The positive and negative effect of Instagram and the Plastic Surgery Industry
One negative effect of the ‘selfie culture’ is that it is causing women and men to be more self-critical than ever before. They are also more susceptible to self-criticism through comparing their lives to the lives of others on Instagram.
Never before has the plastic surgery industry seen so many clients willing to share their plastic surgery journey in real time. Whether it’s on a private Instagram account or publicly accessed photos, clients are often willing to provide honest feedback in an otherwise secretive industry. Clients are empowered by the notion of sharing their treatment as they are no longer seeking the approval of society. This attitude has led to a change in how society views the plastic surgery industry in 2018. Undergoing surgery to change the way you look is no longer secretive or shameful. In fact it is becoming as common as many other beauty treatments.
Dr Mark Hanikeri, Specialist Plastic Surgeon in Subiaco
At Dr Mark Hanikeri’s office in Subiaco, we believe in empowering clients to feel good about themselves and if they choose surgery to do so, more power to them. What we want clients to remember is that whilst surgery is becoming more common, it is still important to do your research. Having a good understanding of the procedure, and your surgeon’s qualifications is important to ensure you are in good hands.
We also advise staying close to home for treatment so that you have unlimited access to your surgeon post-surgery in the case of an emergency.
