‘Zoom face envy’, lockdown weight gain and the ability to hide away while you’re recovering from your op have all been credited with an increase in cosmetic surgery demand over the last few months.
Certainly, here at Karidis Clinic, we’ve been busy during lockdown answering your queries and discussing your concerns during the online consultations we’ve been offering and we’ve seen a surge in enquiries for both cosmetic surgery and non-surgical treatments.
Since the clinic reopened, we’ve seen many patients returning for their top-ups of temporary aesthetic treatments such as Wrinkle Smoothing and Dermal Fillers, but it’s also encouraging to see a continued interest in more invasive plastic surgery procedures, which indicates patient confidence in the safety measures we’ve adopted.
Here are our top 6 most in-demand procedures post-COVID
Breast augmentation and tummy tuck are always popular plastic surgery procedures, but it’s interesting to see an increase in men enquiring about male chest reduction. Mr Alex Karidis’ experience in this field and innovative, award-winning stitching technique has established him as one of the UK’s leading gynaecomastia surgeons.
An extended period of stress often makes people more determined to address areas of concern as a way of prioritising self-care. Negative self-image may have been further compounded by piling on the pounds during lockdown, a common complaint as 48% of Brits questioned in a recent King’s College London and Ipsos MORI survey felt they had put on weight due to heightened stress and anxiety.
As always, Mr Karidis emphasises the importance of making an informed and considered decision about having cosmetic surgery. During your consultation, he will discuss all the implications and possible risks and whether cosmetic surgery is the right choice for you at this time.
