The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on various aspects of daily life, and the world of facial cosmetic surgery is no exception. With the rise of remote work and video conferencing, people are spending more time looking at themselves on screens than ever before. This has led to a phenomenon known as “Zoom dysmorphia,” where individuals become increasingly critical of their appearance and seek out cosmetic procedures to improve their looks. As a result, there has been a surge in demand for minimally invasive facial cosmetic procedures such as minimal invasive face lifts and thread lifts, which offer a more youthful and refreshed appearance with less downtime and recovery than traditional face lifts.
Minimal Invasive Face Lifts: A Quick and Effective Solution
Minimal invasive face lifts are non-surgical procedures that utilize injectable fillers and muscle relaxers to tighten and lift the skin. These treatments target specific areas of the face, such as the cheeks, jowls, and neck, and can be performed in a matter of minutes. Patients typically experience little to no downtime and can see immediate results, which can last for several months. This has made them an attractive option for individuals experiencing Zoom dysmorphia, as they can quickly achieve a more youthful appearance without the need for invasive surgery.
Thread Lifts: A Less Invasive Alternative to Traditional Face Lifts
Thread lifts are another popular option for those seeking a less invasive alternative to traditional face lifts. This procedure involves the use of thin, dissolvable threads that are inserted into the skin to lift and tighten sagging skin. Performed under local anesthesia, the threads are inserted through small incisions and then pulled tight to lift the skin. Patients typically experience minimal downtime and can see results that last for up to a year.
The Importance of Qualified and Experienced Surgeons
It is crucial for patients seeking minimal invasive face lifts or thread lifts to choose a qualified and experienced oral and maxillofacial surgeon. These procedures, while less invasive than traditional face lifts, still carry potential risks and complications such as infection, bleeding, and scarring.
