Selfies inspire plastic surgery

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) - The popularity of self portraits, or 'selfies' appears to have given the cosmetic surgery industry a boost.

A study from leading plastic surgeons reveals an up tick in facial procedures as a direct result of 'selfie' dissatisfaction. One in three facial plastic surgeons say they've seen an increase in surgical requests among people wanting to improve their look on their social media profiles.

In fact, from 2012 to 2013, there has been a 10% increase in rhinoplasty, or nose jobs, a seven-percent increase in hair transplants and a six-percent increase in eyelid surgery.

-Study was led by American Academy of Facial Plastic Reconstructive Surgery
