The COVID-19 pandemic has made 2020 a year unlike any other, with unprecedented challenges and major changes affecting every aspect of our society. Even amid the coronavirus, other issues do not go away. Whether or not we’re in a pandemic, if you’re bothered by your appearance, it’s still going to be there every time you look in the mirror. Body image dissatisfaction runs rampant in the United States, but many people might be understandably hesitant to go through plastic surgery in the midst of COVID-19. At Preminger Plastic Surgery, we share why a pandemic is actually the best time to get plastic surgery.
The Benefits of Plastic Surgery During a Pandemic
Most people are already working remotely from home right now. Chances are, you’re one of them. Getting out of bed and logging on from your computer at home is a lot easier on you and your body than the entire routine of preparing to head into the office. Depending on the type of surgery you are having, you may be able to continue to work at least part-time while still getting the rest and recovery you need following your surgery. Nervous about video conferences? Don’t be. If you’ve had a body contouring procedure, the area that’s been worked on still won’t be on camera for your next Zoom call. The circumstances of the pandemic thus will allow you to keep working and save your benefit time, which wouldn’t be possible otherwise.
Additionally, since many people are already laying low due to the pandemic and not venturing out as much as before, you won’t have to feel like you’re missing out on fun social gatherings or other events. But you can be assured that you’ll be confident and ready to hit the social scene or attend festive parties once the pandemic is over. Who says you weren’t working out like mad or started a new skincare regimen while being stuck at home for months? Your friends and co-workers will be none the wiser! The pandemic is the perfect time to get plastic surgery, allow your body to heal, and reap the benefits of your results.
Ready to Get Started? What to Expect At Preminger Plastic Surgery
While every surgery has some degree of risk, the chance of complications in plastic surgery is incredibly low. At Preminger Plastic Surgery, Dr. B. Aviva Preminger and her staff treat each patient with the utmost level of care. She also puts her years of experience to work for you as a board-certified, Ivy League-educated plastic surgeon in Manhattan.
Quality plastic surgery is not cheap, and, like many things, you get what you pay for. Dr. Preminger and her staff will present you with an estimate of the entire cost of any procedure before beginning the work. Remember to follow your instincts when it comes to getting plastic surgery. If a surgeon’s prices seem too good to be true, reviews of their work are scarce or negative, or there’s no strong social media presence for that plastic surgeon’s office, all of these factors could be red flags.
Dr. Preminger performs almost all of her procedures on an outpatient basis. Rather than check into the hospital to have your surgery, you can have it done right in the private surgical room in her boutique practice located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. By performing procedures at her own private surgical suite, Dr. Preminger has the utmost level of control over who interacts with her patients. Any patient arriving at our office must respond to a questionnaire to screen for possible COVID-19 exposure and, you can rest assured that we are following all precautions to mitigate the spread of the virus, in accordance with the CDC, local, and state regulations.
