What three cosmetic procedures should you consider to produce the best selfie?
If you’re not in the habit of posting selfies on social media, you’re probably not a millennial. The average millennial spends an hour a week on “selfie duty,” using that time to take, retake, or edit their selfie. Approximately 55% of social media selfies come from millennials, but the Gen X group isn’t far behind.
With the intense interest in selfies – not to mention the unforgiving nature of high-def images – it’s no surprise that cosmetic surgery has surged in popularity. So in this age of selfies, what aesthetic changes produce the best close-up photo?
Let’s explore three popular cosmetic procedures here and if you have any questions, call my office in West Hills, California.
Nose reshaping, or rhinoplasty
Nose reshaping holds third place in the top-five cosmetic procedures performed on all adults. Let’s face it: Your nose has a prominent spot on your face, and many people are distressed by a nose that’s too large, asymmetrical, or out of proportion for the size and shape of their face – all of which get magnified by a selfie.
Nose reshaping can:
- Reduce the size of your nose
- Straighten a crooked nose
- Eliminate bumps or a depression on the bridge
- Adjust the width at the bridge
- Change the position and size of nostrils
- Reshape a nose tip that’s too large, drooping, upturned or hooked
- Correct nasal asymmetry
Eyelid rejuvenation, or blepharoplasty
Puffy or droopy eyelids may be one of the first age-related changes you notice. Even if they’re not the first, eyelid issues have a significant impact on your appearance, making you look tired and sad.
