Will COVID-19 change plastic surgery?

This industry has consistently and dramatically grown by 160% over the last 20 years, and I don’t believe that people will suddenly stop wanting to improve how they look and how they feel about themselves. Government-mandated limitations on elective surgery caused some people to delay receiving procedures but many are now being scheduled and performed.
Many patients communicating with us through and post-quarantine are very anxious to receive treatments. Their regular filler and injectable schedules were unexpectedly interrupted, and they want to get back on track. For others, this experience just validated that they want what they were already seriously considering, and they are excited to now be scheduled.

We respect that some people are concerned about what they may consider possible health risks, or their financial stability has now changed. While they may not have surgical procedures, the original concerns about their appearance remain and I expect that they will turn to non-invasive procedures such as fillers and injectables, or non-invasive body contouring treatments like truSculpt-iD or Tru-Flex. Ironically, I think the reality of life’s uncertainty will overall actuality lead to more people choosing to improve their appearance. No one is assured of tomorrow, so they want to enjoy life to the fullest.

As for health and safety, we have always been extremely careful to protect our patients, and medical facilities we utilize do the same. Standards have all increased even further, adding elements like temperature screening for all (including staff members) who enter our facility. The highest attention is being given to assure the health of all patients.
