Why Facial Plastic Surgery Is Soaring During Quarantine

It sounds almost surreal to say it, but we are a year into the pandemic and fast approaching the one-year mark on quarantine. During these months, the quarantine has given people more time to focus their energy on home and self-improvement projects.

The “quarantine remodel mood” has inspired people to redecorate rooms, revamp their home’s curb appeal and rethink their entire wardrobe. And now, many are getting facial plastic surgery during the pandemic to achieve the facial refresh they’ve been wanting.

Why Facial Procedures? And Why Now?

On the surface, the idea of getting plastic surgery during quarantine might seem strange as we’ve been instructed to stay inside as much as possible.

The pandemic isn’t a problem when it comes to plastic surgery. So take advantage of working from home to get some facial procedures done.

In truth, plastic surgery is quite safe right now. With facial cosmetic procedures, many plastic surgeons use accredited outpatient surgical centers that are separate from the hospital and the general population.

These ambulatory surgical centers aren’t intended for surgeries that require overnight stays, so the time spent outside of your home is minimal. They also uphold the same safety standards requirements as a hospital, which means that the prep, surgery and recovery spaces must always be clean and sterilized.

But the overall safety of getting plastic surgery isn’t what is driving people to get cosmetic surgery right now, nor is it driving their focus on facial procedures specifically. For this, we can thank Zoom.

When work was in person, you spent conferences looking at other people. Now, you spend them staring at yourself in a virtual mirror with your face front and center. This set up makes it much easier for you to notice the things you’d like to change.

3 Cosmetic Facial Procedures to Consider

Whether your desire for facial plastic surgery has been long-awaited or your zoom calls have sparked your interest, there are several facial procedures that can address concerns like fine lines and wrinkles and sagging. For plastic surgery during quarantine, there are three procedures you want to consider.

The Microlift

Also known as a mini facelift, the microlift focuses explicitly on the face’s lower features, such as the cheeks, chin, and jawline. In some cases, it can address loose skin on the neck as well. However, it is generally used to correct early signs of aging and gives the patient a more refreshed look. Incisions are made inside the ears, allowing all signs of surgery to be hidden away once recovery is complete.

Fat Transfer

More and more often, fat transfers are being used in cosmetic surgery. It is a great way to combine two procedures — liposuction and strategic plumping of the area of your choice. When it comes to facial fat transfer, those areas are usually the cheeks, lips and around the eyes.

With fat transfer, fat cells are removed from one area of the body and then prepared so the body will accept them once injected into a new location. The fat makes up for volume that is lost as we age, giving the face a more youthful appearance that can last much longer than most fillers.


Finally, if you are looking for an option that is pretty quick and doesn’t require plastic surgery, microneedling could be the right option for you. Often combined with radiofrequency energy, this procedure uses tiny needles to make microscopic channels in the skin. Through these openings, the radiofrequency energy can penetrate deeper, as can creams and other topical treatments. The combination of the energy and the body’s natural healing process stimulates collagen and elastin production, enhancing volume in the targeted areas.
