A Post-Quarantine Plastic Surgery Boom Is Happening
Dr. Melissa Doft, a double board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon and founder of Doft Plastic Surgery in New York City says that in addition to pre-booking filler appointments while conducting telemedicine appointments during lockdown, she received a lot of requests for breast augmentation and reduction consultations.
“We’ve done a few breast reduction consults which I think is a great idea because we can do all of the measurements and photographs [from home],” Dr. Doft told InStyle in April. “Then, I can do the video consultation while looking at the photographs to explain how the breast reduction is done, what the post-op situation will be, and then I can submit everything into their insurance because usually that takes a month to be approved. It gives us a head start because everything is delayed because of COVID-19.”
