Softer, more natural looks are in this season, according to a recent report from the plastic surgery information and customer review website RealSelf.com. Botox and dermal fillers have mostly supplanted more obvious procedures.
The RealSelf Medi-Beauty Trend Report is a seasonal report that highlights recent developments in the world of plastic and cosmetic surgeries. According to one plastic surgeon cited in the report, “We’re going back again to a little bit more conservative, very natural looking procedures, whether invasive or non-invasive. That duck lip is a thing of the past.”

Brazilian butt lift surgery has risen to become the fourth most popular procedure on Realself.com. In recent months, the procedure has seen a 28% increase in searches. The report attributes part of the popularity of the Brazilian butt lift to curvaceous figures like Jennifer Lopez and Sophia Vergara.
