Plastic Surgery Is On the Rise and Pandemic Lockdowns May Be the Culprit

Berardi Aesthetics & Plastic Surgery has seen a rise in liposuction, breast augmentation, and a new technology that’s replacing Cool Sculpting during the pandemic

(SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.) Dr. Joseph C. Berardi, an internationally recognized plastic surgeon in Scottsdale, has seen his business rise during the COVID-19 pandemic. Increased downtime at home, zoom meeting insecurity, and lockdown pounds have people looking to plastic surgery.

During the pandemic, Berardi Aesthetics & Plastic Surgery has seen a dramatic increase in people wanting procedures to help feel good about themselves. Working from home has been a major player in the decision-making process for many people. They are able to recover at home at their own pace, and without needing to take off work for an extended period of time.

“It’s not surprising that our business would increase during the pandemic,” said Dr. Joseph C. Berardi. “People are spending a lot more time on zoom meetings and they are looking themselves and now they are seeing more imperfections or things they’ve never seen before. Add to there are still a lot of people working from home and it has allowed the opportunity to recover in the comfort of their own home rather than having to go to office so soon.”

Add to that, Dr. Berardi owns his own surgery center so patients don’t have to worry about going into a busy hospital where they may be administering care to Covid patients.

The biggest increase has been attributed to EVOLE by InMode, originally only available in New York and Los Angeles. EVOLVE uses radio frequency energy and electrical muscle stimulation to achieve long-lasting body sculpting results with little to no discomfort or downtime.  The New EVOLVE system is the first and only FDA cleared all-in-one system to reduce cellulite, tone muscle and tighten skin.

This new FDA approved technology has gained popularity in the Valley because there is no recovery period needed after these procedures and each procedure generally takes 15 minutes to an hour. Patients typically see results with just four to six treatments.  It is a cutting-edge weight loss procedure without the knife and helps people lose the COVID 20.

“EVOLVE is a weight loss alternative that is safe, virtually pain free, and effective,” said Dr. Joseph C. Berardi. “I am proud to be the doctor to bring this innovative technology to the Valley.”

Evolve Tite uses radio-frequency energy to remodel skin and improve its appearance through skin contraction. The process is pain free, non-surgical and is quick and easy.  It can even be done over lunchtime.  Treatments can be customized and tailored to address your specific needs so the end result is a slimmer appearance with no downtown.  Multiple body areas can even be treated simultaneously.

Evolve Trim is a non-invasive solution designed specifically to reduce the unsightly appearance of cellulite.  It is a quick and easy non-surgical alternative to liposuction by removing fat below the skin and smoothing cellulite using radio-frequency energy combined with a negative tissue vacuum resulting in a sculpted appearance to the treatment area.

Evolve Tone is designed specifically to increase muscle strength and tone.  It is also a non-surgical procedure which will enhance the shape of your body with no downtime, scarring or incisions.  It uses hands free electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) to stimulate involuntary muscle contractions, helping to strengthen and tone muscles on the abdomen, arms, buttocks, and more.

Close to one-third of Dr. Berardi’s patients travel to Scottsdale specifically to see him.
