Treat “Zoom Gloom” with These 10 Natural-Looking Beauty Enhancements

Zoom Gloom or Zoom Fatigue is leading to a surge in cosmetic surgery.

Zoom Gloom is the term given to the fatigue we all feel from video chatting constantly during the COVID-19 lockdowns.

You know those meetings that could have been emails? Now they’re Zoom meetings, and everyone is sick of them.

Research is showing that Zoom gloom can leave you feeling drained. It can also leave you with low-self-esteem.

It should be noted that while Zoom is getting a bad rap, these feelings can also be felt on platforms like FaceTime, Skype, and other face-to-face video chats.

Now, some are signing up for cosmetic surgery because of the Zoom Fatigue effect. The motivation to change your appearance might come from staring at yourself inside that tiny box in the corner during these meetings. When there are other people on screen, you can’t help but compare. How much of your nose takes up your face and whether your lips are too small might have never bothered you before. But when you put your face next to Bob or Betty in HR, you can’t help but see yourself as a troll.

There are several good reasons to get cosmetic surgery, which is entirely safe during the coronavirus pandemic. You can recover in the comfort of home now that you have so much downtime, and you have a medical excuse to skip out on Zoom calls (at least the video part). Best of all, there is a range of cosmetic procedures to choose from.

Here are ten cosmetic surgeries that give natural-looking results, and that will help you look your best during your next Zoom video call.

1- Face Lift

Face Lift

There are tricks you use to help yourself look more glamorous on a video call. The right lighting can help to minimize eyebags and wrinkles, for instance. But lighting can’t really help sag or hide folds of skin.

A face lift gives you a younger appearance. By opting for this cosmetic procedure, you can reduce sagging skin and skin folds. You can also sharpen your cheekbones and jawline, and correct jowls and significant facial wrinkles.

During the procedure, your skin is pulled back and tightened. It makes your skin appear firmer and more youthful than your natural years.

There is some downtime associated with facelift surgery. You will take some time to heal from your procedure and your results will continue to look better every day from that point forward. You should be able to resume Zoom calls after four weeks. At twelve weeks, you should be completely healed, allowing you and everyone else to see all the years erased from your appearance.

2- Liposuction & HD VASER Lipo

You’ve likely heard all about liposuction. It retains its title for being one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries since it was first made available in 1974. Using a thin tube called a cannula, your cosmetic procedure can remove large pockets of stubborn fat from various areas of your body. Did you know that you can have liposuction performed on your cheeks and neck? Having liposuction done on these two areas can make your face appear thinner and more attractive inside the tiny Zoom box.

VASER high-definition liposuction goes a bit deeper than regular lipo. It can give you that etched and sculpted effect that usually only comes with years of struggle in the gym. Tell your cosmetic surgeon your aesthetic goals and your doctor will go to work, carving your abdomen, arms, thighs, flanks, cheeks, and other parts with the agile hands of an artist, down to the last detail.

3- Kybella Double Chin Treatment

Kybella Double Chin Treatment in Los Angeles CA

Does your double chin jiggle every time you intonate, laugh, or otherwise emote during meetings? Kybella injectable treatment is FDA approved to fill-out the area below your chin for a more streamlined look.

Kybella is a non-surgical technique that uses an injectable synthetic acid to target fat cells. The synthetic acid used in Kybella is based on deoxycholic acid, which occurs naturally in the body. The acid goes to work after being injected into your skin by targeting the fat cells at the treatment site. This makes the skin appear thinner and firmer over time.

Each Kybella treatment can be completed in around thirty minutes in your cosmetic surgeon’s office. The results, which are permanent, will be fully realized within four to six weeks after your final treatment. The injections are given over several sessions, which helps you achieve a sculpted and toned face. Your skin will also take on a whole new glow on account of Kybella’s skin rejuvenating effects.

4- Skin-Tightening Renuvion

Want to look younger when engaging in meetings? Renuvion just entered the chat. This cosmetic treatment tightens and rejuvenates your skin without surgery. Using J-Plasma technology, which utilizes a combination of radio waves and helium plasma energy, Renuvion heats the tissue at the treatment site. No other tissues are affected while the stream is active.

The stream is precision-targeted and perfect for hard-to-reach areas like the regions around the eyes. Renuvion is also ideal for jowls and saggy cheeks. Once heated, the skin begins to tighten, which smooths away fine lines and wrinkles just like a facelift. You could say that Renuvion gives you a facelift without the scars or downtime, which is why it is so loved by Zoom aficionados.

