With the COVID pandemic, many businesses closed their doors and began having employees work from home. Zoom meetings became a regular part of everyone’s routine. Unfortunately, this also meant spending hours staring at your own reflection. This up-close look at your face may have revealed some imperfections you were not happy with, sparking a new interest in a facelift or rhinoplasty. But don’t worry, you are not alone. In fact, according to a study in the journal Facial Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Medicine, Zoom facelifts have greatly increased, with 85% of patients receiving facial surgery citing zoom as the main reason for their plastic surgery decision.
What is Zoom Really Showing You?
Your Facebook feed is filled with tons of photos you have taken of yourself and you are proud of, so why did Zoom reveal a different face and facial concerns you weren’t happy with? Photos are taken still and, in many cases, with filters applied, giving you the perfect selfie picture. Video conferencing platforms, like Zoom, on the other hand, displays an unfiltered and motion-filled appearance, revealing every wrinkle and blemish, as well as showing you how your face moves when in motion.
Seeing your face move during your daily Zoom meeting may reveal some facial concerns and have you scheduling an appointment for a facelift or nose job.
How Can You Achieve the Reflection You Desire?
The good news is plastic surgery can help you get the Zoom face you desire. For example, a facelift can help reduce those noticeable wrinkles and lift the sagging skin that is making you look older than you feel. With rhinoplasty, your surgeon can help sculpt your nose to better fit with the natural shape and features of your face. Eyelid lift or brow lift procedures can help reduce drooping eyebrows and eyelids, giving your eyes a brighter and younger appearance.
