COVID-19 has revolutionized the state of the cosmetic surgery industry, as telemedicine and smartphone apps have changed everything about how doctors consult patients, when traditional, in-person consultations have been placed on hold due to social distancing requirements. Dr. Stephen T. Greenberg, M.D., New York City-based cosmetic surgeon, is seeing a surge in downloads of cosmetic surgery simulators apps for iPhone and Android devices, which uses the front-facing camera to simulate fuller lips, narrow noses, higher cheekbones, and many other procedures to make people look and feel their best. Quarantine lifestyles and work-from-home schedules has made inquiries more accessible as patients have reduced commute/work time and can see the doctor from the comfort of their own home. While elective surgeries are put on hold, simulators give patients a real-time look at how a cosmetic procedure may reverse the effects of aging.
