We’re sure by now you’ve heard the term selfie. It seems everyone, from celebrities to the president, are uploading photos of themselves to social media sites like Facebook and Instagram. But the selfie trend has had one unexpected side effect, especially for men and women who are going through the natural stages of the facial aging process–suddenly, we are seeing much more of ourselves.
Instead of only seeing ourselves in the mirror, we now also see ourselves reflected back in our iPhones, iPads and Facebook newsfeeds. If one was already unhappy about sagging skin and signs of aging, this isn’t always a good thing.
In fact, the latest statistics by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery suggest that one in three facial plastic surgeons report an uptick in the number of patients requesting procedures because they are “more self-aware of looks in social media.” This has given rise to what many are calling the “Facebook Facelift.”
Facial rejuvenation in Denver with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Tanya Atagi is an excellent option for those who want to look younger with beautiful, natural-looking results. Dr. Atagi is pleased to offer facial rejuvenation procedures, from face and neck lifts, to eyelid lifts (blepharoplasties) and more.
“Unfortunately, the selfie trend highlights the area of our faces and necks we’re usually most insecure about,” says Dr. Atagi. “The dreaded turkey neck, hanging jowls and loose, sagging skin on the upper and lower eyelids can dramatically age our appearance. Facial rejuvenation procedures such as facelifts, eyelid lifts and neck lifts can dramatically reduce these signs of aging to look as much as five to ten years younger. With my conservative approach, results are also natural looking, so you can look your best without looking ‘done.’
