Plastic Surgery During the Zoom Boom

Loeb Staff | February 5, 2021 | Posted in Rhinoplasty Surgery

Early last year, as the pandemic picked up speed, the world slowed down. With people spending most of their time working at home—meetings and phone calls entered the digital era on Zoom. Plastic surgeons have noticed a significant increase in demand for their services to correct imperfections like asymmetrical noses, sagging skin, and double chins because we all want to look our best.

Correcting asymmetrical noses

The nose is the central focal point of the face. When it has an asymmetrical appearance or is out of proportion with the rest of the face, it is highly noticeable, particularly during a Zoom call. Individuals who feel self-conscious about their noses may choose to consult a rhinoplasty surgeon about corrective surgery.

A rhinoplasty involves reshaping the nose’s soft tissues to sculpt it into a more pleasing silhouette. A skilled plastic surgeon can correct asymmetries and may remove or add tissue to create an aesthetically desirable nose. It is a delicate surgery. It’s crucial to visit a plastic surgeon who is board certified and possesses years of experience and a long track record of success.

Drawing attention to the eyes

Masks are a necessity these days, which means there is less attention on the mouth when people are out in public. However, there is a great deal more attention on the eyes. Plastic surgeons are seeing a rise in the requests for eye procedures, including eye lifts. An eye lift, or blepharoplasty, is an effective way to rejuvenate a person’s appearance, making them look more alert and youthful.

This surgery lifts the drooping upper eyelids and improves the sagging, puffy skin of the lower eyelids. An eye lift may be right for patients concerned about wrinkles and excess skin of the lower eyelids—that make-up or the right lighting cannot fix.

Undergoing facelifts

Botox and dermal fillers are effective for rejuvenating the face, but only to a certain extent. If you’re concerned about looking tired during your Zoom meetings, then it may be time to consider a facelift procedure. It doesn’t only address wrinkles; it also corrects loose, sagging skin and loss of muscle tone in the lower face. A facelift can address excess skin and fat deposits underneath the jawline and chin, as well.
