We\u2019ve all heard of \u2014 and probably even experienced \u2014 \u201cZoom dysmorphia\u201d at some point in the past year-plus of pandemic life. But while being forced to stare at our own pandemic-weary faces during endless Zoom meetings has taken an obvious toll on our feelings about those faces, it turns out that\u2019s not the only body part we\u2019ve been fixating on. Zoom dysmorphia has been linked to an increase in cosmetic procedures, but newly released data from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reveals our faces aren\u2019t the only place we\u2019ve been seeking improvement. While Botox and soft tissue fillers were the most in-demand procedures of 2020, the data also reveals a significant spike in butt implants, with the demand increasing by 22 percent from the previous year. It\u2019s no secret than an interest in all things ass has pretty much been on the rise since the Kardashians and their famous backsides first descended on pop culture years ago. But what about the pandemic, specifically, prompted such a sudden spike in demand for butt implants? As it turns out, the pandemic lifestyle many of us adopted \u2014 i.e., sitting around on our asses for months \u2014 may have taken a toll on those asses. Speaking to Bloomberg News, dermatologist Ava Shamban pointed to a \u201cgeneral flattening of the buttocks\u201d thanks to pandemic life as a possible cause of the increase in butt-plumping procedures. Shamban compared the effects of work-from-home culture on our behinds to \u201cmodern day \u2018secretary spread.'\u201d Essentially, we sat around on our butts so much we literally flattened them. Of course, Shamban added, you can\u2019t rule out the influence of social media. After all, what were we doing while we were sitting around on our asses all year? Staring at all the round, lifted, Kardashian-inspired \u00a0derri\u00e8res that have taken over the internet in recent years while we scrolled mindlessly through our social media feeds. \u201cPresumably, seeing the higher, tighter rounder assets on social media or any number of reality distractions, had patients researching and ultimately scheduling procedures to give their bottom line a much-needed boost,\u201d Shamban told Bloomberg. Anyway, in addition to the many, many ways the pandemic may have fucked up your body \u2014 both cosmetically and otherwise \u2014 it probably also made your butt flat. But at least we don\u2019t have to stare at our flat asses on Zoom calls. More Like This Is \u201cZoom Dysmorphia\u201d Giving Rise to a Plastic Surgery Boom?
