Plastic surgery and nonsurgical procedures have been popular for many years. The novel coronavirus didn’t change that, as much as we thought it might. Instead of seeing a decline in interest, those offering aesthetic services experienced a marked increase in scheduled appointments once offices reopened after their brief hiatus. While facial plastic surgery is expected to thrive again throughout this year, the trends may look a little different than in years past. Here, we discuss why, and which procedures are on our radar.
There may be a couple of reasons for a change in cosmetic trends in 2021. A pivotal change that occurred in 2020 was the shift to online meetings. Working from home brought millions of people face-to-face with themselves, often for many hours a day. This experienced allowed people to observe what they would like to improve about their facial appearance. Another driving force in the increased interest in aesthetic treatments was the fact that it became easier to “take time off” for recovery from various procedures thanks to more flexible work hours.

Blepharoplasty was already a popular procedure, but it’s gotten a boost of interest with the face time adults have been getting for the past year. In addition to being in front of a screen more often, adults are also focusing more on the eyes because that is the area that is most visible these days. Until we are no longer wearing masks when we go out, the eyes are our main representation of mood and personality. Blepharoplasty brings more life back into the eyes so your appearance can accurately depict who you are.
