The Zoom Boom
An unpreceded shift towards online interaction
The year 2020 brought a global pandemic of epic proportions that completely rearranged our lives in a myriad of ways. In an unprecedented move, companies, as well as social organizations, migrated their activities to online platforms like Zoom to keep functioning. Faced with widespread isolation and disconnectedness, we have all been delighted to resume contact digitally, and it has allowed us to achieve some semblance of normalcy in a chaotic era.
Unfortunately, some not-so-nice aspects come with Zoom use, and those are primarily cosmetic. In Zoom, we are forced to see ourselves in stark, bright lighting where cosmetic flaws are amplified. This has led to a surge in concerns about aging, as most people are not used to seeing their faces constantly in virtual meetings. It can be shocking to discover wrinkles, lines, creases, sagging, and volume loss you didn’t even know were visible.

What are the most popular procedures for improving one’s online appearance?
Blepharoplasty — The eyes are the first point of contact, and on Zoom, our facial expressions are magnified, causing drooping, fat-laden eyelids to appear much more conspicuous, even when we try to mitigate these issues with makeup. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, can correct both the upper and lower eyelids, creating elegant changes that maximize your smile and jumpstart your self-confidence.
Facelift — A well-executed facelift can help to reverse sagging in the lower face and upper neck, smoothing away creases and folds and helping you to feel more like your real self. Sagging jowls can be addressed to give the face a slimmer, more youthful appearance, while stubborn submental fat can be addressed to improve the profile overall.
BOTOX — BOTOX is among the world’s most popular and successful treatments for correcting dynamic wrinkles in both the face and hands. BOTOX works by temporarily paralyzing the tiny muscles responsible for repetitive contractions that lead to wrinkles, thus rendering the skin smooth and taut. With BOTOX, you’ll be able to enjoy seeing a more youthful, relaxed face staring back at you when you open Zoom.
NeoGraft Hair Restoration — You can only wear hats on Zoom for so long before people begin noticing you’re hiding your hair loss. NeoGraft can help restore a healthy head of hair, replenishing your satisfaction with your image. As among the world’s most cutting-edge and innovative hair loss solutions, NeoGraft achieves strategic hair transplantation with imperceptible scarring and minimal downtime.
