Why Celebrity Plastic Surgery Increased During Lockdown
Pandemic Plastic Surgery – Celebs Quarantine Cosmetic Touch Ups
Stars and celebrities like to pretend that they were “born that way” – with perfect features that seem to age backwards! But we all know that that simply isn’t true. And if you’ve noticed that many of your favorite A-listers have emerged from the pandemic looking better than before the lockdown, you are not wrong.
Beverly Hills and Hollywood plastic surgeons have candidly revealed that many actors used their time out of the lime light in 2020 and 2021 to undergo ‘secret’ plastic surgery procedures. Stories in Insider and other publications have interviewed prominent Beverly Hills plastic surgeons who admitted that the privacy afforded by the quarantine (coupled with the anonymity of face masks) provided the perfect opportunity for celebs to have cosmetic surgeries with no one knowing.
Plastic Surgeons to the Stars Speak Out
Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Jay Calvert’s was quoted as saying that his celebrity clients used to be “reticent and scared” when he suggested a major face-lift. But that during COVID-19 shutdowns “they have been all-in.”
In the Insider interview, Dr. Calvert said that previously stars would wait until they reached their 50s to undergo facelift surgery. But, he said, since the Covid-19 pandemic, he has performed face lifts on celebs in their 40s and even late 30s. “Definitely before 50,” he added.
Dr. Michael Newman, another prominent Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, also said he saw a big increase in demand for face lifts when filming and public appearances ground to a halt. He explained that he “had several 50-something celebrities rush in [for facelifts] as soon as filming for their shows was put on hold.”
Of course, like all doctors, these plastic surgeons did not discuss their clients by name, due to doctor- patient confidentiality.
Plastic Surgery More Popular During the Pandemic
In addition to the face lift surgeries discussed above, many high-net-worth patients also underwent body modifying plastic surgery during lock-down – including breast enhancement and liposuction.
In that article Beverly Hills plastic surgeons Dr John Layke and Dr. Payman Danielpour admitted to seeing a big rise in breast augmentation by pop stars, especially those in their 20s and 30s.
And Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Ariel Ourian reported that many millennial-age male celebs were seeking “high-definition” liposuction of the abdomen during the pandemic.
Celebrities Who (Allegedly) Had Plastic Surgery During the Pandemic
TV “Dance Moms” star Abby Lee Miller openly discussed having liposuction on her arms during quarantine after a 100-pound weight loss. And Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave posted just this month on Instagram about her recent, transformative neck lift plastic surgery.
Other A-listers aren’t as open about their plastic surgeries – but rumors abound. Experts speculate that while Johnny Depp appears to be 100% “natural” his ex-wife Amber Hurd appears to have undergone subtle rhinoplasty plastic surgery to refine her nose sometime within the last few years.
Plastic surgeons also speculate that influencers in their twenties – such as Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid – may have undergone “fox eye lift” plastic surgery in recent years. This on-trend eyelift surgery method (medically called “canthoplasty”) creates an upswept look around their eyes. The outer corners of the eyes are subtly surgically reshaped to make the eyes appear little bit bigger and give them a bit more slanted or upward tilted (“almond”) look.
When we compare pre-pandemic and after-quarantine Instagram posts of these young, female influencers, it’s easy to see that they have had something more than skillful makeup done!
No Shame in Plastic Surgery
While the stigma surrounding plastic surgery is gradually falling away, it really is no body’s business but the patient’s if they have or have not had any cosmetic work done!
As long as your plastic surgery is performed by a skilled, board-certified plastic surgeon – and it makes you feel more confident and happier – that is all that really matters.
This makes the ongoing climate of social distancing and mask wearing the ideal time to consider plastic surgery that you have been thinking about for a while. With the perfect excuse to avoid public appearances – and a mask to hide the effects of surgery while you heal – why wait?
