There is no denying that COVID-19 has changed everything. Your life likely doesn’t look the same today as it did a year ago. With social distancing guidelines in place, many people have switched to working or attending school remotely. This means more time at home and more time engaged in virtual meetings. People are now spending hours in front of a camera, finding themselves self-conscious about the way they look in the digital eye.

If you are unhappy with the aging or shape of your facial features and wish to undergo plastic surgery, Dr. Brothers offers various facial procedures that can help you regain your confidence. 

1. Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery) 

2020 has taken a toll on all of us, and—let’s face it—we are all tired. However, that does not mean you need to look like it. Sagging eyelids can make you appear tired, especially on camera. Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) works to eliminate tired, restless eyes by removing excess eyelid skin and repositioning the excess fat and muscle. 

Based on your needs for the procedure, you have two options for blepharoplasty: 

Upper Eyelid Surgery

Upper blepharoplasty targets the upper eyelid hooding that contributes to an older, angrier appearance.   

Lower Eyelid Surgery 

Lower blepharoplasty addresses the puffy bags underneath the eyes that cause the individual to appear tired and unalert. 

2. Facelift Surgery 

Visible signs of aging, especially on the face, are among the most common cosmetic concerns for individuals. Natural aging can cause sagging skin and wrinkles that result in a visibly older appearance. Facelift and neck lift surgery help eliminate these aging signs by trimming loose skin and tightening the underlying muscle and tissues. With this surgery, you can achieve smoother, younger-looking skin that you can feel confident about while sitting in front of a camera. 

3. Rhinoplasty 

When you look in the mirror, one of the first things many individuals notice about themselves is the appearance of their noses. This can be frustrating for those who are unhappy with its size and shape. You may feel like your nose stands out—especially on camera. 

It can be difficult to focus on anything else when you are concerned about what your nose looks like. Rhinoplasty surgery works to correct the nose’s size and shape to help create a more symmetrical and confidence-enhancing appearance. 

Is Now a Good Time to Undergo Plastic Surgery? 

We all know (and hope) that the pandemic is not going to last forever. However, you should be able to look and feel your best now. These procedures are long lasting and will be beneficial even after returning to work and school. 

Since you are already spending a significant amount of time at home, you have more opportunity to rest and recover. Dr. Brothers and his team are working hard to maintain a safe and sterilized environment where you can feel comfortable.
