Pretty Much Everyone is Trying to Emerge From The Pandemic Looking Better Than Pre-COVID
“Everyone wants to come out of COVID looking like a butterfly,” said Melissa Doft, a Park Avenue plastic surgeon, who is booked solid until the first week of June. “Weddings are happening, brides are calling again, people are looking forward to a fun summer.”
There has been a documented increase in cosmetic surgeries in the past 14 months, but Doft said there’s a new race-to-the-finish-line feeling in the air. “Some patients are booking facelifts without even meeting me in person.” Along with the coming warmer months, the uptick in business coincides with the CDC’s loosening of travel regulations and announcements by many companies that they plan to open offices again in September. “We are getting a lot of people who double or triple up on procedures. They want to do their eyes, but they also want to do a tummy tuck,” she said.
