Popularity in plastic surgery thanks to the pandemic – Toronto Sun


I am the exterior designer, says Toronto plastic surgeon Dr. Stephen Mulholland. Its either home improvements or face and body improvements, and they dont have to miss work to recover.

Mulholland is seeing a tremendous surge in pandemic aesthetic procedures. Invasive plastic surgery is up 30%, year over year, from the pre-COVID year. Non-invasive treatments such as Botox, filler and energy-based device treatments are up 50%, says Mulholland, of SpaMedica Surgery Center in Yorkville, Ont.

Working virtually and looking down at the computer screen is when (people) notice the heavy jowls and neck, upper and lower eyelid bags and nose contour and profiles, he says. The Zoom boom results in Zoom appearance dysphoria and the drive to act on plastic surgery procedures.

The most popular COVID-19 facial procedures are rhinoplasty, blepharoplasty (eye lift), and face and neck lifting, while the most popular COVID-19 body procedures are breast augmentation, liposuction, tummy tuck, mommy makeovers and fat grafting to the buttocks area, says Mulholland, ofSpaMedica.

Areas most visible above the COVID-19 mask are getting a lot of attention, too, most notably Botox and filler to the eyebrow, under-eye area and cheek regions, he adds.

Mulholland sees the demand staying strong over the winter thats unless COVID numbers overwhelm the health care system, and elective surgeries get shut down.

A study published in June by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that 64% of U.S. plastic surgeons had seen an increase in their tele-consultations over COVID.
