New technology is responsible for one of the largest surges in plastic surgery ever. Selfies are having a huge impact on the facial plastic surgery industry.

Since TV host Ellen Degeneres tweeted a photo of her with a handful of Hollywood stars at the Oscars, and now holds the record for the most retweeted image on Twitter, more and more people are taking selfies.

With more selfies, more people are seeing themselves in a photo and are more self-critical of themselves. Increased photo sharing has added up to increased plastic surgery. Most of the surgery is for hair transplants, eyelid surgery and nose jobs.
