According to a study by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS), the selfie trend has a tremendous impact on the demand for facial plastic surgery. Patients are becoming more conscious of the way they look in social media. Patients are more critical than ever when it comes to assessing their images in different social media platforms, such as Instagram and Snapchat. Everyone just wants to put their best face forward regardless of the reason.
Plastic Surgery in Younger People
Social media plays an influential role in the lives of teens. It also has an impact on their self-esteem. Thus, it is not surprising that social media has driven younger people (those under 30) to undergo facial plastic surgery. The awareness that people have of the process of aging is on the rise. They also know what they can do to look even younger.
Men and Women Are Still Different
According to the study, women are still most likely to be the candidates for facial plastic surgery compared to men. Facelifts, rhinoplasties, ablative skin resurfacing, and blepharoplasty are the most common surgical procedures performed on women. Botox, hyaluronic acid injections, microdermabrasion, and non-ablative resurfacing are the most common non-surgical procedures among ladies.
On the other hand, the most common procedures done on men are Botox, hyaluronic acid injections, rhinoplasty, and hair transplants.
