After a pause on elective surgeries during the pandemic, we’re now seeing an uptick in the number of requests for body contouring, breast enhancement, and other cosmetic procedures. Yes, despite the fact that many of us are still going to work in our pajamas, cosmetic surgery continues to rise in popularity.
Sound strange? There are actually several major reasons why breast augmentation and other cosmetic surgeries are so popular post-pandemic.
WFH Means Fewer Sick Days for Recovery
It’s no secret that working from home gives employees a little more freedom and flexibility than the confines of a cubicle. One major benefit of scheduling cosmetic surgery while still working from home is that you can generally take fewer personal days off while you recover.
While you’ll still need to take some days completely off, you should be able to sit up in bed and work on your computer sooner than you would be able to head back into a full day at the office.
Some Rainy-Day Funds Blossomed
Without spending money on gas or public transportation, daily lunches, and a $5 coffee here and there, some people found that they were able to stash away extra cash while working from home during the pandemic. For those interested in body contouring or breast augmentation, this extra savings might have tipped the scales in favor of springing for a procedure they’ve been saving for months.
Zoom Isn’t Always Easy on the Eyes
With so many Zoom meetings instead of in-person meetings, women and men alike are staring at themselves all day long, giving them plenty of time to contemplate whether that wrinkle has always been there or if their eyes always look this tired.
