Americans report a positive attitude about plastic surgery even during the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a new survey from the American Society of Plastic Surgery.

In the survey of more than 1,000 consumers who were polled during the pandemic, 49 percent of those who haven't had plastic surgery indicated they are open to cosmetic or reconstructive treatment in the future. Of those, 28 percent would consider a first-time cosmetic procedure. Those who had previous procedures reported improved overall confidence, while 29 percent of all respondents indicated specific treatments – such as rhinoplasty, facelifts, and breast augmentation – are top of mind for them.
