Selfies make your nose look bigger

No, that's not his real nose.

Two-thousand-seventeen's selfie-based plastic surgery requests rose from 13 percent in 2016, according to American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, INC. research.

"Just like the 24-hour news cycle, where we have constant information, with selfies and phones we have constant feedback about what our appearance might be", says Dr. Samuel Lin, an associate professor of plastic surgery at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. In the case of noses, selfies make them look thicker and wider than they actually are, and that's a problem because plastic surgeons say people generally prefer smaller noses.

The JAMA study breaks down selfie face with help from Stanford University's Department of Computer Science.

But when the camera is closer, around a foot away from a person's face, the relative nose size can increase by up to 30% for men, and 29% for women.

The researchers explained that the nasal distortion occurs when a camera lens is moved close to someone's face. The model determined the magnitude of the distortive effect by presenting the face as a collection of parallel planes perpendicular to the main camera axis. "Despite the ease with which selfies are taken, the short distance from the camera causes a distortion of the face owing to projection, most notably an increase in nasal dimensions", researchers wrote.

Despite her efforts to quell fears of a hard border in Ireland, she accidentally began a sentence: "To achieve a hard border-". To this end, Britain would "make a strong commitment that its regulatory standards will remain as high as the EU's".


They found people engaged in taking lots of selfies have to opt for plastic surgery. All the social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram plays a vital role to make selfie a trend for many. This leads to an "impact" on their emotional well being he said. "It's a way to prove what is true in your life, or at least what you want people to believe is true". Hence, selfie queens and kings should prefer using selfie-stick if they don't want to have a bulgy nose. It's far easier than plastic surgery.
