FaceTime Is Making People Get Plastic Surgery (Video)
Apparently, a Washington DC area plastic surgeon has been a hit with patients that are so self conscious by their video chatting appearances that they're asking for phone specific facelifts.
This doctor seems to think that FaceTime Body Dysmorphia is a condition worth treating with surgery. So that people will look better when video chatting:
"Patients come in with their iPhones and show me how they look on [Apple's video calling application] FaceTime," says Dr. Sigal. "The angle at which the phone is held, with the caller looking downward into the camera, really captures any heaviness, fullness and sagging of the face and neck. People say ‘I never knew I looked like that! I need to do something!' I've started calling it the ‘FaceTime Facelift' effect. And we've developed procedures to specifically address it."