5- Facial Fat Transfer

Video chat boxes tend to reveal all the contours of our faces. When your face has lost volume in places due to age, Zoom meetings can accentuate that loss, making you look older than you are. With fat transfer, you can have your own fatty tissue injected into your face to smooth out those contours for a chiseled or feminine effect.

Facial fat transfer is also referred to as fat grafting and the procedure is known as an autologous procedure, which means you are donating the tissue to yourself. The fat cells you donate come from other areas of your body such as your abdomen, thighs, back, and arms. Your surgeon extracts the fat using traditional liposuction.

The fatty tissue is first purified before it is injected into your face to fill-in valleys and smooth-out contours. All those areas where bone tissue has diminished or where fatty tissue is lost will now appear youthful and firm, as if nature turned back the clock.

6- Lip Augmentation

Lip Augmentation- Los Angeles CA

For lips that are barely there, lip augmentation can give you the pout you crave. All the celebrities are doing it. Even Instagram influencers are jumping on the trend. We’re referring to plump lips, the kind only the likes of Mick Jagger used to have. These days, you don’t have to be born with it. Your cosmetic surgeon can give you thicker and fuller lips through the use of injectable dermal fillers.

The most common fillers include Restylane, Silk, Belotero, Juvederm Volbella, and Juvederm Ultra XC. Your cosmetic surgeon will determine how much filler to use based on the size of your natural lips and your aesthetic goals. The results are immediately apparent and there is no downtime.

The treatment takes around thirty minutes and usually only requires a single vial per session, which makes it more affordable than other cosmetic treatments. For best results, schedule follow-up injections every four to six months to keep your lips in pucker-perfect shape.

7- Laser Hair Removal

When you have facial hair and hate shaving, turn to laser hair removal, now available at your local cosmetic surgeon’s office. Your doctor uses a Diolaze XL laser, which targets and destroys hair growth rapidly for an instantly smooth effect.

The treatment uses a pulsing laser to eradicate the hair. Your hair growth should significantly reduce after a few sessions. The number of sessions you require will depend on your hair type, hair color, skin tone, and the area of the body being treated.

The procedure is fast, painless, and can be used on any hair texture.

8- BOTOX® Cosmetic (Injectable Neurotoxin)

BOTOX® Cosmetic (Injectable Neurotoxin)- Los Angeles CA

You never think about age until it’s staring you in the face. When your Zoom box looks like a much older person staring back at you, BOTOX® and other injectable neurotoxins can help. This cosmetic-treatment-in-a-syringe can tighten the skin and smooth away fine lines and wrinkles.

The neurotoxin, once injected, blocks certain chemicals in the nerves that cause the muscles in the face to contract. This relaxes the muscle, causing wrinkles around the forehead and around the eyes to fade away.

Results can last between three and four months, but they will wear off. Having the treatment repeated every three months or so can lengthen the effect of the relaxed muscles, making you look more youthful every time you have to be on screen.

9- Breast Augmentation/Gynecomastia Treatment

Your face isn’t the only thing that shows on camera during Zoom meetings. Your chest may be visible as well. Breast augmentation for women and gynecomastia treatment for men can give you a more attractive chest, making you look out of this world inside that tiny box.

Natural breast augmentations and traditional breast augmentations can both make your breasts larger. If you don’t want size, both techniques can also improve your breast shape, correcting asymmetrical breasts, for example. Natural augmentations use the fat transfer technique. Instead of injecting the fat into your lips, the fat is extracted from another area and injected into each breast for more volume and improved shape.

Regular breast augmentations use silicone implants to give your breasts the intended size and contour. Don’t think you have to go melon-sized, either. Today’s breast implants are smaller in size than in years past, giving your silhouette more naturally-appearing curves.

For men who experience male breast growth, gynecomastia surgery or male breast reduction can give you a flatter, more masculine chest. Your cosmetic surgeon will use liposuction to remove the fat from your chest. When glandular tissue is present, the excess fat and tissue can be cut away, giving you more manly “pecs”.

Breast augmentations and gynecomastia surgery can boost your self-esteem, making Zoom video meetings much more tolerable.

10- Upper Eyelid Surgery

Upper Eyelid Surgery for Treat Zoom Gloom- Los Angeles CA

Drooping upper eyelid skin can make you appear overworked and exhausted. Not the best look when trying to impress your boss. If undereye bags are making you feel self-conscious, and especially if they are getting in the way of your vision, upper eyelid surgery can help.

During the procedure, your surgeon will correct the bags under your eyes. This procedure will fill out any hollowness and eliminate fine wrinkles along the lower eyelids. Your surgeon can even tighten loose skin on the upper and lower eyelids, giving you a youthful and refreshed appearance.

