Selfie filters now set the tone for plastic surgeries

'Snapchat dysmorphia' is real Plastic surgeons report increase in procedures to make people look more like they do on Instagram

One tool that's got people particularly excited is Snapchat filters, which enables a user to make themselves appear as a flawless, stylized version of themselves.

Snapchat dysmorphia is a play on a similar disorder: body dysmorphia, or body dysmorphic disorder.

In recent years, the number of people seeking plastic surgery because they want to improve how they look in selfies has been increasing.

4 killed in Canada shooting
It happened in the Brookside Drive area where there are a number of shops and houses. "It was sort of like a pop, pop, pop, pop". At least four people were killed in a shooting incident in the eastern Canadian city of Fredericton , police said on Friday.

Ultimately, this can trigger a condition known as body dysmorphic disorder (BDD), which is an excessive preoccupation with a perceived flaw in appearance and falls within the obsessive-compulsive spectrum.

In a 2017 survey, The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery found that 55 percent of surgeons reported consulting with patients who desired to undergo expensive surgeries in order to achieve better selfie results.

"The angle and close distance at which selfies are taken may distort facial dimensions and lead to dissatisfaction", they write. Before selfies skyrocketed to popularity, researchers say, the most common reason for those seeking rhinoplasty, a.k.a. a nose job, was because someone wanted to reduce the hump on the bridge of their nose.

Compounding the issue, not just for plastic surgeons but for friends who do a doubletake when they see the plain old you, is that more people are touching up their photos than ever before. Requests for hair transplants and eyelid surgical procedures have also increased as people seek the ideal selfie.

Sure, maybe you want to take better selfies, but altering your appearance to do so isn't necessarily the best path, experts say. They use Snapchat or Facetune to edit their selfies and make them feel prettier. "This is an alarming trend because those filtered selfies often present an unattainable look and are blurring the line of reality and fantasy for these patients", the report read. "They check off one thing, and it's gone". Instead, the Boston University researchers recommend the patients be treated with psychological interventions like therapy and medication.

"It can be argued that these apps are making us lose touch with reality because we expect to look perfectly primped and filtered in real life as well".

The authors argue that doctors need to be aware of the implications social media can have for their patients' self-esteem and overall health.
