Eyebrow trends for 2012 are shaping up to be an even greater departure from the high-arched look of the past, according to a recent style news report from the Huffington Post. Unlike the thin, heavily tweezed arches of former decades, today’s brows are moving increasingly in favor of a no-arch look. A study in the Clinical Plastic Surgery journal suggests that, before long, arched brows may be a thing of the past – and that this trend may in turn have an impact on patient interest in endoscopic brow lift and aesthetic forehead plastic surgery.

When performed by a board certified plastic surgeon, breast reduction surgery is a safe way to adjust the size and shape of the breasts to suit each patient’s individual vision.

What is chin augmentation plastic surgery? According to a recent piece for Fox News, chin implants are swiftly becoming one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures available. Designed to strengthen a weak or underdeveloped chin and add greater definition to one’s profile, chin augmentation surgery involves the insertion of an anatomic implant to adjust the chin’s placement and proportion. Male and female patients who are concerned about a sagging neck, overly emphasized nose or a poorly defined jaw may be good candidates for chin surgery. And because the procedure is performed using a small, subtle incision, there are fewer complication risks and downtime requirements for plastic surgery patients.

For years, plastic surgery was seen as a women’s market; but these days, plastic surgery for men is enjoying a slow but steady rise.

In turn, men have begun to follow suit; and now, the tough economy and competitive job market have made male and female applicants alike increasingly aware of the role appearance plays in hirability.
