Has anyone had some cosmetic procedures done during this pandemic? Are you happy with the result and have you been able to hide behind Zoom (without video on) while you recover?

Surprised no one has answered this but yes! I underwent breast augmentation. SUPER happy with the results, like so so SO worth it. I didn't get giant bazonkas so to the average person who doesn't stare at your chest all day, I don't think anyone noticed. I also got lip filler, again, very moderate plumping and I don't think anyone really noticed. I was lucky in that at my last job I worked for the courts and we only did phone hearings so no one ever had to see my face or body. If you're wondering how to dodge anyone seeing bandages, etc, I bet you could just turn your camera off and say it stopped working or something.

Where did you get your fillers, if you don’t sharing? Had a not-so-great experience with fillers in NYC a while back and would love a recommendation, if you liked the outcome/dr/etc.

Yes 🙌 Breast aug and nose job!! Best move ever. Even though nobody has seen me yet, I feel miles better about myself and this was the perfect time to recover.

Yeah that’s how my friend convinced me as I was getting cold feet (that I have been talking about it for a while and I will regret it if I don’t do it - there’s not going to be a time like this where I can stay home and recover peacefully

I got them from my dermatologist who I had a solid five year relationship with. I trusted her to put a needle in my face. Her name is Preethi Ramaswamy and her practice is Garden State Dermatology just outside Paramus, NJ. https://gardenstatedermatology.com/

I had my face lasered to help reduce acne scaring a couple of weeks ago. I had it done Thursday afternoon and was back on camera by Monday, so the downtime is pretty minimal. Camera quality is so bad anyways that I doubt anyone could tell you’ve had minor procedures done.

I got Botox and lip fillers and it turned out great!! My lips were pretty bruised though because I bruise easily but I just covered it with lipstick that matched my natural lip colour.

I had filler in my cheeks and it wasn’t noticeable on zoom unless someone was looking for it. I was swollen but just did heavier makeup to compensate. Have contemplated lasers with the thought being just don’t go on video for a few days.. lay low and reschedule meetings.

Good to hear from many of you who have done it! Sounds like you all are female (and I’m a guy and perhaps a bit older). I’m going through something tomorrow and have talked myself out of it so many times this week but I think I will be happy in the end. Has anyone also gotten cold feet right before?

Thanks! Yeah I actually got excited on the day of because I was reminding myself why I wanted to do this in the first place and this is relatively risk free (I got beard transplant). Local anesthesia was more painful than I ever imagined 😱. Not sure how I feel about the result now. This is part 1 of 2 and I think I have to do this one more time in a year to get to the density I want and some areas are still a bit patchy.

Dysport and lip filler. Worth every cent and optimal time to deal with any bruising bc of masks. I’m 50 and am so tired of staring at female colleagues around my age with deep wrinkles in forehead. Hate to say it but they will never get through a screen interview with those. Think of it as an investment in your career

Me too- I’m 48. I see it as an investment in my career to give me 10 more good years.

How do you deal with all of the constant pings? I need some focus time to write emails & create campaigns but my entire team tends to be “on call” with Slack all day and it’s making me crazy.
