More People Requesting Nose Jobs To Make Selfies Look Better
CBS Local — A picture may be worth a thousand words, but according to a new report a selfie is worth thousands of dollars in plastic surgery to a growing number of patients. A study published in the journal JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery found that selfies make a person’s nose appear to be 30 percent larger than it actually is. “Despite the ease with which selfies are taken, the short distance from the camera causes a distortion of the face owing to projection, most notably an increase in nasal dimensions,” researchers wrote. The study adds that selfies are typically taken about 12 inches away from the face, which dramatically distorts the way a person looks compared to a picture taken five feet away. Despite the illusion created by selfies, surgeons are reporting that more people are requesting nose jobs to correct the way they look. Facial plastic surgeon Boris Paskhover of Rutgers University contributed to the JAMA report and claims several patients at his clinic want surgery because of the way they appear in selfies. “I’d say, ‘Your nose doesn’t look big — there’s distortion when you keep a camera close to your face,'” Dr. Paskhover told Vox. “If all the pictures [you take] are up close, the way you view yourself may be distorted,” Paskhover warned. A January survey by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons (AAFPRS) found that 55 percent of doctors said their patien...
To the Editor We read with great interest the article by Özücer et al. The authors did well to compare the postoperative donor-site pain in patients who underwent costal cartilage harvest, and the separated evaluation of resting pain and movement pain is thoughtful and exquisitely considered and worthy of praise. In this communication, we would like to propose some discussions with the authors.
In Reply We read the letter by Lu and Fan regarding our recently published article. We are happy with the authors ’ interest, praise, and the discussions they’ve contributed. Although the technique has been widely used and reported by many influential authors, we agree with the opinion of Lu and Fan that monopolar electrocautery (ME) causes tissue damage and prolongs wound healing. Nevertheless, we don’t think it is an interference factor for this study because the major aim of what we are investigating is thedownside of ME in that aspect.
The evolution of head and neck reconstruction dates to approximately 1000 B.C. when Sushruta, the father of Indian surgery, introduced the theory for arguably the first regional pedicled flap in rhinoplasty. Ancient Egyptian, Greek, Persian and Indian civilizations expanded on this medical marvel by contributing to discoveries in human anatomy, while Roman physicians described possibilities for local tissue rearrangements for nearly all segments of the face. Following centuries of advancements through different eras with varying types of tissue transfer, the pioneering of free flap surgery dominated the 1960 ’s and 1...
This population-based analysis uses a large insurance claims database to identify risk factors associated with corrective septorhinoplasty after initial treatment for nasal fractures.
CONCLUSION: There is great variation within individual clinical commissioning groups in England regarding the criteria for septorhinoplasty and rhinoplasty. Some criteria seem not to be clinically relevant and difficult to demonstrate. It is recommended that the guidelines are reviewed and harmonised nationally in future revisions.

Conclusions Nasal elongation using ePTFE implantation is a feasible therapeutic approach for patients with short noses. Reliable outcomes and the absence of donor site morbidity contribute to the high patient acceptance. Meticulous surgical technique and careful patient selection are prerequisites for successful results.
Conclusions Based on the results obtained from our work, we can declare that open access is a functionally valid procedure. At 6 months after surgery, the 2 accesses have a comparable functional efficacy.
Conclusions Microvascular replantation following facial dog bite amputation injuries in the pediatric population is the ultimate step in the reconstructive ladder. Strong consideration should be given to microvascular exploration with involvement of large or whole segments of the lip, nose, or ear; however, parents should be counseled extensively regarding the known morbidity of replantation surgery. With meticulous surgical technique and careful postoperative care, replantation after facial dog bite amputation injuries may successfully achieve dramatic and lasting results for pediatric patients.
TUESDAY, June 12, 2018 -- Dorsal reduction has a greater effect than tip manipulation in adding value to social perception of the facial profile of patients undergoing cosmetic rhinoplasty, according to a study published online June 7 in JAMA Facial...
