Which 2017 Plastic Surgery Trend is Right For You?

Today, more and more Canadians are investing in the skills of qualified plastic surgeons to help them look and feel their very best. Learn all about the 2017 plastic surgery trends and which procedures might be best for you. 

Plastic surgery has become increasingly popular over recent years with a number of women and men opting for a variety of procedures to improve their physical appearance. However, working with a plastic surgeon can have more than just cosmetic benefits.

 When done by a board-certified plastic surgeon, cosmetic procedures can improve your:

  • Physical health
  • Self-esteem
  • Mental health
  • Personal and professional opportunities

 At Peterson MD, we have a team of qualified and professional plastic surgeons who offer a wide range of cosmetic procedures from facelifts and breast augmentations to non-surgical, anti-aging skin treatments including Botox and chemical peels to help you meet all your aesthetic goals.


2017 Trends in Plastic Surgery - Which is Right For You?

The demand for cosmetic plastic surgery procedures in Canada continues to increase, among both men and women of all ages. Some of the most popular procedures this year include:

Breast Augmentation

A breast augmentation involves the use of saline or silicone implants, or in some cases fat transfer, to increase the size of your breasts, achieve a more rounded shape and/or improve natural breast size asymmetry.

One of the most popular and frequently performed plastic surgery procedures, breast augmentation has proven to satisfy millions of women wishing to regain or restore balance to their figures.

Plastic Surgeons Often Recommend This For Women Who:

  • Are looking to improve the shape/size of their breasts after pregnancy, breastfeeding or weight loss
  • Wish to restore symmetry to their breasts
  • Have increased breast tissue laxity due to age, causing a sagging appearance
  • Want a better proportioned, more aesthetically pleasing figure
  • Want their clothes to fit better



A facelift is one of the most successful approaches to treating facial aging including wrinkles and sagging. This plastic surgery procedure works by removing excess skin, tightening underlying tissues and muscles, while redraping the skin on your face and neck.

 This safe and effective procedure helps both men and women restore a bright and youthful appearance that they can enjoy for many years to come.

Plastic Surgeons Often Recommend Facelifts For Patients Who Have:

  • Sagging skin in their mid-face and/or jaw line
  • Displaced facial fat (loss of volume)
  • ‘Jowls’ - Sagging or loss of muscle tone in the lower face
  • Creased and/or sagging neck skin
  • A double chin or excess fatty deposits under jaw



Liposuction is a surgical body contouring procedure which is used by plastic surgeons to eliminate unwanted pockets of fat from all areas of your body including arms, neck, back, thighs, hips and buttocks.

 Designed to remove diet and exercise-resistant fat, liposuction can often be combined with other plastic surgery procedures including an abdominoplasty, to help patients achieve their desired shape.

Plastic Surgeons Often Recommend Liposuction For Patients Who Have:

  • Have localized areas of fat deposits that are disproportionate with the rest of their body
  • Are no more than 20 pounds overweight
  • Would like more definition or sleeker definition in certain areas of their body
  • Have good skin elasticity


Eyelid Surgery

Upper eyelid excess skin and fat can often create a heavy looking eyelid, an aged appearance, puffiness and, in some cases, block vision. Eyelid surgery is designed to remove the excess skin and fat, thereby improving the appearance of your eyelids as well as your field of vision.

When performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon, an eyelid surgery is a safe and effective way of removing any excess skin and/or fat on the eyelids for a more alert, brighter and youthful appearance.

This Plastic Surgery is Recommended For Patients Who:

  • Impaired vision due to loose upper eyelid skin
  • Dark circles and/or bags beneath their eyes
  • Eyelid wrinkles
  • A puffy appearance to the upper eyelids
  • Excess skin and/or fat on the upper eyelids


The Growing Trend of Non-Surgical Cosmetic Treatments

In today’s fast paced world, with patients wanting to look and feel their very best, many people do not have time to undergo extensive plastic surgery and the subsequent recovery periods. That’s why more and more Kelowna patients are opting for non-surgical cosmetic treatments.

Non-surgical Cosmetic Treatments vs Traditional Plastic Surgery

Less invasive than surgical procedures, non-surgical cosmetic treatments such as Botox and dermal fillers are often recommended by plastic surgeons because they don’t require surgical incisions or general anesthesia and can be carried out with minimal interruption to your day-to-day life.

Some of the incredible benefits you will receive from these treatments include:

  • Quicker treatment times
  • Little to no downtime
  • Lower costs
  • Dramatic, long lasting effects
  • Fewer side effects
  • No surgical risks

Latest Testimonial

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
