The pandemic led to a surge in facial procedures as many faced daily Zoom meetings and had to look at their face on screen every day. However, as things begin opening and restrictions are lifting, plastic surgery trends seem to be changing.
While the lockdown may have led to the “quarantine 15,” many are now focused on losing the excess weight and opting for body contouring to get their pre-quarantine curves back and ready to make a public debut again.
Facial Procedures are Taking a Downturn
As everyone spent day in and day out during lockdown attending meetings on Zoom, the demand for facial work, including everything from facelifts to simple injectables, saw a huge upswing. While facial procedures, such as facelifts and rhinoplasties, dominated in 2020 and early 2021, the requests for these procedures began to decline toward the end of 2021. While this decline has not eliminated the demand for facial procedures, it has created a more equal balance between face and body procedures.
Body Contouring Is Taking Over
The pandemic was a stressful period for everyone, and, during lockdown, people often turned to comfort food. Without access to their regular gym routine, they saw the appearance of the “quarantine 15.” They were able to relax in comfy pants and didn’t think much of it during lockdown. However, as they go back to work, they are seeing that their work clothes don’t fit quite the same. While they may have made it back to the gym and lost the weight, many are turning now to body contouring procedures, such as tummy tucks and liposuction, to firm and tighten.
Men Are Joining the Trend
As women begin to schedule body contouring appointments, they are not the only ones coming in for work. Body contouring procedures, such as gynecomastia surgery (breast tissue reduction), are becoming more and more common among men looking to improve their appearance.
