In modern Era “Selfies” have become trendier in any community. Everyone is having an interest in taking Selfies but especially it has been seen in young adults. They are totally crazy about selfies but let us tell you that there are some absurd things in the selfies which are taken. Selfies make your nose look fat. Shocked? Yes, it is true! A recent study was conducted on selfies and the result is now in front of all. Scientist Paskhover, who was involved in the study said, “Selfies make your nose look wider and thicker when it really isn’t, and people like a smaller nose.” According to the report published in the journal JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery, selfies can increase observed nose size by 30% and nose width by 7%. Researchers created an arithmetical model on which they drew a rough sketch of an average male and female face to analyze the spins when a phone was 12 inches and 5 feet distance away.
After examining the results, they discovered that photos taken at a distance of 12 inches had enlarged nose size by 30 percent for men and 29 percent for women, as compared to photographs taken at an infinite camera distance. Images taken from five feet away did not alter the nose size. American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons has disclosed that 55 percent of doctors had patients demanding cosmetic techniques to improve their exteriors. The study also revealed that the percentage was up from 42 percent more than the previous year.
Dr. Boris Paskhover said, “One of my concerns is, I don’t want a society, in general, to be misleading, I don’t want people to think. ‘This is what I look like,’ when they see a selfie. You don’t look like that. You look good.” There are about 8 billion citizens living on the intact planet. “The Selfie phenomenon might be causing people to engage in surgeries based on photographs that distort their features,” Paskhover says. Due to selfie addiction, about 218,924 were the nose reshaping cosmetic surgeries. Day by day cosmetic surgeries have trended up over the last several years, and they continue to grow due to selfies.
According to the plastic surgery data, nose reshaping was the third most common cosmetic surgical procedure in 2017. It typically costs $6,000 to $15,000 per procedure, according to Dr. Boris Paskhover. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Rhinoplasty and other methods of plastic surgery are cogitated to be safe, but in any other surgical procedure, risks are involved such as infection, poor wound healing, and skin discoloration. “The biggest risk I see with Rhinoplasty is that if you go to someone who’s inexperienced, aesthetic outcomes are variable,” Paskhover said.
