read on to find out more.

1. Acceptance Is At An All-Time High

When speaking to experts in plastic surgery in Melbourne, it was revealed that one of the main reasons plastic surgery is on the rise is due to an increasing level of acceptance in recent years. Rewind to 20 years ago and you would see that plastic surgery was a very “hush hush” topic that no one desired to speak about. The rise in social media and posts about people undergoing and recovering from plastic surgery has made cosmetic procedures a mainstream topic of discussion that is more accepted than it ever was in the past.

2. More Affordability

In the recent past, plastic surgery was always an option that only the wealthy could afford. Due to high costs, cosmetic surgery was always seen as something that only celebrities or high flyers were privileged enough to experience. Fast forward to today and you’ll come to realise that the majority of people going under the knife come from middle-class backgrounds. In other words, plastic surgery is no longer just for the stereotypical Beverly Hills wife. With procedures now set at more affordable prices, plastic surgery is an available option to a larger portion of society. On top of that, with so many various financing options and payment plans now available to the public, plastic surgery is something that the everyday person can undergo.

3. The Rise of Social Media

It is no secret that social media rules the world and it is no surprise that the rise of cosmetic procedures coincides with the age of Instagram. Celebrities such as Kylie Jenner who share information about plastic surgery procedures that they have undergone can be credited for thousands of women around the world getting procedures such as lip fillers, botox and breast augmentation. It is also no secret that many people in the world look up to celebrities and icons, thus resulting in a society that embraces plastic surgery in hopes of attaining a look or aesthetic that is in line with the beauty standards of today.

4. Less Invasive Procedures

Thanks to advances in medical technology, many plastic surgery procedures are now very much less invasive than they used to be. Surgical procedures have evolved to become as minimally invasive as possible, with options such as non-surgical nose jobs, 1-hour liposuction and dermal fillers that can have a patient in and out of a clinic in under a few hours. Less invasive procedures also mean less recovery time which is something that used to be almost unheard of 20 years ago. People can now have procedures done and be back at work within a day, making cosmetic surgery more practical and popular than ever before.

5. The Desire to Be Self Confident

Last but certainly in no way least, the most simple answer of them all - self-confidence. Society embraces plastic surgery for the main reason of people no longer being shy to go the extra mile in building self-confidence. Everyone wants to look and feel good, and with an increase in the promotion of self-confidence and self-love in today’s society, it is no wonder so many aren’t afraid to go under the knife in a bid to build their own self-confidence.


And there you have it - just a few reasons as to why plastic surgery is so embraced in today’s society. We hope that this article has given you some insight into the reasons for the rise of plastic surgery.
