video conference call on smartphone

Zoom and Gloom

Coronavirus. Lockdown. It has affected all of us in almost the same way. We’re Zoom video conferencing from home, social distancing, limiting personal interaction, and restricting ourselves to only non-essential movement.

If you’ve been reading some of my previous articles, you may remember how I’ve spoken about social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, and others and how they have changed our concept of self-image so much over recent years.

The data also support this claim as the number of cosmetic procedures has increased exponentially.

Well, it seems that now, with COVID-19, many are again turning to their plastic surgeon for help.

Why Now?

Well, the fact is that most of us are using online calling software or video conferencing to keep in touch with work, family, and friends.

Zoom, Skype, and other platforms provide continuous live streaming options for communication.

And you thought you spent a lot of time in front of the screen before this Coronavirus event.

Obviously, there’s a lot of positive things I could mention about being able to run your life from home using Zoom or Skype instead of having to go into an office.

It’s just that darn small little box in the upper right corner of the screen.

You know, the small box with YOUR FACE in it.

Instead of typically paying attention to how your friend, family member, or coworker looks, with video conferencing, you’re most likely staring at yourself! And let’s be honest, not just a little.

It’s a face-off with yourself! And it ain’t pretty.

You see, we aren’t accustomed to looking at ourselves so much, so when you watch yourself on camera, you suddenly see all your imperfections. The flaws you’ve never seen or never wanted to see before.

The reality is that the camera is unforgiving, and you may think that you’re much more tired-, older-looking, or even uglier than you thought.

Here's My Zoom Gloom Quick Test

If you’re staring at yourself in that box while video conferencing and taking inventory on every little line and wrinkle, the size of your nose, ears, hanging, loose skin on the neck, jowls, and eyelids, and you’re not feeling good.

You’ve tested positive for the Zoom Gloom Quick Test.

A Positive test will likely result in a probable near term visit to a plastic surgeon and future intervention!

And this is exactly what’s happening. The demand for Zoom video conferencing with plastic surgeons is surging.

The procedures most requested are on the face and include corrections to the nose and ears, eyelids, undereye bags, Botox and dermal fillers for lines, wrinkles, and laxity in the jowls.

So, the question remains, is this just a temporary phenomenon that will unhinge as soon as the lockdown is over? Or will it reside?

I believe we will have learned much about ourselves as we go through this transition. Video conferencing is probably here to stay, and we will most likely integrate more of it into our daily lives.

So, be kinder to yourself, and if you do decide to seek out professional cosmetic advice online, always make sure you’re seeking advice from a fully qualified and experienced plastic surgeon.

Until next time,
Stay Safe!
