According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, approximately 18.1 million cosmetic procedures and 5.9 million reconstructive procedures were performed in the U.S. in 2019.

With more people working from home and spending time in front of the camera on Zoom, we’ve had a lot more time to focus on our self-perceived imperfections. Every time we hop on to those video conference calls, we’ve had a number of opportunities to examine our faces or other small things that we don’t like about our physical appearance. It’s never a bad idea to get a little extra help with those areas to improve our self-esteem.
In addition, spending more time at home provides the perfect opportunity for downtime and recovery after a procedure. With the way more things are happening online now, it’s a great way to get procedures done while also staying productive and on top of things.
