The present study examined the use of video calls on interest and acceptance of cosmetic procedures. The main purpose of the study was to determine if the increased use of video conferencing calls during the pandemic has impacted Irish people’s thoughts regarding cosmetic procedures. A total of 109 participants aged between 18-73 completed a questionnaire regarding cosmetic procedure interest, social media and video call usage, and attitudes of acceptance of cosmetic surgery scale. The results revealed a significant increase in desire to obtain cosmetic procedures, females may now be desiring more invasive cosmetic procedures for the future compared to males. Age and time spent on social media were found to be predictive of acceptance of cosmetic surgery while gender and time spent on video conferencing calls were not. Implications for this study and strengths and limitations for researching cosmetic procedures are discussed.
