"Selfie" is a common way to take pictures today. It's an easy way to get a picture of yourself or a group of people.
But some plastic surgeons say the trend could cause an increase in plastic surgery or Botox requests across the country.
"I think using smartphone technology with selfie mode on their cameras can make people a little too obsessed with their looks," Dr. Jay Lucas, a Knoxville plastic surgeon.
A recent report by JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery reveals that a "selfie" distorts the nose and makes it look up to 30% bigger.
"These filters, in which people can morph online and have a picture of themselves that they think may be created, may not be very good for people," Lucas said.
He said the right way to judge your features with a mirror, in natural lighting or with a 3D imaging system. The machine allows a sham operation to see what the end product would look like. Overall, Lucas said that it's important that people feel comfortable with what they are, and that people understand that every operation is a serious procedure.
