When the pandemic started, plastic surgery took a step back around the world as fearful patients cancelled their procedures and practices had to close their doors to non-essential patients. However, within a few months, the industry picked up, better than ever in what some call the “Zoom Boom.” Work from home provided many individuals with the perfect opportunity to finally undergo a plastic surgery procedure and recover from home without having to take any time off. Additionally, without the need to commute, spend money on lunches or wardrobes, many also found more money to spend on procedures. However, the biggest factor that contributed to the spike in plastic surgery was most likely the rise of Zoom. With daily online work meetings, people spent more time than ever staring at their image for hours and analyzing their appearances. As a result of these combined factors, the pandemic made it a perfect time to seek plastic surgery. The big question now is will the increase in plastic surgery be a lasting change as we enter our “new normal” or fade away like an old trend. Only time will tell!
