While COVID is far from over, lockdowns and working from home are quickly becoming a thing of the past. While plastic surgery was put on hold during the height of the pandemic, the post-pandemic plastic surgery boom is in full swing, with liposuction topping the list as the most popular procedure in 2021 to 2022, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. But why is liposuction seeing such a boom?
Lifestyle Changes Due to Lockdown
During the lockdown, people were staying home and attending virtual office meetings in comfy clothes. Gyms were closed and workout routines were put on hold. The stress of the pandemic, along with an abundance of free time, led many to stress eat and bake copious amounts of carb-loaded breads. Increased eating and a lack of exercise led to many adding a few additional pounds around the middle.
While the gyms are now open and almost everyone is back in the office, many are finding stubborn fat that wants to be a permanent pandemic reminder. This has left many turning to liposuction to help restore their pre-pandemic curves. Whether alone or combined with additional procedures, such as a tummy tuck, liposuction helps remove that stubborn fat.
Virtual Meetings and Facial Appearance
While liposuction is commonly used to address excess fat around the middle, it is not limited to the body alone and many are turning to liposuction along their jawline or neck. Hours spent in virtual meetings online and seeing your face up close and at every angle has left some feeling self-conscious of that double chin or excess fat in the neck area. Liposuction, whether alone or added to another procedure, can help deliver a slimmer neck and enhance your natural facial contours.
Whether you are looking to address some stubborn fat along your middle thanks to a broken exercise routine or have become aware of a double chin you never really noticed before the pandemic, liposuction can deliver the body contours and results you are looking for.
