We’re just 1 month into the year 2018 and it’s already shaping up to be one of the most exciting yet. We’ve got computers the size of a pen cap affixed on our faces, cars are well on their way to driving themselves and even your toothbrush can get WiFi these days. One of the most popular trends enabled by our ultra-connected world is affecting the lives of middle school girls, world class athletes and even distinguished heads of state equally. We’re talking, of course, about selfies.
Improve Your Appearance with Non-Invasive Procedures
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few years, you’ve probably heard of (or more likely seen) the popular trend of taking a self-photograph with a smartphone either at an arm’s length or by pointing the camera at a bathroom mirror. Selfies have become so popular in fact that the word itself was inducted into the Oxford English Dictionary way back in 2013.
For all the fun a selfie can bring, there is a darker side to the practice that is starting to come to light. The American Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery recently released new data which showed that 58% of new patients were less than 30 years old. What would cause a twentysomething to pursue plastic surgery at an age when wrinkles are hardly a concern? Most point to the selfie trend as the culprit. People are hyper-aware of their own faults with so many pictures flying all over the internet. It’s easy to look at your own selfie and compare it to those posted by famous, beautiful people. Many feel like cosmetic surgery is the only option to change their angle of their jawline or make their cheeks look fuller.
The experts at Delray Beach Plastic Surgery aren’t advocates of someone that young going under the knife when there are so many less invasive avenues to pursue which can be just as effective as surgery. Injectables are a much better option for a young adult who wants to look healthier, feel more confident and help prevent wrinkles from appearing down the road. Most people can even go right back to work after an injectable procedure which isn’t the case with a full face lift.
Getting ahead of your wrinkles and acting now is a great way to ensure your skin looks beautiful for years to come. Preventative measures are generally more cost effective than reactive ones so contact Delray Beach Plastic Surgery today and make an appointment!
