Is the Zoom Boom Spelling Doom for Plastic Surgery Stigma?

Zoom Era Plastic Surgery - Campanile BeautySmoothie - January 2022

It’s no secret that the stigma against plastic surgery is finally on its way out. But what many people don’t know is how much of a role technology and the pandemic have played in this shift. Here’s the info you need on the Zoom Boom, the waning days of plastic surgery stigma and current trends that are ushering out those old ways of thinking. 

What Is the Zoom Boom? 

The Zoom Boom is a term that describes the sudden interest in plastic surgery, especially facial procedures, since the pandemic began. Because so many jobs shifted to a home office model and people spent their days seeing themselves on screen, they began to notice the fine lines and wrinkles that had escaped their notice before. 

As a result, they started seeking out treatments and procedures to roll back the clock a bit. And as a result of working from home, they had the opportunity to. Many people were saving money since they weren’t spending on gas and transportation for long commutes every day. They also had more flexibility for recovery since they were at home all the time anyway.

This led to a shocking influx of plastic surgery consultations, which isn’t slowing down yet.

How the Zoom Boom Is Helping End Plastic Surgery Stigma

The Zoom Boom has helped end plastic surgery stigma because so many people are pursuing the procedures who had never even considered them before. This is bringing awareness to these possibilities that weren’t there before, and it’s leading more people to open up about their experiences with others around them.

There is no need for shame when it comes to plastic surgery. And now, more than ever before, the stigma is fading away.

Basically, more people now know someone who has had a little work done. And given how open the culture is right now when it comes to talking about these things, we are aware that our friends and family members are improving their appearances with surgery, fillers and more. 

Current Trends in Plastic Surgery 

There are a few procedures that are especially popular right now in the Zoom Boom era of plastic surgery. These include: 

  • Facelifts: You can get a complete facelift or a mini facelift, depending on what signs of aging you have and your unique goals.
  • Brow lifts: If your primary concerns are the lines on your forehead and how heavy your eyebrows look, you can choose to just get a brow lift.
  • Nose jobs: Many people are noticing the size and shape of their nose for the first time, and rhinoplasty can change both.
  • Liposuction: Not all surgeries associated with the Zoom Boom are facial; body contouring is also booming since people can get work done without anyone seeing it on camera. 
  • Tummy tucks: With this surgery, you might need time off from work even if you work from home. However, it does make recovery easier. Consider a complete mommy makeover if you want a full transformation. 
  • Breast augmentation: Just like with liposuction, this is a surgery you can get without making it obvious to everyone at work, assuming you are still on a home office model.

Leave Stigma Behind and Embrace Your Best Self

The Zoom Boom is a time for change, and that includes how we think about plastic surgery. No longer should anyone feel ashamed or embarrassed to pursue the treatments they want. We are all in this together, and we should embrace our best selves — even if that means a little nip here and tuck there.
