Selfie got you down? Plastic surgeons to the rescue!
Selfie got you down? Plastic surgeons to the rescue!

Go on Facebook or Instagram  just about anytime of the day and you’ll see selfies galore. What you might not see are all the rejected photos people have taken of themselves because they are not happy with how they look. Well, one person’s picture preference is another one’s profit.

According to the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, there has been a huge jump in facial plastic surgery in the past year and the doctors credit selefies as the reason. There was a 10% increase in nose jobs, a 7% increase in hair transplants, and a 6% increase in eyelid surgery.

I don’t photograph well, and while I may have been part of someone else’s selfie, I rarely take any of myself. But why people are deciding on plastic surgeries based on selfies boggles my mind.

For starters, it’s not a well taken picture to begin with. You’re taking that photo in the moment, with an outstretched arm, in less-than-ideal lighting, and depending on the angle you’re shooting from you’re probably seldom ever getting your “good side.” Yet based on these photos, plastic surgeons are cashing in.

Maybe it’s too obvious, (or not obvious enough) but there is another method of self-examination if you’re thinking of some sort of reconstructive surgery: it’s called a mirror.
