Rhinoplasty Surgeons Raleigh Durham Chapel Hill N.C.
One in three facial plastic surgeons surveyed experienced an increase in requests for elective procedures due to patients being more self aware of looks in social media, with a 10 percent increase in rhinoplasty in 2013 over 2012.
Renowned rhinoplasy surgeon Sam Rizk, MD, FACS corroborates this trend, noting a spike in patients seeking rhinoplasty due to social media in his own practice.
âSocial media platforms have become omnipresent, consumers look at Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and YouTube before turning on the news,â says Dr, Rizk. âThese channels are image driven, giving consumers a constant self-directed mirror or microscope of their own. This image bombardment often generates more self-scrutiny and can escalate the desire for perceived self-improvement more than ever before.â
