Facial surgery has boomed in popularity since the start of the pandemic. Fuelled by an increase in the number of people working from home, we have seen an increase in requests for procedures like facelifts and brow lifts.
So, why has the working from home trend led to an increase in facial surgery? And which procedures are dominating the sector?
Why has working from home led to more patients seeking facial surgery?
Working from home could be seen as one of the benefits that came out of the pandemic. It has proved so successful that many businesses are continuing with more remote working options for staff.
While there are undoubtedly a lot of benefits of working from home, there has also been a real disadvantage. That is, the rise in video calls.
To stay connected, businesses opted to host regular video call meetings. During video calls, you can see your own appearance on the screen in front of you. This has caused many to scrutinise their facial features such as their nose, chin, and eyes.
Facial surgeries may also have increased due to the increased use of masks, which has brought people’s attention to their eyes and forehead. Furthermore, the recovery time needed from surgery can be easier to combine with a working from home arrangement, especially if there is help around the house from a partner that also works from home.
Which procedures are proving popular?
All types of facial surgeries have boomed in popularity since the pandemic. However, there are three that are proving to be the most requested. They include a facelift, brow lift, and neck lift.
Facelift – This procedure has been one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries for a long time now. However, in recent years they have been overtaken by temporary treatments like Anti-Wrinkle Injections. Since the pandemic, patients have once again turned to a more permanent solution. The techniques used to perform a facelift have also improved dramatically. Patients can now choose from a traditional or a non-invasive facelift procedure.
Brow lift – The brow lift is a popular alternative procedure to a facelift. By raising the brows, it can help smooth out the forehead while giving you a wide-awake appearance. The procedure can be carried out using several techniques and it takes a couple of hours to complete.
Neck lift – The neck lift procedure is used to combat signs of ageing around the jawline and neck. It is often carried out in conjunction with a facelift procedure for best results.
