Popular Selfie-Inspired Plastic Surgery Procedures
Have you ever taken a selfie only to be unhappy with your appearance? If so, you’re not alone. A poll from the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) found one in three plastic surgeons report an increase in facial plastic procedures due to patients being dissatisfied with their self-image on social media. If you are self-conscious about something that you have noticed in a selfie, Dr. Bruce K. Barach offers several facial plastic surgery procedures that can help. Here, he reveals the common selfie-inspired requests he gets from his patients.
For Brighter Eyes
Have you ever snapped a selfie and been shocked by how tired you look? Dark under-eye circles can make you look exhausted, no matter how well-rested you are. Likewise, unsightly puffy upper eyelids can cause you to look tired or even older. Eyelid surgery removes excess skin on the eyelids and minimizes the appearance of wrinkles and under-eye circles for a more refreshed appearance. Minimally invasive procedures such as Restylane and Juvederm can restore volume to the areas underneath the eyes that have become hollow due to age, all while smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines.
For a Refined Neck
Has the dreaded “double chin” ever made an appearance in your selfies? Neck lift surgery can tighten and smoothen skin for a more accentuated jawline and neck. The procedure also eliminates unwanted fat underneath the chin and on the neck. The result is a more youthful and beautiful facial appearance. Ideal candidates for neck lift surgery should have good skin elasticity and be in good overall health.
For a Rejuvenated Face
If more than one part of your facial appearance concerns you, then perhaps it’s time to consider facelift surgery. This procedure addresses an array of aesthetic concerns, including wrinkles, hollow pockets, creases and sagging skin. Facelift surgery removes excess fat and skin and re-drapes the skin of the face for a smoother, more youthful appearance. If you are not ready to undergo facelift surgery or another surgical procedure, Dr. Barach can perform BOTOX. This minimally invasive treatment smoothens out wrinkles and fine lines by relaxing the muscles underneath the skin. The treatment can be used to treat the eyes, forehead, mouth and cheek areas for a smoother appearance.
