According to a recent article, Buzzfeed shows men take more body selfies than women. While women place a heavy focus on capturing flawless faces in their selfies, men concentrate on every contour of their body with a flash and a mirror.
Who’s More SELFISH? Men Vs. Women Selfies
The Rise of Liposuction, Gynecomastia, and the Rhinoplasty Procedure
Kim Kardashian’s Selfish may not have raked up much in sales, but the cash registers are ringing in other quarters.
According to a study by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, gynecomastia in men and rhinoplasty surgery is on a steady rise. Ask any gynecomastia doctor or rhinoplasty specialist; they will tell you that most of their clients request these procedures because they are concerned about how they appear in selfies.
Noses tend to appear bigger and flatter in close-up shots while the lines on the neck appear more pronounced. Photoshopping doesn’t work always.
So, women tend to go under the knife more for rhinoplasty surgery and neck jobs than any other correction or enhancement procedure. Flat abs and sculpted chests are desirable in men, which explains the plethora of torso and chest shots on the Web. This also explains why gynecomastia surgery and hi-def liposculpting are on the rise among men.
How Liposuction and Rhinoplasty Surgery Heals Bruised Self-Esteem
You either love Kim Kardashian, or you love to hate her. The selfie queen evokes powerful emotions. The selfie culture too, has its fierce loyalists and staunch detractors. But the irony is that though the critics equate the rise of the selfie culture with moral degradation, value erosion, and obsessive vanity, they too, post selfies!
The answer is buried deep in our psyche, but LA talent agent Triana Lavey, who has spent $15,000 on corrective procedures, has summed it up aptly. According to Triana, her virtual self is just as important to her as her real self. So self-esteem is at the root of the increase in the number of liposuction, rhinoplasty surgeries, and gynecomastia procedures. We all want to look and feel good. The liposuction prices seem justified when the likes pour in after we post a selfie.
BuzzFeed Shows Men Take More Body Selfies
Kim Kardashian’s Selfish probably flopped because her fans didn’t want to spend money on something that she dishes out liberally and free of cost on Instagram. But the obsession with selfies and the consequent rise in the number of gynecomastia treatments, liposuction, and rhinoplasty procedures lays bare the insecurities that many of us, both men and women, have with our appearances. The insecurities lie at a deeper level of the mind, but plastic surgery can certainly help to heal bruised self-esteem.
