Q: What trends or changes are you seeing as a result of people working from home?

A: With so many employees working from home and attending meetings online, people have become more sensitive to their facial appearance. We’re seeing “the Zoom effect,” the result of people staring at themselves on the screen and feeling that they look tired or that their noses look big. Outside, mask-wearing has raised people’s concerns about the appearance of their eyes, because that’s all anyone sees.

In this “Covid culture,” we’re seeing a surge in quick and easy fixes – injectable treatments like fillers and Botox – and a tremendous uptick in surgical procedures including rhinoplasty, facelifts and upper eyelid surgery. While in the past, 95% of our patients were women, today, more men are reaching out than ever before.

Q: What makes your practice unique?

A: We’re unique because we specialize in the face, and with the wide range of procedures that we offer, we get patients of all ages who are ethnically diverse. While the majority of our patients live in the DMV, we see patients from all over the country and the world, most of whom come for surgical procedures. Our staff is diverse as well, which allows them to understand different cultures and desires.

Our use of advanced technology also sets us apart. With computer imaging, we can show patients who are considering a rhinoplasty or facelift procedure what the results will be before they even commit to surgery.
