Selfies Increase Demand for Hair Restoration
Well, it’s official- the selfie has dominated social media! In the quest for the perfect selfie, some folks seem to have decided that no photo-editing app is good enough to smooth out the wrinkles: nothing less than old-school cosmetic surgery will do.
An annual study showed that one in three surveyed doctors have seen an increase in requests for surgery due to patients’ dissatisfaction with their image on social media. As a result, the report says, American surgeons saw a 10% increase in rhinoplasty from 2012 to 2013, a 7% rise in hair transplants, and 6% in eyelid surgery.
Doctors say patients come to them with selfies they took to show where they think they need improvement. Some surgeons point out that with the selfie’s characteristically distorted angle, it does not provide an accurate representation of one’s face.
