Surprising Silver Linings

The media has been providing on a few explanations as to why the demand for plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures has increased during the pandemic. Some suggest that the general decrease in socializing combined with more time at home and wearing face masks when out have all made this the optimal time for many individuals to get procedures and treatments done. Here at Beverly Hills Physicians, we’ve definitely noticed this trend, especially with patients interested in procedures that require a longer recovery time.

While many individuals are taking advantage of mask usage when it comes to cosmetic procedures and facial rejuvenation with injectables, those interested in surgery should not overlook the opportunity that minimal socializing and working from home provides. Unlike smaller procedures, such as fillers, more significant work, such as a surgical facelift, tummy tuck, or breast augmentation, may require weeks of recovery after the procedure.

Before the pandemic, patients receiving these types of surgeries and treatments would have to make significant changes to their schedules, from taking time off of work to declining invites to important family or social events. Inevitably, this often led to individuals having to explain the reason for their absence.

For those who prefer to have their procedures done quietly and without fanfare, the lack of social obligations while working remotely makes this quarantine time the perfect opportunity to receive plastic surgery. In addition to patients no longer having to unwillingly disclose why they need to take time away from work or other events, they can comfortably recover at home while still keeping up on their responsibilities. By not having to take as much time off from work, many plastic surgery patients are actually saving money, as well as their vacation time.

While COVID-19 is a worldwide tragedy that has impacted almost everyone’s life for the worse,it appears as though there is a silver lining for individuals looking for appearance enhancements. Whether it’s hiding swelling or scarring from a recent treatment behind a face mask or not having to explain changes in appearance, this year’s unique circumstances have made it the prime opportunity for plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures.
