What is LA Ideal?Posted on June 5, 2017
It is no secret that plastic surgery has become synonymous with Los Angeles and Beverly Hills in particular. The image of the big breasted Beverly Hills trophy babe as the stereotypical plastic surgery patient is dated at best, according to a recent LA online article. The demand for plastic surgery crosses every ethnic group according to the article. For example, hair extensions while not actually plastic surgery are now commonplace in LA with many opting for long faux locks over real hair. Full lips , like Angelina Jolie’s appear to be the gold standard for lips. Lip augmentation has almost doubled between 2010 and 2011 according to the article. Flawlessly smooth skin has also become an LAs staple and 92% of patients are women who make up the more than 1 million who have chemical peels nationwide. based on 2011 figures. The tanned look is definitely out. Ethnic noses are one of the top five most popular cosmetic procedures in the United States. LA surgeons contend that the trend in Hispanic, Middle Eastern, and African-American patients is to refine the nose rather than alter the overall shape. Breast augmentation sizing has become smaller with the understanding that implants are still larger than natural breast . The preference according to LA surgeons is a more natural looking, proportionate size breast that balances an hourglass shape. A shapely butt is another LA demand.
