The Pandemic May Have Changed People’s Views On Liposuction And Tummy Tucks

Everyone’s lives are currently on standstill from the Covid-19 pandemic since 2020, and it is interesting to see a growth in interest for plastic and cosmetic surgery since then. I get it, we binge eat at home and try out too many YouTube or TikTik recipes while also not being able to play sports and go out for activities, so naturally we gain weight, start nitpicking more on how we look, and our skin/ hair condition worsens.

This could definitely contribute to our curiosity for plastic and cosmetic surgery. In the U.S., many women are starting to consider doing procedures to erase damage done by long periods of lockdown and social distancing. For the past few years, plastic and aesthetic surgery have continually been on the rise, not to mention the influence other countries get from the Korean culture just by watching K-dramas and listening to K-pop.

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the world’s largest plastic surgery organisation, which counts nearly 8,000 members, released last year’s data on plastic surgery in the United States, along with a national survey of more than 1,000 women conducted by Equation Research to determine which procedures will be most in demand in 2021. The survey found that 11% of women surveyed during the pandemic indicated that they were more interested in plastic surgery and non-surgical procedures now than they were before Covid-19. The survey also calculated those who have already gotten procedures and also those who plan to spend more on treatments in 2021 than the previous year, the numbers just kept increasing.

It’s definitely not shocking to see people are more interested in getting something done for their appearance now. Would you get liposuction or a tummy tuck?
