Double board-certified plastic surgeon, P. Daniel Ward, M.D., shared the inside scoop on post-vaccine medical spa trends:

Placement of fillers to the different parts of the mandible: This procedure has been increasing in popularity over the past 5 to 10 years, but really increased during COVID because of the use of masks. The risk of bruising and swelling is very low with this procedure, but it can still happen and I think that people felt better knowing that they had the security of being able to wear a mask to help hide any effects of the treatment.  

Nonsurgical treatment of the nose through injectable treatments: This procedure has also increased in popularity during the pandemic due to the use of masks. In addition, I think people are more aware of the facial features that they do not like. Perhaps while on video teleconference calls, they may be noticing their wide, droopy nasal tip or their dorsal hump and finally decided to do something about it while they were still wearing a mask.

Rhinoplasty: COVID with its associated use of masks and ability to work from home has allowed people to take care of this nuisance that has affected their lives for years. We have seen people stressed and anxious about the pandemic, but I’ve also seen some of the happiest and most overjoyed patients as they have finally had the time to devote to themselves and get the nasal feature that they felt detracted from their overall attractiveness is taken care of once and for all.
