The Rise of Rhinoplasty with Social Media

Friday, January 27th, 2017

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. In this day and age, millenials are uploading billions of photographs a day, begging for positive Facebook and Instagram comments. Growing tired of slight imperfections and filters stealing potential likes, internet users are turning to Rhinoplasty Experts to gain internet fame. Billions of photo shares a day are making people come face to face with their physical appearance. Doctors have experienced an up-rise of clients demanding nasal surgery because of a picture they saw online. Younger patients are even bringing selfies into the doctor’s office and requesting a more uniform and physically appealing nose.

The Statistics of Rhinoplasty with Social Media

As of 2015, the rise of our internet obsessed culture has prompted an up-rise of individuals under thirty seeking dermal injections, rhinoplasty and other aesthetic procedures. The spike in plastic surgery may be a result of our Kardashian addicted society, or just an outcry to be seen and loved. AAFPRS’ Board-Certified Facial Plastic Surgeons reported 31% of their patients come in with requests for reconstructive treatments because of social media needs.

Benefits of Rhinoplasty

  • Provides an even and natural balance to an asymmetrical nose
  • Flattens out humps, straightens out hooks and fills in dips and dents
  • Corrects large or uneven nostrils, sometimes regulating breathing problems
  • Straightens a twisted nose

Risks Related to Unrealistic Rhinoplasty Expectations

While we spend a great deal of the day scrolling through selfies, doctors remain adamant that the filtered photographs don’t honestly represent one’s natural self. Everyone wants a flawless appearance, but it’s important to remember most pictures on the internet are altered in some way. A Rhinoplasty can correct misgivings you have related to your nose, just remember you still aren’t going to look like everyone else.

Selfies and Rhinoplasty Surgery

Our dependance upon social media often mirrors the confidence we have within ourselves. Having Rhinoplasty surgery may help you feel better about your selfies and overall appearance. If you’re unhappy with your physical appearance and want a more picture-perfect nose, contact a Rhinoplasty Expert to discuss the procedure in detail.
