The Corona virus pandemic has significantly changed our world, and the Zoom platform may have benefited in large extent of this shift, especially after all companies have begun to move to a digital image by relying on remote working to avoid any potential confusion.
For some reason, the Zoom platform was the primary destination for i team to communicate while working remotely, with some users relying on other platforms such as Skype, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, and others.
As life began to return to its normal course and clinics began to receive more patients, dermatologist and plastic surgeon Shadi Korush noticed a strange event – an increase in the number of people visiting the clinic due to problems related to their appearance.
The main reason behind this is that people feel that their looks and their looks are very bad.
Karush, on the other hand, who is a teaching assistant at Harvard Medical School, knew that the same event had been repeated with his fellow plastic surgeons.
At the same time, the number of requests for facial plastic surgery has increased. When a random sample of patients were asked why, they reported that the calls and video meetings via Zoom and others had led them to believe their faces had become less beautiful.
Negative effect of Zoom meetings
While video calls have made its users more aware of their cosmetic flaws, they have begun to pay attention to things like sagging skin around their neck or jaw, as well as large nose sizes and the like.
Of course, people’s forms have not changed due to the ban on home or remote work, but video calling platforms have only helped them to pay attention to all these shortcomings. This is because video conferencing allows the user to see their own face exactly as the other party sees it, as opposed to natural communication.
So as soon as they had the opportunity, dozens started looking for plastic surgery, a condition described as “zoom dysmorphism,” after body dysmorphic disorder.
Despite the recovery the world is currently witnessing and the spread of vaccinations in most countries of the world, it is clear that this disorder will continue with humans for a longer period. A survey of over 7,000 people conducted by Karush and his team at Harvard he found that the effects of Zoom’s dysmorphia persist.
It is reported that Karush has confirmed that the matter is not new, in how a similar term has been coined, “Snapchat dysmorphia”, which refers to people’s dissatisfaction with their appearance with Snapchat, which has led them to resort to plastic surgery as well.
The Zoom platform is not however in guilt in this situation, but there is no doubt that the poor quality of the cameras of the laptop contributed to this.
