SEVERAL weeks ago, a plastic surgeon in Virginia started a media frenzy when he publicized a new procedure that he said could help people look younger when they appear on Skype and other video chat services. He named the surgery the FaceTime Face-Lift, after the popular iPhone feature.
“People don’t come in asking for a FaceTime Face-Lift per se,” the surgeon, Dr. Robert K. Sigal, of the Austin-Weston Center for Cosmetic Surgery in Reston, Va., said in a YouTube video. “What they’ll say is that ‘I don’t like the way I look when I’m video chatting.’ ”
[…] Roughly a quarter of the 100 face-lift patients he has a year cited the way they look on webcams as a reason for going under the knife, he said, including his own wife. Dr. Malcolm Z. Roth, president of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, said that other plastic surgeons had heard similar concerns.
