As times have changed, new cosmetic surgery trends have emerged. For example, in the early days of cosmetic procedures, only women were having them done. Now, it is far more socially acceptable for men to get facial injections or go under the knife. Furthermore, though breast augmentation surgery is still the most popular cosmetic procedure, 2012 saw a seven percent decline from the year before. All of this begs the question, “What does 2013 hold?”
While that remains to be seen, we can tell you that a new motivation for enhancing the body has taken hold: the desire to improve one’s online appearance. No longer do we live in a world where it is good enough to just look good in person. With the advent of Skype and FaceTime, it is possible to live chat with another person over the phone or the internet. That means they get to see your face as you talk. Nobody wants to be seen at anything less than their absolute best, especially if the conversation has dating or employment implications attached to it. With most smartphones and digital cameras possessing the ability to shoot HD pictures and videos, even the slightest imperfection will show up. That can cost anyone the ability to make a good first impression. Do not let that be you.
