It seems Instagram is single-handedly driving traffic right into the offices of cosmetic surgeons (at least according to the experts), who are propelling these non-invasive techniques to the forefront.
People crave the satisfaction they get from the “likes” and “comments,” so when it doesn’t translate to their real lives, they search for alternative solutions.
It seems social media apps and Instagram is single-handedly driving traffic right into the offices of cosmetic surgeons (at least according to the experts), who are propelling these non-invasive techniques to the forefront.
Even men are jumping on the bandwagon with more and more “Brotox” requests (Botox for men) and liquid rhinoplasty and facelifts.
According to recent reports from The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, various procedures among male patients seeking fillers and other enhancing hydraulics have skyrocketed up to 43 percent in a short five year period.
Many surgeons are attributing this rise to the increased usage of social media platforms. This only further proves the issue is a social media fallout, not a gender-specific disorder.
Internet transformations are a part of our daily feeds, and people have the ability to continually take their looks to the next level with these filtered makeovers. Instagram has been the contributing factor for people wanting to look like their favorite celebrities. You can now download pictures and videos from Instagram from social influencers profiles.
The current trend is blurring the lines between the real and the fake and stirring up immense controversy with this plastic surgery initiative.
However, even the top surgeons aren’t miracle workers. Ask any leading professional or top surgeon in his or her field, like Dr. Douglas Steinbrech.
“It is really about maturity, sensible possibilities and communication,” Steinbrech says. He will turn away individuals who request ridiculous procedures, like those highlighted on TV, and who bring in clearly altered social media photographs. He explains it is a sure sign of a much bigger problem.
There is a level of morality that comes with the territory of being a board certified plastic surgeon.
The experts in the industry are advocates for realism, even in their skilled craft of turning ducklings into swans.
