If you’re a visual person who enjoys using social media, you may already have an Instagram account. As one of the fastest-growing social networks, Instagram allows you to share photos about your life and style with friends. Many Instagram users share selfies, which are self-portraits that can be visually enhanced using the mobile app’s filters. With the adoption of this picture-sharing platform comes an increase in plastic surgery requests to look like the ultimate Instagram-filtered selfie.
Some of the most popular procedures patients are requesting to achieve their ideal look for selfies include laser treatments, broadband light photofacial therapy, neck lift procedures, Botox treatment, and Juvederm injections.
Cosmopolitan Magazine has provided surgeon-approved tips for creating flattering selfies using your mobile phone:
For smoothing pores, try using either the Rise or Toaster Instagram filters.
To highlight cheekbones and de-emphasize double chins, try the duckface.
Use classic black-and-white filters to make your appearance more flattering.
