RealSelf.com, a customer review site released top trends in cosmetic surgery for the spring and summer in 2012.

Botox® is still very popular with patients. Fillers for the face have also seen an increase this spring and summer. "Nonsurgical options are popular in the summer because there is minimal downtime," says Dr. Carey Nease, a triple-board certified facial plastic and cosmetic surgeon. "It allows the patient to come in one day and be back in the pool with their kids the next."

Brazilian Butt Lifts are seeing an increase in popularity. Curvy celebrities such as Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez have helped with what RealSelf.com shows as a 28% increase in this procedure. Realself.com also says patients satisfaction is also very high at 93%.

Dr. Deal is the South's premier surgeon for Brazilian Butt Lifts. In fact, he has taught at two AACS symposiums in the past year and taught the procedure to a group of cosmetic and plastic surgeons from around the world in St. Louis last month. "This is one of my favorite procedures to perform as patients are highly satisfied with the results," says Dr. Chad Deal at Southern Surgical Arts. "Patients love the feminine curves the procedure provides."

The Mommy Makeover is still popular in the summer, even though it requires some downtime.  The combination of procedures usually include breast augmentation, breast lift (with or without implants), a tummy tuck and liposuctionThe American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) reports that breast augmentation and tummy tucks were two of the most popular procedures of 2011. RealSelf also says that online searches for this procedure is up 13 percent over the past year. 98% of patients said the Mommy Makeover surgery was "worth it."
