Selfies May be Motivating Women to Undergo Cosmetic Plastic Surgery
A survey carried out by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery has come up with staggering revelations. The organization has found a 10% rise in nose and a significant increase in hair transplants and eyelid surgery in 2013.
A spike has been witnessed in cosmetic surgery and women under 30 are taking injection. Doctors said 'selfies' on social media websites might be motivating women to undergo cosmetic surgery.
They said 69% of young people undergo the procedure due to bullying and 31% of children and teens got it done to avoid bullying. One of the other reasons is unsatisfied with appearance. Posting selfies is considered as the first impression for finding new friend, lover and even employers, said doctors.
One of the three plastic surgeons said more self-aware looks with social media is one of the main reasons behind a rise in the cosmetic surgery requests.
"Social platforms like Instagram, Snapchat and the iPhone app Selfie. im, which are solely image based, force patients to hold a microscope up to their image", said Edward Farrior, MD, President of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
In comparison to men, women are getting more plastic surgeries done. In 2013, 81% of women had carried out plastic surgeries procedure. Men and women were having different choices when it comes to plastic surgery procedures.
Most popular procedures among men were Botox injections, hair transplants, hyaluronic acid injections and rhinoplasties. In the case of women, facelifts and rhinoplasties were the most popular procedures.
A rise in cosmetic surgery procedure was witnessed in married couples as more than 30% of the surgeons revealed the same.
