In the past, eyelid surgery was a procedure for older people or those with irregularly drooping eyelids.
But now there is a new trend among young people in which eyelid surgery has become very popular — thanks to the Zoom Boom.
What Is the Zoom Boom?
The Zoom Boom is the proliferation of virtual conferencing. People are spending more time looking at their computer screens, tablets and phones than ever before. This means that they spend a lot of time seeing themselves close-up on screen — which can lead to them noticing their imperfections. Including those around the eyes.
How the Zoom Boom Has Impacted Eyelid Surgery
The Zoom Boom has caused many people to rethink their looks, especially around the eyes.
Cosmetic surgery for the eyelids is becoming more and more common because of how often we see our own faces on video chat or when using virtual conferencing.
Eyelids can sag with age, but this problem is exacerbated by sitting in front of your computer all day long and not blinking enough. When you’re on video chat it feels like you’re looking right into your eyes and over time, this causes eyelids to sag even further due to lack of use (they do not get the same exercise as eyelids that are used to blinking).
This is why eyelid surgery has seen a rise in popularity. People with drooping eyelids are looking for easy ways to fix them, which oftentimes ends up being eyelid surgery.
