We’re sure by now you’ve heard the term “selfie” – it seems everyone, from the president to celebrities and your friends and family are uploading pictures of themselves posing to social media. Whereas we used to see ourselves primarily in the mirror, all of a sudden, we’re constantly confronted with our own faces in newsfeeds throughout the day. And, not surprisingly, not all of us love what we see.
In fact, the latest statistics by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery suggested that one in three facial plastic surgeons have reported an uptick in the number of patients requesting procedures because they are “more self-aware of looks in social media,” primarily selfies. Some media outlets are even calling these procedures the “Facebook facelift.”
Here at Aespala MedSpa & Plastic Surgery in Oak Brook, we see a wide variety of Chicago patients who are unhappy with their appearance in person as well as in photographs. These include sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles, jowls, “turkey neck” and more. With our wide variety of cosmetic surgical procedures such as facelift, neck lift, eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) and brow lift, we can reduce these signs of aging for smoother, lifted, younger-looking skin.
Incisions with these procedures are well hidden and typically heal very well, often making them unperceivable. The majority of these facial rejuvenation procedures are performed under general anesthesia and yield results can last 15 or more years with optimal care.
