Surgeons have witnessed a significant surge in demand for a range of treatments, including liposuction, Botox, dermal fillers and body contouring.
One of the leading aesthetic surgeons in the UK, Dr. Olivier Amar, is one surgeon who has witnessed a significant surge in demand for a range of treatments, including liposuction, Botox, dermal fillers and body contouring.
According to Dr. Amar, his cosmetic treatment company Uvence has built up extensive waiting lists, with Dr. Amar and his fellow surgeons carrying out numerous video consultations with future clients on a daily basis, in an effort to cope with an increase in demand while following government guidelines.
Now, Dr. Amar explores some of the reasons behind the sharp increase in demand for cosmetic treatments in lockdown, and discusses the mental health implications that lockdown has had on the nation’s self-image:
“As an area that relies so heavily on personal interactions and close proximity, the pandemic had a devastating effect on the beauty industry and resulted in people being unable to access any kind of cosmetic treatment for several months.
For many people, cosmetic procedures have a considerable role to play in building confidence and a good self-image, with some procedures (particularly non-invasive dermal fillers and Botox) becoming a major cornerstone of one’s beauty regime.”
