  • Selfie filters now set the tone for plastic surgeries

A new viewpoint article revealed the risky effects of smartphone photo filters on mental health conditions such as body dysmorphic disorder and body image issues. A 2017 survey from the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery sound that 55 percent of surgeons report seeing patients who mention selfies as a reason for requesting surgery, compared to 42 percent in 2015.

This condition - called body dysmorphic disorder - affects about 2 percent of people, research shows.

The problem is that these enhanced photos are creating false beauty ideals and leading to esteem issues, often seen in plastic surgery consultations where patients are seeking treatment and using photos of their filtered selfies as reference, Dazed said in reporting on the study in JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery Viewpoint. "I can make people a lot better, but it will take me a lot more time than a week, and it won't be 100 percent".

Before the rise in the popularity of selfies, the most common complaint from people seeking rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a nose job, was the hump of the dorsum of the nose.

What should you do if you have Snapchat dysmorphia?

That's a fixation with an imagined or minor flaw in your appearance based on selfies or apps like Snapchat, Instagram, and Facetune.

"The pervasiveness of these filtered images can take a toll on one's self-esteem, make one feel inadequate for not looking a certain way in the real world, and may even act as a trigger and lead to BDD", wrote Susruthi Rajanala, first author of the viewpoint.

Altering your physical appearance may actually make things worse, because the underlying body dysmorphia at the root of those feelings could go unchecked. Experts need to manage these patients, the authors argue, "in an empathetic and non-judgmental way". "This can be especially harmful for teens and those with BDD, and it is important for providers to understand the implications of social media on body image to better treat and counsel our patients".
