  • Plastic Surgery Trends in 2023

With a New Year approaching and the prospect of each of us setting new goals considering your health, fitness, financial, career and appearance, Expat Choice talks to Singapore based Brazilian Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Marco Faria Correa to discuss Plastic Surgery trends to look out for in 2023.

“It’s not just women who take pride in their appearance”, explains Dr. Marco, “men share in the same interest with equal part and desire.” Dr. Marco has witnessed a steady increase in demand from males requesting for plastic surgery procedures post-pandemic to maintain and restore their physique to a more youthful and healthy form and there is no sign of this trend slowing down.

He openly shares, “the statistics speak volumes. Upon visiting my clinic here in Singapore, men frequently wish to discuss male plastic surgery procedures and suitable options.”

Truth be known, men are increasingly more aware of their options on hand when addressing cosmetic improvements to their body image. This is largely fuelled by today’s selfie-obsessed social media culture, and the rise of less invasive procedures.

In getting down to the brass tacks of male plastic surgery, Dr. Marco is presented with the question lingering on our minds – What are the most preferred and popular male plastic surgery procedures in Singapore requested for by men?

According to Dr Marco’s knowledge and experience – men who are discovering and looking for aesthetic procedures most frequently aim at options such as facial ageing, abdomen, and localised body fat. Therefore, the Plastic Surgery procedures most sought after by men are Facial Rejuvenation, Abdominoplasty and Liposuction.

Liposuction is a surgical procedure, based off using a suction technique for removing fat from specific areas of the body to reshape and contour areas such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, or neck. It is a type of cosmetic procedure which targets fat removal in stubborn areas of the body. With this understanding, it is an excellent cosmetic procedure to achieve a defined muscular physique.

Dr. Marco goes on to list the following run through of treatments which males request most often in the link below.

According to Dr Marco, an increasing number of female and male patients presenting with small and medium-size abdominal cosmetic deformities are coming to his clinic asking for Minimally Invasive and Scarless procedures that can effectively improve the aesthetic appearance of the abdomen.

Robotic and Endoscopic Abdominoplasty or Tummy Tuck are often carried out with physical and aesthetically pleasing results including:

  • a flat abdomen
  • toned and tightened abdomen by repairing the Rectus Diastasis gap or abdominal gap
  • strengthened core muscles, leading to decrease stress on the spine
  • satisfactory aesthetic and functional results
  • improve self-body image, self-esteem, and self-confidence.

Sometimes liposuction is conducted in the hip area to achieve a slimmer and more contoured look. Robotic and Endoscopic Surgery are the “Gold Standard” of Minimally Invasive Surgery in Singapore in many surgical fields, especially because these procedures present so many advantages over the open surgery methods.

According to Dr Marco it´s important for your Plastic Surgeon to assess case by case, to understand the real and particular needs of the patient, and to choose the indicated technique that will help to achieve a natural and appropriate result for the patient´s silhouette.

“In our Clinic”, commented Dr Marco, “we tailor our surgical plans and treatments by considering the anatomy of each particular patient, whether male or female”.

One of the best-known Plastic Surgery extreme makeover procedures is called the Mommy Makeover. Many women work very hard to lose excess weight after pregnancy, only to find themselves with sagging skin and extra fat cells despite their efforts. The Mommy Makeover targets the areas that are most impacted by childbirth, and this could include Breast Lift or Breast Augmentation, Liposuction, and Tummy Tuck.

The Mommy Makeover is considered ‘extreme,’ because it addresses so many issues at one time and the results can be dramatic. However, top-notch surgeons’ teamwork to combine necessary procedures into one strategic and highly individualised operation – which requires one equally individualised recovery programme.

Whatever “extreme makeover plastic surgery” might mean to you – if a professional has declared you healthy enough for surgical procedures – it is yours to have if you want it!

According to Dr Marco, the result of Extreme Makeover brings to the patient a new body silhouette – improving self-body image, self-esteem, and self-confidence.​​​​​​​

What's New in 2023

​​​A ground-breaking aesthetic beauty procedure Dr. Marco Faria Correa Plastic Surgeon in Singapore offers in 2023 is a new plasma and radio-frequency technology procedure - the latest advance in cosmetic technology. As a result of extensive scientific research and clinical development, plasma and radio-frequency technology has been described as ideal for medical cosmetic procedures where precision and control are key to an effective treatment. So, how does it work?

Energy is applied beneath the skin, causing the tissue contraction. The helium plasma and proprietary radio-frequency RF energy allows for precisely controlled delivery of heat to tissue, with minimal thermal spread​. The effect of the tissue contraction is often noticeable immediately after the initial procedure, although the effect of the treatment may continue to improve over time.​​​​​​​

Upon the closure of our session, Dr Marco shared the following with Expat Choice, “we tailor treatments specifically to the male aesthetic, by considering male anatomy and individual goals for treatment – while simultaneously maintaining a masculine appearance, to improve self-body image, self-esteem, and self-confidence.”

Dr Marco is a pragmatic surgeon who has mastered the minimally invasive and the traditional open methods by applying the latest techniques for properly concealing the scars in the anatomical folds and crease, leaving inconspicuous scars. He performs not only Plastic Surgery, and Non-Surgical Aesthetics treatments, but also Reconstructive and Microsurgery. ​​​​​​​

He is well-versed in the various benefits and limitations of the different procedures and methods available, hence, he will always take care to consistently advise his patients on what is the best option to achieve the outcome that he/ she personally wants to result in.
