San Diego, CA (PRWEB) May 30, 2014

A recent news article reveals the undeniable connection between the impact of social media and increases in plastic surgery procedures. Many plastic surgeons are reporting that now more than ever, patients are seeking cosmetic procedures to improve the way they look online. This trend is becoming increasingly common among young people under the age of 30.

“From social media platforms to online dating sites, people of all ages are constantly sharing photos of themselves to the public. It’s only natural that people want to look their best online,” said plastic surgery expert Dr. Chasan.

The popularity of photo-sharing sites such as Instagram and Snapchat, not to mention the “selfie” trend, has caused many people to scrutinize their appearance more than usual. Many people are unsatisfied with the look of their aging skin, excess fat, or disproportionate features. This dissatisfaction increases when they view themselves in photographs that are shared across the internet.

“A photograph can often magnify skin and body imperfections. When we look at ourselves in photos, the awareness that others will be viewing the picture can increase our desire to change certain aspects of our appearance,” explained Dr. Chasan.

At Ranch and Coast Plastic Surgery in San Diego, Dr. Chasan offers a variety of cosmetic procedures that allow patients to take control of how they appear online. For patients concerned with aging skin, innovative laser skin resurfacing treatments can improve the appearance of the skin by minimizing wrinkles, sun damage, and pigmentation. Patients who want to feel more confident about the way their body looks in pictures can enhance their midsection with a tummy tuck.

“The way people interact online is becoming increasingly visual and plastic surgeons are now responding to a growing need for patients to look and feel great about themselves online,” stated Dr. Chasan.