Look Your Best by Choosing the Best Cosmetic Surgeon in Los Angeles

Let’s face it, we all dread Zoom calls, particularly when we feel we don’t look our best. By opting for cosmetic surgery, you can feel pride during Zoom calls. You can show off your natural-looking results, and you can wow your coworkers, colleagues, clients, friends, and family with your newly enhanced aesthetic.

10 Cosmetic Surgery Trends We Predict for 2021

2020 is finally behind us. We thought it would never end.

Now, with the pandemic still raging, a New Year has passed. The good news is that, on account of COVID-19, cosmetic surgeons are practicing more safety measures than ever.

That’s good for your New Year’s resolutions of changing that one thing about yourself you dislike.

Your saggy chin, flabby belly, or jiggly thighs could all be a thing of the past. You know which part(s) we’re talking about.

You’ve always wanted to change for the better aesthetically and now’s your chance.

This is the best time to have an aesthetic procedure.

Americans spent $16.5 billion on cosmetic procedures in 2018, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, and numbers only continue to rise.

With modern innovations and technological improvements in the medical industry, procedures are now safer than ever. And affordable, due to the availability of aesthetic surgery financing.

Here are cosmetic procedures we predict will be the most popular in 2021.

What is Cosmetic Surgery?

Cosmetic surgery also referred to as aesthetic surgery, is an elective operation that aims to improve your appearance. There are cosmetic procedures for nearly every part of your body, including your forehead, eyelids, chin, neck, arms, chest, abdomen, butt, legs, calves, and ankles. There are also non-surgical options that can smooth and erase fine lines and wrinkles and enhance areas such as your lips.

The best cosmetic surgeons offer an entire menu of surgical and non-surgical treatments so that you can address your insecurities.

1- Traditional Liposuction

Traditional liposuction is one of popular cosmetic procedures

Traditional liposuction is a popular cosmetic surgery for both men and women. Patients appreciate that lipo can be used on a variety of areas on the body.

The most common areas where patients seek to have lipo performed include the abdomen, hips, sides, lower back, upper thighs, and upper arms.

While liposuction should never be used as a weight loss tool, the procedure can remove large pockets of stubborn fat from your body. You would be considered an ideal candidate for lipo if you have tried to lose weight to no avail with diet and exercise. Lipo can remove the fat, making the area slimmer.

During liposuction, general anesthesia is used before a tumescent liquid is injected into the treatment area. The substances in this liquid break up the fat, making it easier to extract. Small incisions are made, allowing your doctor to insert a cannula, or thin metal tube, to extract the fat from your body.

Liposuction can slim down your appearance and give you a leaner silhouette.

There were more than 250,000 liposuction procedures performed in 2018 and we predict the procedure will become even more popular in 2021.

2- VASER Liposuction

 

VASER Hi-Definition liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that also aims to remove stubborn fat from your body. The main difference between traditional lipo and VASER lipo is the body sculpting results. VASER uses ultrasound energy to break up the bonds that keep fat connected to the surrounding tissues. Once the fat is emulsified, it is removed using a liposuction cannula. VASER is best for removing the deep, superficial fat cells that hide your body’s musculature.

Patients of VASER can see faster results from exercise because they don’t have that pesky layer of fat covering all their hard work. The procedure can be used nearly all over, resulting in a toned and “ripped” appearance.

As more people learn about this cutting-edge HD lipo technique, we expect more patients to ask for a sculpted physique using VASER.

3- Injectables and Fillers

Injectables and Fillers

As we get older, our faces begin to develop imperfections like wrinkles, sunspots, and fine lines. You may experience bags under your eyes, which makes you appear eternally exhausted. Aesthetic injectables and fillers can make Father Time stop in his tracks. In some cases, fillers can even enhance what nature gave you.

Aesthetic injectables go by many brand names such as Botox, Xeomin and Dysport, to name a few. These injectable neurotoxins weaken and paralyze specific muscles at the treatment site. By diminishing the muscle action in that area, your cosmetic surgeon can improve small wrinkles and folds, making you look younger and more refreshed.

Fillers are used to fill-in deficiencies or voids in the skin. Age can also produce a sunken effect as the muscles in our face weaken and atrophy. Fillers can support these areas, making your skin look firmer and younger.

Thick fillers are used for deeper folds and creases and to provide lift to the affected area. Thinner filler products are used for finer lines and creases but don’t offer much support.

Both procedures will gain in popularity as people continually want to turn back time and add improvement to their appearances on Zoom and in the real world.

4- Cosmetic Procedures Combinations

 

With cosmetic surgeons able to perform so many aesthetically enhancing techniques, it makes sense that patients would want to bulk treatments together when they can. We expect more patients will choose this route, which reduces the number of times they are on the surgeon’s table. Instead of having breast implants this week and a butt augmentation a year from now, you can have both treatments performed in unison as part of a mommy makeover procedure, for example.

