Selfies Create Plastic Surgery Boom
With selfies and groupfies gaining more and more prominence, imagine if one such profile picture of yours revealed those wrinkles or faults on your face? Not a good way to go about it, right? We all want to look good and clean in our photos. The fact that the word ‘selfie’ has gained prominence and even made its way into the Oxford English Dictionary is something that outlines the importance of having a clean facial appearance. And simply not just photos, we all want to look good every other time too, or else our virtual lives would be rather a stark contrast to our real one. For e.g. you could imagine how important a clean face would naturally be for an aspiring model or TV personality. However, sometimes no matter what, certain natural elements in the face can be a roadblock. Photoshopping was the old school option to make the face look flawless. Photoshop seems very much of an old trend that’s dying now Selfie Surgery phenomena grows!

Well, believe it or not it is an emerging trend these days with Selfie Surgeries creating an additional demand facial improvement surgeries and treatments. In fact, they have become hugely popular as more people realise the wonders it can actually do to your face. A face lift or fillers are an ideal way to remove any sag, creases, loose skin or fats. Often, a patient is also likely to undertake other forms of facial rejuvenation or cosmetic improvement surgeries like using fillers or nose corrections, brow lifts, neck lifts, lip and eyelid surgery along with face lifts. The non-surgical option of using fillers and lasers is a safe process to undergo for any patient. Because these options provide an entirely nonsurgical process with instant results it eliminates any fear with patients, when they hear something like a surgery. In case you do not agree, then here are some facts and stats for you.
The number of nose jobs done in America has seen a massive 10 percent rise in 2014 while that of eyelid surgery shows 6 percent. The American Academy of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery says there is an increasing demand in patients who are ready to undergo cosmetic surgeries, mainly because of the selfie trend on social media. And, it’s also out there that the early weeks of January 2015 is probably the best to get a face lift done. Why? You might ask! Here’s why. Is there a better time than the first month of the year to get started with a fresher and cleaner look? Yes, most people think not! Huffington Post reports of a talent agent in LA, who spent as much as $15,000 on multiple cosmetic procedures, to look great in her selfies. London-based Weymouth Street Hospital states that these days there is an enormous rush to cosmetic surgeons for all sorts of options. These include, eyelid surgery, brow lifts, Rhinoplasty (nose lifting) and partial and full facelifts. In fact, the demand for face lifts has gone up by around 37% when compared to last year.
One might question whether the self-image, which results from a cosmetic surgery, is worth the cost of undergoing it? So for that answer, you can always turn to some of the well known celebrities who have experienced it, be it Ashley Tisdale or Britney Spears. Most celebrities, who have resorted to some form of cosmetic surgery, have always pointed out that they have mostly gained in terms of rejuvenation. Also worthy of note, is the fact that men are no alien to cosmetic surgeries either. Famous actors and TV personalities like Bruce Jenner, Mickey Rourke and Simon Cowell have all undergone some cosmetic surgery to enhance their looks. Some are also on the lookout for beard transplants these days. Another thing, which patients are pretty concerned about, is how and where they are getting their surgery done, with associated costs also being a primary reason that comes into the question. Cosmetic surgery can be mostly expensive in most nations like the UK, the US or Australia.
A number of factors contribute to such costs, mainly the surgeon’s consultation fees, his/her experience and the location. The source of funding needs consideration on the part of the patient wanting to undergo such a surgery. For e.g. In Australia, one cannot avail Medicare or private insurance for any cosmetic surgery. Because available disposable income makes monetary matters difficult for many people, a wiser option would then be to have it performed abroad, and by availing financial help from institutions that offer help for such surgeries. These intuitions are also known to offer very flexible application and payment options, which make it easy for patients to adhere. Coming to the choice of destinations, especially for those who prefer a surgery abroad, Thailand is emerging as a booming place for all sorts of cosmetic surgery. Not only does it serve as a cheaper option, but also that it has fantastic cosmetic surgeons in place to carry out the procedures for you. Let not forget the recovery period in. Thailand doubles up as a great holiday destination, so something like a cosmetic surgery holiday sounds perfect!
Destiny Meditravel happens to be an excellent option for those looking to have their cosmetic surgeries or face lifts done in Thailand. Phuket is the ideal destination, with great travel packages in the offing. In fact, a sixteen night long package will set you back by around $A4900, something that would start at around $A6000 in Australia alone. On a similar note, costs in the US and the UK can be a whole lot higher as well. Destiny Meditravel is known to provide for an estimated cost for the process, so you will not have to worry about any hidden costs either. There is also all round support for application for funding, for when you need it, and also the ease of having it done online for convenience. As we are well into the first month of 2015, it expected that more and more people will continue to visit surgeons for cosmetic surgeries.
Just as Melanie Bawden CEO of Destiny Meditravel, says, “In 2014, we saw a significant increase in clients traveling to Phuket for Facial Rejuvenation. We had huge increases in clients having facelifts, eyelift, and rhinoplasty. Facial rejuvenation treatments have gained popularity such as facial laser resurfacing, fillers and especially lip augmentation.” “User engagement on social media sites grows daily, and the selfies phenomena will continue to escalate the number of Cosmetic Surgery clients we send to Thailand this year.” With your favorite celebrities, even male ones, taking to cosmetic surgeries to enhance their looks, don’t you think it’s time for you to get going?
Let be honest now, many of you would be willing to go for a facial rejuvenation scheme to take part in the selfie surgery trend that seems to have taken the world by storm?
