The rising trend of selfies, Facetime and video chatting have given people a more up-close and personal look at their own faces, driving interest in plastic surgery across the globe. According to WPTV, an NBC affiliate in Florida, selfies and video chatting is driving more people to take action to correct facial features they are uncomfortable with. From rhinoplasty to liposuction, more plastic surgeons are seeing patients come in with selfies to show what features they want changed.
According to the source, most patients report that the selfies aren’t making them want to make changes, but rather drawing attention to features they were already uncomfortable with, convincing them it’s time for a change.
“We’ve seen patients come forward, sharing with us that the way they look in Facetime, Skyping, selfies is not what they want to look like in the real world,” one local plastic surgeon told the news source.
There are many options for those looking to correct facial features, from a facelift to non-invasive cosmetic procedures. Selecting the right procedure requires a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon, however, to help you understand the best way to approach contouring, lifting and reshaping your features. Not everyone is looking to achieve the “perfect selfie,” but the trend is highlighting an important trend as it evolves through modern technology. The sudden closeness to one’s face and continuous exposure to it highlights self-confidence issues and other side-effects of being unhappy with one’s appearance.
