    They have plastic surgery for THIS?

    Wouldn't learning how to use Photoshop be cheaper?

    So itís with a degree of sadness, if not inevitability, that the American Academy of Facial and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) has reported a 31 per cent uptick in facial plastic surgery due to a desire to look more attractive in social media profile pictures.

    Re: They have plastic surgery for THIS?

    I think it is so dumb to get face lift to make themselves look pretty.. you can have a pretty face, but still not feeling better for themselves on the inside.. plastic surgery to me is just fake because you are not the real you.

    It's your body. If you want to make yourself look more attractive or less attractive, why shouldn't you be able to?

    Re: They have plastic surgery for THIS?

    Well....I think it's more to make the face more symmetrical. Studies have shown for years that the human mind considers a symmetrical face more attractive (and it also tends to translate into good photos). I think this is something people have done in the past for basic aesthetic purposes (being more symmetric) and people have just found a new use/re-positioned it marketing wise for a socially conscious crowd. I can actually see people who may need it for their profession (social media liaisons, etc). With every new industry, in this case, social media...there is always an outgrowth of support professions, specialized items and in this case cosmetic procedures.

    Yes, symmetry is satisfying.

    Then why are they doing it for Facebook when they haven't bothered to do it for family photo albums?

    Because family photos are for family, and who cares what they think?

    Has any plastic surgery place taken advantage of this? "Half off if you mention in your Facebook profile that you're getting the procedure done at our location!"

    Reporters are desperate for stories. I'd bet this started as a new angle on what is, after all, just another plastic surgery feature.

    As I said...I think people have been doing it for years to be more symmetric...and surgeons and media have just decided to market it for the purpose of social media as well because it is extremely "hot" at the moment. Hot market=more money. After hooking the socially conscious, surgeons are also able to point out the traditional benefits that people have sought through this surgery of years (such as the list of studies on symmetrical faces and attractiveness/perception).

    There are those who will look at this from a marketing edit and those who will look at this as an unneeded procedure (some people are just against plastic surgery for some reason -gsdx I am not talking about you, I'm just talking in general).

    PS - most people don't have thousands of dollars when they are taking a family photo at eight....and even if they do...an eight year old CANNOT CONSENT to cosmetic enhancement.

    Why is that stupid? From what I understand, the only thing less desirable place for hair than feet is the back.

    It is a pitiful statement of the decline of good judgment. Although they have every right to make any expenditures to support their vanity, they also have the right to be judged for their shallowness and foolishness.

    There are higher values in humanity. Vanity is not one of them.

    Reject the neutral philosophy that all values are equal -- they are not.

    No, because the people they want to look better in front of are their actual friends who would know the difference.

    This study doesn't shock me at all. People take (and see) way more pictures of themselves on a regular basis than they ever did due to social media and the availability of digital photos.

    I also don't think this is stupid. Perhaps some older men from a different generation or from other cultures don't find it embarrassing, but I would never be comfortable with myself being intimate or in public with hairy feet or a hairy back or hairy shoulders. If men are comfortable with hair in those areas, more power to them, but not me. I also never saw "hobbit feet" on any guy in life.

    Unless you are having reconstructive surgery all you are doing is papering over the cracks. You are not addressing the real reason you are having the procedure, which is because you don't like yourself

    Re: They have plastic surgery for THIS?

    I really don't see why this vanity is somehow worse than any other vanity because it's done for a social medium like facebook. Fixing the outside of the house in hopes that people will want to come in is absolutely nothing new; it's not an "abysmal turn" for society - it's the result of the ever-changing society.

    I'm not even playing devils' advocate here - I would rather die and be reincarnated than have someone fix, say, my nose. But acting like this is a new low... is a new low.

    Feel free to swing by next time you're in town. My feet aren't overly hairy, but I do have hair there. And I have plenty on my back and shoulders. No problems with either.

    I actually like hairy feet on a guy. They look like guy feet.
    Americans need to keep their guns so they can protect themselves from gun violence just like Nancy Lanza did. And like Chris Kyle did. And like Gabby Giffords did. And like Tom Clements did. And like Michael Piemonte. And Joseph Wilcox.

    Definitely. An acquaintance of my mom got some plastic surgery on her neck for a flap of skin that was, yes, a bit ugly, but mostly was both a physical annoyance and a medical problem, because sores developed if she wore anything with a collar. That's just one example, but there are lots of good practical reasons for plastic surgery, just as for removing warts or thick calluses and such.

    If it wasn't Facebook, it would be something else. In this day and age, people see WAY more photos of themselves than even five years ago. Lets not turn this into another "I'm superior because I resist technology" thread.

    Re: They have plastic surgery for THIS?

    Not gonna lie, I'm probably one of these folks.

    After the umpteenth time of getting tagged in a photo that I find as fun to look at as a car crash, I am sickened. I'm likely getting medical insurance to cover a necessary nasal surgery in the spring... so now I'm looking into getting cosmetic changes in connection with the surgery if I feel it can help the way I think of my look.

    Being on social media coupled with the abundance digital cameras just make your flaws all so in-your-face. I've always hated cameras and I have probably less than ten photos of myself between 1998 and 2003. I've got thousands from 2004 and beyond. And being a photographer myself, having a million amazing photos of others while every photo snapped of me is completely shitty, is just the icing on the cake.

    I get exactly why surgeries are soaring.

    I would rather these people consider liposuction or stomach stapling.

    It's about the jawline..if they worried about how they look in facebook photo- take a better pic with more prominent jawline
    that's what I read.

    Well...still suck if they have sunken jaw/chin -.-

    Re: They have plastic surgery for THIS?

    I am superstitious about this kind of stuff. I think God... and my soul... wants me to love myself unconditionally as I am and evolve ....I think any kind of challenges I have internally or externally are as much a gift as any kind of curse. I think we have a choice as to how we decide to perceive ourselves and I think everyone should exercise free will and do what is right for them.

    I am also afraid of worshipping images (what appears to be versus what is...that includes images of beauty...most of which are false)...I think it will damn my soul and force me to come back and learn the lesson all over again.
