Zoom face anxiety and cosmetic surgery demand

As employees start to head back to work, cosmetic surgery clinics have seen a surge in demand. One of the main reasons cited is thought to be the popularity of Zoom calls while workers were forced into lockdown.

Being forced to stare at their own face during these calls, many people have become more aware of their appearance. Now that they are returning to work, they want to correct their imperfections such as wrinkles and laughter lines.

Here, we’ll look at the rise in cosmetic surgery right now and the most popular procedures being requested.

How has cosmetic surgery demand risen?

Cosmetic surgery clinics around the world have noted an increase in cosmetic surgery demand. As many employees are still furloughed and companies are extending their work from home policy into 2021, they have had the time to undergo and recover from cosmetic surgery. It is the perfect time to hide any work carried out. The use of face masks is also helping to keep facial surgery hidden.

However, it is mostly those looking to get back to work who have had to use platforms such as Zoom, who are mostly seeking cosmetic treatments. Being made to look at their faces as they video call with friends, family and colleagues has caused issues with self-esteem. So, they have booked in for treatments to correct imperfections before they have to return to work.

Which procedures are proving popular?

The treatments being requested right now are varied. Patients are requesting everything from minor tweaks through anti-wrinkle injections to full mommy makeovers. However, it’s the facial treatments which are really surging in popularity.

Face masks cleverly hide the lower part of the face. So, they are helping patients undergo procedures such as chin augmentation, rhinoplasty, lip fillers and anti-wrinkle injections. Minimally invasive procedures remain the most popular. However, there has been a significant rise in surgical treatments too thanks to patients having more time to recover.

Is now a good time to have surgery?

There are a few factors patients need to consider before they undergo surgery right now. Many clinics are inundated with patients so there may be a long waiting list depending upon the procedure you’re booking.

If you are off work for some time and you can afford it, now is the perfect time to schedule a surgery. You’ll have a lot of time to recover and you’ll be able to keep the work hidden until any bruising and swelling has gone down.

Before undergoing any cosmetic procedure, it’s important to book a consultation. This will give you the opportunity to learn more about the procedure and the type of results you can expect. You’ll also learn about the risks and complications involved, enabling you to make the best decision on whether or not the treatment is right for you.

Overall, it isn’t hard to see why demand has risen after the lockdown. There is also the fact that the lockdown has led to an increase in anxiety which might be fuelling an interest in face or body enhancements, but it is imperative that you are choosing cosmetic surgery for the right reasons.
