In our selfie-obsessed world, many people are less than pleased with how they look in snapshots. 

A renowned plastic surgeon has developed what he calls “The Facebook Facelift” that some folks just might “like.”

So how many takes do you do before posting that “#nofilter” selfie?

“I’m on Facebook and FaceTime and Skype and my concern is the way I look on social media and it’s something that more people are using every day and I don’t think I look so good from the angle that my phone shows and my computer shows,” said patient Ann Hammond. 

Hammond remembers a Skype chat with her daughter in Atlanta that was particularly jarring. 

“And she was like, ‘What’s going on with your neck?’ because I think when you are doing it you are shooting it from this angle and you see things you normally don’t see when you’re trying to take your own picture,” Hammond said. 

Plastic surgeon Franklin Rose said many people, particularly women, are less than pleased with their appearance on social media. 

“Particularly on Facebook and FaceTime, lifting procedures,” he said. “You can see her neck is very crepe-y, there’s lots of loose skin here, so this should be a nice, straight forward procedure to get this lifted and rejuvenated.”

Hammond, who is newly single, is getting a stem cell facelift and eyelid rejuvenation. 

“Now we’re talking certain fat transpositions that have a certain stem cell component and of course we’re able to keep the incisions tucked well behind the hair so you really won’t see any scars after about 10-12 days; she’ll be able to Facebook and FaceTime all she wants,” Rose said. 

According to the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive surgery, facial cosmetic procedures are up nearly 10 percent, with the biggest rise seen in women in their 20s. 

Some experts attribute that increase to the popularity of social media.
