This has worried many medical professionals who have asked people to "refrain from nonessential treatments" to prevent further spread of the virus, as the number of cosmetic surgery applications in Japan has recently increased.

Demand shows no sign of weakening, largely due to the prevalent use of face masks to prevent infection but which can be also used to hide potential post-surgery swelling.
