Did you know that Zoom had 10 million daily meeting participants in December of 2019… and 300 million in April of 2020?
Over the course of COVID-19 lockdown, Zoom went from a corporate meeting tool to a household name. If you’re like most people, you went from a few video conference calls per month to a few per day.
How much of that time do you spend looking at your own image, and worrying about how you look to other people? It’s OK, you can be honest. Everyone else is checking themselves out too. Don’t worry.
If you’re tired of constantly tinkering with the lighting and the camera angle, here are a few plastic surgery procedures that can help you rejuvenate your face.
A Chin Lift
The number of people that are getting a chin lift has been pretty static for the last few years, but it’s safe to say we will see a big increase in 2020. Countless people have noticed the dreaded double-chin on video calls and will want to do something about it.
A double chin is actually extremely hard to lose through diet and exercise. It is often not just a result of weight gain and can come from a natural loss of skin elasticity as we age.
A chin lift/ neck lift could be a very safe and effective way to treat this by removing the excess fat and skin, while also tightening the muscles in the area.
A Rhinoplasty Procedure
If you have never loved the look of your nose, you may have grown even more self-conscious of it over the last few months.
A rhinoplasty procedure can help you change the size and shape of your nose. It can also help you stop worrying if people are looking at you from your bad side.
A Hair Transplant
It’s amazing how many men discover newly formed bald spots on the back of their heads through Facebook. They see a picture of themselves bent down to play with their children and they ask, “Who’s the bald guy?” Now, countless men are obsessing over the front of their hairlines in video calls.
There are a number of hair transplant options that can help you regain volume and thickness. One of the most popular is the follicle unit extraction (FUE) procedure. This draws natural hair from the back of your head and transplants it to areas you’re trying to build up.
Unlike other hair transplant procedures, there is no undesired pain or scarring.
If the daily video calls during COVID-19 have made you feel insecure about your appearance, you’re certainly not alone. Thousands of people are going to see plastic surgeons to treat longstanding insecurities that have been amplified over the last few months, or to deal with new ones they have only recently become aware of.
Turning off your webcam is easy. But making an impactful change will require the help of a professional.
