怕自拍不够美 更多人选择整容
A rise in the popularity of taking a selfie is fuelling demand for plastic surgery, experts have said. This selfie, taken by comedian Ellen DeGeneres at this year's Oscars, became the most retweeted in history
They are the trademark of celebrities such as Kim Kardashian and Justin Bieber.
Now, a rising tide of people are going under the knife desperate to enhance their image, driven by a desire to take a better selfie.
From rhinoplasty to eyelid lifts, plastic surgeons say they have seen a surge in patients keen to improve their image.



And the driving force? Selfies and the pressure people feel to improve their profile on social media sites.



A poll by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery found one in three surgeons have seen a rise in requests for procedures as a result of patients being more aware of their image on social media.



The 2,700 respondents noted a 10 per cent rise in nose jobs, rhinoplasty, in 2013 compared to 2012.



And in that time they said they have seen a seven per cent jump in hair transplants and a six per cent jump in eyelid surgery.



Dr Sam Rizk, a Manhattan-based plastic surgeon, said: 'There has been a 25 per cent increase over the past year-and-a-half to two years.

来自曼哈顿的整形科医生山姆-瑞兹克(Sam Rizk)表示,在过去一年半到两年的时间里,整容市场有了25%的增长。


'That is very significant. They come in with their iPhones and show me pictures. Selfies are just getting to be so crazy.'



But Dr Rizk, who specialises in rhinoplasty, said not everyone who requests surgery needs it because a selfie produces a distorted image that does not represent how a person really looks.



'We all will have something wrong with us on a selfie image,' he said.



'I refuse a significant proportion of patients with selfies because I believe it is not a real image of what they actually look like in person.'



Some patients get upset when Dr Rizk tells them surgery is not necessary, and he knows they will simply go to another surgeon.



'Too many selfies indicate a self obsession and a certain level of insecurity that most teenagers have. It just makes it worse,' he said. 'Now they can see themselves in 100 images a day on Facebook and Instagram.'



New York make-up artist Ramy Gafni, who has worked with clients on selfies and online dating profile photos, suggests using clean makeup, well-defined eyebrows and a bit color on the lips to produce the best selfies.



'You want to enhance your features, perfect your features but not necessarily change your features into something they are not,' he said.