Combining procedures is a convenient and affordable approach to improving your body. Not all procedures can be performed in conjunction with one another. Ask your cosmetic surgeon for details to begin envisioning the possibilities.

5- Tummy Tuck

A flatter tummy can be yours by opting for a tummy tuck, which is also known as abdominoplasty. This popular cosmetic treatment can help you achieve your fitness goals once and for all. Like lipo, you should make every attempt to achieve your ideal shape with diet and exercise. When those fail to work, a tummy tuck can give you the enviously flat belly you’ve always wanted.

During a tummy tuck, your cosmetic surgeon will remove the excess skin and fat that exists on your abdomen. Your surgeon can also repair separated or weakened muscle tissue, which further results in a slimmer and more defined body shape.

Tummy tucks have always been popular and there’s no reason to believe that the trend will stop in 2021 and beyond.

6- Breast Augmentations

Breast augmentation - Cosmetic Procedures

Breast augmentation, which is also referred to as augmentation mammoplasty, is surgery that aims to increase your breast size. It involves the placement of breast implants under breast tissue or the muscles in your chest.

In the past, women opting for breast implants would often choose the biggest and most voluminous implants they could get. The bigger the better. Those days are long gone.

We predict that not only will breast augmentations (and breast lifts and reductions) still be popular in 2021, but the focus will be on smaller, more natural implants.

7- Butt Augmentations

Just like breast implants, more patients will be ordering butt augmentations like the Brazilian Butt Lift. With the BBL, fat is extracted from another area of your body, such as your flanks, before it is injected into your buttocks to give it more shape and volume.

Like breast implants, we predict patients won’t be going as large as they can go, but will want buttocks that are perkier, and more natural in appearance.

8- Scarless Body Lifts (Renuvion Skin Tightening)

Scarless Body Lifts (Renuvion Skin Tightening)

Have you heard of the scarless arm lift? What about the scarless tummy tuck or the scarless leg lift?

These procedures are now more popular than ever before. Here’s how they work.

Using a technology known as Renuvion (J-Plasma), your cosmetic surgeon can tighten and repair skin at the treatment area with immediate and long-lasting results.

J-Plasma can treat droopy or saggy skin and can be used on most body parts requiring incisions, including sensitive areas like the neck and face.

“But wait,” you might say to yourself. “If there are incisions, how are there no scars afterward?”

The term “scarless” implies that the scars are nearly invisible once healed. For one, your cosmetic surgeon strategically places the scars within the natural folds of your body. These incisions, once healed, will hardly be noticeable.

Reunion can be used from nearly head to toe and we expect more people to opt for this procedure to tighten and rejuvenate their skin.

9- Gynecomastia Surgery

Gynecomastia Surgery

Male breast growth is a problem that can affect males of nearly any age. Young boys can begin forming male breast tissue in puberty and some older men experience “man boobs” when their testosterone starts to decline and they lose muscle mass. Gynecomastia surgery can restore a man’s chest to a more masculine appearance. The procedure has also been shown to have a drastic effect on the man’s self-esteem.

For men who have trouble removing their shirts at the beach or in the locker room, gynecomastia surgery could be the life enhancer they’ve been waiting for. Now that more men are discovering that treatment is possible, we expect to see the number of gynecomastia patients to grow even higher in the future.

10- Laparoscopic Gastric Sleeve

Laparoscopic Gastric Sleeve

You may not think of bariatric (weight loss) surgery as a cosmetic procedure. But for some, a surgery like the gastric sleeve can be of a cosmetic nature.

People suffering from obesity can face constant rejection and it doesn’t help that the media doesn’t paint obese people in a particularly good light.

We should mention that being obese raises your health risks and can result in early death.

Whether you want to slim down for health reasons or to look your best, weight loss surgeries like the sleeve gastrectomy (gastric sleeve) can help you achieve your health and body shape goals.

The laparoscopic gastric sleeve is minimally invasive and performed under general anesthesia. Your surgeon will use laparoscopic tools to remove 80% of your stomach, which leaves behind a small pouch or “sleeve”. Your newly configured stomach forces you to eat smaller portions, thereby restricting the nutrients your body can consume. Gastric sleeve surgery also affects the hormone ghrelin, which regulates hunger and fullness. You won’t have as many cravings for bad foods and you will feel fuller while eating, helping you lose weight quickly.

Gastric sleeve patients end up losing 50%, 60% or more of their excess weight in the first two years. The bulk of the weight loss happens within the first year, with the weight loss tapering off after year two.
