RealSelf Trends features the editorial stories our data has to tell. Help us elevate the conversation around life beyond the beauty counter and move the needle away from the norm of gawking and shame.

About RealSelf

Since its founding in 2006, RealSelf has created the world’s largest community for learning and sharing information about cosmetic surgery, dermatology, dentistry, and other elective treatments. Our extensive collections of reviews, photos, and doctor Q&A make RealSelf the most trusted resource for those who are researching potential changes to their bodies.

What’s a trend?

A trend is a documentable pattern observed on RealSelf. It provides insight into a newsworthy conversation.
