While the COVID-19 pandemic might be coming to an end with recent mask mandates lifted, there’s no doubt that it completely changed most people’s lives. One of the biggest changes is the shift from anonymous office work to face-first video calls. However, you feel about remote work or Zoom, one thing is for certain: This change is here to stay.
In a world where your face is more forward than ever at work, what can you do to look your best and feel confident?
Many Americans have asked themselves this question following the pandemic, and as a result, cosmetic facial surgery has become more popular than ever before, especially among younger generations. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, public attitudes toward cosmetic surgery became more positive as the pandemic continued.
Plastic surgeons across the country reported that women between the ages of 31 and 45 are the most likely to receive cosmetic surgery. As the Millennial generation gets older, they are increasingly likely to choose surgery; however, the average patient age is trending down. Younger people have more positive attitudes towards surgery than others, and they don’t feel embarrassed or try to hide the fact that they’ve made a change.
Among the most popular surgeries people received, three of the top five are facial procedures. Rhinoplasty or nose shaping, eyelid surgeries, and facelift are the most common procedures and are only becoming more popular. With so many more people in front of cameras and the influence of social media, we can only expect cosmetic procedures to stay trending.
Why are so many people choosing cosmetic surgery? What benefits does it provide? First and foremost, cosmetic surgery is about giving you the confidence to be yourself. If you work in an environment where your face is front and center in a Zoom call, it can be nerve-wracking just thinking about how many people are looking at you. Cosmetic surgery can give you a confidence boost and allow you to focus on what truly matters at your job.
While some people changed jobs during the pandemic and business models restructured, more people are able to do their work from home. Many people have decided to have cosmetic procedures with less work missed while recovering because of the flexibility of these new business models.
