Selfish activities have become a part of everyday life in the world community, anyone, not least of all ages and community groups, seems to all want to be part of this activity. You will feel this as an extraordinary phenomenon, especially in today's urban society.

But you can just deny this assumption, as written by a lifestyle website, if including people who like to do selfie, should reduce the narcissistic activities.

It is true that if this has an impact on a person's physique, CNN Indonesia quotes, today, new research suggests that selfies can make the nose grow over time by 30 percent.

They write, that the nose looks enlarged not because of the effects of flash lights used during selfie, regardless this is just an illusion caused by distortion in the brain self-perpetrators who are increasingly 'obsessed' with perfection.

The study, based on data disclosed by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons in the United States, quotes Travel and Leisure, stating that 42 percent of prospective plastic surgery patients reason that the physical is not perfect, especially in the nose.

You know the reality, the desire to perform plastic surgery procedures to make themselves look more attractive in social media.

Samuel Lin, a plastic surgeon at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, gave a little picture.

"Too often a selfie with a camera spacing of less than five feet makes us aware of the lack of body shape we have, for people who are obsessed with social media, plastic surgery is a way to correct the shortcomings."

He added that at this time their side often cautioned prospective patients who want to do plastic surgery.

Needs are unstoppable to appear perfect in social media, so he did not advise patients to directly do plastic surgery. He gives more enlightening suggestions, take the other side by giving prospective patients to selfie from different angles.

Say if there is a different suggestion from not advocating selfie, he says, "Simply, ask someone else to take our picture when traveling."

I think it's better, apart from distancing the distortion of the brain, asking for help to others can also be an effort to add friends on the way.
