Our “Selfie” Society

The “Selfie” is revolutionizing how we present ourselves in the world via social media. Selfie’s are everywhere! Want proof of just how viral a Selfie can be? Remember…Ellen DeGeneres’s Oscar Selfie was retweeted over 2 million times breaking all records!


Call it self-promotion, or hyper-vanity. Selfie’s are often the first impressions people put out there today. Whether it’s to their friends, a love interest, to find a job, or for online dating, people want their appearances to reflect who they are as well as their inner confidence. Admittedly, there are many Apps that can enhance your Selfie, however, many people turning to Cosmetic Surgery and facial injections in an effort to put their best face forward.

And, the statistics prove it! The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery has reported an increase in requests for facial procedures by patients who wanted to look better online. So, who’s doing it? Young people under thirty because they are seeing more of themselves online has some much more aware of their appearance. The baby boomers because they too are seeing themselves online and want to look good for their age.

As a result of the NEW Selfie Society, the most requested Cosmetic Surgery procedures are currently Nose Reshaping (Rhinoplasty), Facelifts (Rhytidectomy), and Upper/Lower Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty). Wrinkle-reducing Botox®, Dysport and Xeomin and facial fillers like Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse, Belatero, and Voluma XC are popular, non-surgical alternatives as well.
