Have you heard the term “Zoom Boom?”
If you read up on plastic surgery, you likely have. Zoom Boom refers to the sudden increase in interest in plastic surgery procedures since the pandemic began. Contrary to what most expected, once lockdown began, people became intensely interested in elective cosmetic procedures.
Why the Zoom Boom Occurred
In theory, a global pandemic should have pushed people to stay home and not consider elective surgeries or med spa procedures. In reality, people were seeing themselves on camera all day as they worked remotely and were sick of what they saw. Plus, working from home gave them the time they needed to recover.
What Procedures Are Popular
With Zoom Boom plastic surgery, people heavily sought out facial procedures, especially around the eyes. And that makes sense, given everyone was wearing masks. But these weren’t the only plastic surgery trends. Other procedures that saw a lot of interest include:
- Neck Liposuction and Lifts: Tech neck and turkey neck both show prominently when video conferencing. Many people have decided that now is the time for a little rejuvenation.
- Breast Augmentation: Due to the framing of webcams, it is easy to discreetly increase your breast size without everyone at work knowing what you had done.
- Tummy Tuck: Out of all plastic surgery procedures, tummy tucks have one of the longest recovery periods. Working from home makes resting in bed easier.
- Mommy Makeovers: Once schools went back to in-person classes, many mothers took advantage of working from home without the kids around and opted for complete makeovers.
