You may not think it is unusual that many people are prioritising their health during this time of Covid-19. But along with an increase of interest and care about our general health, there is an increasing number of both men and women who are making enquiries and booking for cosmetic treatments and plastic surgery.
In this era of Covid-19, there are many of us are working from home, or at least spending a lot more time at home. This has increased the amount of time to self-reflect, including accessing our health and our appearance – and thinking about how we can improve all aspects of our well being.
A Time to Reassess
Whether it’s noticing our weight, or aspects of our appearance, including signs of ageing, the reality is, we now spend a lot more time looking at ourselves. Whether it is our reflection on zoom, or just the reflection of ourselves in the mirror, there has never been a time in history like right now, when we are all seeing ourselves reflected as much as we are now.
There are also other reasons why more of us are considering making positive changes to our health and appearance. Covid-19 is a huge reminder of the importance of our health. But it’s not just our health, we not only want to feel better, we want to look better. And looking better can mean many things for each of us. For instance, you may realise that you do need to lose weight – and not just for the benefit of your appearance, but for the overall benefit of your health.
The Silver Lining to Covid-19 Times
This Covid-19 era of staying home more also has some definite benefits to booking surgery. The downtime from surgery is that much easier if you don’t have to physically be in the office or to be as socially engaged as you normally would be. There’s also the benefit of wearing masks when you’re out and about – who’s to know if your being safe and considerate, or whether that face mask you’re wearing is hiding a face recovering from plastic surgery?
Looking and Feeling Better When ‘Normal’ Resumes
While deciding to undergo a treatment, especially a surgical procedure is a serious consideration, many of us are looking for a silver lining during this strange time. We know that one day, hopefully soon, society will go back to ‘normal’, so why not plan to return to normality, looking a feeling a little better about yourself?
If you are considering surgery, or non-surgical treatments now, know that you are not alone. While this time of restricted social contact has its obvious downside, there are also some benefits and one of those is using this time to improve our bodies physically, mentally and emotionally.
