Procedures for a great selfie

A recent survey found that the average Millennial (adults age 18 to 34) may take up to 25,700 selfies during their lifetime. But just how many of these pictures actually get published on social media? If you’re unhappy with your selfies because of a cosmetic flaw, you’re not alone. Cleveland, OH, plastic surgeon Dr. Joyesh Raj has seen an influx of patients who cite dissatisfaction with their selfies as a reason for seeking cosmetic enhancement. In this blog post, Dr. Raj shares popular procedures that can help you snap your best selfie.

Surgical Options

Facelift is considered to be the gold standard in facial rejuvenation as it addresses multiple aging concerns at once by trimming excess fat and skin and re-draping the skin of the face. Facelift eliminates wrinkles, hollow pockets and sagging skin, creating a younger-looking and smoother appearance.

Do you constantly look tired or exhausted due to puffy eyelids or under-eye bags? Eyelid surgery restores an energetic and youthful look to the eyes by removing sagging skin on the upper eyelids and reducing the appearance of “bags” on the lower eyelids. If necessary, eyelid surgery can be combined with another procedure (e.g., facelift, brow lift) for more rejuvenating results.

If an overly large, asymmetrical nose causes you to be self-conscious, rhinoplasty can help. By reshaping or resizing the nose, rhinoplasty can bring harmony and symmetry to your overall facial appearance.

Non-Surgical Options

Has years of squinting or smiling created prominent crow’s feet and other wrinkles on your face? Botox minimizes the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines by temporarily relaxing the underlying facial muscles, instantly creating a softer and younger look. Dermal fillers like Juvederm and Restylane can also treat wrinkles and have the added benefit of filling in hollow pockets in the face for a fuller and smoother appearance.

Are your selfies plagued by an unsightly double chin? Kybella is a new and innovative injectable treatment designed to dissolve submental fat. With a few treatment sessions (typically four to six over the course of several months), Kybella can turn a poorly defined chin into a sleek and slender jawline.
