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...

AbstractA 47-year-old female patient undergoing hyaluronic acid injection in the glabella region suffered intravascular injection leading to marked discoloration (whitening) of the whole angiosome of the supratrochlear artery, extending to the areas of the anastomoses to the left upper eyelid, the dorsum of the nose, and the left sidewall of the nose. The syringe was immediately withdrawn while aspirating and prompt salvage counter-measures were taken, including application of warm compresses, vigorous massaging, oral administration of aspirin, repeated injections of hyaluronidase, and application of nitroglycerine paste o...

AbstractBackgroundIn Asian rhinoplasty, a septal extension graft can be used for both tip projection and derotation of the alar cartilage. However, patients often do not have enough harvestable septal cartilage to create the septal extension graft. We therefore devised a method with which to fix the derotated alar cartilage with a small amount of septal cartilage.MethodsFrom January 2012 to December 2016, 23 patients underwent short nose correction with a septal half extension graft made of septal cartilage and were postoperatively monitored for at least 6  months. The alar cartilage was completely separated from the ...
