The early days of the pandemic brought radical change to all our lives, notably in the use of video conferencing as an alternative to social gatherings and workplace collaboration. And as many people discovered during interminable conference calls, the selfie-facing camera of our laptops doesn’t portray our faces in the most flattering light. And while investing in a better camera, different lighting, or a better angle can help a little, what the “Zoom boom” really helped influence is the popularity of cosmetic facial treatments.
If you’re one of the thousands of people who finds themselves detecting facial imperfections while on a video call, Atlanta plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Walker can help with these popular facial procedures, both surgical and non-surgical.
Why is There a Zoom Boom in Cosmetic Surgery?
With little to do socially but work from home and dream of a post-pandemic life, many people began scrutinizing their appearance in ways they haven’t been able to before video calls and mask mandates. A lack of in-person events took hold of their lifestyle. This increased scrutiny, combined with a general trend of saving money as well as being able to tolerate some downtime combined, has driven demand for aesthetic procedures, which are further helped by the ability to conceal any side effects from a procedure behind a mask in public.
Surgical Facial Treatments
For people looking for dramatic and long-lasting results, there’s usually no better option than customized facial plastic surgery. Many patients are highly satisfied with the significant improvement in their appearance with conservative adjustments to features like the nose, jawline, and neck.
When you find yourself staring at your own face in the corner of the screen day after day, you can start to notice that your features aren’t in harmony with one another, or that your nose is larger than you thought it was. Whether you have specific concerns or are simply unsatisfied with your look in general, Dr. Walker can help specify your problem areas and recommend a treatment plan for you during a complimentary consultation.
Popular Non-Surgical Treatments
It’s understandable that some people are not quite ready to undergo surgery to provide a more enhanced appearance, which is why non-surgical aesthetic treatments are rising in popularity since the pandemic. Dr. Walker is able to help people with a variety of concerns through injectable products and minimally invasive procedures like liposuction. Our most popular non-surgical treatments are:
· Plumping the cheeks and providing lift with Juvederm Voluma or Restylane Lyft with or without PDO threads
· Decreasing dynamic wrinkles made with facial expressions with Botox, Dysport, Jeuveau, or Xeomin.
· Achieving a slimmer cheek profile through buccal fat removal
· Lifting and augmenting the lips for a more youthful pout
