Selfie Obsession and Plastic Surgery
Everyone is doing it! Can you guess what “IT” is? If you said SELFIES, you are right!! They are quickly (if not already) becoming a huge trend in social media but did you know that psychiatrists are linking them to a person’s obsession about their looks?? Let’s admit it, when we take a selfie, we take several over & over, right? We critique our skin, face, hair & so forth, until we find the perfect one we want to post…where we look just right! Check out these stats from The American Academy of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery. They conducted a member survey to uncover the latest trends in cosmetic procedures and found that there was a 10% increase in Rhinoplasty as well as a 6% increase in eyelid surgery in 2013. What do you think…sounds like a result of selfies?!? Social platforms are clearly forcing patients to hold a microscope up to their own image & look at themselves with a more self-critical eye.
