Dr. Devgan responds to the people who are against social media filters by saying “People are slamming the concept of Facetune and Photoshop and filters, I feel like if someone is bringing in a micro optimized version of their own face that’s a healthier body image place to start from than bringing in an image of a celebrity who has nothing to do with you; That’s like my philosophical take on that.”

Over the last 20 years machines and injectables has risen. Though machines are still popular for surgeries, how can one resist a non-surgical armamentarium: a powerful way to lift and tighten the skin. Non surgical procedures mean little to no down time and who can fault that!? A Boston- based biotech company called Cytrellis comes the world's first ever dermal micro-coring device.

This is an energy- free needling tool that mechanically drills out minuscule columns of skin- each less than half a millimeter in diameter. This shrinks the surface area of your overall skin. Unlike a facelift, micro-coring does not affect the muscles or fascia of the face. The main goal of a surgery other than trimming away skin is to hoist the fallen skin to recapture a more youthful version of your face. Micro- coring might just be the new non surgical facelift.

There are hundreds of visually based social media accounts that cater to the plastic surgery industry. Many high profile surgeons have marketed themselves through Instagram and Snapchat.  It is incredible how social media has even made its way into the operating rooms of surgeons! Consenting patients and surgeons are sharing these uncensored, graphic videos of going under the knife. It has become a popular trend to put in a specific hashtags like #drdevgan to search and find the latest beauty trends and operations. It has become a an effective marketing strategy to reach new clients. It is incredible how platforms like Instagram make it fun and easy to control and show the world your content. 

By sharing photos and videos of surgical procedures and final results, surgeons like Dr. Devgan have built a monumental following of people who regularly check and engage in their content. This has positively influenced the growth in popularity of surgeons. Ten years ago patients would bring in a magazine photograph of a super model or celebrity and now people are bringing in Instagram filtered photos of themselves.

Dr. Devgan agrees that it is a great way to market yourself but like anything else there are pros and cons to using social media to find your surgeon. Social media is unregulated, which makes it hard to thoroughly and diligently make sure what you are seeing is safe and accurate. We must be careful when watching certain doctors and surgeons who are not board-certified like Dr. Devgan and many of her colleagues. There are plenty of questionable characters abusing the lack of regulation online. Dr. Devgan herself has had her photos and videos stolen!

MTV’S “True Life” one of the first reality television shows to air is coming back after 21 years! Why? Our social media obsessed society has decided that the Kardashian clan is what defines 2019 beauty standards. The first episode of the the Emmy award- winning reality show focuses on people obsessed with looking like the Kardashians. Women are feeling pressured to have a big butt and fake breasts.

Plastic surgery and procedures have evolved dramatically over the decades. In the past people did not feel as comfortable being open about wanting cosmetic plastic surgery. Now, in 2019 celebrities like Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian have paved the way for society to be open and confident regarding cosmetic surgeries and procedures.

According to Dr. Devgan there is less guilt about undergoing procedures. “Five or 10 years ago, people might have brought in pictures of a magazine cover supermodel. Now, they're bringing in pictures of themselves, but just in a slightly optimized way." In a report by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons scientists have called “Snapchat dysmorphia” one of the reasons plastic surgery is steadily increasing. The most popular being the Brazilian butt lift. This focuses on enhancing the overall size, shape, and perkiness of the backside.

A unique rhinoplasty patient

As a plastic surgeon and a mother, I am sometimes faced with unusual circumstances. Recently, a very adorable (yet quite picky) 19 month old referred me a VIP patient for a reconstructive rhinoplasty.

In all seriousness, rhinoplasty is one of the most common-- and most amazingly transformative-- plastic surgical operations. In 2012 alone, over 143,000 rhinoplasties were performed in the United States. Not only can functional rhinoplasty improve the way a person breathes, but a cosmetic "nose job" can greatly improve facial balance.

When done right, a rhinoplasty can make you look more refined and attractive, bringing out the definition of your eyes, cheekbones, mouth, and jawline.
